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

Fabulous entertainment. The nightly shows in the Royal Theatre were great.Comedy show was funny. Ice skating show was fun.. skaters were very talented. Once Upon A Time was my favorite..singers we’re amazing Food- breakfast was terrible.. lunch was good.. dinner was great! The wait staff in the dining areas were top notch. Room was clean attendant was readily available with a smile for anything we needed. This was our first booking with Royal Caribbean (2 others were with Carnival)and we were not disappointed. The ship seemed to be just the right size.. big enough for a lot of activities and not be worn out from too much walking. Do not really have any complaints but if I just had to have 1 it would be the muster drill.. it took longer than expected and could have been a little more organized. Probably more the passengers fault than the crew. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. Overall Great experience!!

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Clean and quiet. Loved the balcony

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Expected a little more from a Royal Caribbean owned or leased destination. Not really much to do except hang out at the beach. Lucky for us the weather was perfect.. had it been raining there would have been nothing to do. Local venders were pushy and rude


This was our 2nd visit to Jamaica. First time was Ocho Rios and local folks were friendly. This was not our experience in Falmouth. Local vendors and shop owners were pushy and rude. Encountered one nice street vender sitting on the sidewalk. His name was Ira and he was selling wood carvings. Other than Ira.. it isn’t worth getting off of the ship in Falmouth
