We chose this cruise for the value for money it had. From day one it was fantastic, the embarkation was smooth and quiet quick, the ship is beautiful, floating city! The crew we found were always helpful,friendly and courteous. The entertainment on board was great not something we would normally do but really enjoyed it. Plenty of activities on board my husband became addicted to the flow rider!! but i was happy to curl up with a book! We only went on one excursion in Suva which was to a beautiful resort just stunning!! The stops in New Caledonia and Latoka are lacking in the wow factor but it must be remembered that these are still developing countries who go out of their way to make you feel welcome! So i recommend if you can to take a shore excursion at these ports. The service we received on board was second to none, from our cabin steward to the boys in the Rbar(our favorite watering hole!!) everybody was lovely. The meals in the Sapphire dinning room are amazing as were our waiters! Food in general was great and plenty of it! We purchased a drinks which i highly recommend if you like to have a drink! We made some lovely friends on board which made the trip even more special. While we didn't have any children with us it seemed there was plenty for them to do, but the adults only pool area was very nice away form all the noise and hustle of the main pool area. In short we loved our first cruise experience and will definitely be cruising again, and it will be more than likely with Royal Caribbean again!!

Amazing!!
