Well, I guess from what I'm reading you have to sail on Freedom class or larger to get a cruise like they advertise from RC these days. This was an absolute 2 out of 5 experience from beginning to end. I was so disappointed. Let me ... Read more

The friendly crew members was the best thing about our cruise. They were so kind and helpful and worked really hard. My family and I had heard that Royal Caribbean was a step above Carnival. We would disagree with that. We were ... Read more

I've never been around a happier staff........they were wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. The food on the buffet was better than Princess. There was so much dancing and games it certainly was festive. My only beef was the muster ... Read more

Cabin - we booked a Royal Family Suite. It was huge and comfortable, but there is a strong, sour odor in both of the bathrooms. And the main bathroom flooded on the third night. Food - Chop Grille is not worth the money. $35 per person ... Read more

I'm a Diamond Plus Member with Royal Caribbean and have a lot of experience with their ships. The staff was wonderful on this particular ship but I did feel it was lacking in it's maintenance. You could tell it just wasn't as well ... Read more

So we booked this cruise completely on a whim and only 2 weeks until sailing. Neither of us had gone on a cruise before so we were really nervous. You hear good and bad about cruises and good and bad about every cruise line. I have never ... Read more

We choose this cruise based on our schedule and the ports of call. The ship is old but comfortable. We arrived around 2 pm and they allow Junior Suites priority check in. The Junior Suite was 8150, bad choice, under the Park ... Read more

this was my 1st cruise... It started out with someone breaking the handle off my Gucci luggage and losing the strap and the ship tried to repair it by gluing it not once but twice and then it breaks at the airport on my way home. The staff ... Read more

We planned a family of 8 trip for 3 nights to the Bahamas with 2 stops. The boat only made one of the stops, and we were never told anything about cancelling the second stop. This was very disappointing to the whole family. Otherwise the ... Read more

This was the second time on this ship doing the Bahamas itinerary. That review is here on the site if you wish to read it. Therefore I will not repeat too much here. The itinerary of Nassau, Coco Cay and one sea day is the same. ... Read more

We went on this cruise after being cancelled off of The Empress. Very good ship for her age, and it was the most smooth sailing cruise I have ever been on. The service was excellent and so was the food. My one complaint was that the ... Read more

We were bumped over to the Majesty of the Seas after our Empress of the Seas sailing was cancelled. We were somewhat concerned about our experience on the Majesty, given the poor reviews here and elsewhere. It was overall a positive ... Read more

Chose this first cruise after dry dock for a short getaway and the private island and Key West R&R. The ship is a nice size. Having an aft balcony I missed aft elevators but the walk is doable and counters the food consumption. There ... Read more

This was our first cruise with the whole family, so we wanted it to be short and not too expensive. Several members of the family live in Orlando, so Port Canaveral was the obvious choice. Boarding was a breeze. Barely took 20 minutes. ... Read more

Our cruise with Empress of the Seas got cancelled so we were given the option to board with this ship and RC was not very accommodating about booking us a hotel for the night that we would be missing out on from our original itinerary. We ... Read more

We hadn't been on a cruise for 8 years. So, we figured it was time. We decided on a 3-day cruise to the Bahamas. There are 3 cruise lines out of Port Canaveral. Our daughter had been on Carnival. We didn't want to do a Disney cruise ... Read more

This was a last minute cruise. Since we've been on it three times already, last time January, 2016, we were expecting the same level of satisfaction as the previous. A bit disappointed. We had a bit of rough seas going out of ... Read more

This cruise was average at best. With a few exceptions the food was tasty but nothing particularly special. There is food available nearly around the clock, you just have to find what is open - there is a daily schedule provided of ALL ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise, 3rd with Royal Caribbean. I took my 70 yr old mother and 18 yr old daughter; it was both their first cruise. I specifically picked this itinerary because it was a short cruise, and my mom couldn't be gone for a ... Read more

From what we heard and read prior to booking and sailing about the Enchantment _ vs what we experienced, we are glad we picked and went on this cruise. We have done 5 or 6 Royal Caribbean cruises, all larger ships, and predominately great ... Read more
