Our first two RC cruises were on the Oasis and Allure. We were used to the "big ships", so were a bit hesitant choosing a smaller one, but this was the only ship headed to this itinerary. Once we got on board, worries were set aside once we realized the size of the ship was still quite large. This ship was renovated in January of 2018, so nothing felt outdated. All cabins have been refreshed with new carpeting and linens, as well as new furniture/couches. Although the cabinets are the same, this is a good thing because they offer a TON of space. Lots of drawers and shelving space everywhere. Also, I LOVE the fact the balcony is "enclosed". No frosted glass divider between you and your neighbor like on the Oasis class. It's pure steel and feels very private. Staff was great, and we had an excellent stateroom attendant named Wilfred. We did My Time Dining, but were fortunate to have the same wait staff every night. Lynton was a great waiter and worked incredibly hard. Food quality was also decent. We were mostly impressed with the Main Dining Room offerings (especially the appetizers) which were all very good. We ate at Izumi (new after the refurb), their sushi bar specialty restaurant, which was also very good. The staff there is SO FRIENDLY. I can't say that enough. All smiles. During the renovation, they also added two water slides, a flow rider, and updated their mini golf area. All were a lot of fun for two 27 year old best friend females. We like getting to act like kids every once in awhile. :] The only negative side to this cruise was the embarking and disembarking process specifically in the San Juan, PR terminal. There's NO AIR CONDITIONING in this large steel barn-like structure and everyone is herded around like cattle and it's very disorganized with lines in awkward places and people everywhere. I understand RC doesn't own this terminal, but that made the beginning and end of the cruise awful.

Great ship, nice renovations, awesome staff
