I have been on many, many, many cruises, but never Royal Caribbean, or a 9 day cruise, so it was just a bucket list to do list... I bascially live in the tri-state area so exploring Jersey was not necessary. The embarkation and ...
I chose this cruise because it was an affordable, quick getaway as a solo traveler.
Embarkation and disembarkation were swift and uneventful. Even at embarkation those folks who weren't gold and up members didn't have a very long line ...
We are prior RC's Oasis and Freedom class cruisers, as well as Holland, Disney & Princess travelers. In summary, bigger is not always better. This sip is almost too big for its own good. Quality & consistency in service is lacking. ...
Where to start. Embarkation was a cattle call. Everyone waited for almost 2 hours even with assigned times. Purchases that were paid and were to be in the cabin, were not and I had to go to guest services and "prove" paid for ...
This was my first cruise and it was a wonderful experience. I tend to ramble, so bare with me. I'll try to put the most important part of my tips in the first sentence or two.
Tip #1 STATE ROOM I highly recommend an outside, ocean ...
I went on this particular cruise for a friends bachelor party. The reason I rate it a a four versus a three is I had an amazing time with my friends, but I have done this exact same cruise on NWC and Carnival so in cruising destinations it ...
We wanted to duplicate our honeymoon cruise some 21 years ago. We flew down to san Juan 2 days in advance to take in the sites in Old San Juan and to sample the local restaurants. (Pannes restaurant in the Coronado District was so good ...
As an avid solo cruise adventurer, this was my 9th cruise, leaving San Juan on 25 June 2016 on AoS. The ports of call were: St Maarten, Day at Sea, Bonaire, Aruba, Curacao, Day at Sea and then back to San Juan. I had only booked this ...
We just got back from our trip and as a first timer on Royal Caribbean, I was really hoping to be impressed by the ship, as I had heard good things about RCI.
Pros- Staff was lovely. They went over and beyond and always helpful. Crepes ...
First let me say that while I prefer the much larger Royal Caribbean ships, This was my 4th time on this one so I think I can fairly put this review together.
1. Best part of this ship ( as I have always said ) I find the crew to be ...
I originally booked the maiden cruise from Southampton to Barcelona long before they added the two 3 and 4 night preview cruises which I will review separately.
The contrast to the 3 and 4nt cruises was amazing, with most of the ...
Empress of the sea was not good, long lines for food even with reservation, this is first cruise I lost weight. There was a line for everything the food was like school cafeteria almost the same stuff served in buffet, the eating options ...
Right let’s get this straight,
The ship was 99.999% finished so everyone stop bloody moaning about everything. Get a life.
We did not have a problem with anything at all, sure people moan about something that will come back on ...
Overall we had a great experience.
The following staff did a commendable job in exceeding our expectations
- Suresh (Head Waiter)
- Savino (Waiter)
- Made (Waiter)
- Rosmidi (Waiter)
- Joel (Waiter - amazing)
This was our second cruise with Royal Caribbean. We loved our first cruise (Western Caribbean) and wanted to try some different ports and a bigger ship (we were on the Freedom class on our first one). We weren't too impressed with St. ...
This is the first time I have been on the Royal Caribbean. Nice ship. Our balcony was good and the room was clean. We met alot of interesting people from the eastern side, New York, Mass, VA, MD, FL, Canada of course. We had a lot of ...
This was my third RCL ship and my first Transatlantic crossing, I really have to say that it met all my expectations, Having just come back from a Baltic cruise on Norwegian as well, I give RCL higher points all around.
The ship is ...
We have just come back from the week long Mediterranean cruise on the RC Vision. I was a little hesitant with the trip as I had read so many bad reviews for this particular ship.
We went with another couple and I can honestly say apart ...
My 4th cruise with RC and first transatlantic.... I loved it! The room, the balcony, the staff service, friendliness and professionalism were all terrific. I thought room service, dining in the Windjammer and the Minstrel 4th floor and ...
Embarkation was amazingly quick and the red carpet treatment with the press into the cruise terminal was great fun. I was on Ovation within what seemed minutes. There were a few people who had stayed on from the 3 night cruise and said it ...
LIBERTY of the SEAS - April 10 -> 17, 2016 - Western Caribbean
Saturday, April 9, 2016 - Travel day
Good morning from beautiful downtown LAX. It is about 9:15am and my plane is set to take off at 10:55am. I’m actually kind ...
Fantastic cruise, As a solo cruiser it was the best ever, I met lots of solo women my age group, someone to dine with every night.
There was more than enough activities to keep me occupied even the eight days at sea
there was plenty ...
The itinerary, was a little unique, the ability to do an 8 day cruise, as opposed to a 'normally offered' 7 day cruise. I was interested in sailing with the Navigator, as I had sailed on this ship within the past 8 years. It 'supposedly' ...
We love the Enchantment. This was our third cruise on her and cannot wait to book another one. Maybe that is why we did not find any fault with this cruise. Embarkation was a breeze, on the ship within 30 minutes. Our rooms were ready ...
Navigator of the Seas – March 5th 2016 Sailing
My wife and I are seasoned cruisers and I have completed Cruise Critic entries of our past voyages, I certainly do not use this forum to criticize at least that is not my intent. I ...
