We have traveled 5 times with RCCL and were impressed with the service, food and accommodations on this ship. The dining staff at the 3rd deck main restaurant were outstanding as well as the housekeeping staff..
The embarkation and disembarkation was very smooth and well-organized. We were impressed with the Port of Cape Canaveral and nearby Coco Beach where we took advantage of a "snooze and cruise" package, leaving our car at the hotel and they shuttle us to and from the port.. Certainly Port Canaveral is better organized and less congested than the ports in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.
One drawback to our cruise is that we were never advised that this cruise was very children oriented with RCCL's special offers of free trips for children under 12 years of age for the Caribbean trips. The staff advised that due to the "family-orientation" of this cruise with special free rates, they had over 600 children on this cruise and near 2000 children the week before. With this many, we felt we were on a floating nursery. As we were looking forward to a more sedate vacation, this will make us more selective on future cruises.
The entertainment was very good, especially with the Ice Show, the musical Come Fly with Me and the Water Show. The individual musical groups that played Latin, Caribbean and Dixieland music were outstanding.
The cabin was very comfortable and clean. Next time we will select a cabin toward the aft of the ship to be conveniently closer to the restaurants.
