Cabin - we booked a Royal Family Suite. It was huge and comfortable, but there is a strong, sour odor in both of the bathrooms. And the main bathroom flooded on the third night. Food - Chop Grille is not worth the money. $35 per person ... Read more

This was my second cruise but my first cruise with Royal Caribbean and my friend's first cruise ever. Quite a few things seemed to fall through the cracks and was very disappointing. I ordered and paid for a birthday cake for my friend two ... Read more

My DD was turning 21 and she loves to cruise, so I decided to book a cruise to celebrate. I had only been on Royal once in 2000. I did not care for Royal then, but I kept hearing good things about Royal and I liked the Explorer’s ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ship. Living in Southwest Florida takes away from the ports (we are used to palm trees, etc.) That being said, seeing the mountains of Labadee, Haiti and Falmouth, Jamaica were stunning!! Plus the ... Read more

We chose this cruise simply for the ship. We're Crown & Anchor members and have used RC before and have visited the different ports (Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Maarten) previously. My wife has wanted to try an Oasis class ship since ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were traveling with our kids and their small children and we were concerned about flying with them. Cape Liberty was the closest port near our homes in Pa. We all had mixed feelings about this cruise. ... Read more

The ship itself was nice, but for such a big space, there isn't much going on. The food for the most part was absolutely terrible, poor quality and terribly prepared. Even the paid restaurants were sub par, except for the sushi place which ... Read more

Just got back from 14-May-2016 to 21-May-2016 (7 night) cruise from New Jersey to Bermuda (with a stop in Boston as well). While the ship was nice, there were a few issues that tarnished what could have been a "10" ... Read more

Family cruise with 8, ages 53 to 1. The ship is beautiful and laid out well, but it just lacked excitement. The activities offered were lackluster and repeated several times throughout the week, same trivia. DreamWorks cruise, but the ... Read more

Cruised on Freedom Royal Caribbean. May 8-15 western Caribbean. The service and food quality that we had experienced was great. Embarkation at Port Canaveral couldn't have been easier. We drove in on Sunday morning and used the Port ... Read more

I am someone who always reads reviews.  I have learned that I should take about 50% of what I read.  The people who complain about everything on a cruise, from service to food to entertainment, I don't believe are capable of ... Read more

We chose this ship because we wanted to experience a relatively new ship with all of the technological innovations. Also we live in New York and didn't want to fly (i.e. add airfare cost) to our trip. Plus we wanted to leave from the New ... Read more

This was our 5th RCI cruise, and 2nd on Rhapsody. This ship is one of the smaller ones and can be quite quiet. We were in a group so made our own entertainment but there were mostly older people and some days the activities were lacking. ... Read more
