I do not usually post reviews because they are only a snap shop of an individuals experience however, given that every passenger I spoke to on this cruise was of the same opinion, i am sure many reviews are coming. From the moment we ... Read more

My adult son and I were looking for fun, weekend adventure. The idea of sailing on the largest passenger ship in the world was appealing yet somewhat intimidating. Royal Carrbean made the experience special, and for a short, shakeout ... Read more

Chose this cruise simply to experience a beautiful new ship. And the massive traffic jam of cars getting into the port gave us plenty of time to see it. I would suggest NOT arriving early. Go later and allow the throngs of early birds ... Read more

I did a TON of internet research on this cruise before we went, heard everything, the good, the bad and the ugly. I also am experienced in knowing a lot of people who write reviews tend to do so to vent, this is not that type of review. ... Read more

If have cruised more than a dozen times with both Royal Caribbean and Carnival. This was the best cruise I have ever been on. Elvis-the cruise director-made this trip the best memory I could ever ask for. Most of the entertainment was ... Read more

I booked this cruise as a short getaway during the Halloween weekend. I ended up reserving a "run of the ship" outside cabin. We were assigned an outside cabin on deck 2 at the bow of the ship. The cabin was compact, but well ... Read more

First let me start by saying that my wife and I have been on 13 cruises in the past 15 years so we are seasoned cruisers. Although it's been several years, we have been on Royal Caribbean several times in the past and had no complaints. ... Read more

We've done this itinerary before on the Majesty, and since then have gone on three Disney cruises. We love how much less expensive Royal is so we thought we'd give it another go. Some of what happened wasn't anyone's fault, you can't ... Read more

My husband and I had to fly to the east coast for a wedding, so we decided to take a short cruise to extend our time away. I choose the Enchantment of the Seas because it was going to Key West. We checked out of our hotel at 11:00 ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I was going it solo for the first time. My room was clean. However, I had only 1 outlet to use. I was told to move the nightstand to access another outlet. I had no nightstand. Night#1. They had a ... Read more

Our Royal Caribbean cruise started off well. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. We found the Majesty of the Seas’ public areas clean and inviting. Our oceanview cabin was functional but very small. We enjoyed the service provided ... Read more

I got this cruise at the last minute (10 days before sailing) as a fun get away for fall break with my family of 6 (2 adults & 4 kids - age 8-13). It was fairly cheap & RC has a pretty good reputation. I read several reviews that ... Read more

Cruised to Charleston, Port Canaveral, Miami, Nassau from 10/22/16 to 10/31/16. As always Baltimore was great as a cruise port. Even though the fact that it's 15 minutes from my house is a major factor in liking Baltimore, the staff from ... Read more

I choose the cruise because of the itinerary - Charleston, Miami, Nassau, private island and i always wanted to try Royal Caribbean. It just didn't happen for us. Carnival, NCL, but never on RCI. So, we even drove to Baltimore from NY. ... Read more

This was our fifth cruise on Grandeur and our first in a junior suite. We live an hour from the port of Baltimore and enjoy the fact that we do not have to fly to get to the terminal. As always we dropped off the luggage and sailed through ... Read more

The best part of the cruise was we didn't have to fly. We live close enough and only takes an hour to get to the pier. Embarkation was a breeze. The overall cruise was okay. The food in the main dining room has gone down hill again ... Read more

First of all, the crew is awesome. They go out of their way to make you happy. That said, there were issues. The ship is very old and it shows. The showers are almost unusable, very tiny. The beds were not comfortable and the pillows ... Read more

The cruise director and staff did an excellent job of keeping us entertained and activities/events moving. The headliner shows for the most part were perfect with only one magic act uneven in his performance. The food in the dining room ... Read more

This was cruise #69, we are in 60's cruising since 1984. We sail several lines and honestly are unhappy on what cruising has become. An airline corporate operation at sea. Business model now find a new thing to charge for, eliminate, or ... Read more

Hubby and I chose this short get away to use some points and celebrate our 17th anniversary. Our anniversary was back in August so we were using the Anniversary as a rouse to get away without our 12 and 15 year olds. It worked. This was ... Read more

This cruise reminded me of what it was like cruising 20 years ago. The ship is relatively small and there is not a lot to do. It is a very different experience from the mega ships. But you get to know the passengers and crew. You read ... Read more
