We have been cruising with Royal Caribbean for 10 years. This was the worst ship for families we have ever experienced. First, no babysitting service. Every cruise we have gone on has had babysitting service. This did not and they are not able to accommodate. We prepaid to eat in the specialty restaurants every night thinking that we'd have sitter service.
The kids rooms were old and out-dated.
The chef at the Italian Restaurant has some kind of fetish with mushrooms, so if you don't like mushrooms your menu selection is very limited.
There is no section for suite quests at the pool. The suite chairs are far removed from the pool and you can't use them if you want to watch your kids. That said, they don't police the chairs that well. People come down and reserve their chairs at 7 even though there is a 30 minute period where if you don't show up you lose your chair.
The entertainment they have playing on the movie screen above the pool is completely inappropriate for children. Instead of playing something nice, like a movie or something, they re-played x-treme sports videos, in some cases, showing people being carted off a mountain with injuries (really nice for a 4 and 9 year old to see).
While their were families on this cruise, most were older, so they didn't have much patience for children.
Very small for suite class. No windows in either bedroom and the balcony was very small.
They call it deep sea fishing when in reality they go to a real and catch little colorful fish.View All undefined undefined Reviews
Great Island that is low-key and relaxed. Taxi service will take you anywhere.
The people in Martinique were very rude. Also, they have no system of organization with the Water Taxi's. You'll be standing there waiting for one and 20 people will walk in front of you once the taxi approaches. Also, usually a long wait.
Beautiful Island. We took a taxi to the beach and had a wonderful day.
Always wonderful in St. Maarten, the local beach and shopping were perfect.
