Review summary

My first cruise over 7 days. Love that you get to know the people you meet better, I made many forever friends. The majority of the passengers were puertorican, and the joy of the culture was felt all over. Loved it. A very happy experience. I wish there was more time to spend in the ports of call. Bonaire which had the least to see was the longest. Beautiful crew all over, great food, Again, thanks, to Terrence Barnum and Mahendra. I will not forget you guys!!!!

Some of them were excellent, others ok. The cruise director was a great entertainer, the kid directing the chorus was wonderful. The calipso band by the pool was very good, sad that I didn't get to listen to them more but there was too much to do. The latin trio was also very good-Centrum. Elton John , a lot of fun. The show with the crew in the Mascarade Theater, was great, I really enjoyed that. Overall, great entertainment. My main complaint was that the activities lasted 45 min. too short. Most of us would have wanted many of these to last longer.

Service and Staff

To me, it's always ben the best part of a Royal Caribbean Cruise. Not one issue in 15 days. They were friendly and helpful at all times. A+. My room stewart, Terrence Barnum, always helpful and polite. He bacame family to me. I wish him all the best. I was also impressed by Mahendra, in the dinning room. A young man, who was also putting forward his best effort and you could just persive that he was always trying to learn more. He will go far, no doubt about it. I wish him much success.

The street vendors were too aggressive here. Nothing to do with the cruise ship.
