This was our 9th cruise on Royal; and if it had been our first, there wouldn't have been a second. Embarkation was fast and efficient. Unfortunately that was the highlight of the cruise. Didn't care for the fact that there is no pool in the solarium. Boring shows, except for headliner Tony Tillman, complimented boring breakfast, lunch and dinners in the MDR. Why is the nearest bar to the MDR 2 floors away? It seemed odd that the piano player at the Schooner Bar used a bass and drum backing track to accompany him. At least he didn't have a backing choir track. Terribly crowded elevators, but we always used the stairs. More trinkets than usual for sale in the promenade. The guacamole making class at Sabors was a disappointment; but it was a nice lunch. Always found a chair on the pool deck; that was a nice surprise. The classical guitarist in Central Park was quite good as well as the traveling piano player. Janice in housekeeping, Suparlan and Bohari in the dining room were all superior. So was the rhum tour at Topper's in St. Maarten!

Cabin Review

Central Park View Balcony
Cabin 1J
Very clean, thanks to Janice. Liked having 2 closets with plenty of hangers. Night light in bathroom is a great idea. Much louder than a similar cabin on Oasis...lots of late night noise from the pool area filtering down. Sliding glass door whistled...couldn't name the tune.
