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

I am celebrating my 60th birthday this year, 2016, and the cruise was the first leg of a trip around the world. The cruise added great value to my trip and sharing the interior room with a buddy, made it even more affordable. We had ... Read more

* For a ship that just came out of dry dock and was supposed to have upgraded internet service - it was still very slow. * Shore Excursion - Alicante, Spain: Novelda & wine tasting - although our guide was very enthusiastic, he had ... Read more

An enjoyable TA. RCL can improve in a few areas: . . . . . hot tubs near to be HOT, . . . . menu items need to be accurately labeled (for example, tiger shrimp are not 2 inches long and Kailua drenched cake needs to have Kailua, etc. ), ... Read more

I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. The ship is in super condition except for the furniture which shows considerable wear and tear. In the Colony Club one of the rear facing windows is severely cracked from top to bottom. My cabin was ... 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

We chose this cruise as an inexpensive and fun way to get to Europe. The ship was older than previous TA cruises we've taken. We liked the smaller size of the ship because it was easier to learn our way around, and meant we bumped into ... Read more
