We chose to cruise on Royal Caribbean since we've been on Holland America for our first two cruises and wanted to branch out for our first trip to the Caribbean. The Entertainment on board was very good - although, I'm still scratching my head to why Cats would be a headliner on a cruise ship especially since half the crowd left during intermission. The gym/exercise amenities were great - lots of treadmills, weights, etc. Spa was great - we very much love the heated loungers. It did strike us that the ship was showing some signs of age, i.e. some spots looked like they need cleaning/re-painting. My biggest complaint, though, was we kept getting charged for drinks we never ordered and couldn't block them out - we had to report to Guest Services three times, but they did refund it every time it happened. Second complaint, the Windjammer food seemed "greasy" and understaffed. Once we realized we could use the Solarium, we stuck to that and food was good for us. The experience could definitely improve significantly with the Windjammer.

Great entertainment, good for a family cruise, Windjammer could use improvement

Cabin Review

Cabin 12138
We had an Oceanview, Port Side, the balcony had a small table, and two chairs - was nice to have, but we didn't have great weather the whole time for being on the balcony. We were still able to make good use of it. Stateroom attendants have always been friendly for us. Room size seemed appropriate for being on a cruise ship. The shower is super small, and the counter space is pretty limited. Couch was showing signs of age. Bedding is average - two beds put together with a mattress pad put over the top.
