We cruise 3-5 times every year: this was a perfect long weekend for us to get away from home and to allow my wife to be served meals rather than prepare them. We had no other activities scheduled, so Nassau was a great weekend sojourn. ... Read more

This was my first cruise on Royal Caribbean. I enjoyed and would do another one with this cruise line due to the level or service we received. I am not sure if our service was better due to us being in a Junior Suite. I loved our Junior ... Read more

I didn't choose the cruise as I wasn't paying for it but most certainly would have. This is my 2nd RC cruise and the longest as my first was only a 4 day. Embarkation lines were long as is typical I suppose, but overall everything went ... Read more
