RCCL is focusing all their attention on their new, huge ships, 6,000+ passengers. More money, less crew members, less food, less entertainment, less service. Everything extra cost, most a big cost. Nothing is given as an extra when you book a cruise, no free crew appreciation, no drink packages, no onboard credit but the prices are the same as other cruise lines that give you extras.

This cruise was a gift to my grandson and his wife, he has cruised several times but she never has. I booked them a Promenade Interior, I wanted them to be able to see something. I was in an Accessible Oceanview, Deck 2. I never book that low on decks but that was all I was offered 9 months ago when I booked. I am a seasoned cruiser with either 59 or 60 cruises completed. Before the Pandemic RCCL and Princess were my go-to cruise lines. I am a Diamond Plus member which doesn’t count for anything.

The good points of the cruise (there were few) were embarkation was a breeze. From entering the Galveston port terminal to the ship was right at 11 minutes and I was using a scooter. Debarkation was the same, ship to my shuttle bus was right at 15 minutes with picking up luggage. I purchased the KEY CARD for my grandson at $259 and it was worth the money. They used it all 5 days. You can lookup the benefits at RCCL.com. I never purchase photos but they did and the photographers were amazing. The price was ridiculous. The Comedian was good.

Cabin Review

I had an Accessible Oceanview. The cabin was old and dated with spots on the rug, several chips in the sink and toilet, paper pulling off the walls, a feeling of no one cares about the cabin.

Port Reviews

Costa Maya

Absolutely nothing there but some hastily constructed shops selling cheap native items.


Cozumel is beautiful. Everyone needs to see it once.
