We chose this cruise because we have been looking for these particular port of calls. Royal Caribbean provided the port of calls we were looking for. Even though the ship (Empress of the Seas) is one of the smallest in the Royal ... Read more

I was very disappointed after the first night in my junior suite as it was directly underneath the pool deck. Constant scraping of chairs and pounding feet throughout the day and the night. Paying more for a suite I would have expected ... Read more

We chose the Anthem for the onboard activities, however everything needed a reservation and the only thing that we were able to do was use the bumper cars. Although the bumper cars were fun. The fact that we could not use anything else was ... Read more

Booked a Grand Suite and expected under Solarium whirlpool. Suite 1256 on deck 10 is two suites closer to the bow than under whirlpool. Not far from the elevator and fairly quiet. Did hear moving the heavy solarium chairs and tables early ... Read more

This was mine and my boyfriends first cruise on Royal Caribbean and we were not impressed. The whole reason we chose this cruise was because it was cheaper than going on Carnival, our regular cruise line, but the whole time we regretted ... Read more

I love Royal Caribbean, but this by far, was it's worse. The staff wasn't well trained - I asked the person at the guest services desk if I could purchase the bottled water package that included 12 bottles. He said there was no such ... Read more

I paid a significant amount of money to have the Royal Suite so I could give my mother and father a real treat on the cruise. The Royal Suite experience was billed as a 5 star experience which I stupidly as it turned out interpreted to ... Read more

It seemed that the crew was very unhappy. When asking for directions, we were misdirected several times, or simply told "I don't know." The food was absolutely disappointing. Three restaurants crammed into one, and the menu ... Read more

This was the second time on the Anthem this year. We were on the ship for the maiden voyage in April and couldn't fault anything. We had a great cruise just perfect. Our holiday in October was a bit different. Embarkation was quick, and ... Read more

The Liberty Of The Seas staff was outstanding. Ship was very clean and the Balcony State Room was very comfortable. The Buffet did leave a lot to be desired. We did expect better quality and a change up of the variety. Overall is was ... Read more

We were really looking forward to this trip and although we should have expected a significant number of Chinese we didnt expect the way they behaved which really was an eye opener. I really think RCI and their Agents should inform ... Read more

Embarkation was a preview of what was to come. We arrived at the designated time to find a queue of around 500 people trying to get boarding passes. When we got our passes we were told to wait upstairs until our colour code was called. ... Read more

This was by far the best cruise we have ever been on. Not for the ports of call on this trip may l add as only two of them was worth a visit. This cruise for us was all about the ship. It didn't disappoint. Teething problems occurred but ... Read more
