Had a great cruise, we flew in fromCincinnati day of cruise with a obligatory stop in Atlanta without issues. Embarkation was fast and easy, was eating lunch at Windjammer by 12:00.
I have read lots of bad reviews about selection and quality of food. We found the food to be very good throughout the nine day voyage with relly good selection.
Our room the large panaramic view was best stateroom we ever had, yes better than a balcony. The extra space and awesome view was well worth the price.
We bought the ultimate dining package on Black Friday for 30% off so we ate at chops 4 times and Giovanis 3 times and Isumi (sp) All food and service was excellent. We do this again well worth the money, we found the MDR on past cruises to have very slow service and bland food. The dining package also included lunch so on sea days so we ate at Sabors and Johnny rockets again great food and great service.
The entertainment was also very good, the singers never missed a note they are some of the best singers at sea. The ice show was very good and so was the top tier show with the skaters The headliners were very good. there was a juggler from AGT who was very good,sorry I dont remember his name. There was an Illussionist (sp) people seemed to enjoy it, me not so much.
The Diamond Lounge was very nice especially when they opened up the Cosmo club for the overflow.The first night they had football there.
WE did the feed the sharks and turtles trough royal caribbean it was at times unorganized but very exciting being so close to sharks. I t also had a dolphin show that had tricks you would see at Sea World.
We did the Jolly Roger Pirates on our own. Great trip took a10.00 taxi ride to dock checked in had great time.The snorkeling was great saw lots of fish and a shipwreck.WE also did the rope swing and lots of pina colodas.
WE did the snorkel excurionsion to Coco beach booked through RC Was not a great trip we took a bus to the beach got snorkeling equipment and our chair.To get to snorkle you had tocross over slippery rocks, not fun.There wasnt much to see, water was kinda of choppy.
WE rented a jet ski lots of fun.
Overall great cruise only bad time was the Bonaire excursion. We did self disembarkment without issue.
Cabin was awesome lots of space two TVs and great view from deck 12.
