Easy, expedited boarding from Galveston at 12pm. We were guided to 9th deck for relaxation and drinks while embarkation was underway. Waiters were hustling trays of pre-made Mai Tais as soon as we sat down. The drinks were watery and only a select few drinks could be purchased without an extra sales tax until we left port. Did not purchase drink package. Thought the $900 fee (3 in our room) was outrageous. Everyone in cabin has to purchase or no one can. 20% gratuity is added to every single drink. Ridiculous. Our room steward was friendly and attentive for the whole cruise. Ship is indeed in need of updating. New paint and furnishings would be nice. I didn’t mind the smaller ship tho. Easy to navigate. Our room was comfortable, cool and quiet. The food in MDR was abysmal. Sit-down dinner service for hospital-type food. Very bland. We found the windjammer cafe to be our saving grace. Only 3 restaurants are onboard unless you pay extra for Chops Grille. We did not. The trivia games (usually in the Schooner lounge) were fun as were various singing/dancing events in the various bars and Atrium. The theater shows were enjoyable and the last-night entertainment was hilarious. Elevators were fairly fast. In-room refrigerators should be standard as well as a coffee pot. Guests should be able to access water/ice near your stateroom at their convenience. None of these were in our room. Pool areas were nicely attended. Not much activity for children at all. The pool games were all adult-oriented. Big screen in pool area could have been playing concerts/movies/cartoons...but remained on RC advertising all day. Costa Maya is a little niche carved into the beach, wholly intent on selling you trinkets. There is no beach access.Restaurants are very overpriced and the 20% automatic gratuity comes with everything. 6 hours was too long here. Cozumel stay wasn’t long enough. Found a taxi to take us to Paradise Beach. Lovely area with good food and drinks. 20% gratuity added even though our waiter didn’t quite earn that. The excursions were pricey and took 3 of the 6 hours of your shore time, so it was either beach...or tour Mexico. Can’t do both. Disembarkation was delayed by fog and problems with the gangway. I take it that fog is a common issue so don’t plan limo service for early times!!! On the flip side...there’s no place to store luggage at port if you book a later shuttle/limo. So we traipsed through Galveston with bags in tow for 4 hours. Read Less

First time with RC, picked cruise because it fit within traveling dates that I needed as well as I was advised RC was better than Carnival which I had previously cruised on. Totally wish I wouldve done better research or sought out honest reviews prior to booking. The ship is older, least bit of my concerns honestly. The activites or lack there of is what left me wanting more/wishing I wouldve found a different cruise within my desired travel dates. Staff all around are great, room attendants, food/service areas, even during activiies (competitions, bingo,shows) all very courteous and entertaining (if meant to be) However there werent many things on ship to do. Dining- Had issue with our dining (scheduled) table, each night. but it truly didnt bother us as much as it may of someone who is easily irritated by those things. The first night, perfect, 2nd and 3rd night we were table hopping due to seating arrangements being altered or maybe some guests were simply at the wrong table. Unfortunate b/c we did like our waitstaff the first night, we were looking forward to enjoyiing them for the duration of the trip. Outside of Main Dining. wheww youre stuck out.. although there are options at the buffet it becomes repetitive quick. There are no other eateries outside of the Solarium (pizza,salad,cold cuts) that are open around the clock. I did not pay for the special dining options, had I had an on board credit, maybe would of given it a shot. But didnt see the worth in spending for food when the dinner dining was quite nice and had a great menu to choose from. The all adults area (Solarium Pool) was full of kids running around everywhere. Top deck was closed majority of the cruise. I believe this was due to weather, so where I thought I could escape kids, b/c there isnt much to do on the top deck, I couldnt. I would travel with Royal Caribbean again, just wont be on this ship. Hopefully other, newer, ships have more to offer! Read Less

We chose to cruise with Royal based on a friend asking us to do a couples getaway. My husband had never cruised and I always chose carnival or Norwegian and never was disappointed. We added on the Key package for early boarding and disembarkation, and a beverage package. Everything went smoothly on boarding. However, our rooms we requested to be adjoining were not and were two floors apart. Then we noticed how old and dated/broken the fixtures were around the ship. Our drawers and closet doors did not function properly. We lost water on the first port day and ended up being moved since we had no water still the next day. After much back and forth with guest services they had to move us and upgraded our room but at night our room smelled like car exhaust. I spent most of my cruise uncomfortable and irritated. The port at Progresso Mexico should be closed. It’s unsafe to travel without a guide and people are way too pushy asking for money when going into the cities. I’ll never go back there as our guide did not seem to care if we felt safe or not. Most of the crew were excellent and professional. There were a few that should be fired for apathy or being too comfortable to be playful with guests. I participated in the Ladies Pamper Party and the ‘manager’ offered an extra $50 to anyone who could answer a question on skin care to which I was the only one that answered correctly. I NEVER received that discount on my spa services. When I went to talk to her the night before we left, she was not there. Of course. I loathe misleading practices! The main dining hall was the saving grace of the whole ship. The staff was impeccable and worked very hard to give an amazing experience. Other than the dining, the rest was not worth the money. We won’t travel with Royal Caribbean ever again. Nor will I encourage my friends or family to either. Read Less
