We thought we would try this taster cruise, have not travelled on Royal Caribbean before, but have on P&O, Cunard, Fred Olsen and Saga. Very quick to board using on - line sea pass. A beautiful ship, a work of art. Some work was still going on around the ship, but most places were operational. But ....... we were glad it was only 4 days as we would not go back on this ship. We found that compared to the P&O Azura there were not enough shows for us. It caters mainly for families I would say .For which the facilities looked excellent. The theatre was lovely, and Grease excellent, but Azura has 3 main venues. The drinks prices were very dear, plus 18% added. If you liked walking around and drinking it was great. In our opinion it was not a proper cruise ship, such as Cunard. It was brash and noisy, Butlins afloat !! The food was good in the main restaurants, breakfast was a nightmare in Windjammers, worst we've seen. Also no midnight buffet on this ship !! Just a small pizza bar with a long queue ! All in all there was a wide age range, but if you want refinement and a stylish cruise I don.t think this is it. Its a seaside resort on sea.

All loud with no style
