Excellent 4 day cruise

Nov 18th, 2019

Perfect 4 night cruise. It was fun to be on board Halloween night. We enjoyed the entertainment but wish they would book more musical acts. The last couple of Royal Caribbean cruises have been a bit too heavy on comedians (one who was downright depressing) and jugglers.

We had a great time. The Amplified ship is great! Love the additions. Love that they have sinks as you enter the Windjammer. All staff was nice and friendly.

Helen's First Ever Cruise

Nov 14th, 2019

Overall for such a shorter cruise it was positive. Having been on another cruise line 3 months earlier I had something recent to compare with. Since my traveling partner was a first time cruiser we only saw half of the ship because of taking our time with things. The upstairs buffet had plenty but was not nearly as good as my previous cruise. We went every evening to the main entertainment theater and only one show would I call really good. The others seemed to be very lacking in quality entertainment. We were unable to see the ice show. The quality of of The Key has gone down tremendously from all that was shown on YouTube when it was first introduced. Other than the unl wifi it is probably NOT AS GOOD A Value as when it was first introduced. We had to do most of the work they did in the beginning

My family and I had a wonderful time. It would have been nice to have more included in the price. My last cruise it was really all inclusive ie not have to pay for so many outside of the norm dinning options like sushi, Starbucks etc....
