After reading Cruise Critic before our cruise I was very concerned we were taking our family on their first cruise and it would be a disaster. Don't believe all the negative comments about this ship. It turned out to be a wonderful ... Read more

First time on Radiance and it is a nice ship but is tired and needs to tidy up. Broken furniture in lounges and cracked floor tiles are common. The thick growth on the hull below the waterline (visible from the tender) was another ... Read more

I don't like writing negative reviews but RCCL really dropped the ball on this one. First time RCCL and the last. We've done nine cruises and this was the worst. Embarkment was slow we weren't able to board till 3.30, then it took 45 ... Read more

This year, we encouraged our children and grandchildren to join us on a Christmas cruise with Royal Caribbean on the Legend of the Seas. Fortunately for us, they are not seasoned ‘cruisers’ and everything was a new experience ... Read more

So like many others I was a bit nervous about reading negative reviews and I as pleasantly surprised - I think some people will never be happy. I travelled as a single and got the balcony as it was only room available booking at the ... Read more

It was our 3d cruise with RCI. Nice big ship with potentially a lot of fun. We paid a little bit more then $100 per night for the internal cabin. It certainly was value for money. The ship had 3920 passengers with 1200 kids. I believe most ... Read more

Was really looking forward to this cruise and wanted to enjoy it so much, unfortunately Royal Caribbean made it very hard to enjoy. I did the Carnival Spirit Melbourne Cup cruise just a couple months before this cruise so I could compare ... Read more

The cruise before ours had problems with Norovirus and storm damage, which meant that we were late boarding. We had been notified of this and boarding was uneventful and handled very well under the circumstances....thousands of people! ... Read more

Like most travellers I include forums and recent reviews in my pre-trip research. Given that this trip was to be shared with family and friends we were keen to get a true idea of what we might expect. Past experience has taught me that a ... Read more

Firstly I was quite dismayed when hearing about the negative reviews given to this ship for the 2 night sampler cruise before our 10 nighter. I know however that everyone has different expectations when they go on a cruise and I kept this ... Read more

First of all I was seriously fearing that this cruise was going to be far from fun. So many negative reports from other cruisers. We had a great time. I feel I owe you a balanced review because that's what I look for. Understand ... Read more

The ship is way too small for the amount of passengers, a lot of activities were held in the centrum which became very cramped, hot, and not enough seats! The service was terrible or should I say lack of! The prices were very high in the ... Read more

We were hesitant to book a cruise as we are fairly laid back travelers and not into dressing up for dinner and seeing shows and we thought we could be bored on the ship. But we had a great time we ate mostly in the Windjammer Buffet it was ... Read more

Royal Caribbean has really let itself down badly. No extras to make it a nice cruise...such as bottles of shampoo, lotions or shower caps, chocolates on bed. Ship geared towards children. All movies were children's movies except ... Read more
