First up, will say that we are pretty loyal to RCL and have cruised on this ship and her sister, Voyager, 3 times now. But for the first time, felt that the ship was over run by way to many mid to late teen bogans!! In the ... Read more

We stayed in a balcony cabin and the room was nice but there were holes in the walls covered with stickers and the pillows were flat but as i read the recommendation from another cruiser i brought my own. The food on board was quite ... Read more

We are regular cruisers on Royal, first cruise on this ship. We also cruise on Norwegian. This was the first time we cruised from Ft Lauderdale for our winter vacation, usually leave from New York or Bayonne but we wanted to avoid the two ... Read more

My wife and I recently enjoyed a marvelous 5 night January cruise on Independence of the Seas, with stops in Labadee, Haiti and Falmouth, Jamaica. This was our second annual pre-Anniversary cruise. Last year we had done a Bahamas cruise ... Read more

Just returned from the Tassie cruise (23 – 28 Jan) and I wanted to comment on our experience (having noted some negative feedback from others on the NZ trip) We are seasoned travellers although this is only our 2nd cruise ... Read more

We were on the same cruise as traci_roo (no relation) and I echo her comments. While the captains decision to stay ahead of the weather was correct, the change to San Juan rather than Nassau put the screws to excursions. It happens, I ... Read more

As loyal RCI patrons, we were incredibly disappointed on our return visit to the Jewel. Three years ago, we had a wonderful time- great service, staff, etc. Sadly, this ship and all it entails has drastically gone downhill. ... Read more

My husband and I cruised on Freedom out of Ft. Lauderdale to Haiti, Puerto Rico, St. Smarten and St. Kitts. It was an incredible trip that we'll remember for a lifetime. The staff was incredible! Our room stewart was amazingly helpful ... Read more

I chose this cruise to celebrate my birthday which I do every year. The price was right and thats why I chose this particular ship. The Empress of the seas was recently refurbished, but it shows its age. The cabin is still very small in ... Read more

GENERAL: We have cruised many times and experience has taught me to look at a reviewers experience level - i.e. new cruisers think everything is great, but experienced cruises see more objectively. Our vacation was ruined by Navigator ... Read more

Enchantment of the Seas was not what I expected. My first two cruises were on larger ships with many amenities. I was worried I would not adjust to the ship's age and size. However, I did read the ship was refurbished not too long ago. ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation both went very smoothly. The ship didn't look aged as I thought it would. It was actually a very beautiful, well-kept ship. The food was AMAZING in the MDR. The service was the best I've had on Royal ... Read more

This was our second RC cruise and although Vision of the Seas is a much smaller ship than we cruised on before it had many features that we preferred. The pool area was less busy and there was no bum fights for sun beds as before. With ... Read more

1st cruise- Couple- Ages 23 and 28 We mainly picked this cruise based on cost and timing. Having never been on a cruise before, we didn't know what to expect. Mostly positives, with a few things here and there. The ship itself is ... Read more

I chose this because of the number of ports I would visit. The activities on the ship had a lot of contests and comedians. We only saw 2 broad way style shows. It was a good getaway from the winter. There were 2 good bands a rock band ... Read more

It had been 6 years since our last cruise with RCI. Embarking and Debarking have improved immensely. No waiting at all. We were on the ship eating lunch by noon. The public areas on the ship are beautifully appointed and super clean! ... Read more

We chose to go on this cruise for our honeymoon. We liked the structure of the cruise and how it docked 8-5 for most days, and had one day of cruising. Some things that you should understand about this ship is that it has a capacity of ... Read more

We choose this cruise to board the Oasis of the Seas for the first time. My wife and I went as we normally do, by ourselves. We are in our late 60's but we dance, have fun and use the pools, jog, run and eat. Embarkation was smooth and ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise and I expected so much more from Royal Caribbean. Oasis was beautiful, however, embarkation was ridiculous and the entire cruise was like this, too many people. Too much waiting in line. I am a patient person but ... Read more

Poor, poor service in the Windjammer. Many tables left full of dirty dishes, unable to be used by people looking to sit! One time had a waiter ask if we needed a drink. Many of the food choices were not labeled, some incorrectly! The ... Read more

The first time my husband and I cruised together, we joined our extended family in a big family reunion-type cruise on RCL's Mariner of the Seas six years ago. Since then we've tried really hard to be "Loyal to Royal," mostly ... Read more

We chose this trip as our 10th anniversary gift to ourselves, and the 12 days away from the cold were perfect. We had only cruised once before (different line), and the experience was much better this time around. Embarkation and ... Read more
