Great cruise but weather was an issue.  Lots of clouds and overcast.  Had to skip Grand Cayman due to rough seas.  Ship was to be tendered so Captain felt the risk was too high.


The crew and staff were great.  I recommend Royal Caribbean and would travel with them again.  This was our 6th cruise. 


Tampa is not the best terminal to utilize.  Took customs almost two hours to clear the ship so we could depart.  Only three customs agents were on duty to cover two ships.  Lines were a bear.  If Tampa can not improve, then Royal Caribbean should stop going there.  It is a hassle there.

Cabin / Stateroom
We were upgraded to cabin 7522. A larger room with a balcony. Great surprise. Thank you Royal Caribbean.

Just enjoy yourself. The ship is an older one but great just the same. If you complain you will only ruin your cruise. Have fun and leave the complaining at home.
