This ship was recommended by friends who have cruised for years. Some of the positives: Embarking and disembarking was excellent. The food and service in the main restaurant was excellent, the extra charge for the speciality restaurants ... Read more

The service on board was great and we found that all the staff and crew were friendly and helpful. The food was a little repetitious however for a 14 night cruise, that it sometimes to be expected. Usually the standard was good, however ... Read more

My Parents are platinum Customers and organised a Family cruise for us all. My first experience, and that of other Family Members also. Where do I start, it felt to me that once we had paid then interest in us dwindled rapidly. 50% ... Read more

This was our first cruise and our honeymoon. Having read previous reviews about this ship I was slightly worried but I really do not know where the negative views come from. The ship was absolutely beautiful and from the ease of boarding ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because of the ports of call. I'd previously sailed on a short voyage with Royal Caribbean whilst in the USA. This was about 10 years ago and had a great time so no reason not to try them again. Check in ... Read more

This was our first cruise. Embarkation was very good, everything was explained, I was very nervous, but was made to feel at ease. Our dinner table was with others, asked to have table for two, which was easy to change. Cabin was ... Read more

This is not one of the best ships with Royal Caribbean I have been on 3 others and they were far better than this one, everything about this ship was done on a budget, the entertainment was poor amateurish, the lack of activates on sea ... Read more

Always wanted to see the Norwegian fjords & we hoped by going in August (albeit late August) we would have decent weather. We had been to the Sounds in NZ on a stunning day in March on Radiance, so were hoping our luck would hold for ... Read more

I had never been on a cruise before and went purely to see the Fjords. Embarking was really very easy - we were on the ship within 15 minutes of entering the departure building. Immediately staff were helpful and attentive. The ... Read more

Many previous reviews have been extremely negative and in some cases completely unfair, however each passenger has a different experience or point of view. Thankfully I have come off the ship having had a fantastic weeks cruise in Norway. ... Read more

Boarding process and Disembarkation were both Excellent Ship: Bit tired looking and didn't really have a wow factor. Probably not helped by weather being poor and things look less well in the rain Entertainment: Easily poorest we ... Read more

Although the ship has been refurbished handsomely, I found my cruise experience to be below average. I have always felt pampered on the cruises I have sailed on before this one. The small amenities that I have been accustomed to on ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose to do it after many flight delays and too much airport stress in previous years. That aspect of the holiday was so easy. We parked, some very friendly people took our luggage out of our car and we saw ... Read more
