This ship was a little older than some of the other ships but it was overall a nice looking ship. The embarkation went really smoothly and disembarkation went as well as could have been expected for a suite customer. This is an older ship so if you want all the bells and whistles you may not get them on this ship. I loved the shows they provided on the ship they had a little bit something for everyone. My stateroom attendant as well as the dining room staff in the Saphire dining hall were excellent. I ate breakfast in Giovanis restaurant and that was excellent also. I did not really care for the food in the Windjammer. I enjoy the ports and shore excursions most notably Toppers Rhum in St. Maarten. That place was awesome. Depending on where the ship traveled too would be my decision if I traveled on this ship again. Read Less

We chose this cruise for ship and Itinerary Our first on RCCL and Adventure was perfect not too big or small we never felt crowded in any venue plenty to do onboard. Port everglades embarking and debarking was excellent easiest ever so far. The food was great just not enough choices for dinner in MDR . windjammer was always crowded only ate there 3 times had breakfast in MDR good food and service lunches were mainly pizza or snacks from the Cafe. The ports were amazing never enough time to do everything we will probably take another cruise to get to all of them again. Labadee : Beautiful beach day and the roller coaster was short but worth it San Juan : Excellent history we visited 2 of the 3 forts did some shopping St.Martin : Took an Island tour(private not ship) still quite a bit of hurricane damage can be seen but beautiful place. Shopped in the port area St.Kitts : Took an island tour again lots of pictures taken just not enough time. Shopped in the port area. I would definitely cruise this itinerary again on Adventure or one of the larger ships Read Less

Cruised with my wife and another couple choosing this cruise because of the 8 nights and ports of call. We are all Diamond members and have cruised exclusively on RCCL. Flew into Ft. Lauderdale the day before and enjoyed our stay at the Embassy Suites. Took a Taxi to the cruise port arriving at 10:45 am and was on the ship by 11:30 am eating lunch. Embarkation was smooth and all the RCCL workers were friendly and helpful. One change is that you do not get your sea pass card until you get to your room at 1 pm. One complaint is the muster drill. I know it is mandatory but our station was directly facing the sun and we were packed in like sardines for 20 minutes in 85 degree heat sweating profusely. Some people could not take it and walked inside to get some air, made me half sick to my stomach. We had a inside cabin on the 7th floor with a window facing the promenade and our room attendant Joel was excellent, keeping our room clean, stocked with ice and answering any questions we had. We ate in the MDR 6 nights and found the food very good. Some nights better than others but overall the selection was diverse. We ate in Chops and had a excellent meal and in Giovannis Table and found the food and service just OK. The Windjammer was very good for Breakfast and Lunch, especially enjoyed the fresh fruit everyday. Enjoyed the Ice Show and comedians and the RCCL singers and dancers were above average compared to some shows I have seen on other ships. One complaint is the Cruise Director was as plastic as you could get. Compared to some of the excellent Cruise Directors we have sailed with in the past he was below average. The Love and Marriage Game could have been better but he was just going through the motions. All 4 felt this way about him whenever he emceed an event. We have a motto that sometimes things are not going to be perfect so we go with the flow and don't let the small things bother you and ruin your vacation. The RCCL employees try hard to please everyone and keep the ship clean as possible in the time they have. I am an early riser and found employees cleaning at 6 am with a smile on there face and a Good Morning when I went for coffee. The pool area on Cruise Days were packed but we were able to find a place in the shade and if we wanted sun we sat on the edge of the pool enjoying the music and atmosphere. Because of the time of the year there were very few children on board. Labadee is a fun day, just a beautiful place to relax. Did not do excursions because we had been to the ports of call San Juan, St. Kitts and St Martin several times but still enjoy shopping at St. Martin and St. Kitts. The Diamond Club is a nice perk but with over 630 members on board RCCL needs to find an alternative to how people were served. The concierge was rude and not helpful and did not make RCCL any friends when asked about the situation. Especially when the serving area is packed in a room that seats an estimated 40 to 50 people. We are planning on cruising again on RCCL with an Hawaii Cruise on the Ovation of the Seas in the fall of 2019. Read Less

This was my 12th RC Cruise.. I am very loyal to Royal and I am currently suffering from cruise depression. For the most part, I had a great time. Food and Entertainment were off the charts AMAZING for me. We loved the game shows, contests, etc, and all of the cruise staff was very friendly. They were super personable and got to know us on a first name basis (especially if you participate, they will be buddies with you). I also was highly impressed with the food this time. In the past, the food was just average for me, but this time, I think they really stepped up their game in both the Windjammer and Main Dining Room. They had a really good variety each day. I did have some issues getting on board the ship. Apparently, they either had some faulty cards that would not scan OR their printer was not working correctly (I never really got a clear answer) and I had to stand to the side right after we boarded the ship so they could print me a new card. I was there for around 15 minutes, while others scanned in and got on the ship, I just stood there waiting. My boyfriend's card, who was literally right in front of me, worked just fine. They never came, so the lady told me to go to guest services to get a new one. At guest services, they were concerned that I must have gotten onto the ship somehow without going through security (?) and didn't believe my story.. Finally, the girl that was supposed to come bring me a new card came back and said it should be fine.. but low and behold, it didn't work at the Windjammer bar. I had to go back down AGAIN and get a new one printed. That was kind of a bummer on the first day, but no more issues after that. Other thoughts.. The bar service was horrible. This cruise had maybe 4 dozen kids, so the bar staff probably was not prepared for that many adults at all times at every venue. There were some times we had to wait 20 minutes for a drink (Imperial Lounge, Blue Moon, and Boleros were the worst.) Main dining room bar service was horrible also. We would be finished with appetizers before our drinks ever came. Cabin cleanliness.. Well, our cabin was refurbished with fresh carpet and a new chair, but it wasn't very clean. The bathroom had dark hairs in the shower, and there was a wine cork under the toilet area that was there when we arrived and sat there for 3 days before we threw it away.. I also NEVER met my stateroom attendant. lol. They just never introduced themselves and I never saw him cleaning - although my boyfriend did meet him, I thought it was strange he never introduced himself to me. PLEASE GO TO ALL OF THE GAMESHOWS. They are hilarious and definitely worth attending each night. We did not do any excursions this time. In St. Thomas, we went to the Mountain Top which was absolutely incredible. I would love to go again. Also, I noticed moreso on this cruise that the crew was going out of their way to sell on the first few days. Drink packages, specialty dining, etc, and they would come up to you while you were just sitting down enjoying a drink or walking past like mall kiosks do. That was pretty annoying, but it definitely calmed down after the first day. All in all, we LOVED this ship and plan to go back in 6 months for the New England/ Canada itinerary!! Read Less

We sailed on the Eastern itinerary with stops in St. Maarten, St Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados. We arrived the day before and stayed at the Courtyard Isla Verde. It's a nice property that allowed us to have some beach time before we boarded. As checkout was 11:00 we took a taxi then to the terminal. At the terminal, we checked our bags quickly and then had to wait until after 12:00 for the doors to open to check in. It was chaotic at this time, and if I had to do it again I would arrive a few hours later once things settled down. Once in check in was quick and we were on board within 15 minutes of entering the building. For the stops: - St Maarten - took a private tour with a day pass at the Sonesta Maho beach. Fantastic! - St. Kitts - booked Thenford Grey's Grand tour. Well worth it. - Antigua - Had the ships snorkel and kayak booked, but this was canceled due to weather. Walked around port, but not much to see. This did make a good down day after the prior two - St Lucia - Took the ships zip lining by the Pitons. Very nice boat ride back and forth. The zip lining was ok. - Barbados - Hired Carson Moore for a tour of the island. Highly recommended. The service in the main dining and the cabin was great with the staff going out of their way to ensure we had what we needed. The food in the main dining was mostly good and the Windjammer was what you would expect for this style of buffet. The ship as a whole is showing some wear and will definitely benefit from it's October scheduled dry dock. All in all, we had a good time and are looking forward to seeing the Adventure next year after the refresh. Read Less

We did a back to back cruise and I thoroughly enjoyed my honeymoon cruise aboard this ship. Royal Caribbean has always been my cruise company of choice. It was great to see my crown and anchor points starting to add up! The crown and anchor scheme offers excellent bonus treats, discounts and members only events. I highly recommend it to everyone. We received wonderful service on this ship, which makes a big difference to your cruise. They had planned a honeymoon brunch for us, which was a lovely surprise. Unfortunately I felt sea sick so couldn't attend. The few other newlyweds who attended said it was good fun. Thankfully sea sickness tabs are available free of charge and they generally work well with me. Our destinations were amazing, as were the planned excursions. Hati by far being my favourite port. They serve a lovely brunch out on the island/port. Even if you haven't booked any excursions in Haiti you can get off and enjoy the sand, sea, music and sun. The zip line going across the beach looks like good fun. Dining was excellent. Just like I previously remember it. The fine dining restaurants are very romantic. We got some great photos taken by the professional photographers on board too. Read Less

Stateroom- I loved my room, very clean and for being a ship it was very comftarble. Our stateroom assistant name Froilan gave us an excelent service!!!!!! There was not a day that he dint say hello , if he couldnt clean our room he would come in panic attack!!!! He did a great job Dinning- i have too recognized Ibrahim and Leon they were our dinning assistants there service was like treating a family, i could say the best experience i ever had and royal caribbean!!!! And the foooood was wonderful, lobster, lamb, shrimp, chicken....mmmm just all you can eat!!!! Public rooms- public bathroomss were more clean that the Rits Carton Hotel main bathroom Pool- i love the pool area, clean and loved the jacuzzi area there were enough for everyone, not crowded Entertainment-well i think that for this cruise the entertainment could do better.....the disco open at midnight , at the bars there were the same singers every night.....casino there were no lucky machines just eat your cash, pool was too cold to get in at night, basketball or sport at night you cant play because of the wind, game room (arcade) to expensive for any machine you have to pay 1.50 up....the shows :/ just liked 1 of 3 Drinks- for a cruise i think the prices of the drinks were good!!! A big frozen margarita for $7.50 mean while in on the border i pay $9.99 for same size...so pricing was good!!! They have drink package but alchol is not included Excursions- i did my excursions with royal caribbean we had a great time we snorkel, swim with turtles, we went to the beach, do shopping etc...but is reallllly expensive but more safe.....is like $40 -$70-$100 per person... It depends in the tip of excursion boarding- getting out of the cruise was a dissaster!!!!!!!!! Completly disorganized, i think that royal caribbean should orinted more there cruise members so they could oriented correctly us.....wow i think from 1 to 10 i give a 0 on this......i waited from 8am to 11a to get out of the ship....this was horrible so be preperad.....to get in the ship is more relaxing and very quick. My. English is not the best but hope this works :)   Read Less
