Great ship, activities, and staff was wonderful. Everything was kept clean and even with the Spring Breakers aboard, the crew managed to keep things looking great throughout our trip. Meals in the dining hall were great and the service ... Read more

I chose this cruise mainly because I sailed Empress 21 years ago (then "Nordic Empress") and I wanted to see how the fair lady was doing. In some ways, I was disappointed. Despite sailing during spring break with hundreds of ... Read more

We are early 50's, very active, and well acquainted with the Caribbean and many islands. This was our 5th cruise, having sailed on larger ships before. This ship was a great choice and I highly recommend Jewel and the Southern Caribbean ... Read more

We loved this cruise. While Rhapsody isn't one of their largest ships, it doesn't lack in things to do. They keep the schedule packed with shows, classes, and events. There was a show every night with good performers. The ship had limited ... Read more

Royal Caribbean is our cruise line of choice. We wanted to be within a reasonable driving distance from NC. Wanted to experience this larger ship. With the large amount of passengers, we were expecting a long embarkation. Pleasantly ... Read more

Our embarkation and disembarkation experience for our trip with Oasis of the Seas from Port Canaveral was much smoother than from Fort Lauderdale. The Oasis of the seas is a very classy and luxiurios cruise ship which, eventhough the ... Read more

Wanted to experience the BIG ship. It did not disappoint. We had a great time with everything. Our Cabin (10728/Aft) was awesome and our cabin steward (Romel) was great. The ship was in good shape. We were told not to try and do ... Read more

We chose this cruise because I'd cruised Royal Caribbean twice before, loved it, and have eagerly recommended it to others. Now I'm genuinely embarrassed that I've influenced others to choose Royal Caribbean. Here's what concerns me. ... Read more

Anthem March 5-12 Embarkation was a nightmare... you get scheduled in blocks of time, and when we arrived there were crowds clustered around staff with check in computers. There were no ropes, stations, etc.... we had done the ... Read more

The ship is amazing and has something for everyone - this was our 2nd time on this ship we like it so much. The convenience of parking at Cape Liberty (vs. New York City or flying to another port) was tremendous. Boarding and ... Read more

The Allure of the Seas is a Magnificent Ship made even greater by unbelieveable staff attending to your every need! The embarkation and disembarkation (Even with a slight timing delay) went smooth as silk. The cabin is well laid out ... Read more

The port was very close to our house and very easy embarkation. Beautiful ship and very helpful staff. Food was good although I have had better on other cruise ships especially the Princess Line. The cabin was very clean and the ... Read more

We have been on 17 RC ships and We wanted to see the features of this new one. So we flew from Florida to New Jersey so we could cruise to Florida....which makes us a little crazy. We were given a time to get on the ship but it was still ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the size, age and amenities this ship provided and it did not let us down. While the port of departure was so cold, it did not permit us to enjoy much of the outdoor activities for the first day and a half ... Read more

I travel with my husband, all our children, grandchildren and brother, and sometimes his children- so anywhere from 2 to 21 people at a time. This time there were 8, from 11 to 75. This was our second cruise on Royal Caribbean, our first ... Read more

It’s such a shame that this ship is getting so many negative reviews, were we on the same ship!? IMO a lot of it is down to lack of research - this is not a big ship like oasis of the seas! We were on it last year and it was ... Read more

We were looking for something not too expensive and an alternative to our usual winter week in the sun in the Canaries. This met the bill and the itinerary looked interesting as neither of us had been to that part of the world at all. ... Read more

We chose the Oasis of the Seas because we wanted to try one of the larger ships in the RCCL lineup to see how we would like it compared to the medium class (like Vision of the Seas). We were not disappointed at all. We had a Crown Loft ... Read more
