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

We have travelled with Royal Caribbean previously in the Med in 2012 & 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed the cruises. Great ships, excellent food / choice, good standard of entertainment and first class service. However we were very ... Read more

We flew to Singapore as a family of 3 and spent 3 nights at Peninsula excelsior hotel. Had full 3 days of touring Singapore before embarking cruise on 22nd October. Security, check-in and immigration at Singapore cruise terminal was a ... 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

We are first time cruisers on this type of boat, having done European river cruises and small boat cruising in Prince William Sound, Alaska. It is true the boarding experience in Tianjin was an absolute shambles. No information, queues ... Read more

Please think very carefully before booking this cruise. This was our first ever cruise and all I can say is so very disappointed. As a part of our cruise we were given a tour before embarking the cruise to the forbidden city,and the Great ... Read more

The cruise started off with a long wait to get on the ship, but we barely had to line up for anything else afterwards, although a lot of older guests seemed to complain about lines to us. We only had to wait at Guest Services for about 10 ... Read more

We were really looking forward to this cruise having cruised with RCI in the past and had a wonderful holiday. Stayed in Novotel in Beijing for 3 days prior to cruise which was very good. Ship was spotlessly clean and crew members, as ... Read more

Just returned from a 14 night cruise on Mariner of the Seas. I should have realised what we were in for at the embarkation fiasco at Bejing, to say this was horrendous is putting it mildly. However worse was to come. The ship has ... Read more

Firstly we are very seasoned cruisers and usually do not make comments on cruises however we found this cruise as being run mainly for a specific market which left it lacking. The trip to Tianjin from Beijing was organised by our travel ... Read more

This was to be a special cruise for our 40th anniversary and as such we chose to go somewhere far away we may never visit again. This was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean (15 in all) and to be honest probably the last. Although other ... Read more

We joined the Mariner of the Seas in Taijing and the queues were awful, there was no organisation or control, it was complete and utter chaos. There was rumours that half of its staff had walked out on RCC including Senior Management.My ... Read more
