We did lots of research on the internet before making a decision to go cruising and found one, (ie Singapore to Fremantle) that suited us. There was trepidation about being on such a large ship with so many fellow passemgers but this soon ... Read more

Do NOT buy internet - it is not unlimited access, it is hit and miss more miss than hit no matter which way you purchase it. The staff do not care at all that the internet product is not fit for purpose. The prices on this ship are ... Read more

This was a repositioning cruise as this ship moves it's homeport from Newark to Galveston. A nice, primarily Eastern Caribbean itinerary with Curacao and Grand Cayman as well. Most of the passengers had flown to New York from Texas, but ... Read more

Amazing stress free cruise! My husband and I booked a guaranteed inside (the cheapest available) and ended up in room 8013. Being on the 8th deck and right below the pool bar area we thought it was going to be noisy, but it wasn't. The ... Read more

This was our 8th TA with RCL/Celebrity and with the exception of what can only be described as the most diabolical Wi Wi system and very poor immigration arrangements in Tampa, my wife and I had a great cruise, if not quite, an exceptional ... Read more

As a frequent cruiser, we have come to expect certain niceties when we board a ship. We took the maiden voyage across the Atlantic on this ship and were very disappointed. So much so that we will never cruise Royal Caribbean again. To ... Read more

I have never written a cruise review before but there seems to be some huge variations in what people experienced i felt it only fair to forward our experiences. Our party consisted of my wife and I who have done about 10 cruises over ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze, but only because we were in a Jr. Suite and were able to skip the long lines. I believe being a US citizen (despite leaving from the UK), also made check-in faster. Since we completed everything online prior to ... Read more

Despite having taken many cruises this was my first time cruising with Royal Caribbean. Anthem of the Seas is a lovely ship, but I personally feel that it lacks something! (Fur coat and no knickers springs to mind). I'll start my review ... Read more

We are avid RC cruisers, only 3 of our last 12 (2013- present) have been on a different line. Pretty new ship but after only 6 months the cabins are pretty dirty already. Hallway carpeting looks 3 years old. Bad weather that is no ... Read more

This was not our first cruise but it was our first Royal Caribbean Cruise. We knew that we wanted something longer than 7 days. This was 13 days, a Repositioning Cruise. Initially we chose this particular cruise because it left out of ... Read more

Even though The Allure of the Seas Ship and employees were fantastic, the food and lack of headroom were below average! They promised me 7' 6" of headroom in our stateroom, we only had about 6' 9" of headroom. Being 7' 2" ... Read more

This was my fourth TransAtlantic in the past five years. After crossing from Sao Paulo to Lisbon on the Splendor of the Seas, I was looking forward to experiencing the "mega" ship. Our cabin was a balcony on the 8th floor which ... Read more

The Allure is a big ship and you need to be prepared for it when sold out like our cruise was. That said RC should not have made the venues so small for the amount of people on board. Time after time you could not get in to bars that ... Read more

This was my 3rd cruise ever. The first was a short Carnival Carnival cruise 10 years ago, then an 8 night this past January on the Independence of the Seas. I was slightly apprehensive about 11 nights at sea: would there be enough to do, ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Royal Caribbean and our first repositioning cruise. As Floridians, we usually sail from Jacksonville, Port Canaveral or Fort Lauderdale. We found the embarkation process in Boston to be fine. The port was ... Read more

We live in Fort Lauderdale and it's the home port for the Allure. Because of this, the ship gets a lot of publicity. We ordinarily don't like a ship this big, but we were curious. Several of our friends had sailed on her and raved about ... Read more

We have cruised on RCCL 25 times. We have taken 7 transatlantic cruises, 5 on RCCL and 2 on Celebrity. There were some wonderful things about the Allure and some disappointing aspects. Entertainment was spectacular. Best of any cruise we ... Read more
