Sail Date: Apr 2023
Cabin: Balcony

Really enjoyed the dining options available with Your-Time dining, hope they don't change the ChiBang and Cucina de Capitano to be pay venues. My daughter loved the Big Chicken and I enjoyed the Street Eats. Wish they would extend the Street Eats hours a bit. Balcony cabin a bit smaller than previous ships and bathroom layout not as comfortable, but thank you for the glass shower door! Didn't care for the balcony outdoor configuration where the corner balconies can see the entire balcony and into the cabin of the "tucked-in" balconies. Lots of deck seating options, love the different "neighborhoods" and multiple entertainment venues. Staff was wonderful, as always. Comedians were entertaining, but the musical shows were a bit weird. Casino was an overcrowded zoo--I don't gamble but don't try to walk through deck 7 when ship is at sea. Bolt roller coaster worth a try. Went April 2023 and going back May 2024 different itinerary.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Balcony cabin a bit smaller than previous ships, very tight fit around the corner of the beds. Bathroom layout not as comfortable, but thank you for the glass shower door! Didn't care for the balcony outdoor configuration where the corner balconies can see the entire balcony and into the cabin of the "tucked-in" balconies on the sides of the ship.

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

ATVs were okay, didn't get the beach time we were promised

San Juan

Loved the "Explore San Juan & Pristine Beach" at Royal Sonesta Resort Isla Verde. Nice location, best beach around, Staff very attentive and resort drink/food options very good, not too expensive.

St. Maarten

Finally did my bucket-list Flying Dutchman zip line--been trying to go since being rescheduled several times since 2020. I'm a bit handicapped, but managed okay with "ski lift" and stairs, getting on the actual Flying Dutchman was a bit challenging, but staff was very helpful and had a great ride! Didn't do the other zip lines, as time constraint with Royal Caribbean ship also in port at venue. It is a slow ride up the mountain. Bought the pictures and gift shop nice was nice--no "hard sell".
