We chose this cruise for its dates and the stop in Boston during which I would have had the opportunity to meet for lunch there with family members living in Rhode island. We are thankful for all the perks that our diamond status ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers but this was our first Transatlantic. There were well over 700 Diamond Members on this cruise. They were more than willing to share their extensive cruise experiences, best ports of call and travel tips. ... Read more

Great Transatlantic cruise, nice ports of call, beautiful refurbished ship. Food in main dining room sub-par, though, and disappointing. Super, good-sized room, very clean. Calm seas, and warm temperatures, especially for November, would ... Read more

5 other transatlantic voyages on Royal Caribbean and this was by far the most disappointing. First, the food was exceptionally bland and tasteless in both the main dining rooms and the Jade and Windjammer, surprisingly even the Indian ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic and generally we enjoyed it. However it didn't start too smoothly as once onboard we noticed our sea passes were endorsed as Emerald and not Diamond as they should have been. Having seen the C&A manager ... Read more

We prefer re-positioning cruises for their normally unique itineraries and they are normally more than the standard 7 day adventures. This cruise embarkation was in Boston which is only an hour flight from Toronto so we could fly out and ... Read more

We first sailed on the Independence during its inaugural season in 2008, and the recently completed Transatlantic was our first time back on the ship. She has stood the time well. Maybe a little rust here and there and some of the ... Read more

Overall we really liked the ship. Some nice improvements were the showers, as a plus sized woman, it was nice to have a shower that was easier to maneuver inside, the addition of the shaver bar was nice as well . We felt the room had more ... Read more

Great Entertainment. See all the shows but book online before your cruise and still arrive 30-45 minutes early for best seats. Great Speciality Restaurants. Buy the package before you cruise online. Main Dining Room. Crowded, slow ... Read more

Recently we have booked most of our cruises based on the ship. We love both the Quantum Class and the Oasis Class ships. A cruise on another type of ship to us is now boring. The Harmony of the Seas is terrific. She is beautiful. ... Read more

Transatlantics are best value especially when booked early. Cabin had creaking metal overhead which made it difficult to sleep. Otherwise the cabin was fine. Room attendant was very pleasant and efficient. Johnny Rockets was best for ... Read more
