This was our first time sailing this cruise line and I would have to say that value wise I rate it close to the top after 7 cruises. We are looking into a family cruise with grown children and grandchildren with Royal Caribbean in the near future.
Embarkation went extremely smoothly, fast and efficient; the least painful of any cruise we have taken. Disembarkation was good, there was waiting in lines but that is to be expected. The staff on ship were very organized and were not in a hurry to get rid of us as has been our experience on previous cruises.
There is so much to on the ship there really would be no need to leave while in port; for anyone with a family this is much cost effective.
