Review summary

Overall, this was a fun ship. The family had a blast, and we will be back. I never felt like I was on a ship with 6000 people. Royal Caribbean did an amazing job with the ship layout, and various options.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We purchased the 3 night dining package. We ate at Chops, Jamie’s Italian and Hooked. All dining was great. I just wasn’t too fond of the Lobster Roll at Hooked; however, the Maine lobster was fantastic. I just prefer my Lobster Roll Warm. MDR was good. Service by Renman and Bogdon fantastic. Windjammer not for me, I just dined there one day. Salad station was good, but I didn’t care for some of the offerings. Kids loved it.

This was by far, my favorite meal. Our server Marleus was awesome! Entire family agreed this was their favorite dining venue.

Onboard Activities

Tons to do, but I didn’t take advantage of all the activities. I don’t think you could ever get bored.

We took the “island girl” charter over to St. John’s. Beautiful island, fun crew- zero complaints. Absolutely gorgeous.

Miami, Florida

No excursions. We just flew in, and are flying out. I’ve been to Miami many times. Great place.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

We did a beach break. The driver was fun, but once we got to the island, the hustle was on. I get it, this is how they make money, but I was just there to read a book, and relax. I don’t mind being approached, but repeatedly saying “no, thank you” was mildly irritating.

Quickest disembarkation ever! No issues at all.
