This was our fourth Royal Caribbean ship but probably my 12 th cruise. I had low expectations after reading prior reviews and dealing with the cruise planner people via telephone. However once on the ship we were really pleasantly surprised. Let me start by saying that a week prior to the cruise we were able to change from the 8 o’clock seating to my time dining However this information was never conveyed to the dining staff a nightly we had issues getting our table After a lot of aggravation most nights we were able to secure a table in the main dining room with a fantastic Duo of servers. The The food in the main dining room and at the other free venues was much better than previous Royal Caribbean cruises in fact it was some of the best cruise food we’ve ever had Another glitch we had was we had made a reservation when we got on board at chops but because we enjoyed our main dining room servers so much we canceled the reservation two days ahead of time however Royal Caribbean even though they took it off of our cruise planner still charged us for the dinner and it took three tries to get it off of our bill A disappointment on the ship was the gym There was plenty of equipment that much of the equipment did not work well and there was never any staff to Fine to assist with it The ship was clean and well kept with plenty of staff We had a balcony room on the Central Park level we did notice that only she would be out that’s worked and that was frustrating There are also very few amenities in those rooms I see only thing that was provided was soap and shampoo conditioner in the shower it was the bare essentials We did not partake in any of the ships tours as we have been to those ports before Laboratory Laberdee was our favorite stop by please be advise that the tender does not run to get you back to the ship and no one tells you this when you take the tender in the morning We always found plenty of deck chairs so there was no issue to reserve seats extra early even during a full Christmas cruise we always found plenty of deck chairs so there was no issue to reserve seats extra early even during a full Christmas Cruise. Even though the ship was a full capacity we never felt the fullness of the ship and often found quiet places Something the staff could do better is enforcing the no children role in the solarium hot tub‘s and the Gym. Which it to a private tour in Cozumel through Viator. Chocolate, tequila and tacos at Discover Mexico. This was excellent. The shows were great But we did leave Cats midway. It was quite long I’m not really uplifting The diving and the eyeshadow were wonderful as well as the comedians on board Finally we all had facials or massages at the spa and truly enjoyed them however the pressure to upsell it’s quite evident

Better than expected

A disappointment on the ship was the gym There was plenty of equipment that much of the equipment did not work well and there was never any staff to Fine to assist with it

The ship was clean and well kept with plenty of staff We had a balcony room on the Central Park level we did notice that only she would be out that’s worked and that was frustrating There are also very few amenities in those rooms I see only thing that was provided was soap and shampoo conditioner in the shower it was the bare essentials

We did not partake in any of the ships tours as we have been to those ports before Laboratory Laberdee was our favorite stop by please be advise that the tender does not run to get you back to the ship and no one tells you this when you take the tender in the morning We always found plenty of deck chairs so there was no issue to reserve seats extra early even during a full Christmas cruise we always found plenty of deck chairs so there was no issue to reserve seats extra early even during a full Christmas Cruise.
