Disappointing cruise
"Bearing in mind I am diamond plus, has 2 nights of no sleep on a junior suite last week because the cabin is above the public toilets, you would have thought they’d be offering me an upgrade for free as only 1700 on board!Was just told $300 to upgrade to a balcony for 5 nights take it or leave it so I said I’d just have a non smelly inside cabin and not this one!..."Read More

Just got off from Anthem yesterday and already miss it! Our last cruise was 3 years ago at Independence with extended family and we only booked this cruise 2 months ago wondering if it will be the same but it turned out to be absolute success. This time it was for family of 4 including myself husband and 7,11 years old children. At terminal we were told it is about four thousand something ...

My wife and I chose this cruise purely because of timing. My wife works a lot in the USA and this week fitted in with her trip home in between various other family events. We would not have actually chosen this itinerary, but that wasn't really a big point of the cruise, we just wanted to get away and (mainly for her...) relax. We have also cruised with RCCI a number of times and have always ...

Covid tests Pointless as we took covid home along with lots of people. Had to have a Covid test at our expense this year (last year Royal paid) no more than two days before. We were booked at Lloyds pharmacy which is £30 each but when I rang up they didn't have any lateral flow test kits in and wouldn't know if they would have them for our appointment. So we used MedicSpot this time as ...

We are diamond plus cruisers with RCCL. However, this cruise was a wake-up call after the Covid shut down RCCL have cut everything to the bone. The first night 2 untrained waiters served cold main course steak with fries, had a replacement Steak and fries but could not cut the Steak with the provided steak knife so this once again got returned, This happened 5 times on various occasions to me ...

We left Southampton on one of the hottest days of the year with an 8 year old and an autistic 4 year old! We specifically booked royal Caribbean due to the autism status and it did not disappoint. Our worry upon arrival will be the waiting to board as our youngest cannot handle hustle and bustle and noises etc so therefore he has a meltdown. Advised royal Caribbean of our worries and got ...

This is our second trip on Anthem and it was 100% better than our last as the vast majority of COVID regulations have been relaxed. Embarkation at Southampton was easy and our daughter was in the pool by 1.30 as we had had our first cocktail! It was UK half term so the ship was busy with lots of kids. No problem with drinks in any of the bars (waiters work very hard!!). Food was a ...

My first Royal Caribbean cruise, and really enjoyed it. The ship's layout was great, as was the entertainment and food, and everywhere had a great atmosphere. We somehow snuck through embarkation in about half an hour, got changed and found a spot on deck 15 for an unexpectedly sunny Southampton afternoon. On Deck Weirdly, for such a big ship, I think the pool deck is quite small and ...

After several emails and messages telling us to make sure we were on time, we queued with thousands of others outside in the rain for more than an hour before boarding. No apology or even a mention from RCI, so I presume this is normal. My suitcase was delivered to the cabin at 8.30pm, 7 hours after I left it with the check in team !! No apology or explanation, so maybe normal? Our dinner ...

We were only on Anthem 9 months ago. It was fabulous in every way. But I am sorry to say that now OMG! It's not good at all. Food was poor even in Chop's Grill , they try to palm you off with stale doughnuts instead of pastries in main dinning breakfast , they was very limited drinks availability, no single malt! and the hygiene standards are slipping , entertainment (quiz's) were in small ...

This crusie is a bit tricky to review as RCL can't be held respobsible for COVID or the UK weather!! The good bits and in fairness these were all excellent. Food, staff, room, entertainment, drinks all absolutely brilliant. Even the shore excursions were very good. We loved Giants Causeway in Ireland. Now the tricky bit and my major disappointment with RCL. This was a UK school ...
