We chose this cruise because we wanted to cruise from Port Canaveral and the RCCL ship did not have balcony rooms only suites. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smooth since we purchased the FTTF package which is well worth the ... Read more

This cruise for us and several passengers we spoke with was below average. Boarding was reasonably smooth but disembarkation was chaotic and very uncomfortable for older customers and families with small children. Having cruised with ... Read more

Carnival had a cheaper cruise to the ports than Royal Caribbean this time. I was very disappointed in the food. We spent most of our time eating at Guy's Burger Joint. We had a balcony and the windows and doors was so filthy that it was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was so close to home and we didn't have to fly to get to it and to give a different cruise line a try. I wasn't disappointed but I wasn't very impressed either. Boarding the ship wasn't too bad but when on ... Read more

This was indeed a fun trip and the crew was amazing. Our grandkids had a great time. On the other hand, for the number of people, and especially kids, on board, the pools were way inadequate. They were far too small. The pools and sun ... Read more
