We have always cruised with Royal Caribbean and enjoyed all our cruises, but this time I felt I had to write this review.
To begin with, the ship is way too big! You can't get from one end of the ship to the other without changing decks. We have always found our way around on ships by the first day, but this time it took forever! Central Park is a joke! We walked through it one time - nice if you like trees! There were so many people and kids, the lines to go anywhere were super long. And don't do anything out of the ordinary or you will have to pay for it. The royal shop was the smallest I have ever seen on a ship, and nothing there worth buying.
CoCo Cay was a nice island, but it is mainly for young adults and kids; and again, expensive. Rotan was a horrible mess! They are still building the dock and all you see is dirt and construction workers! I must say that Costa Maye was one of the pretties ports we have every been at. Everything you wanted to do was right there, no need to go into town.
Now - Johnny Rockets was a night mare, the staff was slow, the food was bad, and the wait was horrible.
My advice, if going on a cruise, forget this one and go to the next size lower ship; like Freedom or Indepence, a lot better
The caben was nice, a little bit bigger than in the past. Only problem, the speakers in the room and on the balcony did not work. You couldn't hear any of the announcments!
Getting on the ship is so much better now. No long lines, just walk right in!
CoCoCay was a nice port for young adults and kids.
We have been to Cozumel many times, it is always nice
Why we even stopped here, I don't know! They are still building the port and all you saw was dirt and construction workers!
Great stop! Everything you want and need is right there. No need to go into town! very pretty and very nice and clean.
