It was the BEST cruise we have had in our 10 cruises..ports-of-call were great..Tortola, St. Martin, Martinique, Antigua and St. Croix...met great people at our dinner table and will now be friends for life...
Food was pretty good, but lacked seasoning, so I would rate it as GOOD..

It was the WORST cruise we have had also... booked our room on Deck 2 (which I requested) and it was right above the door-dock gangplank that people got off at the ports, and the crew started banging things around anywhere between 4:22am-6:30am..the banging sometimes sounded like a jackhammer for 30 minutes, so we could not go back to sleep those 6 mornings....we are from the West Coast, so that made it 1:22am-3:30am our time,...SO, we had little sleep for 6 out of the 10 nights we were on the cruise!!...Sleep Deprivation is not the way we wanted to spend our 25 year Anniversary and it was miserable!!

The windows on the upper deck NEVER got washed, so by Day 9, the ocean looked like it was blurry...this was bad service on Royal Caribbeans' behalf
