Review summary

Great cruise! I feel like RC should have other activities in Coco Cay for people who don't swim or do water activities. Cater to everyone!

Great variety of food!

Suite Lounge

5 out of 5

I 💘 this lounge it was so laid back. Very relaxing. Service was great also. They need to invest in a blender so you can order frozen drinks. I'm a suite guest and I shouldnt have to go to another location to get the drink I like and come back to sit!

Sorrentos

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
All the activities were fun except bingo that was a total rip off. $50-$70 for just 3 games of bingo.

Vitality at Sea Spa

3 out of 5

I was going to get a massage but after being in there trying to decide what I wanted 3 different ladies came in complaining because there message did not go well. Two of the ladies were badly bruised. One looked like she had been in a fight and needless to say she looked as if she was on the looooosing end. So that quickly changed my mind!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
All the shows were amazing. The DJ played a variety of music which was good.

Royal Theatre

5 out of 5

Venue is very nice. I played bingo in this theatre wich I hate to say was a total rip off. $40-$70 for 3 games of bingo is aweful! Plus you have to pay$3 for a mini dabo and $10 for a T-Shirt. If I pay $70 bucks I should get a free dabo and t-shirt.

Retail Shop

5 out of 5

All the shops were very clean and well presentable. The variety was plentiful and prices were great especially the $10 sales.

Promenade Shops

5 out of 5

A good variety of quality goods.

On Air Club

5 out of 5

This was one of my go to spots! The bartender made my pina coladas to perfection. The music was great and the activities were fun.

Casino Royale

5 out of 5

Excellent! I spent alot of time in the casino I also won a nice chunk of change! Can't wait to book my next cruise thru casino royale.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
I personally didn't have any kids with me but by the comments of others there were great activities for kids of all ages.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I give 5 stars overall because there were a couple of bartenders with bad attitudes. At the pool bar on guy had a nerve to raise his voice at me because he made my drink wrong. I politely smiled and still said thank you. So one or two people is not going to change my 5 star.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean at all times. The decor is amazing great artwork within the floor paintings.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
My suite was amazing! It was exactly like the video.

Ship tip

Be prepaired for an amazing adventure.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
I came a day early and stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel. It is within walking distance of Bayside. The shops and selection of restaurants was great we also did a yacht tour of millionaires row.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
I had alot of fun here. The shop prices were very reasonable and the people were very friendly and willing to negotiate prices.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Beautiful! A little pricer than St. Kitts. also we went on a tour and the guy lied about having air conditioning in his van. He also lied about a couple things on the tour which I called him out on because I did a tour last year as well. But hey for $20 bucks what can you expect.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

3 out of 5
I personally did not like Coco Cay because I'm not a waterpark person. I feel like Royal Caribbean did not take that into consideration because there is nothing else there to do besides water activities. So we ended up being hot and bored.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We met at the coastal kitchen and was escorted down. It only took about a good 5min. if that to get from the coastal kitchen to our luggage and exit the building. Very well organized!
