We are frequent cruisers on Royal Caribbean, and several years ago we did a 7 night Med Cruise with my father. After getting a taste of Italy and Spain (not so much France!) I have been wanting to go back. We booked this cruise shortly after it was released, and managed to get a great deal on an Aft Balcony. We used FF miles for the airfare and cashed in RCCI points for OBC, so we were already money ahead! We flew in overnight the day before and stayed at Rivoli Ramblas. First great news - our room was ready at 10 am when we arrived!

We took a cab down to the port and arrived around 11:30. Check in was quite smooth at the pier, there were no lines even for the non-C/A lines. We headed for the Windjammer and after eating went to scope out our room. The room was wonderful - plenty of room for 2 people and 11 days worth of clothes. The balcony was quite deep.

So much to say about 11 nights on the ship, so here are the highlights and things we would change:

Cabin Review

The room was great - but sometimes a bit noisy since it is right over the Safari Club.
