Review summary

We obviously love this itinerary because this was our third time on the exact same trip.


5 out of 5
Embarkation was a breeze. We had all received our Medallions in the mail and it literally took a couple minutes to check us in. Attach your Medallion to your lanyard and wear it before you enter the check-in.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was pretty good, but truthfully, our last cruise was on the Ruby Princess and the menu had selections we liked better. The meals just tasted better on the Ruby too.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Plenty to do, day and night. Or, do nothing!


5 out of 5
The Royal had the very best Cruise Director (Matt O.) and his team was outstanding.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

Super clean and easy to get around.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
There was nothing wrong with the cabin but if you book this one, be aware there are pull-down twin beds above the queen bed. Learned my lesson after I bumped my head. A less clumsy person most likely wouldn’t have done that.

Ship tip

Get the Medallion and wear it all the time. You will save plenty of time avoiding lines, ordering food and drinks, etc. Also, you can keep in touch with your party.
