Disappointing experience

First Time Cruiser

As a solo traveler I had hoped that this cruise would be enjoyable, it wasn’t. A lot of the time I felt that the ship was too crowded and it could be difficult to enjoy everything it had to offer. For instance, the sun loungers. Plenty of them, but most draped with towels even though no one was using them. Obviously people would bag their lounger and keep it all day. The lido restaurant, often ...

We chose this cruise as it was visiting Oporto and Lisbon - well meant to have been. On the first sea day we were advised no Oporto due to technical failure which would be rectified in Lisbon. A late arrival in Vigo and evening departure From Lisbon to compensate! However with the speed we travelled on departure from Lisbon we are sure an earlier departure would have enabled a half day call at ...

First, Southampton is fabulous for the easy of embarkation! Great job!!! So easy. We boarded early and it was about 8 GBP (pounds) fare from Southampton Central Station to the ship. Easy to get on and reacquaint ourselves with Indy. We had an inside cabin overlooking the Royal Promenade which saved us hundreds off the original balcony room that we had. Guest Relations was FANTASTIC! They teased ...

Ticked all the boxes including free drinks package when booking. Not enough daytime lectures/talks (Lady who delivered talks on pop stars had a poor delivery style). There were a number of quizzes but the venues got so full that it was very difficult to find seats. Great service by restaurant and bar staff who, for me, went out of their way to be pleasant and helpful. Some good ...

We have cruised with Royal Caribbean before and found them to be of good quality and good value. Not this time. Prices have gone up and standards have gone down dramatically. The main restaurant where food has always been good now resembles school dinners with such delicacies as mince and onions making an unwelcome appearance. I ordered scallops au gratin. The scallop had been diced into tiny ...

Having sailed with Celebrity previously my wife and I were eager to return to "Eclipse" for her trip to the Western Med in September 17. The cruise met all our expectations with regard to the incredible staff and the ample, well-produced and displayed, food. But the awful entertainment and total lack of sporting events on the much-vaunted lawn were a great disappointment. The Cruise Director was ...

I work in social work which is stressful and booked this cruise after moving to Wales as both husband and myself needed a break after a stressful eighteen months refurbishing house and his chainsaw accident. This cruise was likely to be the last we will all share together, so we wanted something special. Having sailed with Celebrity previously we were eager to return to "Eclipse" for her trip to ...

We were just looking for a restful cruise from Southampton in September and this fitted the bill. We had done all of the ports on past cruises. Booking using their web site was a complete nightmare. Eventually had to call their office in Surrey and get one of their agents to do everything for me. The list of things that went wrong are to numerous to mention here. The cabin on deck 7 was ...

Southampton sailing and liked the overnight in palma. Not sure whether we would sail again from Southampton due to poor weather on return. What a shame that Rci have now resorted to the cheapest form of entertainment in one of the better lounges , that being karaoke, particularly on most nights. No problem occasionally. Lounges on this ship were not distinctive and entertainment dated and ...

After six cruises with P&O we thought we would try Royal Caribbean as they were offering a very good deal at the time we need to go...during the school holidays. Embarkation went very smoothly and we were very excited to depart. The cabin was nice and comfortable although not as clean as it could have been. We were not overly impressed by the ships layout, everything seem to centered ...
