Great for families!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We did not book any excursions through the cruise line but we enjoyed walking around and using the free trolley in Old San Juan. We found a starbucks near the port and took advantage of the free wifi. While on the ship, we bought the wifi package and we were happy with the service. It was cheaper for us not to buy the entire week's worth since we just check in with family a few times during the duration of the cruise.
The beach in Labadee was nice. You have to pay for an umbrella, so be ready to sweat it. There is a trolley to help you get around but it was always full. We walked up to the next station so we could get on. The buffet was super busy with few options, so we decided to go back on the ship for lunch.
We always enjoyed the ship's pools in the morning or on port days when there are no crowds. No water slides on this ship, but our kids really enjoyed the current pool. There are so many pools and hot tubs for everyone to enjoy and find a deck chair. Our children enjoyed the 3 arcades on the ship. There were often issues with the machines but the staff credited us every time. Make sure that you keep track of how much is spent on your kids' room keys! If you don't want them to spend, deactivate their cards for spending!
We would gladly cruise with Royal Caribbean again, although Disney remains our first choice. Less
Cabin review: FB12706 Family Outside View Stateroom with Balcony
The cabin was similar to the cabins on Norwegian and Disney in size. The balcony was a good size. Our stateroom attendant kept it in great shape. We had a queen size pull out couch, a bunk bed, and the king size. Lots of room. We asked the attendant to put the beds away daily as it makes the room feel much bigger. I wish there was a drying clothes line in the washroom.Read All Family Outside View Stateroom with Balcony (FB) Reviews >>
