Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View Stateroom

The price of this cruise was unbeatable. We had cruised this ship 2 years ago to Cuba and loved the size and intimacy of this ship. It is very well maintained and very easy to find your way around. Unfortunately the price also attracted a lot of families. The size if the ship left no where to get away from the kids. They were EVERY WHERE!! Wat too small of a ship and not enough to do for that many kids! Could not get any where near the pool or hot tubs. Teenagers played their own loud music on sunning decks and were not cooperative when asked to turn it down. The staff did an excellent job putting on a nice Thanksgiving celebration. If anyone should go to Grand Caymans I would avoid the excusion touring the island. We spent 5 hrs inside a van viewing schools, churches, houses, banks....everything we could see at home and literally nothing of the beauty of the island. Loved Labadee Haiti. RC has done a fabulous job creating a tropical paradise for their cruisers. Wish we could have spent more time there.
