Unhappy Independence: oh dear, do they know we are on holiday?
"I'm always reluctant to write reviews as it is easy to focus on negativity is there is one bad thing. I have to say that one bad thing was huge. The staff are not happy in want way. This was our 13th cruise..."Read More

We chose this cruise because we wanted our grandchildren to have a great time. They did. We less so. We had been on IoS on an Atlantic when the ship was two years old and enjoyed it. We knew August would be kids' central, which was why we chose to go. No complaints there. Brilliant facilities. I could go-on about the lack of parental responsibility but that isn't RCCL's job, though Security ...

We chose this cruise as we had sailed on the Independence of The Seas three years ago, and thought it was a beautiful ship. Our sail date was in September so we avoided the peak season. my son started back to school a week later so we could travel then. This time, unfortunately we travelled peak time. However we were, this time, appalled at the general greed of the RCCL, and the advantage ...

Embarkation at Southampton was awful. I am disabled & reliant on my female P.A & there was no guidance or assistance in unloading the car with our luggage. We were told to put our suit/dress holders in our suitcases yet we saw other people carrying theirs. Upon entering the terminal we were given a fast track card, what a joke! We were waiting more than 1 hour! We were quickly rushed on to the ...

We chose this cruise as it was part of our daughter's 21st birthday celebrations. Plus the fact that we sailed on the Explorer last year so expected the same standard and service we've come to expect on our last 6 cruises with Royal Caribbean. However, this was not the case, a very disappointing ship. Sadly I felt dismayed that we had spent more money on an August cruise for less space in our ...

Getting on the ship was fantastic - so organised at Southampton. Drop cases off, drop car off, get in a small queue to get Sea pass, passport control, security and onto the ship. We were on ship just after 11am, but cabins opened at 1.30pm, so time to explore ship and get something to eat and drink. We had already purchased a non alcoholic drinks package with coffee, water, soda and non ...

The embarkation was very smooth and slick, this may have been because we were late getting on the ship, most people were already on. The ship is average , nice without it being WOW,however, the last ship we went on was the Anthem of the seas,so this may be the reason we felt as we did. The cabin, which was a virtual balcony adapted cabin was again ok, the bathroom we felt did not have enough ...

Returned from 14 nights aboard Britannia West Med Embarkation ( 1 hr ) and Disembarkation ( 2hr ) went as well as one can expect and considering 3000 people to sort time on Disembarkation was more due to the fact you asked to leave room at 8am and waited till 09.15am at an area on ship till given instructions to leave. Rooms vary on board depending what your requirements are. We opted for a ...

We decided to go on the Emerald Princess for our first cruise due to the wonderful destinations it stopped at - Barcelona, Rome, Pisa, Florence, Genoa, Corsica, Marseilles and Gibraltar. I wasn't disappointed - these destinations were FAB-U-LOUS. Embarking onto the ship was dream - hardly any queuing time. Thank goodness they had porters to take our 5 huge suitcases to our rooms. The ship ...

This is our second RC Cruise. The previous cruise had been to The Fjords and Iceland which we really enjoyed. The reason we choose this cruise was that the children's clubs are excellent, we can barely get our children out of them! It also gives us time to go sightseeing. The food in the main dining room was excellent and quite unbelievable considering the amount of people on board. We also ...

This was a family holiday on the Emerald Princess, which suited our required holiday dates. We thought the ship was in good order, clean and tidy - very similar to P&O's Ventura and Azura. Embarkation was first class, as was disembarkation. The staff were very good and professional throughout the ship. Some of the minus points were no tea/coffee making facilities in the stateroom and dining in ...
