thank goodness for good weather and beautiful foliage because the ship had many shortcomings especially a lack of enough entertainment after dinner and shows. Nothing to do on the night that clocks were put back. Very poor tv programming. ... Read more

This was standard Royal Caribbean fare. We have 137 nights and it is our most frequented cruise line. The junior suite is like all others. Food in the Windjammer, edible but uninspired. We mostly eat in the specialty restaurants, ... Read more

We went on the sister ship a few years ago The Jewel of the Sea and it was beautiful ship as is the Brilliance, so we thought we would try them again. We liked the ship and the buffet setup better than most other ships as they have ... Read more

Just off BOTS (10/11/15). I was on a 7 night cruise to New England/Canada with stops in Portland, ME/Bar Harbor, ME/Saint John, New Brunswick/Halifax, Nova Scotia. Embarkment went very smoothly (until their computer system went down). ... Read more

My wife and I sailed on the Liberty of the Seas (LOTS) from Bayonne, NJ on October 3. This was supposed to be a 5 night cruise to Bermuda, but due to Hurricane Joaquin our itinerary was changed at the last moment and we were diverted to ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Grandeur (plus two prior on Enchantment), all out of Baltimore. The big plus for us is being able to drive just ninety minutes to the port of departure. We're both in our mid-sixties, and over the past 38 ... Read more

I was very hesitant about this cruise after reading others reviews about this being a "training" ship for the staff, poor service given and poor food choices. We have cruised at least a dozen times but this was our first RCCL. It ... Read more

Having sailed Royal Caribbean twice before, but almost 10 years ago, I expected the special first class treatment I received those times. This cruise was a huge disappointment though, as Royal Caribbean nickel-and-dimed the passengers ... Read more

I would have rated this cruise a 4 instead of a 3 if it weren't for the crazy, mixed up My Time Dining. I chose the cruise for the itinerary and it was wonderful. The weather was also wonderful which made up for the lack of fall ... Read more

This was our first RCI Crown & Anchor member cruise and first Radiance class ship. The fellow cruisers were so wonderful and there was a lot of interaction, probably because of it being a member cruise. However, I think the size of ... Read more

This was supposed to be a cruise to see the fall foliage, but the weather had been so warm leading up to the cruise that the trees were still green. I guess that is a good enough reason to repeat this cruise someday. We arrived in ... Read more

Embarkation: Boarding the ship was efficient once we passed the security checkpoint which was typically inefficient. We required a wheel chair to board. Ship’s personnel were courteous and took my wife and I directly to the ... Read more

Been on several cruises and this was my favorite ship. Easy to find venue locations and love the promenade concept with various eateries to just sit at and relax. Lots of comfy places to just hang out. Saturday Night Fever show was really ... Read more

We had a junior suite on deck 9. The embarkation was very efficient. We were on the ship in about twenty minutes. The suite was spacious and all that we expected. The ship was large - very large. The closet made home keeping very easy. The ... Read more

Royal Caribbean Is a big ripoff. Just did a New England/Canada cruise and the cruise line canceled one of the ports for a trumped up reason, which I found out later. Then, they did not find another port in its place, there was at least one ... Read more

Fastest onboard process ever. Oldest overall passengers ever, not a problem with them; but not enough venues on ship to accommodate a predominantly indoor activity seeking age group. Had to get to the show 45 minutes early to get in, so ... Read more

We were told to show up between 1 and 4 because coast guard was conducting an inspection. We had a rental car and dropped off our bags with one of the baggage valets at the port around 10:15 am, tipped her and off we went to return our ... Read more
