2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

I expected a lot of activities going on all the time since the ship is so big, yet the majority of the floors are for cabins, leaving not a ton of public space for the 6,000+ passengers onboard. Buffet, shows, pool, jacuzzi, everything is jam packed of people. There's a line to get breakfast in the morning and to do any of the activities (wave rider, rock climbing wall, zipline, ect). Each port is ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was our third transatlantic cruise, the first two having been with Celebrity on their Millennium and Century. Using that experience as a standard, this cruise did not quite measure up. It could be that RC is doing some product differentiation, allowing its Royal Caribbean brand to slide, while promoting its Celebrity brand as their 'premium' cruise line. Or, it could be that the very large ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Since we're from the UK, we flew from London to Barcelona (booked our own tickets). We were travelling with friends. The taxi from BCN to the harbour was about 20 minutes and I think it cost about €30. From there, we checked in - queued for about 20 minutes which we haven't had before, but were soon on board. We had nice rooms - 1252 and 1260, room review below. The concierge room is a nice touch ...

This was a 4 night cruise from Barcelona to Toulon and Ibiza (Saturday overnight at port). We are a family of 4. My 2 kids are 3.5 year old twins. I did cruise when I was a child with my parents (on the Eugenio C and Royal Viking Sky) but this was my first modern cruise with my family as an adult. My wife had never cruised before and thought cruises were boring, plus she was afraid of sea ...

This is our third sailing with RC. First was on the Navigator of the Seas a ok cruise. Second was on the Maiden Voyage 4 day to Labadee Extravaganza on Oasis of the Seas. Great ship lots of bumps on the road here. Substandard cruise director, just ok service though. Great service in Windjammer poor service in dining room. Great ship to be on though lots of freebies thrown in. Now on to review of ...

This was our 5th cruise, two previously with Royal Caribbean (RCI) two with Princess. Transfer from Barcelona Airport to the ship via pre aranged transport with RCI was smooth and efficient. We had a 30 minute wait at the ship in a long queue for embarkation, possibly as so many passengers had arived at the same time, shortly after 12 noon. It seems the queue is much shorter nearer 2pm which is ...

We travelled 'overland' from Manchester, UK to Barcelona on 18th / 19th May 2010 to ensure the volcanic ash cloud did not disrupt our flight from the UK or to Spain. That trip is a completely different story! Stayed overnight at the Villa Emilia hotel in Barcelona, very nice boutique hotel. www.hotelvillaemilia.com Thursday, 20th May Caught a taxi from the hotel to the port 'Moll D'Adossat' at ...

We've recently finished the 5 night Western Mediterranean cruise, departing Barcelona on RC's Adventure of the Seas. As we had also done a Western Caribbean cruise with Carnival, a few weeks earlier, we had a great chance to compare the 2 cruiselines side-by-side. Both cruises were done on our honeymoon. We can confidently say that Carnival won in practically every category. This rather surprised ...
