Review summary

Symphony is a great ship. I did feel as though it was crowded at times but it was at capacity since we sailed during a week with a Monday school holiday. Service and entertainment were excellent as always on Royal Caribbean.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
MDR was excellent as always. Windjammer was good but I was disappointed there was no designated gluten free hot food bar although there was a gluten free dessert bar. They could at least mark the gluten free items on the labels.

Onboard Activities

Hairspray and Flight were both outstanding! All of the other shows were good as well.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had an extremely good wait staff in the MDR. Every meal was delivered on time and as ordered. Our room steward, Jeff, was one of the best we have ever had.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was spotless.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It is the last boardwalk balcony and overlooks the aqua theater. There is some noise from the theater which might be annoying if you were trying to watch TV which we never do on a cruise. I had no problem going to sleep one night while Hiro was going on outside.

Ship tip

Book your shows as soon as they open to get the times that you prefer.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Nassau is Nassau. Been there many times.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
St Thomas is a fun port with some good shopping. We did an excursion through Shore Excursions Group which was good. It mainly took us into town to shop and to Mountain Tops.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
St Kitts is a beautiful island! We spent several hours on the beach at the Marriott Resort through Resort For A Day. Had our own cabana. Extremely nice facilities.
