Everything about the cruise was above our expectations. The food in the Windjammer buffet style and Main Dining Room was excellent along with very good staff. Our Ocean View State Room #2544 was more than adequate and we had no ... Read more

We chose it for a group trip as it had an interesting itinerary and a good price. The only port-stop we had been to before was Piraeus last year so went to Cape Sounion this time as we had seen Athens that time. Overall a great ship with ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary- Greek Isles. The ports were all fine with the exception of Argostoli- otherwise known as Kefalonia. Town is a short walk from docks. This is where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed. Beach is ... Read more

In general, the cruise was very good. But it seems Royal Caribbean is trying to save every penny and trying to make you buy everything they offer. It got to the level of disturbance the frequence with which we were approached by the staff ... Read more

We chose this cruise by destinations, which were Venice, Dubrovnik, Ephesus (Kusadasi), Santorini and Olympia (Kathakolon). All those 5 were on our "bucket list" of must visit places, so this schedule fitted perfectly. The time ... Read more

The crew was incredible, just incredible. The food was above average, but even in the dining room, there was very little that made me say "Wow". In fact, had we not enjoyed our table mates so much, I may have eaten at the ... Read more

My wife and I choose this cruise for its itinerary. One of the stops was Santorini, Greece; a destination on her bucket list. We sailed on the Rhapsody in 2012 and were familiar with the ship layout and size. We were a bit hesitant to ... Read more

I must state at the out start, that although I say we cruised for 14 nights, we did a back to back cruise of 7 nights each. We are fairly experienced cruisers, being Diamond Plus members, so have some insight as to the cruising life. Not ... Read more

The itinerary was terrific for the price we paid, with 8 ports of call in 11 days. One disappointment was that we had only an afternoon in Venice before disembarking. We did not notice that the ship was only due to dock at 3 pm and had ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we had no idea of what to expect. We got to Venice early on the day of departure, so we took the People Mover into Venice for the day. We got back to the port around 1:30, and had a short wait to check in. ... Read more

Booked this cruise for the itinerary. As we were touring Spain prior to the cruise, we decided to treat ourselves to a Junior Suite, to get a few extras and space. We were pleased with the suite, however the location deck 8 was right under ... Read more

We are Diamond with RCCL and booked this cruise specifically for the itinerary which exceeded our expectations. So much so that we will definitely have to come back and do a land base tour of many of the islands because we just didn't have ... Read more
