This was our first cruise. It was an amazing experience for my wife and me! Overall, the entire staff was very accomodating and hospitable. We could not have asked for better service. The cruise was way beyond our expectations.

We dined primarily at the Windjammer Cafe because it fit our schedule regarding activities. The food was delectable. The selection of fruits, veggies, meats, pasta, etcetera was great. Also, late evening snacks at the Promenade Cafe were so worth it; the sandwiches were delish! We drank a variety of hot tea beverages...so good!

Our stateroom attendant Claudiu was very attentive to our needs. He made us feel "at home" and checked on us regularly to make sure that we were enjoying our vacation as well. He was very diligent regarding his assigned tasks.

There were so many activities to participate in, but not enough time to enjoy them all! We truly enjoyed the entertainment at the Metropolis every evening; the singers, musicians, dancers, comedians, and the Cruise Director Mike were the best! The ice skating show in Studio B was so amazing.

In Labadee, Haiti, we took a cultural tour. It was the first time that we had taken a water taxi. The tour guide gave us the history of Haiti as we traveled along the way. When we arrived on land, we were welcomed with a complimentary rum punch. We had the privilege of learning how the natives build their homes, prepare foods, and artistically create crafts. In Falmouth, Jamaica, we were warmly greeted by the natives as we arrived on their land--the marching band, the dancers, etc. We also took a cultural excursion called the Outameni Experience via an air-conditioned tour bus to learn more about the history and culture of its people. The Outameni Experience tour was phenomenal! The sampling of the cuisine was the best part! Don't miss the cultural tours! One can learn so much about the various ethnic groups that make up the beautiful islands of Labadee and Falmouth.

Overall, we had a fantastic vacation cruising on RCCL. We are making plans to take our second cruise already!
