This was our first trip out of Baltimore and aboard RCL. The ship, though rather old now, appeared to be well maintained and about as large as we would like. Crew were all very friendly accept for one of the guest service clerks who must have been having a bad day when we asked him to help in describing a charge on our account. It ended up being a DVD that we purchased. The charge statement could use some more detail on it to avoid such requests. Entertainment was really good and the food in the main dining room ended up being quite good after a couple of days of being less than steller. Our waiter helped us out by recommending some choices and having us avoid others which was much appreciated! The shore excursions were managed pretty well but varried in value for the money. We ate at two out of three specialty restaurants and Chef's Table all of which were top drawer. Over all we rated this cruise 4 out of 5. It would have been a 5 if the main dining room food had been more consistant throughout the cruise and St Thomas (probably damaged by the storms) replaced St Croix. We plan to go again on this cruise but not every year like many guests do apparently.

Very enjoyable and a getaway from winter

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 2B 7562
This starboard side cabin was spacious enough for two and central located on level 7 midway between the restaurants and theater which we walked to a lot. It was a little vulnerable to rough weather roll & yaw which we had going and coming but otherwise quite nice. The head (bath) was newish and shower was great. The balcony was a little small but quite nice to have in the islands.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Catamaran Sail
    Snorkeling was a little too advanced for me but the beach that followed was wonderful. The rum punches were wonderful too. Overall this excursion was real good.

    Thanks to the knowledgible tour guide and skilled bus driver this tour was great. Bring some food though because lunch was not included.
