This was our fourth cruise... 2 previous cruises with Carnival, one with Princess, and one cruise with Costa. There were four of us... husband, myself, and two kids.
Food... Some of the best food we have ever eaten. The best on a cruise ship so far. The food was beyond our expectations. Our waitress told us Royal Caribbean statred a new menu and new selections two weeks before our seeting. Buffet had many choices, and dining room food and service for lunch and dinner was great.
Stateroom... We started out with an oceanview stateroom on deck two. VERY SMALL. We upgraded to a delux balcony, and were impressed. The balcony and larger room was well worth it. The balcony was nice to have and sit on, adn the extra room was nice for relaxing in the cabin. After the upgrade, everything went well.
Entertainment... the poolside band was unbelieveable! Played all types of songs. Great singers, and really allowed us to feel stress free. The cruise director Bcky Thompson also went out of her way. Extremely funny and talented person, who seems to enjoy her job. Casey the activities cordinator "Bingo Man" also was funny and worked with Becky to make everyones cruise even better. Poolside entertainment was great. The ice show was the best show we have ever seen. New costume every three seconds... some magic... wow! Shows were pretty good... always something to do! The golf and rock wall were great. The comedians were funny.
The ice cream was a great extra. 24 hour ice cream was great to top off a meal. The midnight buffet was good, and the lobster was a hit! LIked the dining entertainment and towel animals. We were nto once able to tell we were on a ship. Not one bit of movement felt by anyone! The cafe was a great place for good snacks.
Overall this was our best trip ever! There is not one negative, and not one thing I can correct. I would not have ever asked for a better vacation. Can't wait for our next cruise Royal Caribbean! Any questions... feel free to email me.
