Everything was top rated. The only issue that we encountered was at embarkation. The porters weren't available, even at 10 am. The line was disorganized and people were cutting in front of others and there was no real help. Dining was ... Read more

This was my first cruise and it was a wonderful experience. I tend to ramble, so bare with me. I'll try to put the most important part of my tips in the first sentence or two. Tip #1 STATE ROOM I highly recommend an outside, ocean ... Read more

Past experience on RCCL has been outstanding. This was far from that. Getting on was easy and painless. The cabin was very good and clean. Depending on where you were on the ship the service ranged from downright poor to above average. ... Read more

Even though the Empress of the Seas is a small ship, the quality of service is excellent! Our experiences with dining were enjoyable as our servers remembered what our favorites were on the menu and even challenged us to a few tricks. The ... Read more

This cruise was terrific! I was worried, as it was my first cruise in the atlantic and I thought I might get seasick, but I felt fine. The ship was lovely, not too big and not too small, and the service was terrific. Embarking and ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our schedule fit perfectly with the dates. The service was excellent and the food staff did an exceptional job. One of the hot tubs wasn't working throughout the cruise. The activities and amenities were ... Read more

Overall this was a fun cruise with a couple of friends of ours. The ship is much smaller than I imagined and the most disappointing thing is the size of the pool... capacity 24 persons and there were 1800 on the ship. Food was not very ... Read more

We wanted to duplicate our honeymoon cruise some 21 years ago. We flew down to san Juan 2 days in advance to take in the sites in Old San Juan and to sample the local restaurants. (Pannes restaurant in the Coronado District was so good ... Read more

While we've cruised on other lines, we decided it was time to try Royal Caribbean. And what better test than one of the older and least featured ships in the line, the Grandeur — one due for a refit in 2017. If we enjoyed ourselves ... Read more

I'm a Crown & Anchor Gold member, which at this point it counts for nothing. With the new system, Gold members are NOT recognized at all. All you get is a letter advising you of discounts. The Oasis is a beautiful ship with lots of ... Read more

We chose the ship as a destination rather than the Islands. The ship is HUGE...TOO HUGE. We had a cabin forward which I do NOT recommend. It is a long hike to activities which are mostly aft. All staff were pleasant and helpful. The ship ... Read more

I booked the cruise as my wife wanted to visit Venice which was one of the ports of call. I booked with Royal Caribbean as it was a well known cruise line, I thought it would be a wise decision. After booking, my wife looked at cruise ... Read more

Staff were lovely - friendly but professional and really helpful. Food in the main dining restaurant was good with a varied selection and always well cooked and presented. As ever on cruises the veg was lacking and under-cooked. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a quick getaway. Embarkation was a breeze and we could have gotten on the ship as early as 10:30am but we actually didn't board until noon. We had a carry-on size luggage and a back pack so we decided to carry our ... Read more

We chose this cruise as I had cruised with RCI on five previous occasions and never had cause to complain. Unfortunately I found this particular cruise fell short of the standards previously experienced on Majesty, Navigator, Adventure and ... Read more

We chose this ship because it was new, close to home and we had never sailed for 9 nights. The ship is beautiful, the balcony cabins and bathroom are roomy, and it never felt over crowded. The Solarium was my favorite area. Along ... Read more

Empress was better than I anticipated. After reading some of the initial responses I was very nervous about taking this ship. Let me start by saying it is a smaller ship so you can't expect big ship things. Your trip we be what you make of ... Read more

Hmmm, if I had to do it again.. Not so sure I'd opt for RCC. I'd probably go with a higher class ship. There were some good aspects about our cruise but these were largely generated by our own doing. We like to walk, we walk miles everyday ... Read more
