Sail Date: Jan 2018
Cabin: Junior Suite

The entertainment was great as was the service. Enjoyed the rock tribute band Preferred Stock, the ice show and Grease (although wish Grease had been more family friendly). Food was ok in the Windjammer and good (not fabulous) in the main dining room. Was nice to be able to order several entree's and sample new things. I've never felt so much motion onboard a ship before, but RC can't help that. Our excursion to Cozumel (Tulum ruins and beach break) was fun. The guide was very knowledgeable - just wish there had been more time to wander around the ruins and shop. The food was ok on the excursion; the beach was beautiful. Don't know if I'd cruise in the winter again...was too windy and chilly for us to hang out on deck or at the pool. Over all - a great time with our friends and celebrating our 25th anniversary.

Great room and balcony - just right for us. Roomy room, closet and bathroom. Glad we chose it over the smaller rooms.
