We boarded in Barcelona on a Transatlantic to Brazil. To start applying for the Brazilian Visa was a big hassle which took over 3 weeks to finalize. Boarding process was not too bad but there were a lot of confusion at the beginning. ... Read more

This was the 3rd RCI cruise of the year for my wife and I, the others were on the Allure and the Explorer. We were concerned that this Vision class ship might be too small in comparison to the others and we were a bit concerned as to how ... Read more

The ports of call were excellent, we booked the cruise because of the ports and were not disappointed, many ports we had not seen offered before. R.C. did an excellent job of planning this itinerary. The ship was in good shape and ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise with Royal Caribbean, and we have always enjoyed every minute of them. This cruise, however, didn't just meet the expectations we have come to expect from RCI. The ship is somewhat dated and general ... Read more

We were a group of 8 couples, friends for 30+ years traveling together. We planned the trip for almost two years. We began our trip in Atlanta, Georgia, and Delta Air Lines did a fantastic job of taking us from there and back. We spent 2 ... Read more

Not at all interested in Royal Caribbean's big ship activities. I'm not into sky diving, surfing, rock climbing or zip lining so I figured the 2000 person Rhapsody would be a good choice I like the smaller ships. Not good choice at all. ... Read more

Enjoyed the holiday, however I would certainly book direct with Royal Caribbean next time as the literature from the travel agent was almost nil. Thoroughly enjoyed the visits to all locations on the cruise and I must say the food was ... Read more

We had cabin 8100, a JS facing the back of the ship. The cabin and balcony size were outstanding BUT this is an older ship and it simply cannot handle speeds in excess of 15 knots even with calm seas without without causing severe ... Read more

Cabin 3079 - large inside cabin. Quiet, big enough for 2 people but not on top of each other, decent storage and kept well by cabin steward Jinky. Food - good but not great. Plenty of choice even for the pickiest of eaters but standards ... Read more

I have my travel agent's licence - and can be very critical at times... and I honestly can say this is one of the more organized, friendly ships I have ever been on! We had a great group of peeps- from 49 to 80 years old, and the ship ... Read more

I would give the cruise a 5 star rating, but the last day at sea was really chaotic. They had definitely not enough deck chairs to accommodate all the people. Or they had enough chairs but some people reserved them, who knows. However ... Read more

We loved the smaller ship size. We read the reviews and feel they were accurate but it was a perfect vacation fit for our family. The reviews scared us after we booked, buyers remorse. But we read too much detail. The food was good but not ... Read more
