We booked this cruise because it visited Fiji, somewhere we hadn't been before. Voyager of the Seas is a lovely ship, well maintained, clean and spacious. However, we unwittingly chose a school holiday cruise so the ship was at 100%+ ... Read more

This ship has gotten tired. I expected so much more from Royal Caribbean after the recommendations and hype. It was just ok. The ship is not kept up to the level it should be. The public decks were dirty at times; our balcony was ... Read more

We sailed several years ago on EOS for a 7-night W. Caribbean cruise and have always had interior rooms for our previous cruises. As this was our first cruise in 5 years, plus our first with our son (4.5 yo) in tow, we decided to go for ... Read more

We had a great time. The ship was beautiful and very clean. The food was good, but not great. On our last night we ordered the Seafood meal and were very disappointed to find out it was probably a Costco special, frozen battered cod with ... Read more

First, the dining experience did exceed my expectations - but this was the only area that did. Antonio was wonderful - friendly, hard-working, attentive to each of my family member's preferences - a wonderful server! Cyprian also was ... Read more

I liked that there were lots of beach chairs on deck. Checking out towels each day was a pain. And people did save chairs even though they weren't supposed to. The captain was super hard to understand and didn't really keep us updated. The ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise and it was the best holiday ever. We were never at a loss for things to do, and on most days, we did something that we had never done before. While I will not say it was perfect ( there was maybe 6 things ... Read more

We are regulars on Grandeur because of high prices in Bayonne. Food in the dining room is uninspiring and came out just warm every night. Service was very good. The Windjammer is abysmal. We call it "Golden Corral of the Seas" ... Read more

After booking our cruise in September I read some reviews that were a little unfavourable. (unfriendly crew, long waits at bars, not enough deck chairs, ordinary food etc) So I was unsure what we were in for when we embarked. Wow from ... Read more

We booked our cruise for March of 2016, thinking that the Majesty was leaving the RC fleet. Despite the news that Majesty will stay awhile longer, we still sailed on her. The ship does need a major refurbishment. She looks tired, with ... Read more

Our cabin was nice and roomy, however, the shower was way too small especially for my 6'4 husband. I had read reviews about the shower curtain sticking to you but I had no idea of how hard it would be until we arrived. I even brought clips ... Read more
