This was my 3rd cruise on Royal Caribbean. The first two were on Grandeuer of the Seas out of Baltimore, and Freedom of the Seas out of Florida. Both of those cruises were wonderful--beautiful ships and excellent food, service and ... 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

Well, we decided to take this cruise because we had already been on this ship and loved it. This cruise on the Allure was a bit different. The embarkation and debarkation was flawless, I got a wheelchair both times and it was much ... Read more

We have just come back from the week long Mediterranean cruise on the RC Vision. I was a little hesitant with the trip as I had read so many bad reviews for this particular ship. We went with another couple and I can honestly say apart ... Read more

This is a smaller, older but well maintained ship and by far, my favorite. The smaller ship eliminated most of the things I don't use on a larger ship and allowed guests who participated in the same type of activities to get to know one ... Read more

We enjoyed our cruise overall. The ship was nice and clean, had many things to do and many food options. Rooms were what I expected based on what I paid for, small and clean. First complaint, their website said we would leave at 6PM ... Read more

This was my 16th overall cruise and 3rd cruise on RCCL. I will openly admit that I prefer Carnival over Royal. We flew into Tampa a day prior, glad we did as storms on Saturday caused a few to miss the ship and catch up later in ... Read more

Reading some of the other reviews for this cruise makes me wonder if we were all on the same ship? But everyone has their own expectations and I know it's not cool to refer to other reviews, so I'll refrain from doing so. I've cruised ... Read more

We have taken approximately 15 cruises. This, by far, was the worse. We followed the "70,000 pounds of metal" heavy metal cruise and they left the ship (and the crew) a disaster. Arrived at port and breezed through registration ... Read more

Our cruise was cut short by a terrible storm that the ship found itself in, with considerable motion from the ocean from hurricane force winds. We do not really know how much advance warning the captain had before sail day, but he ... Read more

I'll start with the the best part of the cruise. Our Cabin Attendant (Clover Roberts) was a great Steward. She was always helpful with a smile on her face and very respectful. She made a so-so trip for us a better than it would have ... Read more
