My whole family booked a cruise almost at last minute taking advantage of a very long mid term school vacation for the kids with some public holidays for the adults. We agreed to make it a surprise for the kids, so all they knew was ... Read more

This was our tenth Royal Caribbean Cruise, and sadly, I feel that the standard we have come to expect from Royal Caribbean is slowly dropping. The good points first: We had a lovely balcony cabin on Deck 7 All staff were very ... Read more

This was our 15th cruise & 5th with Royal Caribbean. We thought the last time standards had dropped & this cruise confirmed that. The ship is a bit "tired" but our cabin was kept very clean. The only beverage in the cabin ... Read more

We had a balcony cabin on deck 8 which was perfect. Great layout, stacks of well designed storage, bathroom with walk-in shower. No toiletries provided, we had to buy supplies for my husband in Port Klang. They didn't even provide a ... Read more

After travelling such a great distance from Spain to Singapore and arriving to what you hope is going to be a memorable holiday, it was nothing of the sort. Just a great big disappointment. Its really hard to say what was wrong as there ... Read more

We are a family of four just returning from cruising to Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The Mariner of the Seas was a nice ship and clean although the staterooms we had were a little tired looking e.g. plastic peeling off toilet seats ... Read more

After reading other reviews on cruise critic I was skeptical about this cruise but a lot of the reviews were correct. I really think this cruise is aimed at the Asian market although there were heaps of Aussies and Brits a few Canadians ... Read more

I love Royal Caribbean, but this by far, was it's worse. The staff wasn't well trained - I asked the person at the guest services desk if I could purchase the bottled water package that included 12 bottles. He said there was no such ... Read more

This was my second RCI cruise and I was looking forward to the Voyager class as compared to our cruise on Brilliance last year. This was also my second Asia cruise, the first being 18 nights on Azamara Quest. We spent the night before ... Read more

I paid a significant amount of money to have the Royal Suite so I could give my mother and father a real treat on the cruise. The Royal Suite experience was billed as a 5 star experience which I stupidly as it turned out interpreted to ... Read more

Our first RC cruise and we loved it. Overall we had great services from our Room Steward to our wait staff at the MDR and the Bar Tender at WJ. Cabin felt smaller compared to our other cruises but was ok and cosy. The Ice Skating show, ... Read more

Pros: The ship is beautifully decorated. The art work throughout was truly enjoyable. Kudos to my cabin steward. He was great, however, I expected nothing less. (Stateroom # 7296.) Cons: The airport pickup person was given the ... Read more

The food was mainly Asian and considering there were 2600 guests, of whom 600 were Asian, we couldn't understand why the food was mainly Asian. On formal nights there were many people in colourful polo shirts and when we mentioned this to ... Read more

The holiday started well with a good stay in Beijing, we were ready to get onto the ship after several hard days touring but unfortunately this cruise wasn't up to RCI's usual standard. The embarkation was slow and disorganised, when we ... Read more

We have taken 10 cruises in total and from a dining and entertainment viewpoint this was the worst. Our previous Royal Caribbean cruise was excellent. This was worse even than the cheaper cruises like Costa and Carnival. The dining room ... Read more

This is the second time we have sailed with RCI and before this trip it was considered our first choice, but after this it is most probably, the last. From basic organisation and communication the cruise failed in most aspects, as ... Read more
