Sail Date: Jan 2014

This was my first cruise, and I couldn't be happier. The service was excellent, the food fabulous. I was impressed with cleanliness of the ship and the attention to detail paid by all crew members. The six-night cruise included stops in George Town, Grand Cayman, Falmouth, Jamaica and Labadee, Haiti.

We booked excursions in Grand Cayman and Jamaica. They went off without a hitch. In Labadee, RCI's private island, the only difficultly we encountered was trying to decide which beautiful beach we would lounge on for the day.

The 11th deck pool area was our favorite place to spend the days, and we attended entertaining shows at night. The twenty-somethings in our group danced into the wee hours of the morning at the night clubs.

Cabin Review

I was worried an interior stateroom would seem claustrophobic and crowded, but the well-planned lighting and storage areas made it as comfortable as a much larger hotel room. The only issue we had was the narrow space along side the bed (we opted for the king size, single bed). We had to either walk side-ways to use the phone or crawl across the bed. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The shower had excellent water pressure. There is limited space around the bathroom sink for toiletries, but a generous medicine cabinet held all our supplies for our 6-night stay.
