Review summary

We booked out cruise at peak hurricane season and sure enough...Dorian tried really hard to kill our buzz but Royal Caribbean really came through. Our cruise was shortened by a day, our ship tour was cancelled and no stop at Coco Cay but all was refunded plus future cruise credit. Was proud of Royal Caribbean for going to Freeport and providing food for hurricane victims. (I think I heard over 20,000 meals) Were def Loyal to Royal!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Super easy! We had our sea pass card on our phones and passcard. We went through the lines quickly without stopping. I was afraid that with so many passengers there would be a long wait but it was quick and painless.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The main dining room is really grand and very efficient. Great service. The Windjammer was our breakfast place. We were there each morning early around 6:30 and there were very few people there at that time. The food was beautifully laid out. Don't miss Wonderland. What an experience that was. It was our only specialty dining experience and was truly memorable

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Didn't do anything other than walk around and lay out by the pool. Plenty of loungers. Great poolside cocktail service. Fun water slides.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The aquashow (Hiro) was amazing. Loved Hairspray! The ice show "1977" was a favorite for me.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our cruise (due to Hurricane Dorian) was shortened to a 3 day cruise and it seemed that the personnel were really going overboard to make everyone happy.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very nice.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great room. Really comfortable bed. Can't lose with a balcony view.

Ship tip

Prebook everything you want to do. Purchase the Key. We walked past the lines and got great seats.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas Did not visit port

We took the Blue Lagoon excursion instead. Recommend that highly

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas Did not visit port

Sadly due to the hurricane we weren't able to visit. Next time!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
The Key gives you priority disembarkation so we were out the door and into a cab without stopping.
