While we have cruised many times on all of the cruise lines being located only 20 minutes from Port Everglades we had only one experience with RCL on the Oasis, and that was a good cruise so we thought we would try them again. Bad ... Read more

This was our second RCI cruise, first one was on Freedom. Ships almost identical except for size. Embarkation was very slow and line identification poor. Finally on board and walked through Windjammer three times looking for available ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were going with a wide range of ages and thought this cruise would have something for everybody! Luckily there were tons of activities for everyone to enjoy. The cruise ship was beautiful and everything was ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the cost and for the islands visited. Not having to drive down to Miami was also a big plus. We had never cruised on one of the larger ships. This was about twice as big as we had sailed on before, yet it was ... Read more

Chose this as the 1st royal trip, previously cruising on carnival. Overall ship and amenities were very nice. Hallway outside cabin down to elevators smelled very musty and damp. Found out there had been a water leak and carpet was ... Read more

We picked this cruise just to get away for a break. This was our 5th cruise, 3 of which were in the last 17 months. (Did we say retirement!) 4 out of 5 cruises were on RC ships. We parked at Park 'N Go about a mile from the port. We ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was priced right and I wanted to experience this ship. I also had never been to Labadee, their private island. The ship was beautiful and very clean. The cabin and especially the bathroom was quite ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise because the date worked best for my schedule. We've sailed with RCCL before and have had good experiences. Over the last 5 years we have sailed exclusively with Celebrity and have had consistently great ... Read more

This was my second Royal Caribbean cruise, and first for my wife. I previously sailed on the Freedom of the seas. The Oasis lived up to expectations. This has to be the best cruise yet. So good that we rebooked again for next April to ... Read more

Having Cruised on Allure of the Seas 3 years ago we were still familiar with the layout of Oasis of the Seas. We booked late and had to wait until we checked in before we were allocated a room. We were given 8695 a balcony a room ... Read more

We were booked for 1st dinner seating for a table for 2.  Arrived and told only larger tables available with 10 other guests so we had to switch to 2nd seating.  We experienced extremely slow and inattentive service by ... Read more

As luck would have it, this was our second repositioning cruise with RCCL and the same ship - Serenade of the Seas. We were out for 16 days. There is much to be happy about when cruising with Royal Caribbean. Number 1 is the staff, they ... Read more

This cruise was a deal, and travel, from our home to Fort-Lauderdale, and back from Copenhagen was not a problem. We had been thinking about a transatlantic for awhile and the itinerary was perfect. Our cruise experience so far stands at ... Read more

We chose this cruise basically for the price. It was very LOW!! So low, in fact, I called my Travel Agent to find out if we had to row!. There was a delay in the ship arriving to port so our embarkation was delayed. This led to a very ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic. The ports on this itinerary were ones we had never experienced before plus the price was pretty reasonable. We flew a red-eye from SFO to FLL, got to the terminal via taxi and no problems. We did not ... Read more

I am celebrating my 60th birthday this year, 2016, and the cruise was the first leg of a trip around the world. The cruise added great value to my trip and sharing the interior room with a buddy, made it even more affordable. We had ... Read more

* For a ship that just came out of dry dock and was supposed to have upgraded internet service - it was still very slow. * Shore Excursion - Alicante, Spain: Novelda & wine tasting - although our guide was very enthusiastic, he had ... Read more

An enjoyable TA. RCL can improve in a few areas: . . . . . hot tubs near to be HOT, . . . . menu items need to be accurately labeled (for example, tiger shrimp are not 2 inches long and Kailua drenched cake needs to have Kailua, etc. ), ... Read more

Inexpensive 15 day cruise, good ports. The entertainment and crew were top notch. The embarkation and disembarkation went smooth. Beautiful weather the entire trip. The activities director Dennis is one of the best and kept everything ... Read more

We planned a family of 8 trip for 3 nights to the Bahamas with 2 stops. The boat only made one of the stops, and we were never told anything about cancelling the second stop. This was very disappointing to the whole family. Otherwise the ... Read more

Let me preface what I am about to convey by stating that I have been cruising since I was five years old when my grandparents (my grandmother is currently 89, still works as a travel agent, and has been on 108 cruises) first took me on the ... Read more
