This was my first crossing even though I have done numerous previous cruises throughout the world. There were a large number of people who had done many crossings. Most of them agreed that this was either rougher than previous ones or ... Read more

Have been on 3 Royal Caribbean Cruises. Took almost an hour to board the ship. Cabin was neat and clean but had noise issues that they could not repair. The wood panels in the back of the room at the head of the bed would rub and make a ... Read more

I love the sea days found on Transatlantics and many of the ports on their itineraries are wonderful, too. As the Radiance class ship is unquestionably my favorite class of ship, I was pleased to give the Serenade of the Seas a try on a ... Read more

CD Carly B and her Activites Manger Grant kept us busy and informed. When the ship missed LeHarve due to French workers strike, we went to Dover and the ship provided free bus service to the train station, town center and the castle, Well ... Read more

The cruise got off to a rather rocky start as we sat in the embarkation lounge for 3 hours before being able to board. I have never had to wait this long and no reason was ever given by RCCL. This is unacceptable. The ship is clean ... Read more

I, and many others felt that Royal Caribbean has gone downhill. We are Diamond members, and are disappointed to feel this way. The reasons include: 1 - there were limited activities for us to participate in (especially on sea days, which ... Read more

We had always wanted to spend time at sea. We heard about repositioning cruises and chose this one. We had no idea what to expect and were absolutely delighted with certain aspects of the cruise. We did not expect the ... Read more

4th time on Brilliance. Solarium is still awesome..... The Centrum was much more fully utilized than previously..... without the Promenade, this use of the Centrum worked well. Windjammer was top-notch.... No better casual dining at sea ... Read more

Many years ago I had my first and last cruise on Royal C. -- an unpleasant one. Since then I've become a fan of Holland America and Celebrity, so most of my baseline in writing this review will reference those experiences. We always ... Read more

We normally cross the pond on Celebrity but thought we would go on the Royal Caribbean (RC) Independence of the Seas as the itinerary went through the Caribbean. A big mistake! First the pluses: It is a lovely ship. The cabin was ... Read more

We had a great time on what is essentially two cruises in one, through the Eastern Caribbean and then across the Atlantic to Southampton. The suite was spacious and well kept, the food was OK, the dining room service was great, the ports ... Read more

Transatlantic 2 weeks. Ship is well cared-for, and crew everywhere were friendly and cordial. Ship is very clean, and there were people everywhere wiping the surfaces. There is evidence of thrift in the Windjammer, where cold cuts ... Read more

Having cruised previously with P&O, NCL, and even Carnival, we had high expectation of RCS after reading so many good reviews of the line. While some aspects were very good there were a combination of things that only served to ... Read more

We decided to do this cruise because it visited 5 Caribbean islands prior to crossing the Atlantic, opposed to doing the crossing, then visiting places in Europe. From the Captain down, ( longest serving Captain in the fleet ),all crew ... Read more

We chose this 15 day transatlantic cruise from Florida to Europe for its relaxing sea days and sunny Caribbean ports. Our ocean view cabin gave us a view of the fabulous weather and brilliant ports we entered. The food was equally good in ... Read more

We knew this was an older ship, but the price was right and the ports of call were interesting. Also, we've been on the mega ships and are a bit tired of the floating malls. We were looking forward to enjoy the real cruise feeling of the ... Read more

I've been cruising (mostly solo) for 7 years now but this was my first time on RCI. Sadly on reaching our first US port after a week at sea, there was an ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS immigration process which resulted in me and many other non-US ... Read more

We sailed in October on the Navigator, and hoped this cruise would be an improvement. We had been looking forward to this cruise particularly visiting Boston which neither of us had been to. We usually have an inside cabin but on this ... Read more

We have cruised on RCCL for many years and although have not reached pinnacle status, we have 500+ points. We were extremely disappointed with the disorganization we observed during this cruise. The debacle in Boston was unforgivable and ... Read more
