Was lots more than I expected!

Dec 10th, 2018

The cabin was an accessible wheelchair room, extra big bathroom with floor to ceiling and wall to wall windows 5 in all, very beautiful. The windjammer was filled with everything you could possibly eat and more, orange, lemon juices and tea or other kinds of drinks. The dinning room was beautiful with chandaliers and the waiters you can only find on a ship, they always remembered our names and nesecities, they showed us magic tricks and were very curtious. The people at the front desk helped with a problem we had and one of the ladies gave my grandson coins from different places. The shows in the theater were great and the ice show too. my grandson rode the flowrider and loved it, he tired us out as he didn't want to leave. He also played basketball and golf, very nice date to go as there weren't many kids. Sitting by the pool or getting fresh cool air on deck 14 was great. we also enjoyed the jackuzzi, very hot but releives pain in your legs and back from walking on the islands. The islands were great too but I didn't particularly like "Crown Bay" at St. Thomas because I wanted to go to Paradise Point but It wasn't possible "this trip" I will be going back. (God permitting). WE HAD A GREAT TRIP AND GREAT TIME 8 adults one in wheelchair and a 11 yr. old boy.

This was my 5 cruise, trying to find the perfect shipsize as a solo traveler. Feel like little red riding hood. Freedom is just right. All personal opinion, Vision and Majesty were too small. Allure and Harmony also super fun especially with a group many diverse activities. Next up Navigator.

This was our 8th cruise, 3rd on Royal Caribbean. Although the ship is showing her age, it was very clean. Food was good. We purchased the drink package and wifi combo. Next time no wifi...it was constantly down. Personnel on the ship was excellent. We did a shore excursion on our own in St Kitts and went to Reggae Beach Bar..so fun! Our excursion in Antigua was cancelled due to lack of participation so we just walked around but with 4 ships in port, it was crazy crowded. Another non ship tour in St Lucia to a beach between the pitons. Very beautiful but very crowded because other tours stop there all day long. Did not get off the ship in Barbatos. Did St Maarten on our own, shuttle to Maho Beach to see the planes and then headed to Blue Bitch Bar beach. Water was excellent, beers were cold. $10 for bucket of beer. All in all it was a great trip with the exception of the number of rude passengers all over the ship, altercations at the pool on a daily basis...not us, what we witnessed. Groups of teens running in to passengers on purpose, blatant disregard for people's personal space and passengers filling beach bags at buffet with everything that want nailed down. Don't get me wrong, overall we had a great time but I would not leave from that port again.

Relaxing, fun, loud, delicious

The trip was wonderful, but it seemed as though a lot was geared toward the Latino passengers. I love the culture and language, but there are other passengers on board as well.

Mediocre at best. Johnny Rockets was a colossal rip off way too expensive for a cruise that highlights free food

We really enjoyed the solarium, there are always plenty of seats. The hot tub was wonderful the adults only swimming pool was lovely. The food was mediocre our room steward was the best, our room was the best
