If your looking for all the things that come with the bigger ships this is not for you. The ship is small and doesn’t come with all those amenities. One good thing is it never seemed crowded at all and we had 2200 people on board.

We are Diamond Plus cruisers and typically have access to the Concierge Lounge. On this ship we were not provided access to the Concierge Lounge and instead used the tiniest Diamond Lounge we’ve seen. Service was poor and tables were filled with dirty plates and glasses that were often not removed btw guests. This overall was a disappointment to loyal RC cruisers.

Ship has undergone upgrade, but in 2012 Cigar Lounge was great meeting place

Not a big as Ovation of the Seas so the advantage is that it is less hectic, if that is what you want.

If you are traveling with someone with special needs of a wheel chair I wouldnt do it. Not the ship for you. They only have 2 excursions that are accessible. The one in Antigua was terrible. They didnt know how to operate the lift as it was in Japanese, and the wheel chair was in the back of the van and no microphone for driver. Plus excursion was pretty lame. Getting around the ship over the thresholds were very difficult and annoying.

We watched the belly flop competition from the Viking lounge. Great view and seating.

Ship did not sail till 8pm. Drop off luggage at the port at 11am and explore Old Dan Juan. Use Uber, much less than a cab.
