Sail Date: Aug 2022

Booked this cruise because the date worked for us.Started with RC losing our bus transfer. Sat at airport for 2 hours waiting for the bus once they figured it out. Had no idea how big this boat was. Room 14708. Terrible! Under the basketball court. Thump all Day. Worst bed We've ever slept in. Rock hard, like sleeping in a hole. Room was beautiful. Room steward Hernaldo was exceptional! Great storage, very nice bathroom. No hair conditioners available on this boat so pack it. As policy, RC, turns off the a/c between 2 and 6 am. Elevators are not air conditioned. This was verified by employees. Rooms get very warm. Dining room stops breakfast at 930am. No sea day brunch. Buffet not big enough for everybody to eat at. Announcement being made to eat and get out! Food at buffet was very good. Everything is done via WiFi. Getting onboard the wifi was not working. Could not book shows meal time etc. Book comedy shows first! Bar staff is not allowed to change tv to the game the folks may want to watch. FS1 only channel. Takes about 30 min to get into dining room once you have a dining time. Go to deck 3. Book your dining time for the week there. Food was very good. As a whole, it appeared that RC was not ready for 6500 people. If you like big crowds long lines, this boat is for you. If not, take a smaller boat. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed our cruise we are just very doubtful about cruising this big of a ship in the future.very. Nice fitness center and walking running track on deck 5.

Cabin Review

Nice cabin, good storage, nice sized shower and bath. Beds are the worst. Ladies there is soap shampoo combo, but no hair conditioner.

Port Reviews

Perfect Day at CocoCay

Beautiful island, food was excellent. Drinks were a bit week so drink beer. Plenty of chairs and space to chill out. Did not pay for water park, had no reason to go. There is a small shopping area if you want t-shirts etc... these stands take your sail card.
