We chose this cruise because we wanted a nice getaway and we live very close to the port. After several bad experiences with Royal Caribbean I wanted to give it one more try. This time I wasn't disappointed. Things were much better. I have to say Royal Caribbean has some beautiful ships. We had a junior suite and it was large and roomy with lots of storage space. The bed was very comfortable, and there was a sofa and a comfortable chair and ottoman besides a chair at the desk. A safe was in the cabinet by the desk and the closet was a big walk-in. The bathroom was a little on the small side but it had a bathtub that was very high and difficult to get in and out of it. There were two very small medicine cabinets on one on each side of the mirror. Our balcony was large with two lounge chairs and two regular chairs. Lighting was either very dim with the bed lamps on or very bright with the ceiling lights on. There was a small fridge in another cabinet and a coffee maker on a tiny table. Dining was not our favorite but that's subjective. Everyone's tastes are different. We ate breakfast in the dining room daily and dinner every night but one when we ate at Giovanni's Table. Our service was very good and at our traditional dining we had two of the best waiters. However, we thought the food was not the best and quality has gone down over the years. I didn't like the buffet because of having to handle the serving utensils that thousands others have touched. Entertainment was good. The first comedian was funny the first night but his adult comedy was vulgar and disgusting. I've heard adult comedy before that was very good but his was not. The ice show was exceptional and the air dancers were great. Saturday Night a Fever was okay but the music tended to drown out the singers. Trivia would have been more enjoyable if it wasn't held near the casino in Schooners where we could smell the smoke. The DreamWorks parade was fun. With over 4000 passengers on board tendering took forever in Grand Cayman. However, we never had to wait too long for an elevator. Embarkation was a zoo because of the late boarding delayed by several hours because of a medical emergency they had on the previous cruise. It took over an hour from the time we reached the port to board the ship and our cabins were not ready until after 4:00. We never went to the flow rider or slides or rock climbing wall and we don't ice skate. The adult pool was crowded and had very little shade for it or the hot tubs. The other pool was crowded as well. Someone was always trying to sell us something. Despite the fact it wasn't a school holiday there were quite a few kids on board who were running all over the ship uncontrolled the last two days. I was nearly knocked over at least twice. We were disappointed that there were no chocolates on our pillows at night, no pen or paper in the cabin, and the food quality was way down. Would I go on this ship again? Most likely not unless it was too good a deal to pass up.

Cabin Review

Cabin 9568
Itwas large and roomy with lots of storage space. The bed was very comfortable, and there was a sofa and a comfortable chair and ottoman besides a chair at the desk. A safe was in the cabinet by the desk and the closet was a big walk-in. The bathroom was a little on the small side but it had a bathtub that was very high and difficult to get in and out of it. There were two very small medicine cabinets on one on each side of the mirror. Our balcony was large with two lounge chairs and two regular chairs. Lighting was either very dim with the bed lamps on or very bright with the ceiling lights on. There was a small fridge in another cabinet and a coffee maker on a tiny table. We were mid ship forward and it seemed like we walked for ages to get anywhere.
