Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2019
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Interior

After having the worst cruise and land tour, on their sister company ,The Millennium by Celebrity in Alaska in May, I was skeptical to go back to Royal Carrabean, but our cruise was just fabulous !!

We were 9 people, family vacation, had four cabins and found the service amazing!

The ship is refurbished and really looks good.Unlike Celebrity who did nothing for us, Royal Carrabean gave amazing customer Service and went out of our way to make us happy.We had two small children in our party, 4 and 6, and they had plenty to do , even if at this time of year there are not many children on board.They have mini golf , mountain climbing and fun activities and games by the pool. Our cabin person was great and was there to attend to every need. The food was great both at the buffet and at the dining room.We had dinner very night in the dining room and the service and food was lovely.The shows were very professional and a lot of fun.The cruise director was very visible and put together great shows. Live music all over the ship. By the pool, by the bars and in the lobby, you could dance or just listen any time of day.Was presently surprised at how spacious our inside cabins were and the cabins with the two children had bunk beds which went up during the day.The gym was good, except that they charged too much for spinning classes that were not worth it.Ports of call were all beautiful.Two days at sea, Ponce, Porto Rico, St.Kitts,St. Lucia, Grenada,Barbados and Antigua.Two days at sea at the end. Perfect itinerary for a large group.We all enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to anyone.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1V 3011

cabin was more specious than expected .Nice size bathroom for a ship. Loved the dark and quiet sleep of the inside cabin.Lots of space to unpack all of our clothes for 11 days.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

found a driver as we got off the ship and had a great tour of the Island and it's beauty and highlights for less than half price of the ship. Got back in plenty of time.

St. Lucia

Again got private driver at the Island .Saw beautiful views and scenery and was taken to a beach at the end. Got picked up from the beach after amnestying hour and was taken back to the ship in plenty of time.Cost a fraction of the ship'd price and was able to see much more in less time, not just one thing like on the organized excursions.


walked a bit into town as to avoid being bombard by all the drivers too close to the port.The farther you walk the cheaper it gets. Got a driver who took the 9 of us for $50 U.S. for an hour an half in a mini van.Showed us all the views, the great areas and vistas.The area with the beautiful resorts and Rihanna's house.Took to a local restaurant and banana plantation, the took us to a beautiful white sand beach and picked us up an hour later and took us back to the ship in plenty of time.


Found a driver after we walked a bit into town.Took all around the Island and showed us all the beauty of the Island. Then asked to go to Anse beach. Left us there and then picked us up later and took us back to the ship in plenty of time.


Found a driver in town. Looks us all around the Island and was presently surprised at how beautiful this Island is.Probably one of the best and did not expect that.Beautiful view and then asked to go to Jolly beach.Beautiful white soft sand and amazing beach. Got picked up later and came back to the ship in plenty of time. Walked around the local markets.
