Review summary

This was my 5th cruise, 2and with Royal (did Oasis last time) but it was most of my family's first and they are now ready to go on another. I've already booked to go on Odyssey next February and Anthem in Europe next August. It's so addictive plus I usually travel with just myself and daughter so I like that she adores kid's club and I dont have to feel bad leaving her when I want a moment to myself. Royal knows how to keep it classy and keeps everything so clean, especially with all that's going one w the coronavirus right now. Just keep an eye on your account though....a few family members had incorrect charges but guest services corrected the issue right away.

Not overly impressed with the MDR but Hooked, Chops Grill, 150 Central Park and Wonderland were all amazing! You have to try Wonderland!

My 7 year old daughter and 10 year old nephew had so much fun here. Hesitant at first but then did not want to leave! The staff here are so amazing and the kids adore them!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Just enough room especially considering we were too busy to ever be in the room other than to sleep. Iputu was on the ball with keeping the room super tidy.

Ship tip

Just go with an open mind and get ready to have a blast! Relax in the Solarium if you want quiet down time. Try the specialty restaurants!

Third time in Cozumel....went over to Playa Del Carmen to get to Xcaret for a 2nd time. I must do! One of my fave places to visit!

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Rented a cabana at the private beach and at Thrill Island for the teens and young adults. They never left Thrill Island except to eat. They had a great time but said at noon the lines were substantially longer and ended up waiting for the rest of the day. Cabana at Coco private beach club really was A PERFECT DAY!

Easy peasy! Called an Uber and Lyft for all 9 of us and we had no issues.
