Getting on-board was a snap. Cabin and cruise staff was exceptional. The ship holds about 4500 passengers, but never felt crowded. We had a balcony room and loved viewing the sea as we travel. The entertainment was terrific, the ice show ... Read more

This was my 4th cruise and by far the worst. Other people in our group have been on as many as 12 cruises. I am extremely disappointed in Royal Caribbean. The ship is nice. It is easy to get around. There is a lack of outdoor ... Read more

Kids ran wild all over the ship. It seemed more like a booze cruise than an RCL ship usually does. Getting a meal has to be planned as the buffet and dining room have very limited hours. The Buffet should have a bit more organization as ... Read more

We chose this cruise line for its generally high ratings and reviews among young families and couples. We decided to splurge and go for one of the balcony rooms, which I have to say, was worth the extra cost. The balcony room certainly ... Read more

We finally got around to booking a 7 day RC cruise! This was the biggest ship of any we have ever cruised on. We normally cruise on a ship the size of Carnival's Fantasy class or Royal's Enchantment of the Seas. Although we knew there ... Read more

The ship was the most boring cruise ship I've been on. The activities were repetitive and not very many activities for young adult (21-30). The island of Haiti was very disappointing, didn't get to experience real Haitian culture like on ... Read more
