We have cruised with Royal Caribbean many times and are Diamond Plus in the Crown and Anchor Society. We purchased a Grand Suite on this occasion for my wife's birthday and were not disappointed. It was clean and neat and very nice. Lots of room and plenty of storage space. Our stateroom attendant was excellent. We used the Concierge Lounge each day and enjoyed wonderful service from the staff and concierge. The food onboard was very good in the main dining room as well as Chops, Giovanni's Table and Izumi. We also enjoyed the Chef's Table with wine tastings. The food in the Windjammer, as usual, was varied and good for breakfast and lunch. Plenty of choices depending on what you like. Service in the restaurants was very good with attentive and friendly wait staff. The service in the lounges we tried was also fine. The ship appears in good shape to us and was clean overall. The Captain, who we have sailed with before, was terrific. Very informative and friendly and funny in his commentary. The entertainment was good with a nice variety of entertainers. The shore excursions we took were interesting with good guides. We like historical tours and educational tours. Not much for beach and water. The enrichment program onboard was very nicely done and interesting. Too bad more passengers were not interested in learning something and about the Caribbean islands we visited and the history of piracy in the area. Overall, we had a great time.

Wonderful Cruise
