Great overall experience!

Sail Date: April 2017
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We have been on 4 Fall transatlantic crossings but this was our first time for the Spring crossing. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. The ship was in good shape with the exception of the cabin bathroom showing some wear and tear. The kids pool was under construction the entire cruise. Not a problem for us but there were a few children on board which were supervised by Royal Caribbean staff at the adult pool.

We chose MTD at 7:30 each night and the first night received a window table for 4 so we requested the same table for the rest of the cruise. This time worked well for most show times and the main reason for choosing this time was because of the time changes. During the crossing, the captain chose to turn the clocks back 1 hour at noon for 2 days skip a day and repeat sequence until all 6 hours were made up.

Food was good in MTD and Windjammer and our service everywhere on the ship was amazing.

There dining attire recommendations were More themed except the 3 formal nights and 2 casual which would have been more fun and easier to pack had we known prior to boarding.

We found that the entertainment was lacking. Shows we have seen before or the same old thing. Live entertainers were not very good in our opinion.

We chose to DIY at the ports. Less

Cabin review: PR8859 Promenade Stateroom

plenty of storage space and room for us when in the room. Bathroom showed it's age with stains and wear and tear.
