Terrible Service From Royal Caribbean

My review sounds exactly like the previous one posted by ljpinko. We selected Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas based on the many good reviews and recommendations we received. This was the 1st cruise for 2 people in my party and we had planned on this vacation for over 9 months. From embarkation it was clear that our cruise was not going to be anything like the reviews we read. We felt that we ...

I believe ljpinko said all that I was going to say. I also wrote RC a lengthy email about our experience. I am still waiting to hear from them. My family and I (about 7 people) booked this vacation and what happened on board was awful. I would say about 95% of the passengers were drunk college students. These people were toasted, high, rude and just all around out of control. I wonder if the ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 30s

I don't even know where to begin with this review. First let me say that I have travelled with Royal Caribbean three times now with my first two times being outstanding, breath taking experiences that led to my loyalty in booking with you for a third time. This third time comparatively, however, was horrendous. Not only did the boat seem old and out of date, it was also un-clean and the staff ...

We read reviews before our vacation. We doubted a lot, but we decided to try. We returned yesterday and so happy, like we were in a paradise! The crew was phenomenal, the cabin was very comfortable, the service was excellent. Food was like from haven. It's very hard to please to everyone, when over 3000 tourists on the ship, but if you are normal honest educated, intelligent person, you have to be ...

I must say this is our first time traveling with Royal Caribbean,, previously we sailed 3 times on Carnival with NO problems, beautiful cruises. Upon arrival on this more expensive cruise with Royal Caribbean, there was somebody's lip balm in on the shelf. and in the closet was somebody's USED anti diarrhea, upset stomach, and laxative medication. There was a broken light fixture and the rooms ...

To start off, my family and I have been on over 12 cruises in the past four years, mainly with Carnival and a couple with NCL. A friend said we had to try RCI, so we gave it a shot. My wife and I are in our early 50's and love to cruise, and it's always fun trying out a new ship, this one was no exception. It was the first with a promenade and ice skating rink. I read the reviews on the ship ...

This cruise was a disaster from day one. Shows are well below the standards set on out previous cruises on Monarch, Enchantment, or Freedom. The shows were on the level of a high school talent show...actually worse. The midnight buffet consisted of seafood spread finger sandwiches? The dining room service and food on this ship was appalling. We sent back 5 steaks on this cruise. The cruise ...

As an avid family cruiser, this being number 10 our family had high expectations as this was our first Royal Caribbean cruise and New Years cruise. First let me say that the weather and the intinerary were great and as the Captain said, "with weather like this, it makes everyone want to be a sailor". Could not have planned the weather any better. With that being said, this will be my last Royal ...

Overall our 8 night cruise to San Juan, St. Croix, St. Maarten and RCCL's private resort was a lot of fun. The weather was sunny and warm, and honestly, how can you complain with being in a tropical paradise? We most especially enjoyed the wide range of activities every day on the ship, including talented entertainers in the Place Theater and Studio who were great. I liked the Cruise Director, ...

I cruised on this ship in 2001. Really enjoyed it. This trip started off bad and went down hill from there.the cabin was okay. The noise from the next cabin was terrible. It was a promenade cabin with an adjoining door . As soon as the next cabin C Turned on the tv we had to turn on ours they were right by the door with no sound proofing. The ship spent an extra day in port in Nassau, to have ...
