Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

The ship was not our choice, we were in a group and the organizer always uses Royal,.

Embarkation was fast and easy aside from sitting in the terminal waiting to board.

Self -assist off the ship was quick and easy, 15 minutes or less from the time we started till we were outside.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

The cabin was quite nice. The bed was by the balcony and the balcony was huge because the cabin was on the "hump."

Far more storage than we needed.

The round shower felt cramped for two big guys.

TV had few channels but who cared?

Biggest complaint was that there was an electrical outlet on only one side of the bed so we had to have the steward put an extension cord in so we could both use cpap machines. A new ship should've had one on each side. The steward never taped the cord down on the floor- the first time it was not automatically done by a stared.

The steward was inconsistent: there were 2 glasses in the bathroom at the start but along the way only one was placed in there. We saw that other cabins had a box of tissue but never us.

Port Reviews

Perfect Day at CocoCay

Took the trolley car around the island, saw a nice spot to hang out at a bar and stayed for a few hours.
