I would never have thought I would be writing a review on a site like this, but I can't let this go by. I took my wife and our 2 teenagers on a Spring Break, Easter cruise on the Radiance of the Sea. I have been a huge fan of Royal ... Read more

Our group of 4 drove to Tampa from New Orleans. Looking back we should have flown but we still enjoyed the drive over. Finding the terminal was a bit challenging. For some strange reason Terminal 2 has quite a large sign. So here we are ... Read more

The following is a fairly lengthy cruise summary from our sailing on RCI's Mariner of the Seas. I deliberately didn't use the phrase "cruise review" as I don't think anyone of us that are on vacation is qualified to write a cruise review. ... Read more

This is our 30th cruise and the 3rd on the Navigator. Too bad this is the last month it will be sailing out of Los Angeles, or the West Coast for that matter. RCCL is pulling all of it's ships out of the West Coast at least until 2013 ... Read more

This was our first experience with Royal Caribbean and will not be our last. The food, entertainment, staff and the ship itself were exceptional. Firstly, if anyone could fault the food on offer, then they are hard to please. It was of ... Read more

Boarding the ship was pretty good. We arrived at the cruise terminal around 10:30 before the lines were actually open, so there was a line outside the terminal, but once the lines opened, things moved quite quickly. Our Set Sail said that ... Read more

This was our second adventure on the Mariner and our 8th on this class of ship. You can tell the ship is getting a bit worn, but nevertheless, the RC experience was worth it. Everyone had a great time! Lots to do for everyone. We had a ... Read more

So we had just finished a couple of frenetic weeks in the States, seeing and doing lots of different things. We had a choice between some time in Hawaii or a short cruise. I convinced my husband that a short cruise would be an excellent ... Read more

The Oasis is massive but being a big ship has its pros and cons. The best things about the Oasis are the shows, activities and facilities. The rooms were bright, new and clean. The open areas were expansive, wonderfully decorated and ... Read more

What a magnificent ship! The Mariner was all that and more. I would give this cruise a 4/5. Of course there were a few downsides. The food is never good enough. The weather (like it's RCCL's fault could have been better, yada yada yada. ... Read more
