Embarkation and disembarkation was easy. Used a hotel with stay and go for the shuttle. The main stage entertainment was probably the best of any cruise I have been on. The ship's orchestra and dancers were professional. The food and ... Read more

Another fun cruise vacation served by Royal Caribbean. This cruise met our expectation much more than did the previous year on Independence of The Seas. The difference in the attitude of the crew, from IOTS and FOTS, was night and day. The ... Read more
