Mariner of the Seas is just too big for us, too many people, pushing and shoving at times to get to the buffet, even dining room had problems with mixed orders and warm food. Was it new staff perhaps still being trained? Always seemed ... Read more

Our first journey to this part of the world will not be the most memorable from the cruise itinerary perspective. Too short visit to the classic City of Hong Kong and an absolute waste of time visiting Nah Trang in Vietnam. To arrive in ... Read more

Having heard good reviews of RC, my husband and I decided to go on board. No regrets. The crew and staff are very attentive to our needs and exude warmth and professionalism. We only wanted to be on the liner so we skipped exploring ... Read more

We are a young family that went on our 2nd cruise for some much needed RnR during the school holidays. Initially, we were a little worried about the cruise being a little too Asian themed, having read the reviews here, but we managed to ... Read more

My daughter wanted to see Singapore Malaysia and Thailand Food in the dining room seemed to be the same each night and we ended up eating in the Windbreaker every night for 6 nights. No real entertainment, I am used to Carnival and ... Read more

The ship was great and overall had an okay time. Embarkment was smooth and relatively effortless. The Cafe Promenade was great (the pizza I heard was amazing) for late night snacks. Our cabin was on the 7th deck - had a balcony. ... Read more

After reading the reviews, and even though this was cruise #55 for me, I was still a bit nervous as it was my first Asia departure on a non-charter. I was taking a friend for their first cruise, so was hoping for the best. Overall, I was ... Read more

The last time I cruised with Legend of the Seas in 2013 was very positive, that we decided to embark on a longer cruise in a balcony cabin for a better experience. The 5N cruise included a half day at Penang, and full days at Langkawi and ... Read more

The overall quality in RYI for the Asian market is quickly going downhill. Already the quality in this market is significantly lower than other markets served by RYI. Even within this market there is definite degradation from that of 2 ... Read more

We choose this cruise first and foremost for the itinerary so it was less of a concern that much of what we enjoyed when we started cruising with RCI 15 years ago was absent. No greeting with a glass of bubbly on embarkation day. No big ... Read more

While we appreciate that this ship is out of Singapore & very much caters to the Asian population there are other nationalities who like to cruise & should be catered for more than this ship did. The food while mediocre is very ... Read more

As occupants of the Royal Suite, I would have expected that we should at least be provided with bottled water and not have to keep collecting it from the bars. This is the most expensive cabin on this ship and I expected better. Was told ... Read more
