  • Meta upgrades mean only that location moves can be made but not categories

  • Fountain [gun] cokes can still be purchased with some guff from bar tenders
  • No brewed coffee at the bar just outside the buffet formerly known as Horizon Court

We were on the Royal at term 2 when the CB was coming into Ft Lauderdale at around 9 AM. I couldn't believe a ship arriving that late.  Shocked
There must have been a scramble to get everyone to the airport in time. What was up with that?

Yes the Royal is quite the same with their volume of music. Especially in the Piazza where the band is at full volume almost every night. It becomes almost impossible to order a coffee or gelato without screaming at the top of your lungs to be heard.
Still the passengers seem to love it & can't get enough of it since it was always packed.

We were last on the Caribbean Princess with our granddaughter in August 2004 & of course it was in quite good condition.  Had a wonderful first time cruise for our granddaughter...  Wink...

We were on it in Feb & I wouldn't rush back. Nothing major wrong but many things could have been better.
