Nice ship, rooms, excellent trip overall, April 28, 2016
Reviewer: captfred34

Pros: Really enjoyed the ship, it was impressive

Cons: Rude passengers and a few stupid staff members but that's expected

Departure port: Ft. lauderdale

Region visited: Caribbean - Eastern

Cabin category: Jr. Suite

Cabin number: 9272

It was a great cruise, needed a wheelchair for boarding which took too long, on ship early, room not ready until 1 p.m., junior suite was great!

Overall food was good to excellent, Chops Grille not worth the money. It was included for us our friends paid for their meal, Princess charges $10 less and the food is much better.

Most of the staff was excellent, entertainment good to great, disembarkation crazy! Half the passengers carried their bags off early, they were great getting us off in the wheelchair, try to not get hurt two weeks before your cruise if possible :((

Overall experience very good: Watch out for Soot!, November 13, 2015
Reviewer: suzeshoes

Pros: Well maintained, large ship

Cons: Soot on deck of Royal Family Suite

Date of cruise: November 1, 2015

Departure port: Fort Lauderdale

Region visited: Caribbean - Western

Cabin category: Suite

Cabin number: 8714

Good for children: Yes

Good for teenagers: Yes

We were so happy to book the Royal Family Suite with its two bedrooms and bathrooms! Having experienced this lovely cabin in the past, we enjoyed the privacy it afforded its occupants, as well as the large living room, closet space, and other perks.

We had a separate area for sunning if we chose to on the main deck, a private beach club on Labadee and early embarkation and debarkation, as well as access to the Concierge Lounge.

The only complaint, and it is substantial: The soot on the deck, especially when the ship is sailing into a strong wind, is unavoidable and makes the deck uninhabitable.

Poor room service was the only real complaint, it never improved, November 20, 2013
Reviewer: Roy

Pros: Staff had an excellent attitude and were helpful

Cons: Room service was very poor and continued to deliver incorrect orders

Date of cruise: November 1, 2013

Departure port: Southhampton England

Region visited: Transoceanic

Cabin category: Balcony

This was a transatlantic voyage in Nov. 2013. We are experienced cruisers looking for value. The ice skating shows were excellent with the other entertainment just average.

Staff was generally friendly and helpful. Room service was poor, but was the fault of the folks taking the order and not the service personnel.
