Of several TAs we have done over the years, this was one of the best. Our reasons were many: 1) So many nice touches were done for the passengers by the hotel director and other management, e.g. gift hats received, multiple raffles ... Read more

Starting in the beautiful city of Barcelona was lovely - spent three days prior to boarding exploring, enjoying the architecture, food and friendly people. Monday morning we walked to the Rambla flower stalls to find a bouquet for our ... Read more

Some areas of the ship are nice, such as the Schooner bar, the Colonny club, the theatre but seats in other areas are old fashioned and show age. The Atrium, where many activities took place is small, also, there is a bar there where night ... Read more

We booked this Transatlantic cruise while on the Allure Transatlantic last year. In Barcelona we stayed at the Ciutat del Prat hotel. Very convenient as they pick you up from the airport, provide a lovely breakfast, and take you to the ... Read more

This was our first 14 day trip and it was very good. From the excellent, fast embarkation in Barcelona to the speedy disembarkation in Tampa, rarely were we held up for things that Royal Caribbean could control. The service staff in ... Read more

Nice ship with attentive crew. Specialty restaurants, Chopps and Giovanni's were great as usual. We never eat in the dining room, as all we ever get is the 8:30 PM seating, so the alternatives are important. Windjammer and the afternoon ... Read more

I'll start right out with the negative: RCL wasn't quite "Brilliant" enough to completely contain the sewer gas. My cabin and a few hallways had a little too much smell for my, admittedly sensitive, nose. But this is a 4 out of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of its very different itinerary which included Copenhagen as a starting point, 2 ports in Norway, 3 in Iceland, Halifax, and, finally Boston. We had had such a wonderful first-time transAtlantic experience with ... Read more

Entertainment was excellent. Several service issues that needed to be addressed as there were a lot of new employees being trained on this sailing for Harmony of the Seas. Disappointed to see more increase in charges at specialty ... Read more

The Transatlantic cruise was smoother than I thought with an older ship. The cabin was very clean, just a complaint that on the 7th deck, you cannot see down to the water due to the roof on the lifeboats, which is not designated as even ... Read more

Iceland was the new destination. And it was great. Glad we went. We had an extra day in Copenhagen. However we had a bad screw-up with their air department. At this time I don't recommend using OVC air department. The hotel we ... Read more

We originally chose this cruise to see the Northern Lights & the Faroe Islands. The Northern lights were a bust (not the ship's fault) but the Faroe Islands were mysteriously cancelled by Royal with no explanation. The dining on the ... Read more

We choose this cruise because of the 4 days / 3 ports in Iceland and were not disappointed in our choice. The pre-cruise stay in Copenhagen was enjoyable and enjoyed the city tour and canal bout ride (arranged via Expedia) Even though ... Read more

This cruise was for my wife and I on our 25th wedding anniversary. Neither of us had ever traveled to Europe. This repositioning Trans-Atlantic Cruise seemed perfect, and for the most part it was. This was our second time on Royal ... Read more

I must commend the people who designed and built the boat... Bravo it is a beautiful boat. We were recently on a Transatlantic repositioning cruise. The operation of the cruise and the organizational weakness of the management was obvious ... Read more

This was our first experience with Royal Caribbean and it will be our last. We spoke with other passengers who were die hard "Royal" fans and they said that if this had been their first experience, they wouldn't be back. The ... Read more

We were on this ship in November and the difference was night and day. This trip was 14 days of total enjoyment for us. Again we had a balcony and the room was in very good condition and our cabin steward was terrific, taking care of all ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic cruise and I wasn't sure if we would get bored. But there was plenty to do including bridge lessons and bridge games. There were times that were disorganized such as going out on excursions and in the ... Read more

This was our first transatlantic cruise and it was wonderful. There were some minor issues which is why I can't give it a 5. I would give a 4.5 if I could however. There was plenty to do on the ship as they really did try to offer a ... Read more

We booked this trip mainly on the blowout price. $500 for a 13 night cruise in a decent cabin cant be beat. This was our first time with RCCL but we are seasoned cruisers having sailed with 5 other companies. This was out first and likely ... Read more
