Sailed out of San Juan which was a nice way to start and end my trip. I've been on 4 RC cruises now and I feel like every ship is exactly the same - same food, same games, same poolside activities, same everything. Not necessarily a ... Read more

We were looking to get out of town on a limited budget, without giving up the thrill of great past experiences. We sailed this ship in 1993 and again 24 years later. My wife has also sailed this ship with her Father, her third voyage on ... Read more

It looked like a good deal price-wise for the first cruise of the year to the Baltics. The food in the main dining room was pretty good in the evening except for the desserts. The next to last night they exceeded themselves with offerings ... Read more

I like RCCL because this cruise-line offers plenty of activities for all ages. While there is plenty to do on board, as well as the ports of call, you can always find a quiet place to relax and unwind. The staff is always kind ... Read more

Bahamas is a lousy destination unless you go to Atlantis (extra $135), shops offer nothing but T shirts and jewelry, area look is not well kept, though still felt safe. Cocoa Cay is good. Dinners were great, Casino was good sized. A drunk ... Read more

We chose this cruise because all three port visits were in destinations we had never visited before. But our primary destination was Allure of the Seas herself. We've been dreaming of a cruise on an Oasis class ship since the launch of ... Read more
