Very, very disappointing

I hardly know where to start as I found the whole experience very disappointing. It seems one third of the ship is given over to the silver/gold suites and areas, one third to Seaplex (which I'll tell you about) ...

Ship full of problems

We chose this cruise because of the incredible places it visited. The ports of call and most excursions were awesome and well worth the time and money. However, the ship was a completely disgusting place to have ...

Ovation of the Seas - nice but not for us.

We wanted to experience one of the huge ships to see if they were to our taste, after 10 cruises on smaller ships. We chose Ovation of the Seas because it was brand new and coming eventually to Australia. The ship ...

Oh Dear Royal Caribbean, whatever were you thinking of ?

When I purchased this cruise, I was aware it was a repositioning. What I wasn't aware of was the extent of renovations and closures that were going to be done whilst I was on board. Royal Caribbean kept very quiet ...
