The ship was huge and it never felt crowded even though there were lots of people on it. Always enough staff around to assit with anything. Cabin was nice, spacious. no complaints Entertainment....Headliners, comedians were awesome and super funny. The band was really great but the horn players were excellent!! There is always something to do esp in the evening. The service was really good. Honestly great except one particular woman "cashier" in the Casino but not going to let that efect the overall experience. Bartenders are all great!! friendly and fast service. DO your homework on ports of call before you get on the ship. I rented a car on Curacao and Bonaire so we could explore the beaches and snorkel. If you know in advance the best beaches you will save time trying to figure out last min while driving. RESERVE your car rental in advance. It took almost 1 and half hour in Curacao to rent a car, remeber its island time and they dont have many employees. Just one usually who checks you in, then brings you to the car then goes back to the next person waiting. Plus they will usually sell out of cars before you even get to sit down. You can do tours with the ship or walk around and find your own for less cost but you should book ahead of time (at home) before you arrive. DON'T Sleep in when at port. There is not enough time to explore and shop, eat ETC if you are taking your time. Don't be late getting back give yourself ATLEAST 30 mins spare time before you're supposed to get back incase of traffice or unforseen issues. My son is 12 and luckily Royal Carribean pts them in the teen group. So 12- and up. HE LOVED IT!!! so many kids and they have so much to do including their own dinner nights. Its not the same when you have a 12 year old who has to go in 12 and under group like some other cruises do. Let them be young adults and have fun!!! I met most of the kids he hung out with and they were all just happy to kinda do thier own thing when you let them. Don't forget your digital underwater- waterproof camera. a must have for these beautiful islands. Hope this review helped :-) Have fun!!!

Cabin Review

Cabin 8283
Location was great 8th floor. Spacious for the two of us. Good lighting, mid ship so half way between the aft and fwd elevators.
