It was my first time taking a cruise and I had very high expectations from the review I received asking around about Royal Caribbean. As Hotel Managers in Miami, my friends and I had high hopes. The Check-In process to the boat was very ... Read more

In general, we found the ship is showing its age. Chairs in the Colony Club show a great deal of wear and tear, and there was a musty smell in the corridor, on deck 8 and on many others. The service and food was below standard on too ... Read more

This was the follow up cruise to our Atlantic crossing and it was a good choice. The Baltic itinerary was very busy compared to the crossing but there were no scheduled speakers, which would have been a plus to gain a better understanding ... Read more

First time cruise because spouse did not want to fly. The Rhapsody is the right size ship. Captain took a course avoiding rough water. Worst movement was no different than flying in turbulence. Really enjoyed talking to all the different ... Read more

Bermuda and Boston were places we hadn't visited. It was exciting to visit new places and the two day stay in Bermuda was especially nice. It gave us time to revisit our favorite beach and see places others recommended after their first ... Read more

The food was fabulous and the dining room is beautiful. The wait staff kept our meal going at the perfect pace. The 6 days at sea were relaxing except we had two days of 15 ft then 20 ft swells that can make you queasy. If I were to ... Read more

Embarkation in Miami was long and tedious, maneuvering the sea of people trying to get on board. My mother could not get her wheelchair as requested. There was a LONG line of people waiting, very few wheelchair attendants and no place to ... Read more

Stateroom 9300-excellent location. Chosen for its ports and price, both of which were good. We had sailed on this ship 1.5 years ago. In that time RCCL seems to be doing some cost cutting. Furnishings in lounge areas were showing ... Read more

Heard good things about RC, and had tried carnival, princess and Costa. Sadly RC failed to even match any of those on all levels. :-( Food was mediocre, and lacking in choice. Dining room food was consistently hot though, which is ... Read more

Keep in mind that this is just my second cruise and I am not exactly a "cruise person." The idea of taking multiple cruises every year makes no sense to me at all. Anyway, we signed up for this "repositioning cruise" ... Read more

RCI was tops in our cruise choices due to our prior experience. Now , it is below Holland and Princess. The reasons are the multitude changes that must be caused by the bean counters. Everything on the ship is offered at a price, the ... Read more

Low cost for Transatlantic and an invite from friends drove us to choose this cruise but 8 days crossing with mostly high winds and cloudy skies dampened our enthusiasm, Royal Caribbean did nothing to plan alternate indoor events for us. ... Read more

Never tried a trans-Atlantic crossing before. If you don't want to be on the water for 8 straight days, this isn't the cruise for you! That said, it was relaxing and enjoyable. Entertainment and food were great. Diamond lounge was ... Read more

I have no complaints about the cruise portion of this trip, but was disappointed with the hotel overcharges arranged by AIR2SEA, Royal Caribbean's partner. I was charged $513.72 for a two night stay in Barcelona, but was quoted a price of ... Read more

We took this TA ( our 4th TA) because of the ports and cost. We had a balcony on Deck 8 which was spacious and more storage than we expected. Our CRuiseCritic roll call was very active and we participated in many events through the cruise, ... Read more

We like cruises with more sea days and less ports. Transatlantic is perfect for that. We had 8 days at sea and we really enjoyed that. There was a great band on the ship so we danced almost every night. The Ice Skating show was excellent. ... Read more
