I chose RCL because I was interested in the size of the ship. It took us 3 hours to get to the port and upon arrival was met with the most disorganized and confusing drop off, including rude workers and a nasty BSO officer. Who stepped in ... Read more

I'm a Crown & Anchor Gold member, which at this point it counts for nothing. With the new system, Gold members are NOT recognized at all. All you get is a letter advising you of discounts. The Oasis is a beautiful ship with lots of ... Read more

We chose the ship as a destination rather than the Islands. The ship is HUGE...TOO HUGE. We had a cabin forward which I do NOT recommend. It is a long hike to activities which are mostly aft. All staff were pleasant and helpful. The ship ... Read more

This was my first time on Royal, and the Allure is very big, we couldn't get over how wide it is. Me and the SE (both in our 50's) flew to Fort Lauderdale a day early and stayed at the Residence Inn, free airport shuttle and $8 to port, ... Read more
