Review summary

We loved the staff, dance and language classes, shuffleboard/mini golf, gym, food choices, kids' club, and itinerary.  The one bad part was when we were told we had to pay reciprocity fees for Argentina as we were getting on the ship, $640 for my family of 4.  We would have liked and/or Royal Caribbean to have told us that BEFORE we were embarking.

We love putting our stuff away in our tiny cabin; there's just enough room. I sleep so well in those big, comfy beds in those dark, dark rooms.
