Nice relaxing trip

Sail Date: October 03, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The size of the junior stateroom was nice. We traveled with another couple and had plenty of room for the four of us to hang out in the room when we wanted.

The food options were numerous and all very good. The dinners were very good, but made especially nice by our servers, who really did a fantastic job.

The stops were nice, and we took several excursions. The only issue was with one of the United excursions (not booked directly with Royal Carribean). They cut the departure time too close, then when the bus got stuck in traffic we ended up being late for the ship. The crew on duty at the ship were not very happy, but it was totally out of our control. In the end we made it on board, but it was a very stressful incident that could have been avoided had the tour been coordinated with our 'on board' leave time.

The best part was the United Athens excursion to the Acropolis. We ended up with a driver and guide for the four of us in a small van. They were able to accommodate our preferences, and we were not at all rushed.

Overall the cruise was great, and we liked the ship and itinerary.

Cabin / Stateroom
We thought the Jr suite was a little small at first, but after seeing the normal balcony room we realized we actually had good space.

The wait staff at the King and I was exceptional. The workout area was small but suitable and I was able to work out while on vacation.
