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

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

I chose this cruise on the recommendation of a friend, that I was travelling with who had used Royal Caribbean many times. One the website the ship looked good and had plenty of facilities. The stateroom was dirty and shabby, the linen ... 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

This was our fourth RCI cruise, first on Explorer, and it didn’t disappoint. Embarkation/disembarkation was quick and easy in Sydney. We’d dropped our bags off early and gone for a walk around Circular Quay, then boarded ... Read more

Being our first cruise, my wife & I were both very apprehensive as to what to expect. Travelling with 4 kids aged from 8 to 16, this added a further element of uncertainty. After speaking with friends whom had been on cruises, the ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for the itinerary and the experience of sailing on a Royal Caribbean Ship. We were lucky to book one of the new Panoramic Oceanview Family cabins. They are wonderfully positioned above the bridge with six huge ... Read more

We chose to do this cruise as it was for New Year and departure port was Brisbane. We also knew before we travelled that the ship had been sold, which made us think some things would be neglected. The ship appeared to be clean and ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise with any company and it has put me off any future sailing with RC. I went on board with an open mind after reading many poor reviews about this ship. Unfortunately, most negatives were confirmed. Too ... Read more

*I purchased the drink package but unfortunately I found that it was frustrating to try and get service from any of the bars on the ship, partly due to the lack of attention from the bar staff and also due to understaffing of the bars. For ... Read more
