This cruise was a last minute decision for us, based on a fantastic price for a Guaranteed Ocean view room. We ended up on Deck 2 Port side aft, which was quite a good position to minimise the effects of rough seas, as the area does not ... Read more

We really had a relaxing holiday. On a cruise there are many different tribes from our society and you soon find your niche make good friends, We spent a lot of time at the adults pool and because we travelled outside a holiday period we ... Read more

Have cruised before but this was the first with RCI. Boarding was relatively quick, which was a blessing given the rainy weather and the number of people boarding. We flew in to Sydney that morning and were able to drop off the bags ... Read more

We have Diamond status on RCL so we are not newbies. We have recently returned from a 10-day cruise to New Caledonia and just lost ten days out of lives that we will never get back again. This cruise was an absolutely terrible ... Read more

Everything ran very smoothly whic is usual with RCI. We had a great time with nothing to complain about. If I had to be picky I'd say the entertainment was a little light on this sailing. We had mainly comedians and magicians. The saving ... Read more

Voyager of the seas, 21st Feb 2017 Average at best, this was the largest ship we have been on and will now go back to smaller ships. Even though the ship is larger than Radiance/Solstice/Carnival the layout seams cramped in places and ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we liked the itinerary and were expecting amazing things with a 5 star cruise ship. It was good and we had fun but we couldn't help compare certain aspects to other cruise ships we have been on. The entertainment ... Read more

This was our first cruise, 8 days to the south pacific. Being a first cruise we have nothing to compare it to, but we were so happy with every part of the 8 days. It was an awful day in Sydney for embarkation, and having being told our ... Read more

Ship was very stable so no seasickness. Cabin was spacious with more than enough storage room. Cabin steward couldn't have been more helpful. Dining room food was pretty good and the staff again were very helpful. I wouldn't bother with ... Read more

I found the whole Cruise to be exceptional. I have sailed on 17 cruises including 5 with RCI. The only negative that l would have, is the lack of entertainment when leaving ports. When you have hundreds of people around the deck and pool ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise with RCI and probably our last for some time. It was a 10 night voyage to the South Pacific on 4/02/17. We have been Diamond members and in our early fifties. We like a drink and love the cruising experience. ... Read more

Overall the cruise was great . The ship is well designed and the staff are wonderful . As an Elite member of Princess , maybe it's me , but I got the feeling that Royal were catering for a younger demographic than myself . Belly flop ... 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

Boarded this cruise with no hassles, we checked in just after 10.50 am and were sitting down to lunch in the Windjammer by 11.30 am. The food in the windjammer buffet was very good and had a great selection to choose from, this ... Read more

Legend of the Seas Review. In this review I’ll focus on the ship facilities and service. I also didn’t use the pool, spas, gym or set foot in the Day Spa. Not my scene (others can comment). By way of background, this is ... Read more

Overall cruise was very good. Stewards great, food good (mostly, Chops was a let down - too much pomp, not enough substance - and Izumi was deplorable - and had run out of things). Much of the entertainment was naff, and aimed at old ... Read more

First up, will say that we are pretty loyal to RCL and have cruised on this ship and her sister, Voyager, 3 times now. But for the first time, felt that the ship was over run by way to many mid to late teen bogans!! In the ... Read more

I chose RC because my husband was taking me to celebrate my 60th birthday. We thought as it was supposed to be a higher ranked cruise line that there would be a bit of luxury and not a lot of kids considering the cruise arrived back in ... Read more

This was our 7th cruise & the 3rd with Royal Caribbean. This is quite an in depth review but worth reading if you are a first time cruiser or want the ins and outs of cruising. We did the 12 day south pacific cruise from Sydney on ... Read more

Embarkation at Sydney was smooth considering approximately 4000 passengers. Room was available at 1.30pm. Entering the ship was amazing with the "promenade" - shops, bar, cafe running down the centre of the ship. Staff ... Read more

I know it was school holidays but this cruise was ridiculous. Families bringing their kids into the adults pool and the staff ignored it. Kids riding elevators from day 2 on. The Ice Show was excellent again and the Production Shows were ... Read more
