This was our 11th cruise on Royal Caribbean and we were not disappointed at all.

We pre-cruised for a wedding on CoCo Beach then boarded at 11:00 on Sunday and were on the ship within 15 minutes.

The layout of the ship flowed very well. The activities kept our teenagers busy all week and the adults were also very satisfied with the variety of things to do.

The food in the dining room was delicious and the Windjammer for breakfast and lunch pleased everyone with the choices.

The shows were great and the music in the lounges/bars.

The only complaint was the disorganization at the port with getting the luggage. With all the people getting off it was extremely conjested and the valets going through the crowds with their metal carts running in to people and their luggage was terrible.

We definitely will travel on Royal Caribbean again.

Cabin review: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

This cabin is on the back of the ship and has a huge balcony which was a wonderful surprise. The cabin with the king bed was very comfortable and the room itself seemed very spacious. The bathrooms were what we are used to and dealt with it fine. Our cabin steward Roberto was excellent and couldn't do enough for us.

Port and Shore Excursions


Some of us did the Glass Bottom Boat and had a very good time. The fact that they brought some things from the water on board for us to see was really interesting.

Some of us did the snorkeling and it was a lot of fun as well.

Did the shopping - some prices were higher than expected and they did not work with you very well with pricing as we used to get at this port.
