We have been on several cruises and this one was one of the nicest.The ship was beautiful, lots of wood detail like you see on older wooden boats. The ship was one of the cleanest we have been on. The help was very friendly and always going the next mile for you. It's amazing how they go from one to the next cruise and never miss a beat. The stateroom was a balcony and was very nice. I missed having a coffee pot in the room as all of the other ships we taken had one. The departing and arrival back in port went very smoothly. They really have it down and it moves right along.The only complaint we had was the open dining rooms. The food tables are set up independently by food groups and so people were moving about like in a maze.  There was no direction so by the time you had all your choices your food was usually cold. They need better direction to move in so everyone goes the same way. We would definitly take another Royal Caribbean cruise with hopes they find a better way in the  open dining rooms.The independent dining rooms were excellant.

It would be nice to have more going on when you return to the ship after going ashore. Like live music around the pool.
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
New Orleans, Louisiana
Took extra days before cruise which was nice to really see New Orleans.
Key West, Florida Not enough time here if you have never been here before.
Nassau, Bahamas
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Beautiful island was a very nice afternoon to just enjoy the sun and water.


If you like being on the ship more than going to so many different ports this cruise is for you. We had plently of time on the ship aand not coming and going which we enjoyed.But that is one of the reasons we took this particular cruise. Some cruises you are at a different port everyday.
