Sail Date: Aug 2014

I am extremely well traveled and sometimes hard to please and I just wanted to say that this cruise was absolutely amazing. We had sailed one other time in the past with Royal Caribbean on one of their newly refurbished boats and yes, that ship compared to the Paradise was a bit nicer, but we read online that was to be expected. We are from Tampa, so we were happy for the easy in and out convince as well as the great price!

Spectacular customer service! Although this will not be the newest ship in the fleet to cruise on, it is seriously clean and well cared for and not to mention THE STAFF IS AMAZING!!!! Every single person who waited on us even in passing new our names (they must train them on remembering names and drinks because everyone who even waited on me once, remembered my name and preferences- it was truly awesome!). The customer service blew Royal Caribbean out of the water. I am sold on this company now just because of their effort and literally, I could feel how hard everyone was trying to make it a truly memorable experience and to which I am grateful.

There were tons of things to do on the ship! The comedians (2 guys) were just hilarious. We were there for 4 nights and I didn't get bored once. We went to multiple shows a night, every night and came out laughing and happy! There was ping pong, mini golf, a basketball hoop, big chess, bean bags and tons more. During the day they have big bingo tourneys, activities in the casino, trivia, sales in the ships stores. They kept us busy to the very best of their ability and it worked! We had a blast around the ship.
