First time have the cruise holiday with my family, chosen the Balcony Room with Sofa Bed and the room size is comfortably accommodate 4 of us. We were so busy everyday with all the onboard activities such as Ripcord by iFly, bumper cars, flowriders and the swimming pools, and NorthStar. We have bought the 3-days Specialty Dining voucher and there is no regret for paying extra on this, although Royals ships have fabulous buffet dining which is inclusive in the package. But still the whole dining experience was wonderful, from the restaurants' ambiance, staff service, food variety and quality, thumb's up! After our first experience with Royal Caribbean, we know that it's very difficult for us to go others cruises as our expectation will be super high and in Asia country, I believe there is not many cruise would be able to beat The Royal standard. Now we are eagerly waiting for the new Oasis ship which hopefully by 2020 it will complete it's construction and come to Singapore soon!

Cabin Review

Cabin 8542
Spacious for a family of four, the children love their sofa bed and especially at night, they can't wait to go back to the cabin, just to find out what towel animal they will get from the service staff. The cupboards are more than enough for 4 of us to nicely arrange our clothing for 5 days cruise. The shower room although is small, but the whole design are very practical and the room lighting are perfect for makeup, not too dim, not too bright.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Penang
    We didn't sign up the land excursion package, indeed we moved around by ourselves to the nearby by walking, to The Esplanade Food Center for Mee Goreng Sotong (fried noodle with octopus) + coconut shaved ice. After that we just cross the street and proceed to the nearby 3D Art Museum for fun photo shooting, Armenian Street for afternoon tea and street painting photo shooting, before we returned to the ship.
