I wanted to do a Transatlantic and the price was really good on this one. I don't usually sail on Royal, but I couldn't say no to this cruise. The ship itself was wonderful and the crew was fantastic! The only real downfall in my estimation was the dining. What I really enjoyed was the friendliness of the staff from the room stewards to the Captain. They worked very hard to keep us happy and entertained and they succeeded!
The ports of call were excellent as well. We started from Malaga Spain which is a real hidden treasure in Spain. Wonderful city with a lot of things to see and great food! We stopped at Lanzarote, Grand Canaria and Tenerife, 3 of the Canary Islands. They are just amazing to see and go back to, volcanic islands with fascinating scenery and all different. I had just been to 2 of the 3 in April this year and was happy to be there again. The last stop was Nassau which I've been to many times so nothing really exciting, but I'm sure there were many on the ship that had not been there before.
I would do this cruise again and on this ship in spite of the dining disappointment.
