First RCL Cruise

Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Embarkation and Debarkation was fast and easy. We carried our luggage off ourselves for an earlier debarkation.
Ship was clean and beautiful inside. Clubs were themed nicely and very large so you were never crowded.
The Solarium was AWESOME!! My favorite place to hang out and the Park Café in there had great sandwiches.
The crew was the friendliest we have ever encountered in our many cruises.
Coco Cay was beautiful even through the showers we had. So many chairs and hammocks you can always find a place to sit. Tender boats are large and its only a 5 minute tender to the island.

Entertainment was top notch! Lots of comedy at some events which included the Captain, he was great. Be sure and go to the Cake decorating event and Parade of Flags if you want a good laugh.
Way too much to do each day, no way you can even start to do it all.
The ship was very clean.
Our room was an ocean view room on deck 3 and it had more than More enough room for the 2 of us. How ever it was noisy at night. We heard lots of banging noises from below like men working closing a big heavy door about every 15 minutes so stay away from 3018 which is forward on deck 3.
It was worth every penny to take this cruise.

If you decide to try this ship you wont be disappointed. If you want to buy things from their many gift shops wait until the last day because they have many great sales from 10% to 75% off many items. If you like watches and jewelry there are some especially good buys the last day.

Over all I give it a 9 out of 10, due to the noisy room.

Would I do this cruise again? You bet i would!

Cabin review: I3018 Large Ocean View Stateroom

Rom was great but the noise from lower decks was bad each night.

Port and Shore Excursions

Beautiful island. Plenty of chairs and hammocks. Great ocean areas to swim and wade around. The ships there are really fun to walk through but require cash only since they are not sponsored by the ship. Didn't do excursion there, just relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful beaches.

Went to the Straw Market, got a great deal and returned to the ship. They have cleaned up the water front area a lot so it looks nice there now. It use to be really run down.
