This was my first transatlantic cruise and I loved it!!! I am only giving it a three star rating for the following reasons:

Ship - Was showing it's age and public areas had insufficient seating for the ...
This was a first trans atlantic cruise and particularly wanted to do New York. The cruise was excellent just a few things that let it down. Firstly not enough evening entertainment on the fabulous promenade, the Boston stop should be ...

Just a quick review of our first transatlantic crossing from Southampton on 10th Nov.
embarkation was painless, quick and efficient. Balcony cabin in midship, starboard side was always spotless and our attendant was always helpful and ...
1. Bath room was equipped with a bottle of soap only and no bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body lotions which even 3-star hotels have.
2. No a single lobster tail was served all through the 13-day cruise. This is supposed to be a ...
This cruise was a disappointment.
We docked at Boston at 8am. This was our first stop so customs officers boarded for everybody to clear customs. An estimated time was allocated and we patiently waited for our call around 10.30. The ...
We chose this cruise for its dates and the stop in Boston during which I would have had the opportunity to meet for lunch there with family members living in Rhode island.
We are thankful for all the perks that our diamond status ...
No activities during the day, No exercise, dance or yoga classes. Only trivia, if you like trivia. RCCL trivia scheduled for 5:00 pm which interferes with guests dressing for dinner.
Items in Cruise Compass so very hard to read ...
The disembarkation in Boston for non American guests was a fiasco, eventually got off the ship at 2.30 to return by 4.30. Needed more announcemnets. lots of passengers very disappointed as they had not been to Boston before.
The ship ...
I have been on the sister ship Splendor and now this one...the design is to turn everything inwards to a four story strip mall where everyone congregates because its too cold or wet or both to be on deck. This makes the ship seem very ...

The Food was just average but cooked badly. Most dishes were so bad you could not eat them. A British Chef that could not cook english food. Lancashire hot pot is made with best end of lamb ( ...
5 other transatlantic voyages on Royal Caribbean and this was by far the most disappointing.
First, the food was exceptionally bland and tasteless in both the main dining rooms and the Jade and Windjammer, surprisingly even the Indian ...
Boarding at Southampton was a dream compared to US ports, super-efficient, but that seemed to be the end of the good times.

This was our first transatlantic and generally we enjoyed it. However it didn't start too smoothly as once onboard we noticed our sea passes were endorsed as Emerald and not Diamond as they should have been. Having seen the C&A manager ...
