Although this is a smaller ship in the Royal line, the crew does a fantastic job of packing in the fun! All of the expected elements of a good Royal cruise are there; friendly bartenders, pool games, rock climbing wall, and an entertainment staff who never stops trying. For a four day cruise there are just enough activities to keep even very active cruisers happy. However, on a longer cruise savvy sailors might be left wanting for more shops or clubs on-board or some monotony/repetitiveness in the compass. The casino is adequate but I have seen more variety on the larger class of ship. However they also have a really good art gallery staff and the Centrum is beautiful. So I would highly recommend this cruise for a 4-ish day trip but any longer I would suggest finding a bigger ship!

Ship Tip

Hit up the bathroom behind the Schooner was almost never crowded and often empty.
