We chose this cruise because it sailed out of port close to home and allowed for a quick mini vacation. This was a repositing cruise for Royal Caribbean sailing out of Seatle, WA for 4 nights. The ship itself was very nice. ... Read more

My DD was turning 21 and she loves to cruise, so I decided to book a cruise to celebrate. I had only been on Royal once in 2000. I did not care for Royal then, but I kept hearing good things about Royal and I liked the Explorer’s ... Read more

This was truly the worst travel experience of my long life. We were traveling with 2 other couples, old friends who had not seen each other in several years and we thought we would enjoy a short trip together. One couple had taken 16 ... Read more

This should have been a fun and relaxing vacation. Perhaps if I didn't have accessibility needs, it would have been. When the booking was made, we had told them I was in a wheelchair and confirmed that accessible transportation would be ... Read more

I am not very "wordy" so this will be short and sweet! Having been on 7-8 cruises, we were impressed by how quick we went thru boarding. From walking thru the terminal doors to being on the ship was no more than 15 minutes. We ... Read more

We have sailed on Royal Caribbean five times in the last three years and twice on a different line. Embarkation was handled poorly and this was the fault of port personnel in Seattle. I did report the incident to Royal and (just as ... Read more

The food was terrible. We ate at Chops and had to send our steaks back 2 times and finally just told them to keep it. It was so tough you couldn't cut it. The meat served in the Tides was not good. There was too much time at sea and ... Read more

After fifteen years of sailing exclusively on DCL, we finally decided to try a Royal Caribbean cruise to Alaska because of it leaving out of Seattle, and the Wonder leaves out of Vancouver. Basically, we knew it wouldn't be Disney, but ... Read more

Even before we traveled, I was starting to have mixed feelings about Royal Caribbean. The first surprise came when I tried to book an excursion and the second was an extremely unfortunate situation with an event. RC’s approach to ... Read more
