Beautiful ship, however, way too big.

Sail Date: Oct 2016
Cabin: Large Interior Stateroom with Virtual Balcony

Chose it because we wanted to try the Quantum size ship. It was very beautiful and high tech but we feel for all the passengers, there were not near enough elevators to accommodate all the people. Always waiting for elevators and walking long distances to get from one place to another. Did not mind the rotating dining rooms, however, did not like the choice of the Silk dining room 4 nights out of a 12-nite cruise. Lucky if I eat chinese two times a year. Entertainment was terrific....enjoyed We will Rock You, The Gift and Sprectra's Caberet. Still like going to a show after early or late seating....not making reservations for shows. Biggest problem is the swimming pool. Ship staff never does anything about their "Pool Rules". You can never get a chair because people save chairs from early morning and sometimes don't come back for 6 hours or more. The pool attendants did nothing as far as removing towels or stopping all the kids from running and jumping into pool (1st rule of your ship). Rules apparently are made to be broken as RCCL does nothing to follow up on their rules.

Cabin Review

Large Interior Stateroom with Virtual Balcony

Cabin K

Loved the virtual window in the inside cabin. Made cabin seem larger than it was but you were also able to see what the weather was outside and, if lucky enough to have docked port side, you could see what was going on on land.
