RCL obviously knew people would be skeptical about the size. Our room was great, and we had a regular rooom! You walk in and the bath is on the left - bigger than usual, the bed (VERY COMFORTABLE) in front, followed by a cozy couch and desk - if we felt lazy, sometimes we snuggled down and watched TV! - nice balcony overlooking Central Park. The "communities" are so well-designed and separated, so you can enjoy each one and yet easily move on, when you want. You forget you are on a ship, as you sit in Central Park, surrounded by trees and flowers, hearing the birds sing! It was a wonderful design to have the center of the ship open to the sky, yet you can stroll the Promenade beneath a glass ceiling, so if there happens to be a bit of rain, it doesn't stop the fun! We loved going to the kids area as they had so much going on. It is done top notch, by the way - the teen center and hangout is cool! The water sports are so amazing that you want to go to watch, even if you don't do any of them. The first day, we dozed in the wonderful swivel chairs in the adult solarium (a great feature for when you want adult time), watching the ocean. Then, refreshed we had to ride the marry-go-round - the Boardwalk is so much fun! The shows are great (except the comedians - need new ones, please!)! The spa and fitness center was very nice, but watch out in the fitness center - the floor is not all one level and you can trip by some of the machines. The food was wonderful - we did anytime seating - we never had to wait and no matter where we went, they knew we were honeymooners and we got our own table! The restaurants on the ship were really good, but we did only one - the Italian (Giovanni's) for Christmas, which was great!. We did only one because the dining food was really good! The buffet was nice, except breakfast needs to be taken up a notch; not bad, but not great. Getting off for excursions was so easy! Get into the elevator and push the yellow button. When the doors open, you turn and go off the ship! There is no finding out how to get to the other end of the ship - from any point, you go all the way to the left or right, by the rooms, and go all the way down the halls to the other side - sometimes it is fastest! They need new photographers - the lighting was awful and the poses standard. We were disappointed and didn't buy any. The staff is great. A well-thought out ship - so much to do, yet doesn't feel busy and overwhelming; if you want quiet time, it is easy to find. I highly recommend it. It is a lot of people, but RCL knew it would be and ensured their ship design allowed for it. When we sat in our favorite lounge (Viking Crown) at the top of the ship, it was cozy, quiet, and intimate and we knew it was the best choice for our honeymoon!

Cabin Review

Cabin
Bigger than we have had on other ships. Nicely laid out - "living room" area (couch and desk) separated nicely from the bed, so we could sit comfortably and watch TV. Nice balcony. Bathroom not big, but bigger than most. Very comfortable. Bed was fantastic - I slept like a baby! TV reception was better than other ships. They had old movies and TV shows to watch, if you were tired and wanted to rest in your room.
