Traveled with children

We were trying out the cruise from our travel agent and loved the service and the cruise, this was a good Royal Caribbean cruise. The other cruises were less hospitable, but this Indian and Philippines hospitality crew was simply fantastic, they did everything to make it great. They explained the services well and followed up. I also liked the front desk manager, captain great friendly.

It was not the best for kids and the maintenance on the ship rooms was poor. Things broke down often, we were not able to get sleep.

I loved the dining experience, but the chef got the dietary requests wrong consistently. However there were options, so we adjusted easily.

Cabin Review

lot of issues with the room, maintenance was slow to respond.

cabin was clean, but very tight!
