Very nice ship with mediocre entertainment and TINY rooms
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Second, rooms on this vessle are tiny. Having cruised on some of the smaller Royal Carrebean ships I was very surprised at the size of our top class of Balcony room. Unless you buy a suite, don't expect to fit anymore than two people into a stateroom comfortably. And even with two people, it's tough to get around. They do keep the rooms clean though, kudos to housekeeping!
Third, the More entertainment team downright sucks. I could not understand a word of English spoken by the Cruise director - Philipe throughout the week. I won't even mention the rest of the Italian/Spanish team. Soda and Alcohol are extremely expensive, but not unlike any other cruise I've been on. I would rate food quality as 2 out of 5. Not a day went by without upset stomach in my case. Any type of meat was just horrible to taste. Stick to Fish and seafood.
Best thing about this cruise was "Camp Carnival". We had two kids with us and they took care of both for many hours each day. Kids area is full of toys and activities, supervised by a very friendly staff. Huge thanks for that. Less
Cabin review: 8C Balcony
Tiny room was barely enough for two people, so the four of us kept bumping into each other. Small balcony, tiny bathroom, but good closets. Rooms are clean and smell and insects free though.Read All Balcony (8C) Reviews >>
