This is a smaller older ship in royal fleet.  We had a Jr suite   Great views. Very quiet 8576.   Tons of storage space.  Staff exceptional and very attentive.  Being a small ship entertainment is limited but the shows and especially the orchestra was excellent.  Weather was very bad for a Carribean cruise in March very cloudy and rainy most days but the crew did their part making it enjoyable.  

Restaurants. - main dining room -  as many have posted the main dining room food has suffered.  Very bland.   Service however was very good.  So we purchased a 4 specialty dining package and a chefs table.  Chops. Excellent - get the filet much better than the NY strip.   Izumi - wow. Very good.  Giavonnis  - also very good.  Chefs Table - that is as much a show as the food and wine and was excellent.  The chef was shy but the host/server was outstanding.  Windjammer - breakfast good eggs to order.  Lunch. - not so good. Steamed burger really? Glad they had a park cafe for roast beef - excellent as usual.  Shore excursions - Roatan was a bust major  rain and the excursion people,obviously not accustomed to rain -ship gave us a 25% credit. I felt that was appropriate  Belize cave tubing. Stay with dark night was excellent    The other stop I went independent  Costa maya fun with a private resort. Cozumel been there so much just shopped.  Overall a fun trip and a good smaller ship
