Friendly Staff But Not All That Helpful ....
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
First port was San Juan and we arrived at 4pm and left at 11pm. Since it got dark at 4:45pm, that port was quite useless.
One other major issue - when we tendered in the Dominican Republic we had an excursion planned. All excursions met in the Palace Theater to embark. Royal Caribbean had a meeting with the DR President and RC Miami officials planned on board, so the tender process was halted while the President transport was handled. That delayed our excursion by over 90 minutes, vacation time we never got back. RC should have planned around that, but it definitely felt they prioritized that meeting over the current guest's vacation time.
Also - the ship was deviod of Splenda, you could not even ask for it and get it. They didn't have it stocked at all. So if you prefer Splenda, better bring your own. Less
Cabin review: GS1252 Grand Suite
1252 didn't have hot water, the drawers open & close during heavy seas, and the speakers for the television are broken so you can't really hear the TV. We rented a movie and we couldn't hear it !! The bed was comfortable and we had plenty of closet space and drawer space. Wish the chairs & sofa were more comfortable. Location is convenient to the forward elevators.Read All Grand Suite (GS) Reviews >>
