We picked this ship because it is really large. With our Star Class, getting on and off the boat was always easy. Our Genie took care of us so we waited very little. The ship has lots to do, is clean and absolutely beautiful. Our cabin was a suite. There are 2 suites bigger than ours but they don't sleep but 4 or 6. Ours sleeps 8 and was spacious. The views were great, the balcony was amazing and the service was above and beyond my expectations. Being Star Class definitely made us feel like Royalty! Your personal Genie caters to your every need. I had 4 fourteen year old boys and they had a blast. Plenty for them to do socially and they love sports. They were occupied at all times and I always felt they were safe and supervised. They loved the 24 hour room service! The entertainment was awesome. We saw Cats, the Aqua theater water show, the ice skating show, the comedy show and all of the bands and singers. We missed some shows, just ran out of time. All of the shows and bands were great! Some of our group did other events and loved them all. My husband played poker and gave it a big thumbs up. The staff at all levels are very accommodating and kind. They work hard and seem to be happy to serve. The food was delicious and we ate way too much! The shore excursions were typical. Ours was not described accurately for St. Thomas (said 2 beaches but was only 1 and rushed). It was snorkeling too and not many fish. Nassau at Atlantis is crowded and the rain closed it for a bit. But there is a beach and it has jet skis for rent and other water activities. St. Maarten was our best! Sea Trek and they threw in some snorkeling. We saw lots of fish there. Then we found a Zip line on our own afterwards that Royal Caribbean does not sell and it was the best of all. It was a zip line plus you could ride an inner tube down the mountain. Just need more time at all the stops. Typical for a cruise but there is always a rush and of course, lots of people. But everyone was friendly and we always felt safe. Bring cash off ship for extras! Jet skis Etc want cash.
Our cabin was amazing! It is located at the very back of the ship on the corner. It has a balcony and den that lets you see in three directions and was extremely large. The balcony had room for entertaining, meal time at a table for 8, viewing ship activities, privacy and sun bathing. If desired, they gladly prepare the tables for meals and it is nice. The den area is full glass on three sides so the view was amazing and it was spacious. This cabin is the only suite that sleeps 8 I think so that was what we really needed. The master is big with it's own bathroom with a tub/shower, there is a second bathroom with a shower, and a second bedroom that sleeps 4 (pull man beds). Both bedrooms have doors, not just a curtain like some rooms. The couch in the den sleeps 2 and was comfortable. There is also a second bench couch in the den but it does not make into a bed. The Star class makes this room worth every penny! Tons of special treatment and amenities all over the ship! You have a personal Genie and ours was incredible. He caters to your every need. They bring food and drinks to this room constantly! It also had a TV in every room and the den and a play station with games in the den. There is a dining table with 3 chairs in the den plus the one on the balcony. There is a bar with 3 bar stools on the balcony also. Lots of chairs on the balcony (2 lounge chairs too) and plenty of seating in the den. Plenty of closets and drawers for storage. Mini fridge in master and mini fridge in den with a small bar area (no sink). The fridges were very small though.
