We also just returned on the same cruise that "Bill" was on. Must have been on the same floor, same side. The rooms were small. In fact, larger rooms on Royal Caribbean in just an outside room, however, the balcony was an interesting time. We are avid video fans, and had a wild time shooting all kinds of things (including spectacular sunrises and sunsets) from our balcony. We loved the balcony idea, even though the rooms and the balcony were small.
The ship rode VERY rough. We've been on other ships in much harsher seas and we couldn't believe how bad this ship rode! The other down side was that it seemed we had a large population of Senior Citizens on the ship and the ship's activities were tailored more to the Senior set and left very few activities for the younger set (didn't make me feel very welcome).
The excursions were great, food great and service outstanding.
