Central Park on the Allure (and Oasis) is a nice place to relax and 'chill' while listening to the bird calls and taking in the beautiful 'grounds' of live plants and trees. The Rising Tides Bar didn't always keep its posted schedule. I ... Read more

We booked this cruise while on another cruise back in 2015, so we had plenty of time to read reviews, and to plan accordingly. We are fairly frequent cruisers (Diamond Plus with Crown & Anchor Society) so we had a pretty good idea ... Read more

Food was absolutely disgusting. Presentation was poor and looked like a five year old had put something on a plate. No consistency. We would order the same dish and it looked completely different. The shows were not that great ... Read more

We were excited to share the experience of what a big ship and the biggest to Australian/New Zealand waters would be like. The ship it’s self is beautiful, huge, new hi-tech, very impressive. Embarkation and disembarking went ... Read more

This was my 13th cruise with Royal and what a disappointment. -Windjammer is disgusting. The tongs that you grab your food with are all greasy and oily. There aren't as many choices as there use to be. The windjammer has no change, ... Read more

Excellent experience for a short time cruise, especially for us, Canadian people coming from Montreal. The price they offer for this cruise was really interesting when you consider the balcony room offered. The crew for the balcony room ... Read more

I wanted to sail on Ovation of the Seas because of her size and the fact I could sail from Fremantle to Sydney. So I needed to book through the charter company's agent. We had chosen a balcony cabin but misinterpreted the 2 or 1 cabin ... Read more

We wanted to try a big ship and were delighted to get a last-minute discounted booking sailing from Perth to Adelaide. Embarkation was a nightmare. The online cruise planner offered departure times by deck and the option to select ... Read more

Thought it would be good to experience a short duration cruise on a new mega-ship after previous cruises on older and smaller ships. Cruise Director Joff Eaton was superb and the technology used throughout the ship was amazing. We had ... Read more

Windjammer food quality On this trip, we encountered the worst food quality and variety of all the cruises we have done on Royal Caribbean. Most times the food was a repeat, as if the kitchen had a fixed boring menu. Food had no ... Read more

This is a great ship to go cruising on and we have just completed a sector from Singapore to Fremantle. We had a large ocean view stateroom that was spacious and more than we had anticipated. Entertainment was of a very good standard and ... Read more
