This was our fourth cruise on RCCL - first on Majesty. We selected the Royal Family Suite because we need the two bedrooms. Space overall was good. Balcony was fairly large but because of the ship's design, the eleventh deck hung over ... Read more

We did this same cruise in the winter of 2015 -- unfortunately we missed Coco Cay last year because of high winds and had two days in Nassau. Swore I wouldn't do it again, but the price was good and the Port Canaveral terminal is so easy ... Read more

We loved our cruise. We went to Nassau, Cococay, & Key West. Nassau we did the Queen's Staircase and a Booze Cruise. I recommend both. Stay away from Senior Frogs. Overpriced. Cococay we brought our own snorkel gear and swam ... Read more

I didn't have the highest expectations of this short cruise, but the port is only about an hour from home, and the price was right, so why not go? Check in was easy, but I was a bit anxious because it was very clear this was Spring Break ... Read more

I've taken cruises before, but I've never experienced anything like this. I'm not sure if Royal Caribbean has just gone to total crap, or it was this one ship. But to sum it up, I would need to be drugged and forcefully taken back in order ... Read more

Got off the Enchantment of the Seas a few hours ago and we wanted to give our review while it was fresh, so here is the GOOD and the BAD. We are first time cruisers and we were told to keep our expectations very low, which we did, and it ... Read more

First time on Royal Caribbean and a poor first impression. Check in was not bad, but could tell security screening was intended to find alcohol, not weapons - side table was full of confiscated booze. Stateroom was nice with a ... Read more

February 25 to March 5 on the Navigator of the seas. Embarkation was fairly easy despite leaving from the dreaded terminal 29. Prior to the cruise, I stayed at the Quality Inn airport/cruise port, which was fine with free shuttle service ... Read more

This ship is an older and smaller ship without many of the amenities of the larger, newer ships. However the staff excelled at making the most of the facilities available. The Windjammer had more selection of deserts, Asian, curries and ... Read more

Chose this cruise a year ago in order to visit Key West and the Bahamas for the first time. Booked a Junior Suite on Deck 8 and My Time dining as early sitting was sold out. Took the chance that flying to Baltimore from Seattle would ... Read more

We are a couple in our 50s. This was our 20th cruise, 3rd time on Enchantment. We live near Port Canaveral so this is a convenient getaway for us. This was our second trip on Enchantment over the span of a month. The weather was ... Read more

Our family was on the February 13 sailing of the Anthem -- the sailing immediately after the cruise from which she had to return to port after hitting a storm off North Carolina, and immediately before the one from which she had to return ... Read more

We cruised on 2/13-2/21/16 on the Anthem of the Seas! Our cruise was the one after the ship had been caught in the storm and suffered some damage notably to the azipods. We were not sure if the ship would be cleared to sail by the USCG ... Read more

We recently cruised with Royal Caribbean out of Baltimore on the Grandeur of the Seas. Our cruise set sail on February 13th out of Baltimore. Before I go into the negatives, I wanted to say that I was impressed with the premium ... Read more

Anthem of the Seas should not have departed on the 2/13 sailing from Bayonne, NJ a few days after the previous week’s sailing through a major storm. Driving to the pier on 2/13 was very discomforting, because up until arrival at ... Read more

Before I get started please check out my other reviews. I tend to be fair and even my best cruise experiences have had a few bumps. How you respond to those bumps will often impact your overall experience. THE TERMINAL There's very ... Read more

GENERAL/”HITS” Anthem is a beautiful ship, with just a few bumps & bruises visible from her ordeal the previous week. Our check-in “appointment” was at 12:30, but I wish we had planned to arrive earlier. ... Read more

We sailed the Anthem the week following the hurricane problems. In general there was no carryover from the storm on our cruise. I will temper my review by saying the we are "senior citizens" and many reading this review ... Read more

After being promised by Royal Caribbean that Anthem will be ready to go after the infamous "cruise from hell", and the damage was only "cosmetic", we set out for Bayonne. The cruise port was fine as we got there early ... Read more

Check-in We waited for almost an hour in our cars waiting to get into the terminal in Bayonne, NJ. Surely, there had to be a way to speed this up. In comparison to the Baltimore terminal, there seemed to be more luggage handlers in ... Read more
