Great Ship, not a great cruise

We sailed on 12/30/21 for 9 days to the Eastern Caribbean. The Allure of the Seas is a great ship and I know Royal Caribbean is doing everything they can to make your cruise enjoyable but COVID has presented a lot of challenges for them. We were suppose to go to San Juan, Puerto and St. Thomas but we did not go to those ports because of COVID. Instead we had a 2 day stop in St. Martin. One of the ...

We were first-time cruisers. We did not know what to expect. Upon embarking we believed RCCL was a well-oiled machine. The check-in process of vaccine and negative test checking was efficient. Once on the ship, we were amazed at how beautiful Deck 5 was. The cabin was clean and our luggage came very quickly. We ate lunch and settled in. We had a several-hour delay in leaving the port that ...

(Royal Caribbean Diamond Plus with 30+ cruises on RCL) We booked this cruise 6 days before the sail date of 11 December, 2021. Booked a large balcony cabin and very surprised to find one available and the reasonable price so close to departure Once on board it became obvious why. They were excited to get 4200 people, the highest number since the shutdown, on board a ship with a capacity of ...

I rely almost 100% on reviews for every trip I take, so I'm paying it forward by giving as concise a review of this cruise that I can for others. We didn't choose this cruise, the couple we sailed with did. We didn't think we'd like a ship this massive, but we were pleasantly surprised. Never felt crowded, even with over 4K aboard. Never had to wait for an elevator and rarely had to wait in ...

Been on this ship several times before. I am a Diamond Member. Eliminating the daily newsletter ( The Compass) was ridiculous. This was an 8 day cruise and the same 2 performers remained on the ship for the full 8 days repeating their same act. Love and Marriage game was hysterical. However, they just gave every contestant a cheap bottle of champagne. The drinks were all watered down. In ...

Not What I Had Expected from RCCL

We hadn't sailed on RCCL in many years so were looking forward to sailing with them again. We treated our son and his wife to a cruise and all were excited. However, I have not decided when I will book another cruise. I had no problem with covid protocols and wearing masks. RCCL was up front about it and did their best to enforce it. We all know some people think rules are for everyone but ...

Used up a cruise credit from 2019 that RCCL would not extend, even though they canceled 2 I had booked. Even though I had a frustrating experience with them pre cruise. I was looking forward to this cruise. The crowding and waiting started at the airport as I had to wait 45 minutes for their shuttle, causing me to arrive at the port at 2 pm to absolute chaos. Luggage everywhere and a lineup that ...

I was on the Allure of the Seas on my Honeymoon with my wife on 11/14/2021 and all my wife wanted to do in St.Maarten was go on the excursion we paid for which was horseback riding. There was nothing on the website when we booked the reservation that there was a weight limit of 200 pounds and it was in error on Royal Caribbean website and we were not allowed to go. Also My wife and I are in ...

Long time traveler on royal. Diamond plus. Signature at casino royale. Ship less than 1/2 capacity. So not crowded. Staff excellent especially in coastal kitchen, suite lounge, solarium restaurant, and windjammer. Staff made guests feel welcome. Cabin attendant was excellent. Kept room perfect stocked with ice. Casino was the opposite. Slots not paying off. Worse than any ...
