I will preface this review by stating that the ship is beautiful, the service was excellent, and the food onboard was probably the best I have ever seen on Royal Caribbean (We have cruised with RCL 10+ times). There were a lot of ... Read more

Let's do the good to bad game. EXCELLENT: the ship is an engineering marvel, and your jaws will drop the moment you set foot at the ship. It's like stepping into a DreamWorks movie. Choice of food in the main dining rooms is ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and I was not disappointed. They had to skip Santorini due to high winds in that port (which the captain decided would preclude tendering) and they went to Crete instead. I have never been to Santorini ... Read more

We booked this cruise for our anniversary and chose it almost exclusively for the ports. After reading the reviews I was a bit apprehensive and found that, unfortunately, they were mostly accurate. First, embarkation was smooth-no ... Read more

This will be short because of time. We took this because of the amazing itinerary - some ports of which have now been deleted. Ravenna was wonderful but they stopped going there. Kotor is a great port for the sail in (90 minutes) through ... Read more

This cruise was somewhat of a disappointment for us as we were on our Honeymoon but also for the 2 other couples we met while on their honeymoon. 1.) The staff was miserable! 2.) The food was edible at best. It took 10 days for them ... Read more

Out of all our cruises, eight previous cruises in various locations, this ship had the worst service. The crew and the staff just didn't care about their customers. Minor issues, that on other cruise lines would be addressed and ... Read more
