Pretty good, but left me thinking we could do better.

I went on this cruise with my husband, and 16 year old daughter. Embarkation: Galveston. Sigh. You would think a Texan port would be designed with a priority towards keeping people relatively cool and ...

Sad; wanted to leave on the third day.

This was my second cruise on Royal carribean with my family. From the first day we arrived, I felt like they have lost their royal treatment. The food was disgusting. the bread was hard, the smell of the sapphire ...

Nice Ship

Cruise itself was nice...somewhat what I had expected. We met the transfer at the Houston airport for the shuttle bus down to Galveston & embarkation. This process went real smoothly & we were on our way in no ...

Still a great value but changed from a few years back

Embarkation day My sister dropped us off at the terminal at 10 am. There were two lines. I got in the wrong line which was priority. The regular line is the far left. At 10:30 they opened the door and we started ...

Pros and cons for this cruise

Our overall experience was good, but the cruise was a bit underwhelming. Getting from the airport in Houston to the cruise terminal takes about 1.5 hours and is very expensive ($150-200 one way). This added a lot to ...

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 ...

Cruised out of Galveston, TX 11/30-12/7/14

Getting around Texas after flying into IAH is inconvenient, no doubt about it. Because the week that we were traveling bordered on a holiday, we were unable to get a one-way car rental from Enterprise in Houston to ...

Great Cruise Galveston-Cozumel-Caymen-Jamaica-Galveston on RCI Navagat

The NOS was renovated this year, and the ship is beautiful. The entertainment was quite good. Plenty of live music for listening and dancing. Production shows in the theater were top notch. The headliner shows were ...

Falling standards on board the Navigator

We have sailed on the Navigator several times in the past, usually from Cape Liberty. We are diamond plus members, so are well used to RCCL. Every time we board a ship, the first thing we do is go to the library. ...

I thought it was supposed to be wines and leisure

First and foremost I am a Royal Caribbean fan. I have sailed on Freedom, Explorer, And Oasis. I have also sailed on Princess. The trip out of Galveston in August should by no means be reflective of my overall RCI ...

Enough to make me go back to Carnival

The add on costs of this cruise and the long lines to get on and off the ship are never mentioned in any reviews I have read. We had to stay in a Hotel over night, and pay for a shuttle to and from Dallas, the hotel ...
