It was the longest tine we sailed on a cruise ship. Here several final thoughts a out the experience.
Due to its lager size, it felt a bit more crowded than previous ships It seems we prefer the smaller ships.
There was a variety of activities , games and competitions for catering to a variety of interest levels. the nightly shows in the theater and the ice skating shows were excellent. Royal Caribbean International has the best theater shows so far based on four cruises we have taken so far.
The cuisine and food preparation ranged from average to vert good. We ended up eating breakfasts and lunches in the Windjammer, a cafeteria-style restaurant. It was average cafeteria style food with a reasonable selections. For dinner we ate at the more formal Sapphire Dining Room with waiter service. We usually ate at 5:30 pm situated at a table by a large porhtole window. The selections ranged from good to very good with regards to presentation and preparation. Our regular servers/waiters Stanley and Bo (India and Philippines) did a superb job.
