the timing was good for the window of time that we had. Thought that a bigger ship would have more for our 20 something daughters to do. Embarkation was quick but then everyone pretty much forced into buffet with all carry-on luggage ... Read more

This was our first cruise with the whole family, so we wanted it to be short and not too expensive. Several members of the family live in Orlando, so Port Canaveral was the obvious choice. Boarding was a breeze. Barely took 20 minutes. ... Read more

This was my first on Royal Caribbean. The ship is beautiful and the crew was wonderful. On the flip side the food was well below average. There was a large amount of solicitation. You would be bothered at dinner or while enjoying a drink. ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation was easy. Used a hotel with stay and go for the shuttle. The main stage entertainment was probably the best of any cruise I have been on. The ship's orchestra and dancers were professional. The food and ... Read more
