Seas were rough the first two days, had to get patches from our friends. Definitely bring some just in case. I never get seasick, but I did this time. WE really glad to get to our first part!
Our cruise director Richard and activity manager Chris were the best! Nonstop laughs and fun! Shows were amazing and comedians were hilarious. Would recommend the Behind the Scenes tour of the theater. Very interesting and got to meet the RC singers and dancers.
Dominican is very poor, but beautiful. We did the Jeep 4x4 excursion. Lot of fun and learned about the fruits and coffee of the island. Very bad bathroom facilities on the tour tho and don't buy the cigars! They reel you in by letting you smoke a real one, but once my husband bought the sealed box and got it back to the ship, realized they were fake and had to throw them away. Waste of $40.
This is not a great cruise for young people. I had never seen so many wheelchairs and scooters in my life! A lot of elderly folks and it was slow moving at times on the ship. My kids were a bit disappointed in that. Windjammer cafe was very crowded because of the elderly. Very hard to find seating with all the wheelchairs and scooters.
Loved our room attendant and dining room staff. They catered to our every need.Definitely go with a set time to eat in the dining room. We had 8:30 pm which gave us all day to do stuff and then eat later.
Love Royal and cannot wait for our next cruise!
