We chose this cruise for the itinerary and not the actual ship. We also heard RCI ships were the best for holidaying with teenagers. This was proved to be very true as our sons (16 & 13) enjoyed their time on board, so such an extent that we never saw them at night times! We thoroughly enjoyed the ports of call and also the overall ship experience. the food in the Windjammer for Breakfast and Lunches was excellent. The night time entertainment in the centrum area was of a very high and fun standard. Would say on a slight negative that deck 2 was very noisy (not by fellow guests),but by mechanical noise at night, first few nights very bad sleep, but got used to it slightly! Potentially a day at sea mid way through the week would lessen the tiredness of a busy day after day of ports of call. Will certainly holiday / cruise again with Royal Caribbean, in fact looking for next year for my 50th right now!!! We did take the drinks package probably only because of the unit price for drink was so high, drunk more that we usually do on holiday, but not to an excessive level.
