Super large ship, very smooth ride, had to go on deck to know you were moving. Food in every day dinning was always good and fresh and the only dinning facility that required you to wash your hands. Ate at Chops specialty dinning and the steak was very tough and hard to cut. The table next to us also had the same experience so not a one off meal. We did learn that once you book your trip, download the app and review every tab and sub tab to learn what is available on your cruise. You have to make a reservation for just about every show, very few you could walk up and enjoy. There are a small number of shops and have very odd hours they are open and had limited selection which maybe by design. We found the casino was very smoky and needs more ventilation to cycle the air which stopped us from spending any time or money. Again, nice ship, enjoyed the ports of call.

Let me just qualify my review by saying I have a drink or two every couple of weeks. I started my cruise by ordering a Bourbon and Coke. Tasted like pure coke. Moved to Long Island Teas. 15 in total. NO BUZZ at all. Liquor is watered down. My wife is a 3 drink max and she's done. On Margarita number 8 I knew she was just drinking margarita mix. You Can't order a double shot of anything. Only 1 shot at a time and you can only order drinks every 15 minuets. for a drink package that cost over $400. it is not worth it.

I went on a cruise with my two adult children. It was a wonderful time. Our first cruise. PROS: Great service, an army of people did their best to make use happy and clean up after us. A few times I had to visit guest services, they bent over backwards to help us. Entertainment was the best part. We saw a lot of shows and they were all impressive. Food was very good, a tiny notch below other all-inclusive resorts we've been to, but after all we were on a boat, so understandable. Specialty restaurants were worth the extra fees but not totally necessary if you want to save some bucks. We had the deluxe beverage package, there were many options for beer, wine, and top shelf liquor. We used the fitness center and the spa. It was a bit crowded at peak hours, but this is to be expected. They had a well written phone app that was very helpful, it was easy to make reservations and see your schedule for the day. It surprised me that on a cruise ship I was still getting 15K to 20K steps each day on my Fitbit, there is quite a bit to see and explore. The ship is very well laid out. I expected to get seasick. I did not. You can feel slight movement on a ship this big, but it was manageable. CONS: We had one bad restaurant experience, at Sabor (Mexican). An appetizer was poorly prepared, the waiter asked about it, we were honest. Then the entrees were mediocre at best. I also had to go to the bar to get a drink refill. I'm sure staffing is an issue everywhere, but this was the only place it happened. We decided to get desert at the ice cream shop next store, when we were there the manager came in concerned that we didn't finish our meal. He offered to buy us the ice cream, we thanked him, but somehow, we were still billed for the ice cream. It was one bad meal, but it stood out on our cruise, so I felt the need to mention it. Then later on the cruise we were at movie night, and I dropped in to Sabor for a drink refill since it was the closest bar to the theatre, the bartender ignored me for 10 minutes, serving waiter's orders, so I walked out. A tropical storm caused us to re-route and miss a stop, on Curacao. But we got an extra day at Labadee to compensate. So not terrible. I saw one dealer bark at gamblers at our poker table, all staff are still wearing masks and he had a thick accent and was hard to understand. The only time I saw a staff member being unpleasant. We had adjoining rooms; the housekeeper opened a partition between our balconies. The first night I heard something repeatedly rattling/banging in the wind. It turned out to be the balcony partitions, although they were locked in place, they no longer had a tight fit. The housekeeper said to wedge something in the latch, so I folded up some paper and jammed it in and this fixed the problem. I know the boat is due for a refit, but this could be fixed by them easily with some foam rubber and glue. We paid top dollar for internet "streaming". Turns out they only guarantee 1 MBPS. So not really streaming. Was also very unreliable. there have been satellite technologies available for 20 years that could correct this. I wish the pools were bigger. But there was a lot of room and lounge chairs. Prices included prepaid "gratuities", but I really got the feeling I should be tipping drinks, it was appreciated when I did it but I didn't see anyone else doing it. I also tipped our main dining room waiter and housekeeper at the end of the week. They did a great job and deserved it, and this was encouraged, an empty envelope appeared in our cabin at the end of the week for this purpose. But then you have to consider the prepaid gratuities are just a way to increase the price without increasing the price. CONCLUSION: It was a great vacation, and I would book Royal Caribbean again.

Best part of the trip was the food, and the CLEAN areas of the ship. EVERYWHERE was clean. We loved it.
