We booked this cruise at the last minute and didn't have a lot of high expectations but we were pleasantly surprised by this cruise and the ship. The ship is definitely smaller however it was more than adequate for what we needed. We are a middle aged professional couple and we found the activities and the pace on this ship to be pretty good. The embarkation was fairly smooth. Fort Lauderdale isn't the nicest port to leave from but getting on board was very efficient and the port staff were super friendly. The first day dining at the WindJammer Cafe was a total mess as there was a huge line up to get in and a lot of people didn't get fed. Not sure how Royal Caribbean could mess this one up. Other than this initial faux pas the dining for the rest of the cruise went well. We had set dining for 8pm and the food and dining room staff were fantastic every night. There are limited choices for bars on the ship and Boleros was closed for a private function one night which was discouraging. Not sure what they were thinking on this one. There were not too many children on the ship but the ones that we did see were generally well behaved. There were only a few pools and hot tubs on the ship so we took advantage during port days. The service on the ship was fantastic with one exception. The idiots that gave out the towels by the pool need serious lessons in customer service. We dealt with 2 different people on 2 different occasions and they were both very rude and horrible. One of these morons actually screwed up and they tried to charge me $50 for a lost towel. Needless to say I didn't pay it and I have lodged a complaint with RC about this. I mean, how hard is it to do a good job at handing out towels. We stopped at 2 ports on this trip - Costa Maya and Cozumel. We have been to Costa Maya before and didn't bother wasting our time going on shore here. Cozumel was OK but the aggressive vendors wore us down after a while and we headed back to the ship for some peace and quiet. They had Starbucks coffee on board and we found the cafe to be very friendly and efficient. We patronized it several times during the cruise and they always did a good job. Getting off the ship was fairly stress free. Unfortuantely we travelled through the Fort Lauderdale Airport which was a horrendous experience. The next time we will go through Miami.

Surprisingly Good

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 2N 2034
We only had an Oceanview room - we are used to having a balcony but we found this room to be surprisingly functional and it met our needs. Not sure we would want to stay in this room for a 7 day cruise but for 5 days it was fine. Our room porter was great. He was very efficient and super friendly.

The cabin was a bit noisy on the final night - we figured that they were loading the luggage just below us. Other than that it was fairly quiet. It was very close to the disembarkation door on floor 1 and we rarely needed to use the elevator as the Centrum was only a couple of floors up and close.
