It's been over a month now since we sailed on our last cruise. We sailed with Royal Caribbean for the first time and I personally found the ship to be the biggest and most beautiful I had ever sailed on. I particularly liked the Royal Promenade which resembled a mall.
We had a very nice stateroom. When I compare it with all the other staterooms we've stayed in, this was one of the biggest. It had a seating area besides the work desk and it was very, very clean.
I believe our room was 8583. I love cruising a lot but we've visited a lot of the islands in the Caribbean now. Only a few left to explore among them Cuba, Dominica, British Virgin Islands, and Guadeloupe, although I wouldn't mind returning to St. Barts, Martinique, Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, and the Dominican Republic.
And we're off!

Relaxing on one of the ship's decks was a favorite past time of mine during the cruise.
A view of the Royal Promenade. Impressive, eh?
The ship's lavish and elegant dining room
The ship's pools were packed with visitors as soon as people checked in and dropped their bags in their rooms.

This was the cake that welcomed us at the Windjammer Buffet Restaurant. There were several sheet cakes at the restaurant during the week long cruise and the servings were oh so huge!

A duty free shop on board the ship. While the Royal Promenade did look big in pictures, it didn't feel so in person. How I wish there were more stores on board for us, passengers, to shop and browse in.
This is how our stateroom looked. I liked it a lot.
