Wanted a quick getaway and it was very relaxing. It's a small ship, you'll get to see the same new friends over and over again. Being small, dinner service was tight. Our chairs backed up to a service station and we were bumped by ... Read more

We are prior RC's Oasis and Freedom class cruisers, as well as Holland, Disney & Princess travelers. In summary, bigger is not always better. This sip is almost too big for its own good. Quality & consistency in service is lacking. ... Read more

Beautiful scenery, wonderful train,dog sled, gold panning excursion. Did not enjoy the bike and brew excursion in Juneau. It was along a rather busy highway with dangerous crossings and I did not find it relaxing at all. Food was amazing ... Read more

The ship is grand but biggest is not always the best! It was just a little over crowded and the dining experience was one of my least favorite of all cruises to include other Royal Caribbean cruises. Service was slower than previous ... Read more

We traveled with a group and others in the group decided the cruise line, dates and itinerary. The embarkation process prior to getting on the ship was very fast, easy and smooth. The cabin (7054) was wonderful - I love the layout with ... Read more

This cruise was a booking as part of a larger group booking with families of 25 teenage girls that had a chance to dance on the ship through their local dance company. This is why it was chosen, with the idea in mind that Bermuda is a ... Read more

Close to Port and limited sailings in June. We watch the ships leave every weekend on PTZ Tv and loved the ships size. We were on the Celebrity Constelation last March and wanted a bigger ship. We had a Junior Suite on Deck 9 which was ... Read more

We had heard so many good things about 'Indie' that we just had to try her. The previous year we had sailed on Anthem and to be honest, I hadn't realised how good Anthem was. But then, everyone has different 'needs' on a cruise. Anthem had ... Read more

I've been on 4 cruises including this one before, and this one was definitely the best if not tied for the best (tied with star princess). I'll start with the few negatives. Negatives: If someone were to ask me what was the worse ... Read more

Went with friends who already booked it. We usually cruise on the smaller Radiance Class. We also were spoiled cruising on a 200 passenger Viking "ship". But we went with high expectations. Never again will I cruise on a ... Read more
