My Husband and I booked our cruise last summer for our Honeymoon, and we thought it was just absolutely wonderful! It was actually our first cruise as well, so we really didn't know what to expect. Honestly I wouldn't have chosen to do anything else! This truly was the ultimate vacation, and what was really awesome about this vacation was in was all inclusive, and the staff were really nice, and made this a wonderful experience! Royal Caribbean hands down did an awesome job at making everyone feel all at home, and pampered! Especially we told them we were cruising with them for our honeymoon made it all the more, even better experience! We did room service one morning and ordered as nice breakfast and as a bonus from them, they gave us complementary Chocolate dipped Strawberries which i thought added a nice touch.

The food was really good! A little too good because I kept going back for more! :P

We booked the balcony stateroom, and it was really nice! Had lots of space for all of our things, and overall it was spacious and really roomy! The bathroom was a bit small, but oh well, that was too much of a big deal. The balcony was amazing, I highly recommend it!

There were so many things to do on the ship! You could never get bored, there's always so much going on, and definitely something for everyone.

My husband and I made the mistake of only doing one excursion, which we did in Cabo San Lucas. I really wish we did one at every port but we just kind of ventured off in to the cities instead. In Cabo we decided to do a sightseeing excursion which was nice, but wish it would have been more fun. At first they took us on a boat and it was unlimited drinking (which was a definite plus=) and took us around the bay and we got to see the town from the bay view. & then they took us to shore and put our group in to a jeep and took us to a really nice resort and we stayed there for an hour or two. I mean all in all it was nice, I just really wish we would have went snorkeling instead. It was just so beautiful there and we feel like we kind of missed out on some of the other fun activities they had going on. We just really wanted to get in the water mostly. & I think because we were new we didn't know what to expect, and I was just happy to do anything really. I can't remember what the excursion was called but if I were you, I would pick something different. Cabo is just to beautiful to waste it driving around, when you can be a part of it!

The trip overall was just wonderful! My husband and I had such a wonderful time that were just recently booked another cruise to go back! It really was something to remember, and everyone really made this an amazing experience! They really know how to treat there guests well! Thanks Royal Caribbean! ;)
