Embarkation was easy as we are Crown & Anchor and we got right onto the ship. The ship itself is very pretty and seems to be kept in good shape. Our cabin was a decent size but we found the mattress very hard. They are new, and they ... Read more

the timing was good for the window of time that we had. Thought that a bigger ship would have more for our 20 something daughters to do. Embarkation was quick but then everyone pretty much forced into buffet with all carry-on luggage ... Read more

This was my first on Royal Caribbean. The ship is beautiful and the crew was wonderful. On the flip side the food was well below average. There was a large amount of solicitation. You would be bothered at dinner or while enjoying a drink. ... Read more

We chose this cruise both because it lined up perfectly with our school districts April vacation, and because we were able to sail with a group rate. Upon entering our stateroom we were VERY impressed. The panoramic staterooms may not have ... Read more

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
