Departure on Sunday, Jan 22, 2012. Heavy fog over Galveston caused a huge mess in boarding process. Typically, able to board around 11:30 AM, but had to stand outside, in line for several hours and finally on board at 5:45 PM. If you think there will be fog that morning, stay in touch with Royal Caribbean or your travel agent so you're not on standing at the terminal for hours.
My wife, 4 year old daughter, and I had my in-laws (both 65 years old) join us for their first time cruise. The five of us were very comfortable in our Royal Family Suite. Strongly encourage to use the concierge lounge and service. Luca Iorio was extremely resourceful and informative. Mervin Tash, our stateroom attendant was our daughter's favorite. He would each night arrange her stuff toys throughout the room as if a "Toy Story Movie" had taken place. Dining was fabulous. We were treated like royalty by Lucian Maftei, our waiter, and by Jigger Mandig, the assistant waiter. These two gentlemen made our dinning experience a memorable vacation.
Wonderful cruise, fun port of call and excursions, delicious food, safe and fun for all.
