It was my first cruise and it won't be my last one. Royal Caribbean prepared me very well even before the cruise started. I cruised on Enchantment of the Seas and I really liked the ship. It is old but they did a good job to keep it ... Read more

First cruise in 25 years for anniversary. This ship didn't disappoint at all. We were concerned about the "obstructed view"' however 8508 only has a small pole in sight. Very minor obstruction. Food and shows were above ... Read more

This will be my last time cruising with Royal Caribbean. The food was horrible and in the main dining room one night I had a huge bug crawling in my food. I must say it ruining my evening. The music playlist on the pool deck was low and ... Read more

Appeared to be a good value for the money. We were very disappointed in the inconsistent service, had breakfast several mornings in the dining room and often had to wait "forever" to get the food and often the order came minutes ... Read more

This was a family vacation with my boyfriend's family. Before we left we stayed in Orlando and hung out there and shopped. Arriving and leaving was better than flying and dealing with TSA. I found security to be way better with the cruise ... Read more

We just got back from our trip and as a first timer on Royal Caribbean, I was really hoping to be impressed by the ship, as I had heard good things about RCI. Pros- Staff was lovely. They went over and beyond and always helpful. Crepes ... Read more

Smokers everywhere and no enforcement of smoking areas. Did not show movies as scheduled. Food was good. I loved royal Caribbean in the past... but this smoking experience has tainted me. It's too bad. They need to just ban smoking instead ... Read more

Our large family of 10 chose this ship mainly because the dates worked for everyone and was in our price range. We had a lovely time on our cruise. However, I would have to say that 4 days to Nassau and Coco Cay was plenty. The staff ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we aren't very picky. However, it doesn't take a lot of experience to be able to recognize cleanliness, organization, and good service. The ship: The ship was fresh out of dry dock, and had been fitted with ... Read more

This was an unexpectedly poor quality experience! This was my 5th cruise (my husband's 4th) and all previous ones have been with Royal Caribbean. It seems that the cruise line is consistently going downhill. The first 3 I took were ... Read more

This was our first cruise and were told Royal Caribbean was the best to choose. We went on a 4 night cruise to Nassau, Coco Cay, and Key West leaving from Miami. We chose this cruise because of the price and short to try cruising. The boat ... Read more

We have been on Carnival, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity. RCI was our favorite but after this cruise on Majesty of Seas I would have to say we don't have a favorite anymore. Embarkation took about 25 minutes so wasn't too bad ... Read more
