Sail Date: Dec 2021

This was my 6th cruise overall and second with Royal Caribbean and most likely my last with them. When I say this ship was focused on the older crown I mean there was next to nothing for two people traveling in their 20's to do on board. Hardly any activities, no good shows, no music, top deck by the pool was an absolute dead zone. Overall I was looking for a relaxing vacation which was easy to accomplish here because of the lack of things to do on board. Dining food each night was great along with all the staff associated with it. Buffet food was decent for breakfast and lunch. Covid protocols were a huge headache to deal with. Before we booked this cruise I called Royal Caribbean multiple times and asked tons of questions about mask wearing on the ship and other things, only to find out the complete opposite once on board. I could sit at my dinner table with complete strangers and play black jack elbow to elbow with 8 other people mask free, but every time I stepped in a hallway I was hounded by employees to put my mask on when there was no one else around. Just overall and huge aggravation to go along with the let down of the actual cruise.

We booked the private beach and all inclusive drink excursion and had a great time. Beach was beautiful and the staff was great.
