This was the third time we have done the Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao itinerary and the 4th time I have been on navigator. Each time gets better! We left the day after Thanksgiving out of the Port of Miami.
The only real huge drawback of the entire trip was the cruise-port!
This cruise-port in Miami is now borderline abysmal. We left out of terminal G. Boarding the ship took far too long. As a Diamond member the "expedited process" taking over 40 minutes was a joke. Note to the Royal Caribbean senior management bean counters - when you treat people like cattle, you have a problem. You need to fix this process. It was pretty sad.
Aside from the 4 inch slate mattress which RCL likes to outfit in each cabin, the room is large enough to easily accommodate two people. Our Stateroom attendant was excellent. We have cruised on Royal many times and this is one area that they have done. Melky was an absolute joy, our room while dated was spotless. He deserves many cudo's.
Shopping and the local casino's for this trip. A really great Island.
