As our trip to Florida got cancelled again and I didn't want to fly due to all the tests and paperwork involved we did this 7 night uk trip. My son and I had a great time from bumper car driving to iflying. Great modern ship (have done other Royal Caribbean ships but smaller ones). No sea sickness even though I'm generally a bad traveller and it was a bit rocky at times so I put that down to great stabilisers on the ship maybe? Entertainment so much better than I expected. Food in the main restaurant and Windjammer could still be better quality - it does seem to be quantity over quality unfortunately. Egg shell in the breakfast scrambled egg as well which was a put off. My most biggest bug bear with all the Royal Caribbean ships I have sailed on is the sticky tables in the Windjammer - why are they sticky? I just presumed they were not cleaning the cloths enough which I found disgusting and even more so in covid times. That said my son and I did have a great time and seeing a bit of Liverpool, Belfast and some of the Scotland lochs was lovely. It was my 4th Royal Caribbean cruise and I do wish to sail with them again but please, PLEASE, can they clean their tables properly - I just don't want to come across another sticky one again!

Cabin Review

Ocean View with Large Balcony

Lovely large balcony and my son had an inside. Modern, clean, tea and coffee (I did bring my own milk on board but maybe some could have been provided for me). TV with some free movies and you can check your account on it.

Port Reviews

Belfast

Loved the Titanic museum!

Greenock (Glasgow)

Not too long on the coach. Went around a few lochs and it was beautiful.

Liverpool

Easy to walk to the Albert Dock and John Lewis!
