Sail Date: Feb 2013
Cabin: Junior Suite
Traveled with children

Arrived off ship around 9Am....have cruised RCCL 7 times over the last 8 years....have been on different ships, different ports, different Captains, different Cruise directors....this ship is great....although she is going in for overhaul soon, you wouldn't know it....clean as a whistle....

I have only encountered one other Captain who was as visible and involved, and that was Captain Johnny on the Mariner several years back....think he is currently on one of the mega ships.

That said, Captain Olaf is great....he attended many of the functions, not just the gatherings you get invited to....Richard Spacey Cruise director and his partner in crime Frankie the Activity manager were the best that I have encountered....what a treat!...

Port Reviews

Perfect Day at CocoCay

Get there early, around 9am and rent your umbrella then....most waters port activity sells out by 10:30am....lunch is great, but only served until around 1:30pm....
