We did bring a battery operated night light for the bathroom that was ...

The MSC Meraviglia was amazing. The Covid-19 protocols made us feel safe while enjoying the ship, shows, pool and food. I can honestly say the changes are a "Reflection of the times" not of MSC. Wherever we went the crew greeted us with a smile and attention. Yes, there was social distancing and masking requirements. Regardless, we were able to disconnect from the world and regain sanity, during ...

My husband and I booked this cruise for our anniversary. We wanted to try one of the mega ships and we are glad we chose Harmony of the Seas. There was so much to do and see on Harmony. This cruise was the last cruise before the Covid shut down so we got very lucky. Due to weather our cruise was moved from an Eastern Caribbean Cruise to a Western Caribbean Cruise. Our hope was to visit new ...

We chose this cruise to experience sailing on an Oasis class ship and to compare Royal Caribbean to other cruise lines we have sailed. This ship and crew far exceeded our expectations and provided us with a wonderful cruise. We found the ships crew from the captain on down were all professional and genuinely happy to be on board, something we haven’t always found. The entertainment was ...

Great Cruise but Crowded

We arrived to the Cocoa Beach area the day before embarkation. It was a nice, sunny day, with temperatures in in the low 70's so we decided to spend the afternoon at Jetty Park. It costs $15 per car for the entire day. They have restaurants there to grab a bite to eat, or you can pack a lunch and picnic. After a relaxing day at the beach, we went to Fishlips to have dinner and watch the cruise ...

Dining disaster and harried housekeepers

I previously took a 6-day Royal Caribbean cruise on Freedom of the Seas and loved it. Tremendous service! Housekeeping was attentive, and gave us lots of advice on getting around the ship and ports. They removed the barrier between two ocean balcony rooms, so friends could share that space. My Time Dining was flexible, we didn't need to book dinner or entertainment in advance of the trip. On ...

My sister turned 40 and I surprised her with a cruise. She had always wanted to sail on one of the biggest ships. The ship was absolutely beautiful, modern and clean. Our room Steward and dining room Waiter and his Assistant were fabulous. Embarkation/disembarkation was extremely quick and very smooth. On the downside, the food was edible with the exception of my raw hamburger. I can honestly say ...

Check in :Arrived at the pier around 11 already boarding, from curb to ship maybe 10 minutes! Got in line to make dinner reservations then lunch at Park Cafe. Ship: the ship is perfect we love this class with all its nooks and crannies to explore. The only ...

Don't Miss Wonderland or Jamie's!

We are foodies and really enjoyed Wonderland (both the service and the food were outstanding) and Jamie's (we're now addicted to the Taglietelle Bolognese)! Overall it was a good cruise. The ship was very clean and had a variety of activities on sea days to keep us busy. The port presentations, though, were geared towards shopping; no other activities available in port were mentioned. I'd like ...
