Family Interior Cruise

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
This was my second cruise, and my first with my family. We ended up in sailing in a family interior stateroom that accommodates 6 fairly well. We booked this cruise mainly for the Dreamworks experience and pricepoint.

The cruise started off a bit bumpy. The first few crew members we came into contact with were rude and unable to properly help us. We then had a problem acquiring a port a crib that was supposed to be waiting in our room for us. Thankfully our stateroom attendant went out of her way to ensure we ended up with the crib we were promised.

Things did smooth out, thankfully! The service on ship was pretty good everywhere throughout the ship. Almost all crew were very polite and cordial. The food was pretty good, but slightly less impressive than I remember from my previous cruise. Our wait staff was great.

We did decide that the Dreamworks experience is not worth being a key factor in deciding on this cruise. It seemed to be too hard to More plan your day on when to see characters or entertainment. We expected there to be more themed events or entertainment.

Overall the cruise was a good family vacation and we plan to cruise with Royal again. Less

Cabin review: FI2309 Family Interior Stateroom

Nice room for a family. had a bunk bed in a smaller room with a door which was nice for separation. The curtain around the main bed was nice to have. Also has a pull out couch. Sleeps six well. Has noticeable water sloshing sound from below the cabin. Hard to tell what time it is in the room with no window.

We enjoyed this port. We first took a taxi to Dawn Beach. Dawn Beach was pretty good. The water was a bit choppy the day we were there and there was a lot of seaweed due to this. I really liked the fact that there was a reef just off shore which was pretty good for snorkeling. We then went back to town and found the shopping to be better and nicer here than St. Thomas. We took the water taxi back to the ship.

We found St. Thomas to not be as good of a family port. The shopping was overrated. We did not have enough time in fort to fully experience St. Thomas.
