RCI was tops in our cruise choices due to our prior experience. Now , it is below Holland and Princess. The reasons are the multitude changes that must be caused by the bean counters. Everything on the ship is offered at a price, the ... Read more

The price was very good, the repositioning cruise is always longer, which we like. The ship was new to us and most ports we had never visited. We like to do different ships, ports and adventures. We arrived in Ft. Lauderdale late the ... Read more

Low cost for Transatlantic and an invite from friends drove us to choose this cruise but 8 days crossing with mostly high winds and cloudy skies dampened our enthusiasm, Royal Caribbean did nothing to plan alternate indoor events for us. ... Read more

Never tried a trans-Atlantic crossing before. If you don't want to be on the water for 8 straight days, this isn't the cruise for you! That said, it was relaxing and enjoyable. Entertainment and food were great. Diamond lounge was ... Read more

This was my first transatlantic ever and from start to finish the cruise was simply awesome. Arrived at the port just a little before 11 and was on the ship an hour later. It would have been faster, but they experienced some computer ... Read more

I have no complaints about the cruise portion of this trip, but was disappointed with the hotel overcharges arranged by AIR2SEA, Royal Caribbean's partner. I was charged $513.72 for a two night stay in Barcelona, but was quoted a price of ... Read more

We took this TA ( our 4th TA) because of the ports and cost. We had a balcony on Deck 8 which was spacious and more storage than we expected. Our CRuiseCritic roll call was very active and we participated in many events through the cruise, ... Read more

We like cruises with more sea days and less ports. Transatlantic is perfect for that. We had 8 days at sea and we really enjoyed that. There was a great band on the ship so we danced almost every night. The Ice Skating show was excellent. ... Read more

Love Transatlantic Cruises, we chose this itinerary for the ports and 8 days at sea, there is nothing better than being in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean with no commitments. Unfortunately RCI missed the point on this cruise by far. The ... Read more
