Review SummaryThis was the first cruise for my husband and I. We are easy going but very particular about where we stay on vacations. This beautiful ship exceeded our expectations and the service was premier! For example, at dinner the first night, my husband ordered a drink and from that point on, his drink was ready and waiting for him each night afterwards. Our cabin steward, our waiters, our bartender all knew us by name after the first night. The officers on the ship, from the captain on down were very accessible and friendly. Our cruise director was an amazing guy with a tremendous amount of energy! His efforts to keep people engaged in activities were impressive and he always got the crowd going.
There is a lot to do on the ship to keep one busy. There weren't as many kids on the boat, but probably because of the dates we went. It was fun to people watch as there were so many nationalities represented on the cruise. In addition, people were mosly in their 'happy place' and were very friendly. We met many interesting folks from all over the world.
To sum up our experience, we booked our next cruise with Royal Caribbean before we got off the ship.
