We chose this ship because of all the positive reviews and what ports it went to. We went down to Florida the day before our cruise left port. We stayed overnight at an area hotel. We were able to go aboard the ship at 12:30 pm. We went ... Read more

I went on this cruise with my adult siblings and mother. She'd always wanted to go on a cruise and this was our gift to her as it's the first time any of us have been able to afford something like this for her. Allure seemed like it would ... Read more

We were on the Allure Feb. 12-19. We couldn't have asked for better weather at this time, perfect the entire duration. The trip included our 10 year old son. This was my second Royal cruise (I have also been on the Disney Fantasy). ... Read more

We had an excellent vacation. Both the embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. The ship had so much to offer for all of us. There were three pools, a pool for tiny tots, hot tubs, the Solarium if you didn`t want the sun, rock ... Read more

We traveled on the Oasis of the Seas in February 2017 and it was an excellent experience, the best overall of 9 cruises on 3 separate cruise lines. Though we sailed as a couple, we paid attention to the features for children since we plan ... Read more

We sailed on Oasis because we have previously sailed on Allure, the sister ship. Room service was excellent! The shows were outstanding - especially "Cats"! The downside was especially the Windjammer restaurant on deck 16. ... Read more

The ship and service exceeded all our expectations in my group. Harmony has the feel of a posh hotel. Even with the amount of people on the ship I never felt like it was crowded. The only crowd we had was during the muster drill (to be ... Read more

Overall we enjoyed ourselves, but found the Allure to be a better ship. Food was good, however, it was served lukewarm in the main dining room. Fine dining was very good - we went to 150, chops, Izumu and Jaimies Service was ok -- they ... Read more

We choose this ship because this was our first cruise exactly 14 years ago this month out of Tampa. Back then it was called The Nordic Empress and it was slightly smaller. Since then the ship was sold and slightly added to in length and ... Read more

This was my second cruise with RC Independence of the Seas. The first cruise was mediocre but I decided to give it another chance, as first impressions are not always correct. I should have stuck with my first impression. We travelled ... Read more

The venue was what I was looking for plus it sailed out of Galveston which is about 1 1/2 hour from my home town. Embarkment: Easy and fast. Cabin: the cabin was average. Shower had plenty of hot water. The stopper in the sink ... Read more

Long story short, the service in general was subpar. Arrival at the port was a mess. Traffic was so bad, and it was quite clear a simple fix was there. The people were friendly however. The skycap was great. The car was unloaded quickly ... Read more
