We have been on all the ships, from the largest to the smallest, this was the perfect time for us becuase of the dates and time. The ship was fine, however after 4 days we found ourselves a little bored. The larger ships have much more to offer. The group that traveled over Easter was a great group of people, you never know what mix you are going to get when you show up on a cruise. The weather was great, the skys were sunny. The food in the Wind Jammer was 85% the same all 4 days with 5-6 items changing but for the most part it was ok. We only ate in the dinning room 2 nights, however both nights were fine. The kids pool and waterslide was great, most everything about this cruise was as good as any we had been on EXCEPT for one thing. When booking we asked the booking agent for Royal Caribbean who assigned our rooms about the Casino being the floor under us and below our rooms, 7579 and 7581, she said they had never had any complaints. I find it hard to beleive that in that many cruises on that ship that everyone on that floor in the past could have been deaf. Directly under our table was the Craps Table, some guy yelled until 2:30 A.M in the morning the first night, however this did break up the ding, ding, ding, from the slot machines. Night two, the Royal Caribben poker raffle, giveaway with loud speaker until 3:00 A.M. Night three, Mr. Craps is back until 2:30 again. Night four you guessed it, the loud speaker again and another game until 2:30 in the morning, and she had to be standing on the craps table or the speaker was under our bed. If anyone trys to give you a room on the 7th floor above the Casino, pass unless you plan on sleeping during the day. We plan on calling and letting them know as my wife said we have cruised 10 times and this was one of the best experiences along with the worst in one trip. I would recommend this trip for 3-4 days, just don't stay on the 7th floor.

Perfect Easter Cruise EXCEPT!!!!!!!
