Too much hype. Music piped everywhere much too loud. No place to relax!! The experience was about Royal Caribbean wanting to make more money - constantly trying to sell us more things. Their idea of nice experience is to hype ... Read more

There were 3 adult women in one stateroom. The drop-down bed was a little shakey, as well as the ladder, and woke the other 2 travelers when she climbed down. We would have preferred a pull out love seat instead of a drop down. The ... Read more

We chose to take this cruise for 7 members of our family because of its close proximity to our home. This allowed us to drive rather than fly. We found the ship to be perfect for family with children ages 3 (potty trained)-high school. ... Read more
