25th with hubby

Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)
We were a little dissappointed with our St. Maarteen ATV excursion as we were not told that we would be going to Orient Beach for two hours and we didn't bring out suits.Oh French side is nude! Oh well entertainment!

Ship is in good shape but going into dry dock soon for updates. Showing a little wear.

Lived at the Solarium pool as we had no kids with us and it was our anniversary. Staff was good about making sure that no children 16 or younger were there although there were parents who wanted their kids to hang out in the Jacuzzi.No go!

Went to the spa for mani & pedi loved it but they are always trying to push Elmeis products & more services.$29 for the mani.

Would have liked a bit more times in some of the ports such as one port we got in at 7:00 but the shops didn't open until 10:00 and we had to be back on ship for 3:00

Always love RCCL. Food was good but not great this time but the service in main diningroom was impecible! Less

Cabin review: 3508

Hubby picked out the room as he was in the merchant Marines & wanted a non obstructed view. I would have liked a balcony but he made the reservation as a gift! Hated the pillows after 9 days as we are used to bigger ones, next time bringing my own. We were in a small hallway off the main walk and the with two staff only doors. Quiet but I head ship noises in the night. Light sleeper, my prob. For an older ship room was in great shape. Had a view of the very front of ship.
