This was our second RC cruise. The ship layout was good, plenty of bars, strategic restrooms and the Royal Promenade was great. Service was good, plenty of entertainment options and it amazes me how they can put 3300 passengers on the ship yet it never seems crowded. The Sapphire evening dining room was very elegant and the service was great. The food was very good and there was plenty of it. Our waiters Ozzie and Caroline were very good and friendly. The NY strip steak was excellent every night. The wines were also very tasty. We dined at the Windjammer buffet several times. It was good but if you go, bypass the initial line and move deeper into the restaurant. There seemed to be more choice toward the back. Embarkation was OK, Disembarkation was better. If you're in a hurry opt for the self-assist checkout. It goes much faster. We'll cruise again.

Enjoyed the layout of the ship and the good service. Never felt crowded.

Cabin Review

Cabin 6475
Cabin was Ok. Was basic but no complaints. There is so much to do you're never in the cabin anyway. Our friends had a balcony suite and it seemed huge plus you had open air/views of the ocean. We always choose basic stateroom because we cruise to have fun, not stay in our room, but to each his own. The room was always cleaned.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Chankanaab National Park Tour
    We opted for the snorkeling/sea lion show/ tequila tasting. It was only $52 per person and was well worth the money. Our guide Max was excellent. He was patient, nice and very knowledgable. The time was a little short at the park because there was some glitch with the tour taxis and buses which caused a 40 minute delay getting to the park. Max did what he could to extend our time but his hands were tied with having to get back to the ship on time. The snorkeling was great, lots of fish, lobsters and rays. The equipment was good and the beach was nice. The sea lion show was great and the Tequila tasting may have been the best part. I drink tequila and I learned a lot I didn't know from Max. Max was the best.

  • Miami
    Miami is a fun, beautiful and vibrant city. There is much to see and do and good restaurants by the bay. Bayside Market is lots of fun. There are a lot of people so if crowds aren't your thing be advised.

  • Nassau
    Lots of shopping. We went to Senor Frogs and had a blast. Everyone was having fun and it really set the stage for the rest of the cruise. I would recommend the Frog.
