We loved the coziness of the ship, not too big that you get lost but large enough to find romantic areas away from the crowds. Our wait staff in the main dining room was perfect. We looked forward to coming to dinner each night not only ... Read more

It was a much smaller ship than others in the fleet, and probably slightly less luxurious. But service by staff met and exceeded our expectations. We were unfortunately met by bad weather at seas which made more than half the guests and ... Read more

This ship is VERY small - colloquially dubbed the "Runt of the Seas" on Cruise Critic. Unlike Holland America's Ryndam, the stabilizer on Empress of the Seas is insufficient for Western Caribbean routes in January resulting in ... Read more

Don't believe most of the negatives you read about this ship. We expected the cruise to be a 4 on a 10 point scale, because of all the negatives we read on Cruise Critic. We rated it MUCH higher. No, it isn't an elegant, high end ... Read more

Had the chance to cruise again on Brilliance of the Seas, this time for New Years. This is our fourth time on Brilliance, three of them with Captain Stig. This cruise did not disappoint. We sailed with my Son and Lady Friend, and had a ... Read more

We chose the Adventure of the Seas because of the great ports this ship visits out of San Juan and we have always had a great experience with Royal Caribbean. We flew in the day before and enjoyed an afternoon and night in San Juan. We ... Read more

There were so many issues on our trip that I don't even know where to begin.....One of the most important things, terrible customer service; THE COMPANY NEEDS TO DO A BETTER JOB OF TRAINING ITS STAFF; Staff was not at all friendly and did ... Read more

First of all this was the first time my husband and I took a Holiday Cruise. Furthermore, we have never been on a small cruise ship such as the Empress of the Seas. Everything was organized very well from the embarkation to ... Read more

We happened upon this particular cruise just because we were looking for something that would have us on board for New Years Eve. We also like to travel as inexpensively as possible. We had an interior cabin on the third deck. Probably ... Read more

I'm a working mom of three kids. Me and hubs never get away alone. When we do cruise, we cruise Disney with the kids. So in December 2016, my parents said they would keep the kids the week after Christmas and I immediately went online and ... Read more

In other words they were three for five on the night with a batting average of in the low 200's for this cruise. Now, I will get more exact. We had a snafu at our hotel because we came in a day early and we didn't get there at 10:45 ... Read more

In General, I have to say that I’m very pleased with RCL. The people on the ship were very nice. Most people smile all the time and they’re not quick to say “no” when you ask for things. They do seem to have ... Read more

Not the Royal Expectation we expect for spending Christmas and New Year on board Anthem of the Seas. So much has been said about the ship itself. One would expect this particular cruise to be of some differences at least, because this is ... Read more

In general, the ship was well run, clean, and had a great variety of entertainment and activities. She's showing her age, and is definitely due for drydock and overhaul, but other than that I had no complaints about the Navigator itself. ... Read more

The Allure on RCCL is a great ship. We have been on 26 cruises so are pretty experienced. Disappointed with breakfast & lunches in Windjammer (Never ate dinner there). No omelette station, no nova platter. Seems like RCCL is cutting ... Read more

We wanted a quick chance to decompress and unplug before the new year so we decided a short winter cruise on our favorite cruise line Royal Caribbean. We chose the Enchanment of the seas since we had been on that ship shortly after it was ... Read more

Even though we are avid travelers, from our military assignment experiences around the world, this was our first cruise. My wife and I set this up as a 20th Anniversary gift to one another. When we are on vacation get-a-ways we usually go ... Read more

The ship is amazing but the shore execution was really terrible. There's no enough information about the shore excursions. For example no any information about riding the ship to Costa Maya, such as how long it would take, and many ... Read more
