This is our third time on this ship. We live in the surrounding Houston area, so it is a fast, inexpensive port to get to. This 7 day cruise went to Roatan, Honduras;Belize City, Belize and Cozumel, Mexico. We first dopped off luggage at porter station by ship, then parked at parking lot B. The parking lot will shuttle you to the ship terminal. Traffic was terrible with everyone trying to get on or get off the port area. Allow at least one hour to manuver around all the people and traffic. Embarkation/checking in was very smooth and fast, maybe 20 minutes.This was around noon. We ate at the Windjammer buffet and wait for room to be ready. Room was ready around 1:30. The bars opened at 10:00 AM, but can only serve local beverages due to Texas Laws, while at port. Ship needs to be updated or renovated, it is starting to show at lot of wear and tear. The Main Dining Room and Promenade Decks were very nicely appointed and luxurious. The cabin needs major renovations and updating. Room 8366 was very spacious. This ship does a great job with drawers, shelves, mirrors and closet space. The shower was very narrow as typical of most ships. Bring your own body lotion and liquid body soap, since these are not provided. Entertainment was great. Loved Phil Anderson, the Piano Guy, at the Schooner Bar and the latin guitarist, Manoelito at Boleros. We went to the main show each night at the Platnium Theatre. I thought they did a great job. Each night was different and very entertaining. We didn't care for the food at the Windjammer. It was just too bland and commercial. The main dining room's food wasn't much better. The service was top notch, but the food really needs to be upscaled, taste modified, or more diverse with healthy alternatives. Cozumel was a great port, the other two stops aren't really that great. Debarkation was terrible. We were suppose to start at ten, but they were running one hour late. The crowds were getting mad from waiting. Very long wait at customs. Very disorganized. Take shuttle and luggage back to car. What a long morning. (3 hours!) My spouse and I had a great time despite the food. Read Less

This is our second cruise with Royal Caribbean. Both times our family of 14 adults went on the cruise. I was concerned because when I booked this cruise, I went with my travel planners recommendation to get the cheapest booking available by not having an assigned inner cabin. When we were finally assigned a cabin, we were on the 2nd deck below the Karoke bar! I was concerned being on the lowest deck and also the music that may keep me up at night. I was wrong! It was quiet and because we were low and in the middle of the ship, there was hardly any movement. In addition, our stateroom attendant was phenomenal and went out of her way to accommodate us in any way possible. There were so many activities to do on and off the ship at port. We played dodgeball and swam on the ship. We played bingo and enjoyed the casino. We frequented the several bars and enjoyed the diverse music and dancing. We gathered with our family to play cards on several nights and enjoyed some shows and a comedian. Off the ship at port, we snorkeled, enjoyed the beaches,played with monkey's and held a sloth in Honduras. We visited some Mayan Ruins in Belize and went exploring on a scooter in Cozumel. Our Main Dining Attendants were very accommodating for our large crowd every evening. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was enjoyable. Our experience with Royal Caribbean has been so great! I doubt we will ever cruise on another cruise line. Thank you Royal Caribbean! Read Less

The ship is starting to show it's age. Furniture, carpets and other things are looking tired, worn and styles and fabrics are very dated, There are glass sculptures on deck 5 that have broken pieces and they have been that way for a couple years. A few places like the Star Lounge have been redone and it makes a world of difference to compare those spaces to the original decor in other areas. One elevator (one of the only bank that goes up to deck 14) has been out of order forever. We were on this ship in September and it was out of order then. Now it is blocked off and the door walled off! With the increased number of folks with mobility issues, canes, scooters, chairs etc. as swell as physical size limitations makes using the elevator a real pain. On deck 14 you can wait 10 minutes for an elevator. We had a Junior Suite and loved the extra room. Everything in the room was original decor because we booked this in the inaugural year and I have the photos! Our room attendant was excellent and attentive. Same thing with our waiter in the dining room. The food was good and portions were fine. The selection of entrees continues to drop. There is very little variety from nite to nite. The "Classic Menu Offering" has disappeared. A couple of the items are offered every nite but they are listed to look like variety on the menu in terms of the evenings offerings rather than being standard and the menu having about six new items to choose from for that evening. I think this is intentional to push you to the specialty dining. RCCL just cannot get dining requests implemented. We booked this and requested My Time. We were assigned 5:30 dinner. This the fourth cruise in a row from RCCL where they just can't get the information from the booking to the onboard dining room.Folks this is not brain surgery. Then I stood in line twice because the first guy was only authorized to set up a queue to resolve passenger issues. He was difficult and I finally just left and ate when and where I wanted as the evenings progressed!! Oh well..Windjammer has a good variety and they are good at keeping the steam tables supplied. Omelettes in the morning were a challenge as they were prepared individually. Plenty of options for each individual taste. Tables were cleared and cleaned quickly to allow new guests to be seated. We booked Chops Grille one evening. Food was excellent but the menu and options continue to be more and more limited. If you want sea food or surf and turf get your wallet out AGAIN! Now remember that you have already paid for dinner as a part of your cruise fare, plus you paid an upcharge to go to the restaurant and now they want another $29.00 if you want shrimp with that steak. Ridiculous! Johnny Rockets the 50's diner used to be an up charge of $3.98. The charge now is $11.95/pp. Now that is for a hamburger mind you. An take into account you have already paid to have lunch so why do they need to gouge you again? It is just like the drink gratutities going up to 18%. There is no reason a small G & T should hit $15.00 and then if you order in port in Galveston the fine state of Texas tacks on a couple more bucks. Welcome to Texas! We had a couple good entertainers that were great. The other nites they insist on using the Royal Caribbean Dancers. One nite is sufficient. I don't care how many costumes you change or what song you choose - once I have seen that dance I don't care to see it three more times in a different costume with different music. Enough already. Book some entertainers with variety. They continue to do the Quest game show. I view it as raunchy, fraternity type drunken yahoos. It is not the scavenger hunt that is advertised since the repeat cruisers come with supplies and a game plan to get on camera. The other games shows - Love and Marriage, Battle of the Sexes etc. are getting very old. Clearly no effort has been put into developing some new material or new options. It is same old tired stuff with different passengers. The same goes for the daytime activities. Many of the things listed on the Cruise Compass as an "event - or thing to do" for that time slot is nothing more than marketing. A Tagguer Watch sale is not an "activity" it is an invitation to come drop some coin. The same with come to the spa for tips to bust that belly fat - oh seriously! Many times there is nothing going on on the ship and I venture to say they have zero planning for a rainy day or inclement weather. There is no additional entertainment staff offering enrichment lectures, new things to do, tours or activities. Just go entertain yourself or maybe spend some money in the casino. Poor way to treat guest in my view. This daily itinerary hasn't changed much in 10 years. Come on folks - make a little effort! Embarkation was a dream. Easy and efficient. Disembarkation was a nightmare. Took us over two hours to move from dining room to customs. That facility is not meant to handle a ship with that number of passengers -- especially when there is another ship in port. Too few customs stations and agents. Lines snaked back to the ship. Three lines would queue down to one agent. It was stupid. Add to that they did not enforce their own rules about going ashore when your number was called. If they did then numbers 23 and 24 would NOT have been off the ship and in front of us (No. 5) in the customs lanes. Traffic jam in and out of the port just prolonged the agony of getting out of the area. We will not sail out of Galveston again in Jan. Feb. or March. It is just not far enough South. You cannot count on warm weather on day of embarkation, disembarkation or the first day at sea. Takes longer to sail farther south to pool and summer type weather. Lesson learned! The loyalty program of RCCL is second to NO ONE. The Diamond Club social from 4:30 to 8:00 PM every nite is unparalleled. If you choose not to go to the club the perks are added to your card to use elsewhere on the ship. Nobody has as good a program. Add to that the free photo, the reduced internet program and other small niceties and they have a real winner. Photo options are good for the most part. The second formal nite we had at least 20 photos taken but as luck would have it only 2 had our feet on them! Not much point in wearing a gown so they can take your picture from mid knee up! They overdo the running around the ship and interrupting your dinner to get photos. We don't buy them but the prices are reasonable if you do want them. We no longer book he next cruise onboard. RCCL has gone to charging more than $100 per person for any changes you might need to make. It used to be free to change your mind or upgrade your cabin or change the date but not anymore. So we don't book onboard. We had a good time. We are booked for a different ship and different port in March. We will continue to cruise. Each line has it's good and bad. We think it is a good vacation but they really need to consider charging for the cruise and not all the nickel here and dime here once you are onboard. That gives a bad taste. Read Less
