Another Transatlantic Crossing
We sailed for 16 days and had nothing but outstanding positive experience from the staff. Of all the cruises, I have never seen a More Captain so engaging and social walking around the ship morning, noon and night talking with all the guests. The entertainment was some of the best I have ever seen. I expected to have to endure the Royal Caribbean dancers for 16 nights and this was not the case. They flew in all types of acts that were top Las Vegas quality, some getting standing ovations.
We had the Grand Suite which was a first for us and I don't know how I will ever go back to a regular room. More space than we could use, dual sinks and overall just beautiful.
The service was just outstanding and as a Diamond member the 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm free cocktails are also a great plus. The itinerary was fantastic as we stopped in some very out of the way ports that you normally would not visit.
In closing, I still highly recommend RCCL but they do need to pay a little more attention to the evening dining experience. Less
Cabin review: GS1564 Grand Suite
The Grand Suite is very large and well appointed. The bathroom is also very large with dual sinks, full tube and shower and plenty of mirrors. The suite has a DVD player and video games that you can use. There is a nice bar area and plenty of closet space.Read All Grand Suite (GS) Reviews >>
