Food- dinning food was good in buffet are for breakfast and lunch the evening meals in dining room were good! Windjammer seemed to be really short staffed as we always has to ask someone to clean a table for us. Dining room server Mirko was excellent! Nighttime entertainment - I think 2 showtime each night - we didn't attend any. Centrum Entertainment - enjoyable Snack area - only one in the solarium that serves pizza, hotdogs and premade sandwiches where carnival had more options. We paid for the beverage package which included drinks up to $12 and included the coffee bar. If you prebook they said you save about $300! We stopped at St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados. The only excursion we did was in Barbados to snorkel with the sea turtles just beware of cab drivers telling you $10 a person for boat and $15 fare per person to beach - crappy boat and didn't see anything! Pay the extra and go on catamaran in the morning. Everyone that did that enjoyed the excursion! Barbados people were not willing to barter This trip was my husband and myself. I would consider Royal Caribbean again if they had the optional snack areas that we prefer

Cabin Review

Cabin 7589
We always choose an interior room - can't see paying the extra money when we don't spend much time in our room.
