Overall we enjoyed ourselves, but found the Allure to be a better ship. Food was good, however, it was served lukewarm in the main dining room. Fine dining was very good - we went to 150, chops, Izumu and Jaimies Service was ok -- they ... Read more

Just returned from our 7 day Caribbean cruise and had an incredible time. One of the smaller ships we have traveled on but actually worked out better for us since we were traveling with some 80+ year old family members. Always something ... Read more

Wanted a smaller ship so not as much walking from Point A to Point B. Didn't take long to learn the ship's layout. Walking stem to stern felt about half the distance of the big ships, but that suited us just fine. Our inside cabin on ... Read more

We had an opportunity to jump on this cruise on short notice. We were in Orlando taking care of family, had extra time to vacation and wanted to try cruising- just a 4 day-M-F available. This was a perfect first cruise. The time of year ... Read more

Chose the Oasis because of all the choices the ship offers. Two of my favorite places on the ship were Central Park and the Aquatic Theater. The shows were awesome and I liked the fact you could choose which shows and what time you wanted ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it went to Roatan and it was at the beginning of the year. Our 7th floor promenade cabin was adequate space with a bonus of being able to observe the goings on below without having to see just water. ... Read more

This was my first cruise with husband and parents. I have never really fancied a cruise before but am definitely a convert now. The ship was luxurious with glass lifts and staircases, the dining room was beautiful and dinner felt special ... Read more

This was our last opportunity to experience "Legend Of The Seas" before she was transferred over to The Thompson Group. My wife and I loved sailing on this vessel - three times last year alone - and needless to say we are sorry ... Read more

My husband and I selected this cruise for its newness and to see first hand what it would be like to cruise on a ship of this size. Even though the size was impressive and overwhelming, we sometimes found ourselves in the elevators by ... Read more

I had never been to Australia/New Zealand. This cruise was only New Zealand and most ports were just like big American cities. Didn't see any cool animals. Shopping wasn't very good. I even went to a dollar store where nothing was a ... Read more

Love cruising in January and February. This ship is fantastic and with 12 elevators on each end, we did not have to wait much. The shows are unbelievable. We saw Grease twice and the performers were really good. We love the port at ... Read more

Embarkation - very efficient! Our check in time was scheduled for 11.30am, we were on board at 11.40am. Their statement of kerb to ship in 10 minutes was true. Very well organised which it needs to be when around 4,000 people are boarding. ... Read more
