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 a family vacation with my boyfriend's family. Before we left we stayed in Orlando and hung out there and shopped. Arriving and leaving was better than flying and dealing with TSA. I found security to be way better with the cruise ... Read more

My first and biggest problem was with RC customer service. We booked a room with an ocean view window that was about 3-4 ft across as shown on their web site and paid 3 or 4 hundred dollars extra for this over an inside cabin. What we got ... 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

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
