We chose the June Baltic cruise on RCCL because of the itinerary (3 days in St. Petersburg, and beginning and ending in different ports). This was our second RCCL cruise, and compared to other cruise lines, it was just okay. Some ... Read more

This was our second cruise, after a 17-day PanCan aboard the Island Princess last Feb. We chose this cruise based on itinerary, as it was the only one in our time frame going to Klaipeda (where I have family roots) and Visby (an ... Read more

1. Ship is a bit long in the tooth, as am I, but comfortable and clean. 2. The ports are great. Try to get the one that includes Lithuania. 3. My Time Dining is a joke. Go to early or late seating and save yourself the hassle of ... Read more

We booked our cruise after buying a Groupon in the USA. Our agent was professional and everything went smoothly. We were in England on vacation prior to the cruise, and we are very familiar with their trains. However, if for you that isn't ... Read more

It was our 5th cruise with Royal and I was prepared to be WOWed .. Unfortunately the wow factor wasn’t there. Before sailing I got an email from RCCL stating that the gratuities will go up. But I never got an email about prices of ... Read more

This was our second cruise; the first was with Olsen. We thought the much more modern Brilliance would be better. Embarkation was reasonably easy and straightforward. The first night we ate in the Minstrel restaurant; MyTime dining ... Read more

My first cruise on Brilliance and one of only a handful on RCCL. To begin our Scandinavian cruise I parked at Park Plus at JFK for $228 for 14 days. Not bad for NYC, but I later learned that they have Groupons as well! We then flew on ... Read more

This was our third cruise on the radiance class. We have previously sailed on the radiance and the jewel of the seas. I had read here on cc that the brilliance had recently undergone a refurbishing. What i found was storeroom tables that ... Read more

Harwich made an excellent departure port being not too far to drive from home. 25 minutes car park to cabin equals speedy embarkation, something RCI seem to excel at. This was our first time on a Radiance Class ship and we were impressed ... Read more

This was our third cruise, our second with RCI. Our first cruise was on Jewel Of The Sea and we had no complaints. We therefore expected the standard on Brilliance to be the same. Unfortunately this was not the case. The positives ... Read more

Overall, this was an outstanding cruise! The various ports we visited ( Copenhagen, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm and Skagen) were far beyond our expectations. St Petersburg was definitely the highlight of this cruise. We ... Read more

This cruise had two classes of passenger and it was nothing to do with how much you paid but on which countries passport you used. A US passport gave you first class service and priority over other guests European passport holders were ... Read more

If this had been my first cruise it would have been my last, it will be the last I do with Royal Caribbean. They need a lesson from P&O. There was nothing to do on sea days that was not at extra cost (even then not everyone wants to ... Read more

First time cruisers but we felt well researched and organised our own shore excursions. More relaxed than expected, only two formal dining nights, very few dinner suits seen and some guests ignoring dress suggestion altogether. Main ... Read more

very disappointed with RCI, we have sailed with them several times before and have always rated them highly but unfortunately they appear to have made cuts on the extras , food quality and staffing. Food choice was poor and quality not up ... Read more

Our cruising experience is fairly limited and this was our first time with R.C. Our last cruise was with P and O and so we naturally drew comparisons between the two. We had an inside cabin, which we thought was quite spacious and no ... Read more

This is my 2nd cruise onboard IOTS. I travelled with 2 relatives for a girly break, we chose this mini-cruise instead of the hotel/city breaks we do annually as it was only approx. £300pp for 3 nights in a superior balcony cabin with ... Read more

Our cruise started off well, check in was extremely speedy especially as we had sailed with RCI before. The staggered check in times seems to be working well even without the benefit of being a returning cruiser. Found our room quite ... Read more
