Review Summary

We loved every minute of our cruise with RCI! Food was incredible,entertainment good fun... cabin was lovely (fairly spacious, though we had an inter-leading door and noisy kiddies next door.) Staff made every minute special, Orlando and Enzo were great fun. The venues for shows, theatre and Centrum, were lovely, and there was something happening all the time, without there ever being a crowded feeling. Even on days at sea, when it was sometimes hard to get a deckchair exactly where you wanted, you still didnt feel cramped and aggro over the food, the lines kept moving in the Windjammer, there was always plenty. Snacks in other venues were super and varied, I couldnt believe the quality ingredients, and the fresh fruit available. (I tried to balance healthy and naughty things.) Many people seemed to buy the drinks package and passed out fast in the sun, we bought reasonably priced french wines at dinner (and the bottles were kept for us each night till they were finished.) Free drinks were great for hot days, iced water, juice, iced tea and lemonade, I never bought other drinks! I spent nearly NOTHING on the boat...found it very economical and never went without anything. A great deal! Never did the ship excursions, just found cool stuff to do in every port. A perfect holiday. Couldn't fault service and value.
