Ports of call in the Caribbean. Size of ship was good and had just been refurbished. Had a Grand Suite for the first time which was wonderful and our cabin steward was great. We had so much storage space and the bathroom had double ... Read more

Truthfully I selected this ship because of the Itinerary. I knew that the ship would be much smaller than the Oasis class ships so I was nervous about sailing on her. And what I expected was exactly what we got. Not nearly as much to do ... Read more

We chose this cruise for several reasons. Firstly, we needed a vacation, due to a colder and longer than normal Vancouver (Canada) winter. Second, we wanted to try a cruise line we had never booked before and had heard good things about ... Read more

We have cruised with Royal Caribbean MANY times in the past 10 years. This cruise was just what we've come to expect. The service and amenities were great! Only ate in main dining room 3 nights out of the 10 nights we were onboard. ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on the Adventure of the seas and it is hard to complain about the vacation when you are in paradise but there are a few things worth noting regarding Royal Caribbean. 1. Beds are NOT comfortable. We had ... Read more

Boarding was quick and easy as we were booked into a Owners Suite #1300, so we got to bypass the big line when we arrived at 12:15 p.m. We have cruised "many" times on the Adventure and are very familiar with the ship. The new ... Read more

This was an experience, 10 day cruise and 7 ports of call and loads to do on and off ship could not fault anything. The dinning experience was excellent. Bar service excellent. Room service excellent. Activities to many to choose. All the ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We had heard the ship was old but honestly, it's clean and well taken care of. I have sailed with Royal Caribbean before but much has changed. Gone are the last night pool deck parties with ... Read more

They are nickel and diming you to death for everything. We are Diamond Plus and received no offers for ship tours. Probably because they are selling tours now. Windjammer food and staff were not up to RCI standards and appears they have ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I'd sailed on Royal Caribbean one time previously and I liked the itinerary and length of cruise. For me all new ports of call. This trip was a relatively last minute choice with about a month before departure. ... Read more

We rented a car for 2 days to explore Puerto Rico before our cruise. We split a taxi to/from Cruise ship to airport with another couple in line at taxi que for $30 each way per fare, not per person, and the taxi driver gets there quick. We ... Read more

I traveled with my girlfriend for both of our first cruises, so I have no comparisons. However, it was way beyond our expectations. Great ship with lots to see and do. Amazing service and food was better than expected. We dined at the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the price and for the ports of call. We felt it was helpful to plan and pay for tours ahead of time. It was alittle disconcerting to be asked for a tip right as we stood in line to hand over our luggage. We felt ... Read more

We are a couple, 55-66 and we chose this cruise last minute for the itinerary and it did not disappoint. AOS is a lovely ship and we were pleased with our balcony cabin although there was quite a lot more movement felt than on our ... Read more

The cruise was very relaxing, the ship large but not too crowded, and the service was great. We have come to trust that Royal Caribbean will give us a vacation worth the cost with good food, entertainment, and on board services. The ... Read more

At first we were concerned about taking AOS for our Southern Caribbean trip. Shortened overhaul period and some less than favorable reviews had us second guessing. I am very glad we did not change ships/itinerary. Ship was very clean ... Read more

Love cruising, this was #21 for us. It does seem that some details of customer service have begun to slip. Hard to pinpoint, but just seemed to get short and somewhat terse responses to some basic questions. Not awful, just disappointing. ... Read more

For a long time I've wanted to do the Southern Caribbean itinerary out of San Juan on Jewel. After "sampling" Allure and Anthem, we decided that the Radiance class is the right size for us. Taking into consideration adverse ... Read more

Kids sailed free on this sailing, which was a great savings and why we chose Royal Caribbean for this particular trip. Embarkation and disembarkation were both timely and organized. The dining staff were so great! We recommend ... Read more
