Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 7584
Traveled As: Couple

We were not impressed with the food on the cruise.   There was not the variety as on other cruise lines.  There was only one little café to go to if you wanted a snack at night.  It had very little to pick from, and the items were not that fresh.  They served crumbs for chips.  I had been told when on the ship that there were no late night buffets because it was a waste.  I can understand that, but there should be something edible for people who want something to eat late at night.  The entertainment was very good most of the time.  We thought there was not enough activities like on other cruise lines.  The Cruise Director was very good, and we thoroughly enjoyed the times he was there.  Our room was clean but never vacuumed.  We had threads on the carpet and sparkles the entire week.  We went to the "shopping" seminar, and all they did was plug Diamonds International.  When we were in Cozumel, we were told to take a taxi to the "Forum" to shop for the best shopping; and all it was was Diamonds International and its associates.  We were so disappointed.  I do not think we will be going on Royal Caribbean in the near future.

We liked most of the entertainment, but there were a couple nights that should be changed.

Children's Programs

Service and Staff

Our servers Joseph from the Phillipines and his assistant, Daniel, were fabulous; and we made sure they were recognized by the Hotel Director, Sanjay, and with a bigger tip.

It was clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

The room was good (that is not a picture of it in any way). It was clean except for no vacuuming the entire week. We had the same pieces of thread on the floor and sparkles all over from previous guests.

Ship Tip

To me and my husband and friends, we were more happy eating at the buffet than in the restaurant. There was more of a variety in the food and desserts.

Tampa, Florida Did not visit port

We live h.ere

The shopping is okay, but not great.

Belize City, Belize Did not visit port

Not too much to do here if you do not go to beach, etc.

It was the best stop to be in the little shopping area.

The people do not leave you alone, but there is a lot of shopping if that is what you like to do.
