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

My family and I are frequent cruisers and have sailed in the past with Royal Caribbean, Princess and Celebrity. When we saw that the brand new Ovation of the Seas was coming to Australia, we jumped at the opportunity to travel on the ... 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

We stayed in a balcony cabin and the room was nice but there were holes in the walls covered with stickers and the pillows were flat but as i read the recommendation from another cruiser i brought my own. The food on board was quite ... 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

This was our first group and it also was my family's first time out of Australian waters. Part of the reason why we chose this cruise was that it was not too long but at the same time not too short. getting to the cruise was easy, just ... 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 was our first RCI cruise, and we would do one again with them, but not in school holidays. On a ship carrying 3,500 passengers, approximately 1,000 were under 18, and they were everywhere. Even into the evening, you would find young ... 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

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

This was our fifth cruise second on royal Caribbean and first on Voyager class. Overall impressions very I fluenced by the crowded nature of the New Years cruise. Felt. Bit like being in Bali with drunken Aussies sometimes. Long waits for ... 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

Royal Caribbean do run nice ships. We've been on a number of their cruises now. Decided to try a Xmas and New Year cruise out of Sydney. All very jolly but considering the premium price we paid for the particular cruise it really wasn't ... Read more

This was not a pleasant cruise. The ship was old and resembled a 1980's RSL club in need of a refit. The food in the main dining room was mostly terrible - weird combinations, not served hot, poor presentation and lacking love. Despite ... Read more
