Surreal week in the Caribbean
Symphony of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review summaryIf you did not read the news you would not know that the cruise industry was going to come to a complete shutdown. The last day of our cruise while at Coco Cay, RCCL and other cruise lines announced the suspension of services. The stress related to the news on the virus had an impact on our cruise enjoyment. That being said I commend Royal Caribbean for a beautiful ship, excellent food and entertainment, and most of all for it’s hard working dedicated people. When the world recovers I would recommend this ship and it’s ports of call.
Food and Dining
This was one of our go to places for breakfast. Normally not crowded with excellent food and service. A hidden gem for breakfast.
Had lunch and dinner here a few times. Food and service was very good. Portions are large. Come hungry. The service was excellent .
Had lunch and dinner a few times. Tried soft shell crab for the first time. Not my favorite. The shrimp cocktail and seafood chowder were excellent. More of a casual restaurant located on deck 16. Easy to miss if you are looking for it. Service was excellent.
Never disappoints. Enjoyed dinner there on two nights. My wife and I enjoyed the steak perfectly cooked. Service was great.
Great place to get your specialty coffee. Lines were sometimes long but they moved quickly. Coffee drinks were very good. Good place to get your Irish coffee in the evening.
Broadwalk Dog House
Hot dogs and sausage were very tasty but could have been much hotter.
Not only do they provide all the mixed drinks for the restaurants in Central Park but provide excellent service at their small bar. This was our go to bar for much of our trip.
Jazz on 4
Perfect way to end the evening. Located on deck 4. A small intimate venue with unbelievable musicians. You don’t need to love jazz to enjoy this venue.
Probably best show we saw all week. Reserve early because the show gets cancelled often due to weather.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Don’t be afraid of the size of this ship. We never felt overwhelmed or too crowded at any venue on this ship. Very good design.
