This has been my second cruise, but my first on Royal Caribbean, and I have to admit that I had a blast on this ship. How can't you like this ship that has an ice skating rink, rock climbing wall, pool, miniature golf, in line skating rink, jogging track, theater, 3 floor dining room, and much, much more! First of all, the food was very good, but the food on Celebrity was a bit better. Next, the entertainment was fabulous, shows every night that were fantastic. The Cruise Comics were also very funny. There is much to do on this ship, and there are many places where you can get food 24 hrs a day! There is also a mall, night club, shuffle board, church, and even a Johnny Rockets!
We did Western Caribbean this time and went to Haiti, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel, MX. All of these ports were great. Haiti is RCI's private island, and has many swimming areas. We did dunn's river falls in Jamaica and was tricky but also a lot of fun. Grand Cayman was my favorite port because I snorkeled with the stingrays and dove in coral reefs, although it rained the whole time. and in Cozumel, there are many places to shop and go on the beach. I recommend going in the water because it was 95 degrees, and that was in November!
The only bad parts of the cruise were that you had to tender in to Haiti and Grand Cayman and it took AT LEAST 45 min. Also the weather was a little rainy and some activities had to be cancelled. Our room was small but nice and the ship was extremely clean. It weighs 140,000 tons and has 15 million dollars of architecture. Otherwise I had a great time and look forward to cruising with Royal Caribbean again soon!
