We chose rci because we have been with other cruise lines and thought it might be worth a try. The ship itself is ok. If you like a floating ATM. Eg, a $4.50 bag of maltesers, $12.99. A $4.50 toblerone, $29.00. Even the people who ... Read more

I was looking for a cruise that sailed on my partners birthday, so this was the one that I choose, for being near our city and on the same date. Embarkation was real smooth, though it would have been nice to get more information on ... Read more

We had a good time and enjoyed the itinerary. However, we were disappointed compared to our vacation on this ship last year. My Time dining changes and making all the restaurants have the same menu was not a positive in our opinion. ... Read more

Our cruise was a great experience. As seasoned cruisers we feel RCI and specifically the Anthem of the Seas is a great value. This was our second cruise on the Anthem and as repeat cruisers we found the ship very comfortable with many many ... Read more

It was a cruise with my partner and two members of family. The ship was agreable and the cabin was small, old but clean. Entertainement at Royal Theater was very interesting. The other bars was not very funny...On the karaoke night, a ... Read more

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

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

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

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

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
