We chose this cruise for our children and grandchildren. Our stop into San Juan was cut short (this was before all the problems). We only had a few hours there. Then, we never ported at their private island because of a medical problem that forced us to return to San Juan. Most ships can airlift someone off; don't know why RC did not do this. Our best port, the private island, was eliminated and we just sailed slowly back to Ft. Lauderdale. What a disappointment for the kids...no zipline, roller coaster, and ocean experiences. I wrote my disappointment to RC and got a canned response that they can change ports whenever! I think they could have given us a refund, free movies, drinks, something for our inconvenience!! Nothing!! We are gold members, but will return to Norwegian and Carnival in the future. The cabin steward and our waiters were top notch. Our balcony was large enough for the 3 of us. The movie screen was totally underutilized. We saw 3 movies on it; one was a documentary on Apollo 11....no one stayed to watch that!! I relayed my disappointment about movie choices and the fact that this could have been used day and night when there was no diving show. The diving show and the ice skating show were excellent!! Needless to say, we will not be traveling on RC in the near future. The kids and grandkids liked Carnival's food better with Guy's Burgers and BBQ.

Shortened one port and didn't go to private island
