The Allure of the Seas is a truly amazing ship in terms of scale and amenities, and there were a lot of great opportunities for fun on board the ship. Our stateroom was spacious and clean, and our stateroom steward was perhaps the ... Read more

I figured all of the original bad reviews from the ship were the typical inaugural sailing pains, and that our cruise (the 3rd or 4th) would be fine. Thankfully, I was right. No problems with a/c, plumbing, food, etc. Embarkation was ... Read more

We chose this ship as it was advertised as having all the exciting new features like indoor skydiving, bumper cars, etc. To our MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT, the moment we boarded the ship and tried to make on online reservations for ... Read more

The Ship: The major problem was that there were far too many passengers for some of the facilities on board. Getting a sunbed anywhere was sometimes impossible (and always if the sun was out!). There are the usual signs about not reserving ... Read more

My husband surprised me with this cruise as it was over our 20th anniversary. We liked the idea of a smaller ship as it was just the two of us (sailed on the Oasis with our 3 kids in April) and we liked the more intimate setting. On ... Read more

We just got back a couple of days ago from our 7 night trip on the Oasis of the Seas. Let me start by saying that I write very long reviews on our cruises, mainly because I personally like to read them and learn as much as possible before ... Read more

I am a long-time cruiser, having cruised RC about a dozen times over the past 20 years. While some RC cruise ships are a little better than others, they tended to be similar -- until I took the Rhapsody of the Seas. This most recent ... Read more

We arrived in Rome 2 days before the cruise left and had an amazing time exploring the Vatican, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. Ahhhh... the food in Rome was to die for. We stayed at a small B&B, A View Or Rome, and loved ... Read more

This was not my first time cruising on Royal Caribbean. So, I was very aware of the kind of service to expect. There are a couple of areas of improvement needed, but I will discuss those in detail later. We departed from the extremely ... Read more

We have been on Carnival, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity. RCI was our favorite but after this cruise on Majesty of Seas I would have to say we don't have a favorite anymore. Embarkation took about 25 minutes so wasn't too bad ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise. What appealed to us was the mix of days at sea, together with the variety of ports. We also did not want one of the very large ships. Embarkation went very smoothly, getting on around 11.30 in the ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas this year. In March we spent two weeks sailing Chile to Argentina. RCCL needs to spend some money on Rhapsody of the Seas to bring it back to the quality level you expect on RCCL. To ... Read more

Here is my feedback to RCI. I think that it is a balanced review. I thought that other Cruisers may be interested. The good bits: Check-in – arriving at our chosen time, we were directed to a check-in agent, who scanned the Sea ... Read more

The cruise was sold to me on the basis of being a 'Maiden Voyage', but once on board it was indicated as 'Pre-Inaugural' or 'Preview' cruise. There was no indication the ship would still be in the process of being completed, with work men ... Read more
