Took the train from termini station, Rome to cruise port for 5 euros. It's about a 7 minute walk from station along a flat walkway to port entrance where a free shuttle picks you up to bring you to the ship. Very easy. Glad we didn't ... Read more

We arrived early in Rome & stayed at Crowne Royal hotel. This hotel is used by Royal Caribbean but we booked this on our own. It is a very nice hotel. However, there are no reastaurants or cafes in the area. So you can eat at the hotel ... Read more

Embarkation was excellent, we arrived at 12 and there was no waiting. We went straight to the Windjammer which was very good especially as it was the first day. Our cabin was ready at 3pm. The ship had apparently been in dock for some ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise with Royal Caribbean, and we have always enjoyed every minute of them. This cruise, however, didn't just meet the expectations we have come to expect from RCI. The ship is somewhat dated and general ... Read more

The Allure of the Seas is a beautiful ship, but on our cruise, we found it far to crowded. We had to queque up all the time and it became quite frustrating. When we booked our cruise 10 months beforehand, I booked into 'My Time Dining' ... Read more

Not at all interested in Royal Caribbean's big ship activities. I'm not into sky diving, surfing, rock climbing or zip lining so I figured the 2000 person Rhapsody would be a good choice I like the smaller ships. Not good choice at all. ... Read more
