This was first cruise, and we didn't really know what to expect. But we were blown away! All the staff were fabulous, friendly and helpful. A few people had said the ship looked tired .....WHERE? We thought it was amazing. The food was fantastic in the main dining room and excellent in the wind jammer. We did prefer breakfast in the dining room just as it was easier to be seated and a nicer surrounding. We had one evening in Chops Grille which was very nice and worth the extra money. We also had a night in Jonny Rockets ... didn't rate this very much though, at $10 per head, food is better in the wind jammer. We decided to upgrade to all inclusive drinks package after much debate 3 weeks before our cruise and glad that we did. It was just much easier, we ordered anything we liked and just showed our card. I feel we drank more than usual because we had paid for it, however we would definitely buy the drinks package again. The kids had the soda package which was great as they could get a drink when they wanted and didn't have to keep finding us to ask for one. We were at the front of the ship deck 12 with floor to ceiling window, great view. I don't think we would ever pay for a balcony as your not in your room enough. We had 2 rough days at sea, but to be honest it was no better on the lower decks so don't let your position of your cabin put you off. We went to the gym which was fully kitted out so worth taking your gym kit. We have 2 boys age 12 and 13 ...... we hardly saw them! They were off at the teen club everyday. 5 Nights they didn't even eat with us as they have teen dining and all go together. They loved the Flowrider and spent most their time there. We were lucky as there were only 30 teens on the ship so when they were on the flowrider there would be only maximum of 6-8 people queuing to do it. On one day the boys had it to themselves for a whole hour ... fabulous! Overall we would definitely go on another cruise and we would definitely go with Royal Caribbean again.

5* All the way
