We received this cruise as a gift, but just the actual cruise. We spent quite a bit just traveling to Miami, and then all the little extras (like drink packages and tips). My husband and I had neither been on a cruise, and we booked this ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of timing and last minute availability for booking. Ship was small, amenities limited and the crew is indifferent and uninformed. I rarely received an answer to a question on the first or even second try. This ... Read more

Dinner was amazing service. Our server, Joao, was exemplary in his service, treated us very well. 10/10 experience at dinner and kept me going back every night instead of the buffet. Food selection was good and his recommendations were on ... Read more

We booked a 3 night/2 day New Year cruise from Miami to the Bahamas...and it was fabulous! We were very skeptical reading all the mediocre reviews on this site; and learned last year, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a ... Read more

I've only been on one other cruise, with Norwegian to the western carribean. The Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Sea was quite a bit older and the food and entertainment weren't nearly as good. CocoCay was sort of like a Disneyland ... Read more

I'm a working mom of three kids. Me and hubs never get away alone. When we do cruise, we cruise Disney with the kids. So in December 2016, my parents said they would keep the kids the week after Christmas and I immediately went online and ... Read more

Four night cruise out of Port Canaveral, with stops at Nassau and CocoCay. This was our first cruise on RCL, and we had reasonable expectations considering the age of the ship and the length of the cruise. The rooms are very small ... Read more

To celebrate Christmas and spend time with my mother, we chose this cruise. We had a wonderful time with so many terrific families sharing the holidays. Cococay and key west were more enjoyable ports than I expected. The crew couldn't ... Read more

In General, I have to say that I’m very pleased with RCL. The people on the ship were very nice. Most people smile all the time and they’re not quick to say “no” when you ask for things. They do seem to have ... Read more

We just got back from a Christmas Weekend cruise from Port of Miami and overall it was a very pleasant experience. The boarding went surprisingly quick. There were plenty of workers processing the people in line, which helped a lot. ... Read more

We wanted a quick chance to decompress and unplug before the new year so we decided a short winter cruise on our favorite cruise line Royal Caribbean. We chose the Enchanment of the seas since we had been on that ship shortly after it was ... Read more

Everything was very smooth with embarkation, we had an interior cabin and although it was quite small, it was enough for just two. Big boo for not having enough outlets in the room and none near the bed. I needed one for my cpap and had ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the size of the ship and the ads about the neighborhoods.. I also chose it because of the advertisements about all the activities. The ship was beautiful and there was a a lot to see and do. It was not as ... Read more

My wife and I went on one of the older ships, Empress of the Seas. It was very inexpensive. General rule of thumb in life is you get what you pay for. We have been on larger ships for longer time frames and this just couldn't compare. The ... Read more

I Love Royal Caribbean. My daughter and I sailed the Liberty of the Seas 2 years ago and LOVED IT. Colorful, fun and beautiful. Bayonne Cape Liberty is easy to get to and you park right there for $20 a day. So we decided to go back but ... Read more

Embarkation in Bayonne, NJ: Slow and confusing...better signage is needed. Beautiful ship. We chose it for the activities that are available onboard and were sadly disappointed. I have been on several cruises and 5 different cruise ... Read more
