Overall the cruise was great. The ship is dated but is a beautiful ship. Embarkation on first day was great. No issues at all. Food on ship was good. The buffet closed at 9pm which really wasn't good. If you have a late show, by the ... Read more

We chose this cruise basically for the price. It was very LOW!! So low, in fact, I called my Travel Agent to find out if we had to row!. There was a delay in the ship arriving to port so our embarkation was delayed. This led to a very ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic. The ports on this itinerary were ones we had never experienced before plus the price was pretty reasonable. We flew a red-eye from SFO to FLL, got to the terminal via taxi and no problems. We did not ... Read more

Our 2nd transatlantic cruise with RC. Will always try to travel to Europe this way instead of flying, which we find torture. We don't drink or take excursions as we find these very overpriced, but always enjoy our cruises. My wife ... Read more
