My family and I just got back. Very nice ship, and we've been on a lot of RCCL cruises. This one really is like a floating city. We liked the shows and most of the food. But we thought it would be smooth sailing because there were no storms or rough waters, but the ship rocked the whole time and it was really rough. My daughter threw-up twice. I can't understand why it was like that. This is my 5th cruise and even when we were skirting a storm last year on a different RCCL ship, it wasn't nearly this rough. There was a rumor going around that it was the Captain's fault. Something about he wasn't using the stabilizers. Many cruisers were talking about this and were very upset, it wasn't just us. This cruise was very expensive and if it had been smoother sailing we would have had a much better time.

Very good food, lots of choices.

Very nice cabin and big enough.

Lots to do as far as activities, that's for sure, but we missed a lot.

Didn't do any excursions - we were on our own schedule.

Again, this is a very nice ship but after swaying back and forth for a week I think it must be one of the poorest built. Or maybe it's true the the Captain was making it sway more than it had to be. I'm glad to be on solid ground and will not cruise on this ship again.
