This was the first time we did a back-to-back. One week goes by much too quickly, so it was a wonderful feeling when we didn't have to leave after one week. Since we booked our second week two months after our initial week booking, we had ... Read more

This ship will be leaving US service in April to go to Italy and then be transferred to a subsidiary in China. The facilities are old and tired but kept clean. The operations seem to be running to minimize expenses. The food in the main ... Read more

Disappointed that the cruise originally booked for 12 nights with 6 ports to the Western Caribbean became 11 nights with 5 ports to the Eastern Caribbean. The ship is beautiful. The staff was very nice - always pleasant and for the ... Read more

For the most part my DW and I had a great Cruise on the Serenade of the Seas. The ship was in pretty good condition for "its" age, signs of wear and tear,rust, stains, dirty glass,loose chair backs in Windjammer. I will ... Read more

We sailed out of San Juan January 24, 2016 on Jewel of the Seas. We stayed a night off of Condado Beach, which was a wonderful location with lots of shopping, beach, park and restaurants - even a Walgreens nearby. Costs of cabs varied - ... Read more

This was my 6th cruise ship, 4th with RCI. The first ship we enjoyed with RCI was the Radiance in 2012 and it had been my intention since then to spend my 60th birthday on her again. It didn't matter where it went or for how long. As a ... Read more

This was my first cruise on RCI Granduer of the Seas, chosen because I took my mother-in-law and the port of Baltimore was convenient for driving rather than flying. She has sailed with RCI in the past and for her this was also a cruise ... Read more

My party: 3 people, aged mid 40's to mid 70's Pre-cruise history: We have been on over a dozen cruises, nearly all with Royal Caribbean (RC). We set this cruise up in October through our travel agent, like we always do. A week ... Read more

We had a great time on the Brilliance of the Seas. We are mostly Princess cruisers and hadn't been on a Royal Caribbean ship for many years. We've recently moved to the Gulf Coast of Florida, so wanted to try a Tampa cruise. We ... Read more

To be honest, as older cruisers with 50+ sailings over the years, we were a bit disappointed with the Anthem. We loved the Oasis and the Allure and look forward to the Harmony, but doubt that we would book a Quantum Class ship again. ... Read more

Let me start by saying that we were able to drive to the cruise port from our home in 1'40" which was a big draw in choosing this ship. I found an off site parking in Bayonne only 1.5 miles from the ship for a good bit less than ... Read more

We have been on over 50 cruises. We (my wife & myself) realize that cruising has changed, not always for the better. We are a young 70 year old couple living in New Jersey. We stayed at the Westin Hotel in Jersey City ... Read more

This was my fifth cruise with Royal Caribbean but my first departure from my home country, Australia. A quick taxi ride from the hotel in Brisbane got us to the port. Check in was relatively straightforward thanks to the benefit Crown ... Read more

Embarkation at Singapore was very busy as Sapphire Princess was also at the pier however within 30 or so minutes we were on board, being in a suite sped this process up. We have been on Mariner twice before so knew our way around and ... Read more

Day-time and Evening entertainment was very poor compared to what we are used to on other Cruise Ships. The service in the Dinning Room was not up to standard, we ended up eating in the Windjammer in the evening which is a first for us ... Read more

We were on this ship earlier in the year (last season) and so we knew what to expect; or at least we thought so because with a new cruise director, this one was incredibly different from the last one and not in a good way. After reading ... Read more

Having spent a great cruise in September on this ship we were really looking forward to this seven nighter in the Gulf. Check in was shambolic to say the least, evidently this was due in part to the Emirate ways rather than the usually ... Read more

About a week prior to embarking on our cruise on Legend of the Seas I decided to read some reviews. I was shocked to see it receive ratings of 1 and many many complaints. Those reviews completely dampened my enthusiasm for the cruise and ... Read more
