Great cruise, watch out for their Cruise Care insurance...
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The royal babies and tots program is excellent. Our 2 year old loved the playroom and the toy lending program. He also enjoyed the carousel, face painting, and the balloon animals. They have a music show as well that is lots of fun. They also have a baby pool if your little one isn't toilet trained. We didn't leave him with the babysitting service, so I can't comment on that.
I only have two complaints. The biggest is about Royal Caribbean's "cruise care" insurance. We were originally supposed to cruise in February 2014, but were unable to make our flight due to a nasty winter storm. We thought, it will be okay, we bought the insurance. Come to find out, when you read the fine print it only covers 75% of what you paid in More future cruise credits. Full coverage is only provided for 2 or 3 very specific circumstances (ie, death or illness in your immediate family). If you want real travel insurance use CSA, it's cheaper and actually covers your whole vacation even in the event of bad weather.
Besides that there aren't enough pools on the ship. They are over crowded and dirty - hair, sunscreen, etc obviously floating in the water - on at sea days...yucky!
Overall a great cruise, just be sure to do your homework. Less
