This was our first cruise with Royal Carribean and it won’t be our last! We traveled with 3 other couples. We chose this cruise because three of the people we were with had never cruised before and were a little nervous about taking a longer cruise. We had a fantastic time. The ship is beautiful, the promenade a great place to hang out. We all had balcony rooms on the 8th deck. We never had a problem getting a chair at the pool. The entertainment was fun. The comedian very funny. Don’t miss the X versus Y game it was really funny. We bought the drink package and it was the way to go. Coco cay was so beautiful! We want to go back when they are finished with construction. We didn’t do an excursion in Nassau and wished we would have. Instead we went shopping and stopped at the straw market. We enjoyed the food in the dining room for dinner. Did the buffet for breakfast and pizza for lunch. We didn’t try any of the specialty restaurants. There is always something to do if you want to. All in all we had great weather and a fantastic time. The first time cruisers want to go again!

Beautiful Ship!

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 8N 8336
Our cabin was spacious with lots of room in the closet to hang clothes and shelves to put clothes on. Our cabin steward kept our cabin neat and clean. He did a great job and left us cute towel animals.
