A little of this, a little of that, and very little spice

For those of you who have not cruised since the Love Boat was a TV regular, well... things have changed a bit. The Cruise Line (RCI): Today, most cruises are heavily discounted, and therefore the cruise line must try any and all other ways to generate income. These include 'pay extra' restaurants aboard, non-inclusive drinks and even the somewhat poorly-considered practice of not supplying ...

We were on the repositioning cruise on November 6th, that went from Fort Lauderdale to Labadee, Curcacao, Aruba, Grand Cayman and to Tampa. It was a great cruise! Embarkment was so easy, arrived via hotel shuttle at about 11am, and were on the ship within 15 minutes, so easy. We were not allowed to go to our stateroom until about 2pm (which I don't remember from our past trips with ...

Not likely to revisit the Vision of the Seas

This was our first Royal Caribbean cruise and will probably be our last. There were way too many issues. First, let me preface this review by saying I did not choose this cruise line, ship or ports. A relative and his friends had booked this cruise and asked us if we wanted to join them so we did but I'd never have chosen this boat on my own. It was far too small of a boat which meant there were ...

Generally, we cruise with Celebrity. Our first cruise was on Royal, and it was a good one, so we had no qualms about doing another. I only mention this as while the two lines aren’t directly comparable, Celebrity serves as my point of reference. This cruise was a 9 night repositioning from Fort Lauderdale to Tampa. The ports were Labadee, Curacao, Aruba and Grand Cayman. Embarkation: Fantastic. ...

Positives: 1. The people we met from Cruise Critic roll call 2. Other fellow passengers, many of whom we met at anytime dining. 3.The RCCL staff, from the waiters, to the service personnel in Windjammer, to room steward(Willie), customer service, check in staff. 4. The wonderful food in the main dining room at dinner. It was the best by far among our 8 cruises on various cruise lines. 5. The ...

1. Embarkation very good. Debarkation - chaos. We didn't get off the ship until 11:20AM 2. Entertainment. Awful. The comedian rolled up a napkin to resemble a penis and safety pinned in to his belt and strutted around the stage making flatulence noises and telling potty mouth jokes. 3. Giovanni's Table: terrific, but $20 extra. Lido (they call it the Windjammer): same food each day, very limited ...

We were pleased with everything from the moment we got on the ship. Our cabin was clean and fresh. The cabin Stewart introduced himself and was happy to see if we could have a little refrigerator. We did. We were so happy to sit at table 137, where both Andre and Ignacio treated us as if we were royalties. Every meal we ate at dinner was delicious. The dining rooms were comfortable and not too ...

My husband David and I took this cruise to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We had been on 2 previous ncruises 20 years ago. We both agree this was the best so far. We were in Cabin 2521 (inside cabin). It was plenty large enough for my husband and I. The bathroom was fine, including the shower curtain. Lots of storage. The beds need alot more padding. Very hard. Our cabin attendant was ...

Sailed on this cruise ship for my first cruise. I thought that this was the best way to get good service and relaxation for a week. I was not one bit disappointed. The food from the buffets and the dining room was exquisite. The service myself and my wife received was next to none. The dining room server and waiter was the best you could ask for. They were very polite and friendly. I liked the ...

This was our 6th sailing with RCI, with the previous 5 on the Liberty and Allure. We had many hesitations prior to sailing due to the negative reviews. I am happy to say that with a few exceptions, we found this so called smaller, older, darker ship to be quite charming. Our departure from the port was seamless. Not a single minutes wait from the moment we parked. In less than 10 minutes we were ...
