The water in The Bahamas is like the fountain of youth. Just stunning!

Coco Cay was fun, it’s a little theme park-like though. Pristine water, the adults only side was very nice.

Odyssey is to the left and one of the newer ships in the fleet.

Crew are amazing, and that’s it.
"They should really come up with a system to get people to stop doing that, because I will never go on a cruise again, and will definitely suggest others don’t as well, it was super frustrating and not relaxing at all.People will put their towels out before 6am and then leave for hours before they come back, super unfortunate and disappointing...."Read More

Odyssey of the seas We did the 14 day transatlantic cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Rome. We are Diamond members so we have cruised with Royal quite a bit. Overall it was a good cruise. But there were some disappointments. The ship was mostly full. I think about 100 children. It is really pretty. And the service was excellent. The pros The Windjammer was nicely laid out and generally ...

My experience on Odyssey was generally positive, with a few hiccups. Here are some pros and cons: Pros: -The ship is beautiful, easily navigable, and well-equipped -The staff were all exceptionally friendly -My stateroom was spotlessly clean and had plenty of storage -Onboard activities were fun and diverse, but you need to book ahead of time! -The destinations on this ...

Overall, my husband and I had a great trip. The excursions were fantastic, the room was great and the staff are very personable. However, being a young married couple without children, there is very little entertainment catered to our generation. Most of the entertainment was for the elderly or for young children. Unless you wait later in the night then there are a couple of shows or parties, ...

This was my first cruise ever. I'm usually a plan my own itinerary, airbnb type of traveller. My husband and I went with 2 other couples, both of which were experienced cruisers. The ship was very clean and well maintained. We had a balcony stateroom which was well laid out, spotlessly clean and had plenty of storage. My only complaint about the stateroom was the water in the shower could ...

Unbelievable experience on this ship! Where to start... The first day I found that all of the reservations that I had made for dinner were gone from the RCCL app so my husband and I went to the Main Dining Room directly to find out our dining time. It was a bit crowded, so I sought out a member of the wait staff that was outside of the dining room to explain our situation and seek guidance. ...

We love this class of ship. So many great venues. We’ve sailed on Ovation before and were really excited as Odyssey is even larger and has a couple additional places to dine or drink. We are a bit disappointed in the overall lack of appealing entertainment with some terrific venues being underutilized. Two70 sits eerily quiet during the day on sea days whereas Ovation had some live music. The ...

Previous Royal cruising on: Enchantement, Navigator(twice), Adventurer, Freedom, Explorer, and Allure. Cruised with husband, daughter, and son-in-law.

I have 12 Royal cruises under my belt before this and number 13 was NOT the lucky one. I cruised with my wife and my 17 year old son. This was the first RC cruise I went on where I did not have that, "I want to come back" feeling. The GOOD 1. Our waiter in the main dining room was spectacular. She was the shinning star of the cruise. 2. The casino was less smokey compared to other ...

This was our 8th cruise on Royal Caribbean. we've been on the Oasis class at least 4 times and on the Quantum class 4 times. The quantum class is our favorite, and the Odyssey did not disappoint. Embarkation: we signed up for the KEY program, which comes with free Wi-fi streaming for each guest who gets the key, and you can board early and there are a few benefits throughout the cruise (we ...

For the amount of money we paid for this cruise. It was not worth it. 1. Our balcony room couch/bed was like a hard block. We had to double up on comforters for the kids to sleep better. 2. the stateroom attendant was never around. We had to constantly call for towels, toilet paper, tissues. 3. the Windjammer food was the same for breakfast every day and even during lunch and dinner ...
