We chose this Cruise because it Departed from a port near us, was reasonable and we frequently sail with Royal Caribbean. We really liked the Voyager Class ships due and larger due to the smooth sailing and amenities. We always enjoy the Promenade with its shops and cafe'. The staff was very friendly and eager to please, which always makes for a happy cruise. The only comment on the Ship itself is that it could use a litte upgrading in the appointments, ie; furniture, carpets (Room & Public areas). The food was excellent in all areas, entertainment great and varied. The Ports were a bit repetitive but with our many Caribbean cruises that is hard to avoid and some of them tend to look alike and sell the SAME touristy merchandise. But it's still the best way to vacation in our opinion. Unpack once and others "Drive", make your bed, feed you and entertain you. We, however, have a similar complaint with several cruise lines, Royal Caribbean included. They have a tough time adhering to their own rules. They constantly allow passengers to come to the Main Dining room, for Dinner, in Shorts, Wife Beater T-Shirts, flip flops and hats. We have even seen some in Bathing suit cover-ups. We are not saying that they should be dressed formally but come on, it's dinner ! If you prefer to dress sloppy go to the Buffet which is very casual. When we mention this to Dining Room senior staff they tell us Management instructs them to advise guests of the dress policy but to allow them to be seated anyway. We object to this as it changes the atmosphere of the dining room dramatically.

Great Ship-Needs a little TLC

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 4V 9329
Nice but dated furniture and carpet. A little soiled due to the age. Plenty of storage space, but we always bring strong magnets to use Metal walls to hang extra clothing and dry bathing suits. Beds and mattress' are great, A/C wonderful, and we sleep soundly in the inside rooms.
