Pros : The ship is relatively new. Booked a inside state room 12709. All other categories were sold out as was booking just one week before sailing. First time in a inside stateroom, previous cruises were always balcony or higher. ... Read more

PROS: Windjammer had the most amazing range of meals, only went to the Main Restaurant once, much more selection in Windjammer evidenced by the difficulty finding a table. Loved the pub and Promenade café, spent many hours in ... Read more

In fairness, I should say that this is the first time we've been on a cruise and I don't think cruising is for us. Having said that, this was pretty terrible by any standards. On the whole the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient: ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its ports of call and Royal Caribbean as we had a great experience on freedom of the seas in the Caribbean. I have to state that the staff onboard were as always first class and the cruise lines biggest asset ... Read more

Mariner of the Seas is just too big for us, too many people, pushing and shoving at times to get to the buffet, even dining room had problems with mixed orders and warm food. Was it new staff perhaps still being trained? Always seemed ... Read more

Because of the variety of the ports, although would have prefered more time in Hong Kong. Found our cabin 2598 very comfortable and cabin Steward Rohim very friendly and attentive. Thought the service of Natalia at the drink station at ... Read more

Our first journey to this part of the world will not be the most memorable from the cruise itinerary perspective. Too short visit to the classic City of Hong Kong and an absolute waste of time visiting Nah Trang in Vietnam. To arrive in ... Read more

Great. Amazing and wonderful cruise. This was five star service all the way. Great value for the money. This was truly a last minue cruise- 5 days notice. Then they upgraded us to an exterior cabin. So impressed. Embarkation and ... Read more

Having heard good reviews of RC, my husband and I decided to go on board. No regrets. The crew and staff are very attentive to our needs and exude warmth and professionalism. We only wanted to be on the liner so we skipped exploring ... Read more

I spent much time reading reviews on China and a cruise on Quantum of the Seas, and quite frankly, I just cannot understand some of reviews. When you travel to another country, you are the outsider, and must confirm to the customs and ... Read more

We have previously sailed on the Quantum before so we knew what this ship would look and feel like. We were not wow'd as much this time round but only because we had already seen it all before. We had read some mixed reviews about Ovation ... Read more

Booked this cruise for only two weeks after the Mariner of the Seas cruise. Being a newer ship, I was hopeful for better food. I was disappointed. On both ships, the dining room and buffet food are just not good. It sounds good reading ... Read more

We had to check out this massive ship after cruising with four other cruise companies. Lots of activities and very impressive robotic presentation at TWO70 venue with limited seating. Reservation did not mean anything! There was very ... Read more

We are a young family that went on our 2nd cruise for some much needed RnR during the school holidays. Initially, we were a little worried about the cruise being a little too Asian themed, having read the reviews here, but we managed to ... Read more

RC Voyager of the Seas review We were on the Voyager from March 5th 2017 ‘til March 15th from Sydney to New Caledonia and Vanuatu. This is the 17th cruise we’ve been on so I guess we can compare. First, I must say that my ... Read more

Walked into this cruise experience with expectancy, yet sprinkled with a little apprehension, because I've heard tons of good reviews about the Royal Caribbean cruises in general but read a few negative ones about Ovation in particular. ... Read more

We got lumbered with this cruise because RCI cancelled the original cruise we booked and didn't notify us until after we booked non refundable flights and hotel. This cruise was two days shorter and with an inferior itinerary meaning we ... Read more

The ship was great and overall had an okay time. Embarkment was smooth and relatively effortless. The Cafe Promenade was great (the pizza I heard was amazing) for late night snacks. Our cabin was on the 7th deck - had a balcony. ... Read more

After reading the reviews, and even though this was cruise #55 for me, I was still a bit nervous as it was my first Asia departure on a non-charter. I was taking a friend for their first cruise, so was hoping for the best. Overall, I was ... Read more
