Sail Date: Jan 2019
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

This is our first cruise with Royal Caribbean, but our fourth cruise overall.

RC is really excellent in their embarkation and disembarkation procedures, and was much more efficient than the Princess Cruises we have been on.

We did not travel with children, but noticed a meeting place for youngsters, and pools reserved for children. I think there was an arcade (at extra cost) available too.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 2D

Cabin had an unobstructed balcony on the 13th deck. Plenty of room, decent sized balcony that was shaded overhead by the extension of the 14th deck which shielded our balcony from wind and harsh sun. Loved it.

Port Reviews


Part of the Dunedin Highlights excursion, this was a stop so we could have a look at the building. I'm sure it had a lot of interesting facts about it, but I don't recall hearing much from our driver.
