Sail Date: Dec 2018

We decided to splurge and do a second NYE cruise. I spent the year obsessing over Symphony. Embarkation was flawless. We arrived at port, dropped our luggage off and was on the boat in under 20 minutes. We arrived around 11:30. I don’t remember where we had lunch. I think it was Loco Fresh and it was not crowded. Our room was ready at 1:00.

(New World Problem alert) Luggage was not delivered to our room. It was delivered to our floor and we had to search for it. In fairness to the crew it was not far from the room. However, when Royal tells guests luggage will be delivered to your room, you expect that.

We had a large balcony ocean view cabin and it was lovely. There was plenty of storage space. The safe was small but we managed to finagle 2 IPods, wallets, passports and other items with a little organization. We brought 2bottles of wine and the onboard fridge worked perfectly.
