Excellent experience for a short time cruise, especially for us, Canadian people coming from Montreal. The price they offer for this cruise was really interesting when you consider the balcony room offered. The crew for the balcony room ... Read more

This cruise had three ports of call that were new to us. Empress has recently been recommissioned and has many beautiful upgrades. The ship was built in the late 1980's. The theater was the best of any cruise ship we have been on. The ... Read more

Due to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, none of the larger ships can use the Tampa Port. The ship was clean, room was nice and the cabin attendant, waiter were very attentive and made every effort to help. Shirley in the Casino was always ... Read more

It's a relaxing, enjoyable ship. Not crowded at all, elevators always seem available and seats available in the Windjammer. During our cruise, there was no formal night in the MDR. The only concern we had, was a freezing cold AC system, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we got it free through the casino. I had been warned that the plumbing clogged up and the rooms we warm. We boarded the ship as soon as they let us on. The boarding process was very easy. We are platinum on ... Read more

We started with a virtual balcony stateroom, the technology for this live stream "balcony" is amazing but the room felt claustrophobic and it doesnt replace the fresh air and personal space we value in a real balcony so we ... Read more

My wife and I just got off an 8 nighter on Legend, this was last minute decision as a very good rate became available. We had previously sailed on her in 2013 from Singapore to Dubai and had enjoyed the cruise. We had opted for a balcony ... Read more

Chose this cruise because we are both Diamond members of RCCL. We like the cruise line. Excellent service all around. Cruising from Galveston is near our homes and when we disembark we are less than 30 minutes from home. No airline ... Read more

We have been on many RCI ships but this is the first time for us on Oasis. We had mixed expectations - good and not so good - but we were pleasantly surprised at how our biggest fear was unfounded. With over 5,000 passengers we expected ... Read more

we were with a group of 252 Disney fans. It was difficult to handle a group that large. Having sailed Disney a lot it was hard not to compare. Quality of food on Disney in standard dining rooms was far greater than RC. RC seems to be ... Read more

Been on many many RCCL cruises and have really never been disappointed. I guess the disappointment comes mainly from the menu in the MDR. First 3 days were boring. Nothing really wowed me. The final 2 days were better and saved the ... Read more

For my first cruise the 13 night was a good length to find out what cruising is all about. I shared a promenade cabin with work mate. The cabin a good size for two older women and had a good view of the promenade for people watching ... Read more

We did book this cruise because of its departure date and itinerary were compatible with a preceding Princess cruise to New Zealand. Although we knew from previews that the atmosphere would be more like a party ship (what we do not ... Read more

Chose for a quick get away at a very good rate. Basic inside and outside rooms are too small for the bed. You must climb over to get on it. Frame and mattress were worn and uncomfortable. Room was not maintained. Worst was the cheap ... Read more

especially enjoyed the decadent solarium. Didn't like that people were saving seats with their towels for most of the day, especially on sea days. The ship was very clean, staff friendly and helpful. The stateroom with the virtual ... Read more

Had never been to the Southern Caribbean before and it was a new ship. One destination was cancelled and changed to another port ( which was ok) but they arrived there on a Sunday and everything was closed! Total waste of time! This port ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the destination, the time of year and the cost. The food in the dining room is excellent. This ship has too many activities for me to list. If you or your children like lots of activity, this is a good ... Read more
