My wife and I chose this cruise for two reasons, we were celebrating our 10th year anniversary and the ship departed in our home town of Houston. Since this was our first long vacation in a few years and we wanted to splurge without having the kids, we chose to travel in a grand suite. Having been on other cruise lines from Galveston we wanted try Royal for the first time. Being in our early 30’s we also wanted something less appealing than a party ship but also to avoid the high class on upscale cruise ship and older crowds.
The room was large and felt like a decent hotel room rather than a small cruise ship room. If your budget allows we highly recommend cruising in a suite, it’s well worth the perks and service amenities. The only complaint with regards to our room was towel animals only appeared every other night rather than nightly.
We missed the Grand Cayman port due to seas hitting 17-20 foot waves and the inability to tender. Royal credited back tour and port fees to our sea card account.
