We just completed a ten day cruise on the Explorer of the Seas to the South Pacific in November 2016. We purchased the cruise on the price as we tend to chase cruises that are under $100 per day. As we had been to the Pacific Islands, the ... Read more

Where to start - lovely ship, shame about the lack of customer service and operational expertise. Have cruised with RC a number of times before this last trip - but am very doubtful I will do it again. It wasn't a good start when RC ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we were traveling with first timers who didn't want to commit to anything longer. On a ship the size of Voyager 7 days just isn't enough. Embarkation in Sydney was a breeze. From baggage drop off to cabin took ... Read more

Having previously sailed twice on Rhapsody of the Seas we thought we would give a larger ship a go. Certainly things get busy at popular times, but generally we didn't have any trouble doing any of the activities on board or getting ... Read more

The ship itself, Legend of the Seas, was very nice. All looked in good order, and the public areas were always clean and tidy. Check-in was swift; this time, we packed bathers in our carry-on so that we could have a swim in the time ... Read more

It was a last minute decision to sail on Legend of the Seas. Friends of our were already booked and asked us if we'd be interested in going. That was in February, not quite 2 months out from the sail date. So, we scoured what few ... Read more
