Nicely redone Public Areas and Rooms - a lot more inside cabins added - which makes me wonder if Royal Caribbean is now trying to compete with Carnival? Note we were very comfortable in our cabins.
Food in the Restaurants and Windjammer were a mixed bag - I have found on Princess and Norwegian lines the food was better. Surprised that the Windjammer dining closed early every night - even when we had ports of call - only option then was the cafe on the Promenade - deserts across the board were some of the most lacking along with many of the entrees. Coffee and soups were either good or watered down. Had a smoked chicken appetizer that was sensational.
Surprised there weren't more classes - given that it was a holiday cruise - would have been nice to be able to tour the kitchen or have a gingerbread challenge or even pottery painting. Thought I might try the scuba as a first experience but was told that it was an internet pre-register only - no exceptions.
Did the Manatee encounter - trainer was fantastic, photos expensive but expected it. 5.5 stars for this - the protected beach area for snorkeling was passable but few fish the day we were there. Food was excellent (had shrimp tacos).
Left my bathing suit on the ship - was able to find one in the shop along with t-shirts - reasonably priced
Went on a private tour to stingray city and a reef snorkeling adventure - sting ray city has gotten too over crowded - but loved the reefs - food was good
