Mixed Feelings

I think the main issue I had with our cruise was the order we went on cruise ships. We went on allure and oasis then went on the navigator. If we went on the navigator first, we wouldn't have been disappointed. ...

Not So Royal Customer Service

Being in hospitality myself, it requires foundational customer service skills that are not reflected in Royal Caribbean's core values. I booked this cruise with two best friends to celebrate our 30th birthday. ...

Poor Service

Dining was great. We have always cruised Carnival and decided to try Royal Caribbean. The ship was nice and easy to navigate. Service in dining area was great, but that's where it stops. I cruised with 10 guessed ...

Royal needs some improvement.

Ok, not our first cruise. Have cruised Norwegian, Carnival and Royal. We choose Royal because our last cruise was great as far as the ship was concerned. Hats off to Cat at the Solarium who always knew our name ...

Disappointed

Galveston wouldn't be my first choice of ports, but it was uneventful (that's a good thing). I was hesitant to believe how good the food was before I took my first cruise. After my first cruise (Carnival ...

More cons than pros

Overall, our vacation was fun because we were together as a family, but there is definitely room for improvement on this ship (we sailed on the Navigator of the Seas out of Galveston). I want to be objective and ...

2 ships. 2 cruises taken a year apart (Carnival June 2014 & RCI 2015). Same port (Galveston). Same destinations (Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica). Both family vacations with children ranging from elementary age ...

Cruise from Galveston

First, like I usually do, I book a motel a day before the cruise (just to insure no timing problems). So I booked this cruise from Galveston and then a motel there. Then air from San Diego to Houston, and thinking I ...

Disappointed in Royal Caribbean cruise

I have cruised 3 times with Royal Caribbean and was really looking forward to a wonderful experience. We have cruised with Carnival and Princess several times and thought maybe this would be equal. But it was not. ...

Another Learning Experience

One is never too old to learn new life lessons. Our trip to the Caribbean on Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas in December 2014 was another brutal reminder of that. Loved the boat, liked the crew, food was ...

Not Great

RCCL is cutting corners everywhere they can. I guess it is so they can pay for their new mega ships. The entertainment was not up to par compared to other of the 19 cruises we have been on. The food service was not ...

Just returned from cruise on Navigator

1.Change your food menu in the promenade deck. The same old sandwiches and same desserts get old when your on a 7 day cruise. This also goes for your food in the Windjammer. You could tell they were cutting corners ...

First Time on Royal Caribbean…..

We arrived at the Port of Galveston in plenty of time to be greeted by piles of suitcases and bewildered passengers with no guidance from staff. Took over an hour to get to the front desk to check in and the check ...

Such a downgrade from Carnival

Having cruised on Carnival 3 times in the past, we really expect Royal Carribean to be an upgrade from Carnival. Wow, we were so wrong. Everything was terrible. The food, the rooms, the "entertainment", you name it. ...
