Food quality drops the rating! The food was so disappointing that it did influence the overall experience... you are not looking forward to eating. At the dining room, food was really not great. A dry skin on mashed potatoes, a steak you cannot cut and tough, very bland fish with it's sauce (and I usually do not salt but I was surprised how no taste it had...).

At evening, you only have the buffet or the dining room to go to if you do not want to pay extra, which is not enough choice in a week, especially went food is not great.

Imagine having to pay $2.50 for a very small bag of popcorn... come on, they have enough money to give us free popcorn!!!

Internet at $22 US/day (no place where you could connect for free), beer at $8-9 and drink at $11-13), bingo at $39 to play... all is very expensive and all extras. It ads up quick!

On the positive side, shows were great, you have to have the pizza at Sorrento's, and the solarium for +16 y.o is great. Room was very comfortable and good size (inside balcony on boardwalk).

Cabin Review

Boardwalk View Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin B1 14703

Great room. But 14th floor is just under the top floor where everything is happening so can be noisy and you need to keep the curtain closed if you don't want people to see you.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Dunn's River Falls

Tubing and Dunn's falls excursion.

Falls were very busy but nice to see. Even if lots of people, when you need to stop, it does give you a change to enjoy the view and look around.

Well organised even if lots of people. Tubing was only 25 minutes and guides were stopping the whole group to gather instead of going down the whole river. But great thing to experience.

You cannot tell you are in Haiti since it is a man-made port by Royal Caribbean. But well done and 4 beaches to choose from. It was raining in am so we did not enjoy it as much as we could of.


Found a great beach by ourselves where we went and snorkeled. Saw so many fishes and so many different kinds.

The port and where it is located is very commercial. We are not shoppers so we just walked out and went for the beach. Negotiate if you rent something... someone got a scooter for $30 so almost the same as cab rides so worth if you want to visit more around.

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

All went well for check in and easy for someone to drop you off or pick you up.
