We arrive in San Juan a few days before and stays at my parent's house. The day of departure arrives to the port around 12. The embarkation process was fast and super easy. In less than 20 minutes we were on board. Disembarkation was as tedious as always. Especially because of the way the girl in charge of our group was talking to us. More on that later. After we got out of the ship the line to get through immigration was incredibly long. But if get one of the guys that help with baggage they take you through a shorter line. This was the Average Cruise Vacation. Wake up in the morning breakfast at Windjammer. The Windjammer was always packed. And there was always a line. But the service was great. There was a good amount of waiters, always offering coffee, juice, and water. The same thing repeats at lunch. Our cabin was very nice and comfortable. It was on deck 12. To the front of the ship. This area was remodeled and is completely different from the rest of the ship. The halls and cabins are decorated in beige, white and navy colors. We were on cabin #1858 a Spacious Panoramic Oceanview. It was an amazing Cabin, comfortable and clean. And the location was ideal. The service on the Main Dining Room was great. Our waiters were very nice. They were always on top of things. The food was good. Ok, Entertainment. I think there were trying to entertain. But they are still doing the same activities and playing the same songs from 10 the last 10 years. At the sail away party, they play La Macarena. We went to a TV Theme Trivia and all the TV shows were from the 70s. They did the 70s Disco Party and out came the guys dress as the Village People. There was this girl from the Cruise Director Crew. She was hosting a game, we were in the middle of the game. Somebody came an ask her if she knew were was someplace located. She remembered that she had to be in that same place, picked her things and left. She didn't say anything. We didn't finish the game, we didn't know who won, nothing. From there on every time we saw that she was the hostess of an activity we were left. That was the same girl in charge of our disembarkation area. And she was treating people like garbage. There were only to Highlight on Entertainment of the Week The Search for the Nations Game. They give you a paper at the beginning of the week and you spend the rest of the week looking for the signature of the different employees of the ships depending on the country they are from. My kids came in Second Place and they got a Medal and Royal Caribbean Back Pack The other one was the Spanish Music Trivia. The Guy who hosted the game was great. And we ended up partying with another couple and singing all songs in the trivia. In the end, it was a party.

This was the Average Cruise Vacation.

Wake up in the morning breakfast at Windjammer. The Windjammer was always packed. And there was always a line.

But the service was great. There was a good amount of waiters, always offering coffee, juice, and water. The same thing repeats at lunch.

Our cabin was very nice and comfortable. It was on deck 12. To the front of the ship. This area was remodeled and is completely different from the rest of the ship. The halls and cabins are decorated in beige, white and navy colors. We were on cabin #1858 a Spacious Panoramic Oceanview. It was an amazing Cabin, comfortable and clean. And the location was ideal.

The service on the Main Dining Room was great. Our waiters were very nice. They were always on top of things. The food was good.

Ok, Entertainment. I think there were trying to entertain. But they are still doing the same activities and playing the same songs from 10 the last 10 years.

Cabin Review

Spacious Panoramic Ocean View
Cabin 1L 1858
Great Cabin, Amazing View. Comfortable and spacious. It has a King size bed and a sofa bed. Plenty of closet space and 3 big drawers. Our cabin attendant did a very good job.

The decoration is different in this area of the ship. With a white, beige and navy color palette, instead of the green and peach on others areas.
Deck 12 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
