We have always traveled with RC because it has the largest and best ships, the architecture and finishings on board are stunning, the crew and staff are friendly and helpful, the ports are various and the excursions are generally good. Being conservationists, we were not at all interested in the numerous dolphin, turtle, stingray excursions. We wondered what garbage is expelled into the sea, and what the grey smoke coming from the smoke stacks is. We wondered why the staff has to work seven days a week. We appreciated the safety standards and trust the captain and crew. We would love to have more in-depth talks about the culture/history/ecology of each port and also the history of the Caribbean and its creation by a meteor. We would love to have way less selling ~~ the Promenade resembled a flea market the last day at sea, and it was hard to walk through it. We would rather pay more for our cruise and get complimentary soft drinks and premium coffee. Nickel-and-diming does not "become" the Royal standard. We would like to see far more excursions that allow us to volunteer and actually help the people in the various port stops.

Best cruise line to meet the needs of all ages, with an emphasis on families.

Cabin Review

Cabin 9687
Our cabin, as expected, was very small. We had to move the glass table into the closet to be able to walk ~~ there were 3 adults ~~ and we could not sit on the couch because it held one of our suitcases. We could not hear the Captain's daily announcements in our room. The bathroom was very pleasant and functional, and all the little drawers in the room were helpful. Our room was very dark and quiet. A clock in the room would be helpful.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Beach
    Beautiful beach and very nice resort-like facilities with pool and children's water park in one part, and many water activities, and some shops. The shops opened just a bit after we arrived. A great place esp. for families with children, but also a quiet beach for adults. Not too crowded, private beach.

  • Bamboo Rafting
    I had taken the river raft trip in 1975 with my parents, and had wonderful memories of it, so I was excited to take it again, this time with my daughters. It did not disappoint. The little herb garden, complete with marijuana plants, was interesting. The beautiful grounds had a nice bar and bathrooms, and of course, they tried to sell us some souvenirs. The highlight of this excursion is the raft captains who are always so friendly and accommodating, taking your picture, and pointing our orchids in the trees and historical sights. There is a soft sell in a few spots on the river from native vendors, and an interesting guy who runs along the bank and throws a little wooden carving of the raft in your boat; one tourist bought it for $4. This is a very peaceful float down a beautiful little river, and at the end your captain will offer a hand-carved souvenir which he created and will personalize with your name and his. A fun trip for children, and they do offer life vests. The water is around four feet deep, we were told, and it is very clean. This was the best excursion for us! Do cover yourself in mosquito repellent. No snakes or crocodiles or anything in these waters.

  • Beach
    Beautiful private beach with blue water, very nice bar. We had fun watching a mother hen with baby chicks and spotting an iguana in a tree. The free drink, pink punch, that comes with this tour is non-alcoholic and does not come from the main bar. The tour bus was very clean and fancy, but the tour guide was a bit curt and bossy, and be sure to get back on before the appointed time or she will raise her voice at you. All in all, many of us felt the Cayman tour guides were not as friendly and some said they were rude. Also, be aware that we were led by foot several blocks through the town square to our tour buses, without warning or explanation in the heat, which could have been hard on older people and young children. All in all, not our favorite port.
