Convenience: Port Canaveral within easy 1/2 day drive from home. We have usually cruised with Princess before, though we have tried others. This was first, and probably last, on Royal Caribbean. Customer service was poor; website very hard to navigate; info about tours very scanty and hard to come by. But mainly we felt the entire cruise was an effort by Ship's Company to gouge very nickel out of every pocket. Most on-board activities had to do with selling; prices for drinks were WAY higher than others; costs for specialty restaurants were double others; and above all that the sense was that all they wanted to do was SELL, SELL, SELL and rake in the money. Captain Rob had a smooth sounding voice; but for the rest, it was too over-the-top. The enforced "cheerleading" at every occasion after 7 days got to turn our stomachs. In all, we probably will avoid Royal Caribbean again; but esp. the over-sized Oasis class ships, where the size seems to have outstripped the ability to attend to individuals.

It was just OK
