Sail Date: Sep 2021
Cabin: Grand Suite - 1 Bedroom

We chose this cruise for the itinerary (Cozumel, Honduras, Costa Maya and Coco Cay). We had no idea what a beautiful ship we would be on. We did the ROyal up, with a minimum bid and "won" a suite. It was incredible. Amazing bathroom and balcony. The "living room" was tiny adn there were only two of us so we really didnt use it. The Lavazza coffee machine was amazing. (like amazing!)

The crew were so happy to be cruising again. They were all so nice, funny, welcoming. The covid protocols were great. I was really nervous and we didnt decide that we were actually going to cruise until two days before because of my fear of the Delta variant. We tested on a wend. for a saturday departure. We arrived at the port and a porter helped us with new luggage tags due to the upgrade. We waited about ten minutes and showed our vaccination card, test results, id and were given a white plastic bracelet to show we were vaccinated. (Everyone over 12 had to be on this sailing due to requirements of the Bahamas. Thank you Bahamas!). After that we went to the holding area to wait for our paperwork to be recheckec. Then we boarded. The whole experience was about a half hour.

They were constantly cleaning the ship and I felt very comfortable and safe. All the guests were very compliant about mask wearing indoors. It's optional at the show on the "vaccinated floor" but i would guess about 50/50 wore masks.
