It was my 70th birthday that I wanted to get away from and this cruise would be going to the most beautiful Champagne Bay. We had the top suite and it was fantastic. So much room. There was more than enough hanging space and drawers and the bathroom was a proper bathroom with a bidet, a glass enclosed shower and a spa bath. The amenities were excellent only needed to note a vanity door needed looking at and it was done while we were out in the morning. The living room had a table and chairs big enough for us to dine in when we didn't feel like dressing for diner. Balcony, roomy with chairs and 2 sun loungers. Entertainment was suited in the day time around the pool, for the party goers. Lots of noise and crazy games, loud music and it was part time every day there. The Spa pool area was lovely for a quiet poolside read, gentle music and refreshments. Evening, the ship lacked piano type bars where couples could have a cocktail, listen to softer music suited for that romantic close dancing! The Atrium band and dance area was too much like being in a glass bowl everybody looking down or around at you. Wonderful for those exhibitionist that seem to be on every cruise we've been on. Shows were fine, but we didn't go every night. Disappointed with main dining room seating and staff so we dined mainly at the buffet as it had one one the best we've experienced. The cuisine was excellent, and the staff were absolutely delightful....and enjoyment to dine there. We also used the room service to dine in often. The consiarge room is a great facility for those in that category of suite and to meet other cruisers for pre dinner catch ups and drinks. Over all it was a great cruise and I look forward to my next one in 2017. Thoroughly recommend RCL. Read Less

The ship was great no complaints I've been on a number of cruises it was by far the smoothest,however there's a major problem in the main dining room which is called the Windjammer it is understaffed at times impossible to get seating and when you are lucky enough to find a table it's covered in the previous passengers mess and this is continuous,apart from that it's great but it was by far a minor problem compared to departure at Shanghai . ON arrival at Shanghai we were bundled off in mass from it was absolute chaos passengers were standing in very long queues for an eternity then the same at customs. Then it got around the problem started because they had Chinese dignitaries boarding and to entertain them they wanted to do this in the main theatre where the bulk of the passengers were waiting they didn't give a stuff about the passengers just stampeded them off THe final straw was bedlam finding our luggage it took us 2 hours they just mixed all the numbers together and literally dumped them in the terminal it was open slather there were fights amongst the passengers you can imagine over 4000 fighting to get their luggage and then Chinese security got involved I don't the outcome of that,we had friends email us saying they had to leave there luggage behind so as they could get there flight to Singapore,I didn't mention the ship was delayed for 12 hrs because of fog that was no fault of theirs we only had one day in Shanghai so that was a waste of money we booked in 11pm that night and left the next morning pretty expensive nights sleep, we were the lucky ones thousands lost there connecting flights',through all this there were was no one to offer assistance it was sink or swim.and to top it off it took at least an hour to get a Taxi. I think I would be in a long queue complaining about that voyage,as yet we have had no appollogies from Royal Caribbean they have a lot to answer for. Read Less
