SHIP Layout is interesting and fun atmosphere. Feels like a small city on the seas. ROOM Interior stateroom was small but still comfortable. MAIN DINING Service is great. Everything you could expect. FOOD Not impressive at all. Maybe you should consider specialty restaurants because there isn’t anything special happening at the buffet or main dining. But if you have to add specialty restaurants to get good food it limits the value of the cruise line. WALKING TRACK Loved the space to walk/run while having decent views. ENTERTAINMENT Shows were decent but not impressive. Comedy club was worth the time. Skip the big shows in Amber Theater and go to any live music venues at night which are very good. Ice rink on cruise ship is unexpected and crazy! Ice Games was worth seeing. SOLARIUM This was beautiful but is not peaceful or quiet. Very noisy with talking and people brining their own battery powered speakers into space to play music. EMBARKATION Went pretty quickly. Watch out if you aren’t a RCL member already, you won’t board until shortly before noon. DISEMBARKATION Face recognition was a huge time saver. Express checkout was a little slow but still acceptable. Off the ship by 7:30ish. PORTS OF CALL St. Maartin - first time there. Will definitely go back. Check out Kay’s Jewelers. Can easily walk from cruise port to downtown. San Juan - love shopping in this town. Low pressure and you can walk to shops easily. Labadee - beautiful location. Unfortunately Artisan Village isn’t thought out well. Food is mediocre. Pressure for tipping and up sell for everything - have mindset of Jamaica or Nassau even though it’s RCLs port.

Beautiful ship, great service, food mediocre

SHIP

Layout is interesting and fun atmosphere. Feels like a small city on the seas.

ROOM

Interior stateroom was small but still comfortable.

MAIN DINING

Service is great. Everything you could expect.

FOOD

Not impressive at all. Maybe you should consider specialty restaurants because there isn’t anything special happening at the buffet or main dining. But if you have to add specialty restaurants to get good food it limits the value of the cruise line.

WALKING TRACK

Loved the space to walk/run while having decent views.

ENTERTAINMENT

Shows were decent but not impressive. Comedy club was worth the time. Skip the big shows in Amber Theater and go to any live music venues at night which are very good. Ice rink on cruise ship is unexpected and crazy! Ice Games was worth seeing.

SOLARIUM

This was beautiful but is not peaceful or quiet. Very noisy with talking and people brining their own battery powered speakers into space to play music.

EMBARKATION

Went pretty quickly. Watch out if you aren’t a RCL member already, you won’t board until shortly before noon.

DISEMBARKATION

Face recognition was a huge time saver. Express checkout was a little slow but still acceptable. Off the ship by 7:30ish.

PORTS OF CALL

St. Maartin - first time there. Will definitely go back. Check out Kay’s Jewelers. Can easily walk from cruise port to downtown.

San Juan - love shopping in this town. Low pressure and you can walk to shops easily.

Labadee - beautiful location. Unfortunately Artisan Village isn’t thought out well. Food is mediocre. Pressure for tipping and up sell for everything - have mindset of Jamaica or Nassau even though it’s RCLs port.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 1V 11273
It was acceptable. Interior is always a little tight but you’re not spending much time there. Bed was comfortable.
