we were visiting friends in Tampa so decided to tack on this five day cruise. The only hassle was the requirement of a covid rapid test since CDC required that it be done within 2 days of sailing. But we got it done.
We are Diamond plus members but also have cruised on Norwegian, Carnival, Princess and Holland America, including a 7 day on the Carnival Pride out of Baltimore at the end of October, 3 weeks before the RCI cruise.
Royal Caribbean is still our favorite. We had a Balcony cabin since the price was promotional and exceptionally low. In the Caribbean we mainly do inside Cabins since the cabin is to sleep and change and the overwhelming majority of time is spent outside the cabin.
