Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Interior

We booked this cruise because it was 10 nights and the itinerary was a good one. The ports of call were good saint kitts was beautiful.

The ship was beautiful. I liked the way it was easy to maneuver. The thing i liked was that it had a dedicated theater. Which rccl has done away with on most ships. I just love having a choice to see an in house movie . The movies were good. I loved the windjammer the food was actually excellent. The ribs and the brisket and the all the grilled veggies were very nice. The waffle machine where belgium waffles were made fresh with all toppings every day was a plus. On other ships i have seen frozen toaster waffles. The deserts were good .The dining room was excellent with great service lobster wasn't over cooked and the prime rib was perfect. In fact every dinner we had in both the dining room and the windjammer was perfect. The latitudes coffee bar was great. The service was quick and personal touch was much appreciated. The shows were good but not plentiful which was my complaint. It lacked comedy shows and other broadway type shows. Some days no show at all??? The casino was tight but friendly. The pools were crowded but i usually don't swim since i have a pool at home it's no big deal. The bars were busy and friendly the service was great and the drinks were fairly poured sometimes even generous. I really loved our cruise on this ship .I would do it again on the same ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin 4V 1009

We loved this cabin. it wasn't real big but it filled our needs. the cabin space was adequate and the closet with great utilization of space. our cabin steward was wonderful. he was very attentive to our every need. I found this to be the case on our rccl cruises. We didn't book anything special but the cabin was in a good location and it met our needs we were very please.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

St. Thomas

we took a tour of the island . We saw the homes and shopping area. It is a very pretty island and the shopping is great for gold or diamonds. If your in the market this is the place to buy.


I was a little disappointed in antigua. It seemed to be very run down. I guess it hit by hurricane and never rebuilt to the beautiful island it once was.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

we took a tour of st kitts its just beautiful . we saw the areas where the homes were beautiful and also where the local folks lived.

St. Maarten

We love st Martin it's trying to rebuild. i saw a lot of workers trying to fix it up. Saint Martin has so much natural beauty. Also for those of you who want souninvers st Martins is the best place with the lowest prices to buy them beach bags for 4 and hats for 4 and 5 tee shirts for 4 for twenty or less. It's a fun day
