We decided to fly to Puerto Rico so we could see more of the Caribbean Islands. We really enjoyed the ports - Bonaire, Curacao, Aruba and St Martin. We did the shark and turtle feeding excursion in Curacao that was arranged thru RC. On Aruba we arranged our own tour and it was AWESOME. It was called Trikes Aruba. We toured in a small group for about 3 hours on 3 wheel motorcycles. Can't say enough about that excursion.
The ship and activities were fine. We were traveling with 3 teenagers and they tried the teen club several nights and said it was fun. We dined together every night but during the day we would let them do their own thing if we were at sea. That is one of the things I love most about cruising - you can let the older kids have their freedom to do what they want.
Our wait staff were friendly and efficient. I am hoping to include a picture. We did my time dining and usually ate dinner between 8 and 830 every night and we always had the same staff on deck 3 - Birendra and Antonius - table 216 :)
My daughters shared a balcony room 7688. Their room steward was very sweet - Rosaria. The balcony was huge - they had 2 lounge chairs and 2 regular chairs and a coffee table. It is the back corner room so they could see out back and to the left of the ship. My husband and I were on the same deck and our room was nice but standard balcony.
We love Royal Caribbean and look forward to our next adventure.

We got off the ship and found the taxi service. They pretty much just assign you to a driver. There are 4 different tours and we did the circle tour. Takes you to both sides of island with some stops along the way. Took about 4 hours and our driver called himself Reliable Rodney. He was very informative and gave us a ton of island facts. He took us to sunset beach and we saw the planes fly over as well as lunch at Orient beach - I can't remember the name of where we had lunch but it was on the beach next to Bikini beach.
