This was the first sailing since the ships drydock and the work done on the ship was obvious. You would never know the ship is almost eighteen years old. Most of the public areas were sparkling the cabins clearly had new carpet and furnishings, and chairs and chaises across the ship and its decks were in excellent condition, if not clearly new. We also found the ship staff’s attention to detail excellent with regard to keeping it clean, never seeing garbage, spare plates or glasses lying around whether in the Windjammer where tables were cleared immediately or drink classes cleaned up right away on deck. This is in stark contrast to our previous trip on the Anthem which we found to be dirty overall and staff indifferent. Embarkation was a breeze, pulling up to the ship at 11am and getting right on and getting off at the end of the trip wasn’t much more difficult. From a crowd perspective, you never felt crowded, even at peak times in the Windjammer, or in the Royal Promendade, making this in excellent size ship. Dining room service and food was pretty good, certainly not gourmet but serviceable. Specialties Giovanni’s Table and Chops were enjoyable, just keep in mind desserts in Giovanni’s are brought out on a dessert cart and are not particularly fresh. Windjammer while spacious and clean, should have a whole lot more variety at breakfast and lunch aand the food was rarely hot. We’ve seen much better on other RCCL ships than this, especially given the limited options at those times around the ship. Other major complaint was the VOOM internet which was almost unusable on the ship despite the high price. Again, the slowest i’ve seen on their ships. That being said, we enjoyed ourselves, who wouldn’t when getting five days in the sun. Entertainment was better than we expected but with the Ice Show and the Headliners, both the comedian Mike Marino and Joel Mason.

Very Nice

Cabin Review

Cabin 7644
Excellent size and storage. New furniture, carpet and drapes. Very comfortable for the trip even if the bed was hard. Balcony nice, if a bit small, with a nice table, perfect for breakfast in the room
