Staff were highlight of the ship. Overall decor and appearance of ship is dated as expected for the age. Food was good although some nights could be hit/miss. Tables and furniture could get a bit sticky probably from the moisture in the ... Read more

Chose this cruise for itinerary and length, 10 days instead of the usual 7. For age of ship though it was in good condition clean and reasonably well laid out. We were travelling with 3 teenagers so had adjoining rooms, big mistake ... Read more

Booked this cruise for the itinerary. As we were touring Spain prior to the cruise, we decided to treat ourselves to a Junior Suite, to get a few extras and space. We were pleased with the suite, however the location deck 8 was right under ... Read more

We are Diamond with RCCL and booked this cruise specifically for the itinerary which exceeded our expectations. So much so that we will definitely have to come back and do a land base tour of many of the islands because we just didn't have ... Read more

Just returned from a 10 night cruise from Venice to the Greek Islands. Overall the whole cruise was very good. We were booked into junior suite 8030 on deck 8. The cabin was surprisingly spacious with more storage space than we have had ... Read more

We are a family of five (parents and three pre-teen children). Our decision was based on destination (Greece), price and availability of adjoining rooms (can't have 5x people in the same room). It is the second cruise we took as a family ... Read more

We are a family with 2 teens – 15 and 16. We aim to enjoy our holidays so don’t stress if the towels are smaller than they should be (which they are) or if Guest Services give us a spare room key that didn’t work, ... Read more

A lovely ship with some great places to visit. (Corfu, Athens, Santorini, Mykanos, Kotor and Zadar). It is not one of the biggest ships so it does not offer all the features people might expect but on the other hand this makes it easier ... Read more

I am new to this forum and am not sure if the purpose of my post is appropriate for this board but I feel our experience following our most recent cruise is something of concern of which others should be aware. We have cruised with RCI ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Venice may not always allow the big ships in and we wanted to see it while it was still an option. Embarkation was the easiest I have ever done, arrived at the port at 10:30am or so, on board by 11am. We ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the destinations. Which on 50% of the time was as expected. The others were not as advertised. We had to pay extra to get into the local towns, even when using their shuttle services. In Dubrovnik, they charged $12 ... Read more

We chose Royal Caribbean as I had already cruised with them some years ago to the Caribbean. The itinerary drew us to this cruise as we had not been to any of the destinations except Venice before and we specifically wanted to try a ... Read more

I would give a rating of average to good to this cruise. My number one complaint was the internet service. RC customer relations staff told me, when I complained, that the service was bad because they had too many people online. If ... Read more

As a wheel chair user I found the staff ignorant of my needs, there seemed to have been no training re mobility passengers. From getting into arrivals at Venice to departures at Venice 10 days later it was a shambles. We had to wait 45 ... Read more
