Stateroom 6552 very quiet and calm location. Enjoyed the balcony very much! Vandie was our cabin attendant and was awesome! We were close to the elevators too.
We purchased the unlimited dining package. It was great dining at the finer restaurants every night, but were not big sushi or seafood eaters so Hooked and Izumi didn’t really appeal to us. We wished we would have purchased the three day dining package and eight and the regular dining room the other two nights. Jamie’s was our favorite restaurant and we ate there three times. The lemon meringue cheesecake was heavenly. The shortribs & the lasagna was also great.
We enjoyed the solarium area every day and were able to secure a cabana bed almost every time we went out there if we woke up around 7:00 am.
One thing that I didn’t realize before this cruise is that they pre-authorize charges on your card daily so while they take the final balance on the last day of your cruise you’re accruing charges or pre-authorizations every day on your credit card for things like gratuities drinks souvenirs etc.
Our cabin was roomy and bright with the full sliding glass door leading to the balcony. We bid $200 when Royal Caribbean offered us to RoyalUp from an ocean view stateroom to a balcony. We found out 2 days before the cruise that our bid was accepted and we were thrilled!
