This was the first cruise for us on this Ship. We favor RCI over both Carnival and NCL. We chose this ship and itinerary because it stopped in Belize during a week that we could both get off of work. We attended almost every show. The Ice skating show was absolutely fantastic - I never thought that I would enjoy an ice show that much.
We ate our dinners in the Betrocelli dining room on "my time" and enjoyed them very much. We often lunched at the buffet on deck 11 and snacked often at the coffee shop on 5.
We booked 2 excursions through the cruise line on the days that our ship tendered us to shore and 2 excursions by ourselves on the days that the shipped docked port side. We had an issue with one of our RCI excursions and received a 25% credit within 24 hours.
My wife had to use the medical services which were professional and courteous. I decided not to pay an extra 30 dollars to get one small package of pepto bismal because the nurse was not in the office one morning.
