This was our first time sailing with Royal Caribean. We had heard wonderful things and were looking forward to somewhat of a luxurious vacation. Overall, the experience was a good one. The ship looked as though it needed to be updated, although it was immaculately kept. Our stateroom was small and we did not feel met the cost we spent for it. When on board, the entertainment was practically the same every day (Bingo) and had little to do for a young couple. The shows that included dancers was wonderful, but the other shows we went to felt as though they were the B team. We also were disapointed with the lack of information given for those who chose to explore the ports on their own. For example, at our stop in Gdansk, Poland, they failed to let us know that the "shuttle" that you paid $10 per person to take you into town only took you about 7 minutes into another town - Gdynia, Poland. You were then on your own to find transportation to Gdansk. Thankfully we are experienced travelers and were able to find our way there after a visit to the tourist information office. Others with little to no experience may not have even known they weren't in Gdansk.
