This was a five star cruise for the cheap price we paid...$200pp for a 7 day cruise!! However, it was a 2-3 star compared to other cruises we have taken. This was our first time on RC and we were a little disappointed. The cabin was good, the ship decor was good, the ports were good but the times were not: much too short a time in Key West and strange hours in Nassau 2- MN! What tourists want to walk the streets of Nassau that late at night? The food was below average. The entertainment was just okay except for the piano bar and the Eagles tribute band, which was awesome. That was the highlight of the cruise. There was little to do...not enough poolside entertainment or things to do throughout the day. Early evening had a lot of entertainment but there was nothing to do after 9pm. Many passengers gathered in the "nightclub" (which was an auditorium turned into a dance place at night" but no one danced because the lights were too bright and the DJ was awful. There was no well-known pop music and a lot of people wrote requests which were all ignored!! There were a lot of younger people (by that I mean 30-55) who were ready to have some fun, but we always had to go to bed early instead! Unlike NCL, the cruise director didn't really mingle from what I could tell, so there was no one to make suggestions too at the time.

Royal Caribbean International Worst customer service ever. With all these COVID-19 issues and the uncertainty of traveling, whether it’s safe or not, you would think Royal Caribbean would be a little bit more helpful. I don’t think I will ever feel safe going on a cruise again, but I am being told that I cannot get my deposit back because I signed up for a nonrefundable trip. How could anyone have known that this was going to happen. Most all other companies out there, are willing to work with people and cancel things and refund because of this pandemic, but not Royal Caribbean. So Horrible. Never again!

I hated the ship. They cancelled the Diamond Lounge AFTER we made our final payment, and we had checked to make sure that ship did have a Diamond Lounge. There was no apology for why, just excuses. Really? Anyplace else in retail where you do not get what you pay for, you get a refund or a price adjustment. We would have booked on a different ship. The Grand Bahama port was a joke. I felt like we had docked at a manufacturing shipyard. On a positive note, the musicians onboard were very talented.

We did a four day to Havana, overnight, and Nassau. Havana Harbor was interesting, especially entering and seeing an enormous statue of Jesus on the left. The Old Downtown was interesting to walk around, though note there is little to buy, mostly cigars and rum, along with government procured and sold kitsch. The government forces visitors to buy artificially overpriced currency, which is worthless off the island. The apartment buildings facing the old sea wall were crumbling, and it’s obvious most people there are destitute by US standards.

This is a review of a seven night cruise out of NOLA. We have been on several cruises but this was the first time we booked on this cruise. We will not be booking it again. If you are committed to this cruise, the good news is the actual ship experience. The bad news relates to the destinations. On day one there is the usually hassle of loading luggage, parking, and waiting to board the ship. Parking in the open lot is $140. The waiting area is crowded and there was inadequate seating. Boarding was OK. The days at sea were nice. Staff is courteous. Food on the buffet is “cruise fare” that is adequate for the most part. The selections are plentiful. But, if you are used to Louisiana style cooking, you might find the food a little bland. Bring Tony’s! We did have three really good meals in the dining room. And for lunch go to the dining room, it’s better food and there is a great chopped-salad bar. We had a junior suite, which is equivalent to a balcony room on Carnival. The room is nice and housekeeping was great. Thanks, Antonio. We did have three issues with the room. There is only one electrical outlet (dual plugs) and it is on the wall opposite the bed. Bring an extension cord. The weather was unseasonably chilly and the heater did not seem to put out any heat. Bathroom has full tub/ shower and is more than adequate. The mattress was hard, not firm, hard. Having said all that the ship gets 4.0 stars and the staff gets 5 stars. The onboard entertainment is musically oriented and they do a good job. There was Puck the magician – good show. There were two comedians – good shows. The musicals were above average. The jewelry shop has high quality and good deals – per our wives. Unfortunately, the ports left a lot to be desired. First stop was Coco Cay. It’s a privately owned island with water park (extra cost) and beaches (no extra cost). There are some excursions (extra cost). Meals are complimentary on the island. It’s seems great for family/kid fun and for those wanting to pursue dermatological pre-aging and skin cancer. But, again there is no shopping and no cultural/ sightseeing activites worth mention and not much to do unless you are into water activites. There is booze of course. As an aside, I think the water park in Baton Rouge is as good as or better than Coco Cay’s. The stop at Freeport, Bahamas was boring at best. There are 20 or so retail booths that look out of place in the middle of an industrial complex. It looks contrived. They all seem to have the same stuff and shopping was essentially non-existent unless you want cheap souvenirs. There was no sightseeing or unique cultural interests. There was nothing really for the kids, especially when the weather cancelled out water based excursions. That of course is not the ship’s fault. There are a couple of bars as beverage alcohol is ubiquitous. For us, it was time wasted and we would much rather have that precious commodity spent in a fun place. The third stop is Key West, Florida. But, there were no available docking ports in Key West so we had to dock at the Naval base. We still had high hopes albeit we were told to be back on ship by 2:30 then we were told we had an extension of 30 minutes – “woohoo”. We all gathered up, like cattle, at 8AM to go through immigration prior to getting onto Key West. One hour later, we stepped onto the island. Then we were shuttled by bus to Key West. Once there, we began sightseeing and shopping. Key West is a great place. For one thing, there is shopping, as in real shopping. But, it’s pricey and nothing like what you would encounter in say Cozumel. There are good restaurants, key lime pie shops, and tempting bakeries. If you are interested in beverage alcohol there are 87 bars along 1.2miles of Duval Street. There are numerous cultural opportunities. We chose Hemmingway House – it’s a must. We had many items on our cruise bucket list, but the clock was ticking. And, we ran out of time. We had to shuttle bus back to the ship with our buckets 90% empty – frustrating! We may fly back to Key West and stay there a few days. I think maybe the cruise intends to be all things to all people and we all know what that means. Would I or any of my party re-book this cruise? No. Would we go on this ship if the destinations were more suited to our tastes and needs? Yes.
