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

The Good: The ship is most luxuriously decorated. Lots of amazing photo ops. We felt good just being there. Lots to do and see. Evening dining was great. (We were alone and chose 5:30 traditional dining with a table for 6. It was a great social success.) The food, service and table appointment equals the best upscale restaurants in Galveston - and is included with the cruise price. RC ...

Ship looks great inside with the refurbish. they spent millions of dollars to upgrade this. However the food in the buffet was a 7.99 type of buffet. i have been on many Cruises including royal , i cruise 2-3 times a year. I noticed less variety as well as lower quality. (cheap Chinese buffet desserts, no cake pies ect) the main dinning room was ok some nights however overall i found the food ...

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 out of the sun. I am a Texan, so obviously, I am used to being hot and uncomfortable outdoors for 8-9 months out of the year. I'm not a whiner. But geez. The port was awful. If I ...

Bad Service, Terrible Accommodations, and Poor Quality Food. 3rd time cruising with RC. 30 years old traveling with Fiance. Stayed in a balcony suite. Beverage Package not worth it, doesn't include everything like it says. Rude bartenders that take FOREVER to serve a drink. And don't forget to include the tax and automatic gratuity which makes it about $30 more than advertised per 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 restaurant was horrible, and the cook couldn't prepare soft scrambled eggs. The pool area was dirty all the time, the room a/c was not cooling well at all. And some of the staff ...

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 time. The ride was a little over an hour I believe. The process of getting your bags again out of the under carriage area is a bit of a mess but it worked out in the end. We hailed a ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 30s

Background: My wife and I chose this cruise for two reasons, we were celebrating our 10th year anniversary and the ship departed in our home town of Houston. Since this was our first long vacation in a few years and we wanted to splurge without having the kids, we chose to travel in a grand suite. Having been on other cruise lines from Galveston we wanted try Royal for the first time. Being in ...

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 in. We were through security in about 15 mins. We went on into the terminal and found our line (Gold). We were second in line and were through and seated in about 5 mins. At 11:10 they ...

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 our budget unexpectedly. There were long line ups at embarkation even though the cruise line tried to stagger visitor arrival. We had a nice aft balcony cabin (we booked a guarantee ...

We have gone on 21 cruises on 3 different cruise lines, so we are somewhat experienced cruisers. We thoroughly enjoyed the Navigator...she looks good after her refurbishing. Dining: The main dining room staff was wonderful...since we were B2B they let us pick our table for the following week. We were able to get a "table for 2" each week which is a rarity. The food was above average with very ...
