We chose this ship because it was a newer ship and the fantastic reviews. Embarking was quick & easy. Unfortunately the only time of year we are able to go is Spring Break, we expected a lot of families and children on board. What we didn't expect was parents allowing their children to run wild all over the ship day and night. Children were allow to run through the Casino while it was opened. Waiting for an elevator one night at 9:30pm there was a group of boys playing catch in front of the elevators, staff members walked by and said nothing. The pools were very small and could not accommodate the passengers. If you wanted to sit by the pools like a can of sardines in the chairs you had to save your chair early in the morning. The adult only area allowed anyone over the age of 16. By the end of the week the pool decks were disgusting, we were tripping over glasses and stepping on straws. The only smoking area on the ship was on the pool deck which was never cleaned during the day, ashtrays were seldom emptied. Food was minimal not like Royal use to be. The dinner menu in the main dining rooms were the same the entire week expect for 1 different entrée nightly. (The flakey crusted fish was hard as a rock). I would recommend spending the extra for the specialty restaurants, well worth the money. Our cabin steward was very friendly. As for other staff members we had a hard time understanding them, as well as them understanding us. Royals private island Labadee Haiti was a money pit, anything you wanted to do cost extra, renting a water raft to float was $25 for the day, Zip Lining was $135.00, a Roller Coaster ride was $26, the only free thing to do on the island was sit on a beach chair or eat.
