Everything was very smooth with embarkation, we had an interior cabin and although it was quite small, it was enough for just two. Big boo for not having enough outlets in the room and none near the bed. I needed one for my cpap and had ... Read more

The room was very nice and so was our cabin guy. He did a great job. We did not especially care for the food and the deserts was the worst we have experienced. The food on the smaller ships is much better all around. We think they ... Read more

STAR Class with Royal Genie. It was awesome. Embarkation was fast. Go to Star Class area and designated person will escort you through security and check in. We went straight to suite WITH OUR LUGGAGE. It took longer to park the car ... Read more

We just went on our first cruise. Honestly, we chose Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas because of the cruise dates, we needed to leave after our college kids finished finals but wanted to be back before Christmas Eve. Even though it was ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise, and our 8th on Royal. We booked within the last couple weeks prior to the cruise as a get-a-way to celebrate my wife's recovery from surgery. Two of our good friends came along, which made for a great long ... Read more

Chose this cruise as a "sisters getaway" and to check out a mega-ship for comparison to our other sailings. This ship is huge, but well-placed signage makes navigating about it very manageable. We sailed full+, 6,100 ... Read more

The Oasis was overbooked (6400 guests) where accomodations required cramming tables and passengers into dining room hallways and pathways. Ship staff appeared to be overwhelmed. Engagement from staff was linmited and the culture seemed to ... Read more

Love the ship! The performance of the cast of Cats were great, however, I just can't get into that show. Windjammer food was better than Liberty and Freedom of the seas. The service was great. We didn't have much trouble finding a ... Read more

Since many of you have been on the Freedom and now wondering about going on the Oasis as it replaced Freedom at Port Canaveral. Even though there are some comments, this is a good cruise. We have not been on the Freedom for about 11 ... Read more

Majesty, one of the smallest, oldest RCCL ships... I had lower expectations for the ship based off the age and size of the ship as well as other reviews but it was fine for a short 4 day sailing. I'd have no issue sailing on it again. My ... Read more

We booked this cruise VERY last minute, so it was an excellent deal. That wasn’t the reason for going, however. Due to some strokes and other medical issues, my husband wasn’t doing well and we had missed our cruise that was ... Read more

There were many things that fell below expectations and will unfortunately cause me to rethink if I will be cruising RCCL in the future. Normally my first choice is RCCL when we are about to cruise. It's a nice ship, actually great ... Read more
