The destinations were what we were wanted to visit. Having already cruised with this company on the Adventure and Explorer of the Seas we were happy with the standard. They all carry approximately 3k passengers and there is plenty of room in the various areas of the ship, although when the weather is inclement seats are at a premium. Entertainment is good as well as all the staff, especially in the restaurants and bars. They all work very hard, long, hours and are very appreciative of praise when given. Food is of a very good standard and very plentiful; you can always ask for more if you feel unfulfilled. It is worth taking out the premium drinks package if you enjoy a few glasses of wine and spirits per day. Otherwise you have to pay for all drinks, even bottled water, and they are expensive. We opted to not pay gratuities up front and spoke with customer services once we were on board to make sure we were not charged the daily charge. We chose to show our appreciation of service personally to those who deserved it over a god spread of staff.

Another fabulous cruise with Royal Caribbean.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1690
A larger than normal stateroom with a large balcony on deck 10 at the stern of the ship below the Windjammer restaurant. We had full sized sun loungers with thick mattresses in a quiet part of the ship. No noise from the Windjammer restaurant or the general walkways at all.

I was traveling with my daughter and a friend and, bearing in mind we all all females over 50, we had enough room for our clothiers, suitcases etc. We had 2 single, very comfortable, beds and a double sofa bed.
