So much to do! Food is Fantastic! Debarked our is Port Canaveral, FL. All of the Staff are Fantastic!!!!! Sport deck is absolutely wonderfully!! The kids daycare/play area is amazing and I don’t even have kids but wish I was one!!! The adults only areas are very nice to get away from the chaos at times. LOL Will definitely Cruise with RC again in the near future. Thank you for such wonderful hospitality and service! Tammy & Kenzie

This was my first cruise. Loved the staff and loved my waiter Bojan. Now I am hooked on cruising. I really enjoy this size of ship.

Cruise was not enjoyable

We were disappointed in this cruise. From food to entertainment, this cruise was at the bottom of the list of cruises we have been on.

Great for first time cruise and i wish there was something for my infant to do other than walk around. I wished there was more for my 5 year old to enjoy.

Enjoyed but did not live up to expectations

Jul 14th, 2019

We had purchased the Keys program as an upgrade for our trip. Overall I guess it was worth it but again the internet package was a total hassle. The keys was disappointing for the special hours for the activities like the flow rider. Our teenage sons were 2 of 4 key members that showed up for the special keys member hour on the flow rider so the attendants working the flowrider opened it up to the rest of the ship. My kids felt ripped off because what was the point of having a special hour for keys members if you are not going to honor it. Buyer beware on that add on. Room service was a disappointment the entire trip. One morning when we were in port for Bahamas we ordered room service and it never came. The next morning our order was incomplete and when we asked about it we were advised they ran out of some of the items. Lack of communication was a big issue. Overall we still had a good trip it just would have been nice to not have had some of the frustrations we experienced.
