With only the Royal in port, easy to go around loop and park. Check in only slow waiting for security. Once through, it was easy to get on board quickly. Our cabin was ready and all was clean as expected.
The ship is in very good shape, no problems with room or any place we went. Ate in dining room the first night, for some reason they had separated the table for four, so we ate alone. The food was good and no issues. But the next four nights we ate in the buffet. Since we had been on the Coral in October for 18 days, we did not care to eat in the DR with the same dishes we had before. The buffet was really good and lots of selections. Talked to a number of people that travel on other lines, and they all said good things about the ship and food. If anything, some dishes were not real hot when you get back to table. If one loves shrimp, there was sauteed shrimp at lunch and dinner. I liked that the buffet had items not seen before, the avocados with crab were great. The tropical fruits were good too.
Ate one lunch at Alfredo’s Pizza, very good and the eggplant dish was good too.
