Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

My husband and I decided to go on this cruise for our honeymoon. What an absolute awful experience. We have both been on several other cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruises as well and we both loved them so we figured this would be a perfect choice for our honey moon.

We sailed out of Bayonne and getting on the ship was a breeze since we purchased The Key, if we hadn’t I’m sure it would have been an awful experience because when we arrived at 10:30am there was a ton of people waiting to board (even though our boarding passes said to arrive between 12:30-1pm, we decided to get there earlier)

We had a balcony room and our room was dirty. The bathroom at times smelled like a port a potty. Our stateroom attendant seemed very overwhelmed and sometimes didn’t “clean” our room while we were out for breakfast and dinner so we would have to find her and ask her to make the bed. The beds are extremely extremely uncomfortable. After the second night my back was in agony.

Awful. Unclean, smelled like a port a potty and our service attendant took forever to make up our room. We had to find her to ask her to make up the bed and leave our room so she could do it. She never cleaned the shower or bathroom while we were there or replaced the toilet paper. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and there’s literally nothing on tv. Most of the channels didn’t work except for their channels and to rent a movie cost $11.99- insane! You can rent a movie on tv at home for under $5. Such a rip off.

Port Reviews

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

Nothing to do here except go to Disney or Kennedy. Ended up going to cocoa beach, which was ok. Wish they went the Florida keys or Miami instead.

Perfect Day at CocoCay

Loved this place!


Loved it!
