We were a family group of 15 (ages 3.5 to 70), and all in all we enjoyed our cruise. The inner public areas, the Promenade, Broadwalk and Central Park are amazing. It is a totally different experience from regular ships which cater for ... Read more

Cruised with my husband and our 2 adult daughters. We picked this cruise based on the ports, because we've never been to Europe, so it seemed like a great way to get a taste of a few cities. We enjoyed all of the ports and our excursions, ... Read more

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

WOW! Harmony of the Seas is AMAZING. After cruising on RCL, NCL, MSC & Thomson over the last 10 years, this cruise was the best we have ever experienced. Check in from the Airport to Port was very fast, we were on board and ... Read more

This cruise was just average. Many kids running around the ship unattended. Felt like we were at a school with no supervision for the kids. Contacted Guest Relations and they said they couldn't do anything about it. Bathroom toilet ... 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 review encompasses the whole experience, booking, communication, and the cruise itself. This was our 4th Med cruise with RC and we struggled a bit with finding a Med cruise that didn't replicate ports we'd already visited. We got ... 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
