We knew this was an older ship, but the price was right and the ports of call were interesting. Also, we've been on the mega ships and are a bit tired of the floating malls. We were looking forward to enjoy the real cruise feeling of the ... Read more

Having a home in England and a winter home in Florida we always cruise both both ways, in November and April. Usually the cruise lines try to make this repositioning cruise special but from the moment we boarded it had the feeling of a ... Read more

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

This was our second transatlantic on RCI. In comparing to our last RCI transatlantic on Mariner OTS in 2013, we noticed quite a few changes......some not for the better. OVERALL: Just average. No WOW factor that Royal uses in their ... 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

We chose this cruise because of friends that were also booked. If not for these friends and new ones we met it would be hard to find many positive comments other than the crew members. The flight to Boston was a breeze as was the taxi ... 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
