1. Bath room was equipped with a bottle of soap only and no bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body lotions which even 3-star hotels have. 2. No a single lobster tail was served all through the 13-day cruise. This is supposed to be a ... Read more

This cruise was a disappointment. We docked at Boston at 8am. This was our first stop so customs officers boarded for everybody to clear customs. An estimated time was allocated and we patiently waited for our call around 10.30. The ... 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

No activities during the day, No exercise, dance or yoga classes. Only trivia, if you like trivia. RCCL trivia scheduled for 5:00 pm which interferes with guests dressing for dinner. Items in Cruise Compass so very hard to read ... Read more

I have been on the sister ship Splendor and now this one...the design is to turn everything inwards to a four story strip mall where everyone congregates because its too cold or wet or both to be on deck. This makes the ship seem very ... Read more

With the exception of the nightly shows, we did not take part in any of the ship's activities but the activities arranged with our CC friends kept us busy. We held a cabin crawl, slot pull, luncheon and gift exchange, LCR and game days, ... 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 in order to sail with friends we had met on our previous Trans-Atlantic. After four days in London, we arrived in Southampton by train and we were at the port within ten minutes. Embarkation was quick and we were ... 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

Boarding at Southampton was a dream compared to US ports, super-efficient, but that seemed to be the end of the good times. The cabin was clean and mostly worked though the shower had to be turned well past the red protective button to ... 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

This was our first transatlantic cruise and it won't be our last. While it wasn't our favorite cruise to date, it was a thoroughly enjoyable time. Embarkation was a breeze. In fact, we were able to board early due to the fact that the ... Read more

We first sailed on the Independence during its inaugural season in 2008, and the recently completed Transatlantic was our first time back on the ship. She has stood the time well. Maybe a little rust here and there and some of the ... Read more

Overall we really liked the ship. Some nice improvements were the showers, as a plus sized woman, it was nice to have a shower that was easier to maneuver inside, the addition of the shaver bar was nice as well . We felt the room had more ... Read more

Great Entertainment. See all the shows but book online before your cruise and still arrive 30-45 minutes early for best seats. Great Speciality Restaurants. Buy the package before you cruise online. Main Dining Room. Crowded, slow ... Read more

Recently we have booked most of our cruises based on the ship. We love both the Quantum Class and the Oasis Class ships. A cruise on another type of ship to us is now boring. The Harmony of the Seas is terrific. She is beautiful. ... Read more
