Fall Leaves

Overall we enjoyed this cruise and would recommend the cruise to others, The ship is not a large mega ship but is very easy to get around and did not seem overly crowded. We were pleased to see some excellent fall colors. Other than issues with the MY TIME DINING procedures, we found the cruise to be very good and enjoyed the number of ports we visited. The ship had an older clientele, and when in port there are few onboard activities. The food was very good in both the main dining room and the buffet. We did not go to any of the "Specialty Restaurants" but did speak with several individuals who did and advised they enjoyed the food and the more personal service. The dining room waiters and service personnel, all try to promote the specialty restaurants, during the cruise.

We have cruised three times with Royal Caribbean and have always been pleased until this cruise. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't as nice as we expected it to be.

Older small ship with great staff

The service on the ship was top notch. Clean ship. However, would have enjoyed this cruise more if there were more excursions (many were booked up first day) for active people and had the food in free dining areas been better. We are in our fifties, and we were one of the youngest people on board, so it seems excursions and activities are geared towards a less active, quiet crowd. The 3 premium restaurants are good, especially Chops and Giovanni's. Internet service offered by the ship (for a fee) isn't too fast. Cell service was good at all the ports.

Great cruise! Wish I could have known when the fall leaves were turning color, but that's not the fault of the cruise. The staff is among the very best I've ever seen on a cruise ship!!! Very good food, terrific entertainment!!

Using the Express (carrying your own bags) disembarkation really saved time leaving the ship early in the morning.

We carried our own bags off. So much faster during disembarkation.
