Lets just say we have been on holidays all over the world and enjoyed many years of traveling, but never before have we ever experienced anything like it, it was out of this world, from stepping on the ship to going home it was amazing.Every day was filled with superb locations and on board the ship from dining to entertainment you were spoiled by such attentiveness and service.

Where do i begin, at the beginning ! On our first night we went to the restaurant, we were greeted by our waiters. Our waiter was Elmer form the Philippines and our assistant waiter was from Serbia, they waited on our family every night and made our holiday complete. The food was delicous, lots of choice every night. The menu was well explained every night and being a chef i always had lots of questions which were always answered. They both made us look forward to dinner time, thank you both for all you did for us, we loved having you as our waiters.

Very comfortable and always kept immaculately clean by our housekeeper Henri. The balcony for me was a bonus and i loved sitting out and taking in the views or just watching the waves. The room was spacious and the shower room was more than adequate for what you need. Look out for towels in disguise as animals ! Henri worked very hard and there was nothing that was too much trouble for him.

We enjoyed the shows and would say that the ice show and the Bee Gees night were our favourites. There was always something to do for every age group more or less 24 hours a day. By the pool we enjoyed the singers every day and my daughter enjoyed the childrens club.

We went on 2 tours and would reccomend them highly for people that prefer going with a guide. The trip to Rome was great as it was a panaramic tour so in the 42 degree heat you were able to see all the sights and sit in a very comfortable air conditioned bus. Also there was time to grab an italian pizza and ice cream, what could be better. The day in Pisa again was great, you got picked up by bus then taken to a little boat, which served free ice creams, then on a raod train right into the centre of Pisa, we then were taken to a little cafe for cool drinks and nibbles, then had plenty of time to look round the market stalls and see a very odd building that happens to lean ! The day in Corsica we went by ourselves, the ship docks right by the village (whereas to go to Pisa and Rome its a good hour away ) so within 2 minutes walking you are there. Its a lovely wee village with a market, plenty of cafe, shops and souvenir shops.

Not a day has gone by since we got home that we don't miss being on board. We loved the whole experience, from waking and then going off to explore another city to looking forward to dinner with our waiters. We already have the 2012 brochures, so lets hope there is another review on here soon ! Thank you Royal Caribbean for a memory we will never forget.
