It was my first cruise trip. Very impressed by the nice facilities and high qualities and variety of the restaurants. Some restaurants charged a reasonable price for special food items such as hot pot (good value for money). Excellent ...
We booked this cruise after cruising on Quantum 2 years ago so we knew what to expect. Our check in time was 4pm and we were soaking wet after being caught in the rain in Singapore. As soon as we got on we had to do the safety drill which ...
Food in Buffet was the same every day. Did not like the fact that people served themselves and food was not covered. Saw many people handling food and putting it back. Other ships have their buffets enclosed with staff serving food, surely ...
This was our first cruise with royal Caribbean and were very excited to do this cruise. The ship was beautiful and never felt crowded. The rooms were well laid out. The shows were excellent and I loved the adults only solarium .
We booked this cruise after we thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the far east at the end of 2015, we booked an inside state room 12311 with a virtual balcony. It was our first trip on a Quantum Class ship & we were excited to check ...
Really wanted to visit Vietnam, Hong Kong and China.
Getting on board the ship in Singapore was ok, there was a large crowds so you expect a delay.
One or two things about this cruise annoyed me, before we went we were told we had ...
Lots of people who were on this cruise will disagree virulently with what I have written here, that's OK we are all different and this is MY perspective of the cruise based on MY experiences
I will not go on another Royal ...
The cruise had lots of activities including i-fly, surf rider, north star, bumper cars, skating, table tennis etc.
The rooms were modern, and enjoyed the virtual balcony. The staff were also pleasant and very helpful.
The shows were ...
Its a huge ship, much larger than the usual 2500 pax cruise ships we are used to. This particular sailing had 4500 plus passengers onboard and all the crew as well. My biggest issue was the queuing up for food almost everyday at breakfast ...
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.
We toured around Singapore for a couple of days before our cruise. We have been to Singapore twice before this trip so have done the Zoo etc.( excellent time at zoo) We got a table on the edge of the of the world in Marina Bay Sands ...
We love cruising and try to visit places that we have not been to before ... and this suited us fine....
We booked through CruiseNation and from beginning to end CruiseNation were excellent... from booking us an extra night in a super ...
We thought that Royal Caribbean was supposed to be a step up from Carnival. While the food was better we preferred Carnival.
Embarkation was a dream! I’ve never had such an easy time boarding a cruise. ...
The price was really good for a family with young kids to travel with great stops - Singapore - Vietnam - Hong kong, Okinawa and Shanghai.
The ports were good however pretty fair out for the average traveller (one port being 2 hours one ...
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 ...
My wife and I returned yesterday from a cruise on The Mariner of the Seas, I feel I should write to you to tell you how dissappointed with the cruise we were.
We have cruised with Royal Carribean before, and have never had cause for ...
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: ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
We were a little nervous about this cruise after reading the reviews but thoroughly enjoyed it.
Embarkation in Shanghai is chaotic but with Emerald status we were able to bypass the madness. Print your baggage tags at home and as soon ...
We chose this cruise because it was a short, cheap cruise which fitted in perfectly with a cruise we'd already booked. I was also interested in travelling on a mega ship with all the extra facilities.
I had read so many bad reports ...
