5 night maiden voyage with my cousin. I am an Indy fan. From parking car to check in to boarding to holding a glass of champagne on board saying wow to myself 10-15 mins. I boarded onto Royal Esplanade and just said 'wow'. Ovation of ... Read more

We boarded in Barcelona on a Transatlantic to Brazil. To start applying for the Brazilian Visa was a big hassle which took over 3 weeks to finalize. Boarding process was not too bad but there were a lot of confusion at the beginning. ... Read more

Four years ago my husband and I took a repositioning cruise on RCCL's Vision of the Seas, from Rio to Lisbon. We had such a relaxing, wonderful time that this year we decided to repeat the experience, and take the repositioning cruise ... Read more

This was the 3rd RCI cruise of the year for my wife and I, the others were on the Allure and the Explorer. We were concerned that this Vision class ship might be too small in comparison to the others and we were a bit concerned as to how ... 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

We sailed twice on Celebrity Reflection from Rome to Miami so we were ready to explore a new ship. This was our first Oasis class, and we were not disappointed with the ship as a destination on our Westbound Transatlantic from Barcelona on ... Read more

Like others, we were also NOT "WOWed" by this cruise.Embarkation was the high point of the trip! Once on-board, the front-line service personnel (from waiters to bar tenders to cabin stewards) were very nice & seemed quite ... Read more

I live by the adage any cruise is better than none and nothing beats a transatlantic. I cruise with my best friend on a 15 night transatlantic on Vision. Vision is an older ship and small. Our flight booked through ChoiceAir was great ... 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

We were very excited about our transatlantic cruise when we arrived at check in we were asked to sit in a section with no explanation. I asked some staff and they did not know it was a very long wait and not the best start. Once on board ... 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

Our first cruise with RCCL and likely our last as there were too many disappointments. A trans-Atlantic itinerary with no port calls so the ship was the destination. We chose this sailing as it fit the rest of our schedule or a European ... 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

This was our first Royal Caribbean cruise having only ever cruised with Cunard on numerous trips. We have done the Transatlantic cruise on Queen Victoria and Queen Mary so have two comparisons. Our first impressions were indeed wow and our ... Read more

I have been a loyal Royal Caribbean cruiser for over a decade. This was my first transatlantic sailing and my first sailing on a Quantum-class vessel. I had read reviews and had spoken with others who had cruised on Quantum when she was ... Read more

As a Loyal to Royal Cruiser having sailed all the classes of their ship, the Anthem is a cut above. The venues, were all top shelf. The food, especially at the Windjammer and four no added costs restaurants, Chic, Grande, Silk and ... Read more

Where do i begin? From the chaos of not organising the coaches effectively taking us to / from the ship, to failing to top up the soft drinks for days on certain machines, to failing to clean slippery spills in a restaurant completely when ... 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

Overall I had a good cruise with lots of friends onboard. I had a Balcony Cabin on Deck 11 near the forward elevators. My first full morning I went to walk on the walking/jogging track (great). I turned left from my cabin and could not ... 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
