We cruised over the Christmas holiday with our two adult children and their spouses. Everyone had a very good time and we would do it again. (We have been on several cruises in the past but this one was the first over a holiday and it was a great way to get the family together for the holiday and enjoy an adventure together.)
RCI has done a nice job in redecorating the public areas and rooms – very pretty.
We booked a junior suite on the tenth deck for us, and outside cabins on the seventh deck for the kids. We have always booked junior suites on past cruises and I was concerned about the cabins the kids had, but they were wonderful! I still prefer the junior suite because of the extra amenities (early boarding, bathrobes, etc.) and the balcony, however I was impressed that the outside cabins were as nice and roomy as they are. The room stewards for our cabin and our adult children’s cabins were all fabulous, as always, on RCI.
Cabin was very nice -- enjoyed the balcony in particular!
We planned to get off at this port and explore however because there were seven ships in port that day, the tenders could not keep up and though we were in group seven it was late morning by the time they called our group and so we decided to stay on board being concerned that catching a tender back might be difficult and the ship was leaving at 3:00. Our son and his wife decided to go ahead and get off and enjoyed exploring the port. They had no trouble getting a tender back so apparently we fretted for nothing.
The Falmouth, Jamaica port is very pretty and easy to get around. We enjoyed shopping at many of the stores, and lunch (and internet access) at the Margaritaville restaurant. The kids took a tour -- a dolphin tour -- and enjoyed it very much, getting some great pictures of themselves with the dolphins.
