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

The last time I cruised with Legend of the Seas in 2013 was very positive, that we decided to embark on a longer cruise in a balcony cabin for a better experience. The 5N cruise included a half day at Penang, and full days at Langkawi and ... Read more

We choose this cruise first and foremost for the itinerary so it was less of a concern that much of what we enjoyed when we started cruising with RCI 15 years ago was absent. No greeting with a glass of bubbly on embarkation day. No big ... Read more
