Food and service were very nice and the steam and sauna were too. This was a cruise with a good number of stops, but we were back on in time for the early dinner at 5:15 in all but one port, and the boat made it open seating that evening. R607 was a great location and nice balcony. We barely felt any movement---just some vibrations or gentle rocking at times. There was a bit of noise above us once in a while, like someone walking or running through, but it didn't disturb us. Otherwise it was a very quiet room and we couldn't hear anything from our neighbors. The wall between the bed and the closet wasn't magnetic, unlike the other walls if you are putting up hooks like we did. There was a lot of closet space and plenty of places for both magnetic and regular hooks too. The room has a closed area with shelves, an open closet, 3 open shelves in the bathroom, a desk with a chair, another chair and round table, and storage space below the TV. There are also 2 end tables. The balcony has 2 adjustable chairs and a round table. The TV is large and looks good. The curtains were effective in keeping out morning light. Our folio wasn't available on the TV nor the daily menus--neither was there. They did have a safety video on the TV that had much of the original crew of The Love Boat (no Gopher!). When you first turn on the TV it keeps playing automatically unless you turn the TV off. A very silly video and worth watching if you want to laugh at the silliness like we did. We enjoyed having so many port stops. In Curacao Blue Bay was excellent snorkeling as was on Martinique via Anse Dufour and the Bat Cave, and St. Kitts Shipwreck beach. From St. Thomas, we took a convenient ship excursion from the dock via Island Girl to St. John and went to Trunk Bay. In Barbados I did not enjoy as much the Tiami five star catamaran as it seemed too loud—more like a party boat (which others may enjoy more than me). Freeman's bay and the shipwreck is very nice in Antigua. Aruba was too windy and sandy to snorkel near the police station, but was pretty. We stayed inside security in Trinidad.

R607 was a great balcony
