Royal Caribbean set the bar very high with Odessey of the Seas! All new and state of the art. Beautiful decor, perfect state rooms (highly recommend the rooms with larger PVT balconies) , delicious food, great guys and solarium. Ship was @ 30% capacity so it was simply the best experience ever. I felt safer on the cruise then on land because of the protocols in place! There is more Purell on ...

Apparently, the ship sailed at 50% capacity. Sounds great, not so fast! BOARDING Passengers were given an arrival time which was purely on the honor system - not one employee checked. The jam-packed snaking line, just to get into the building, was horrible. No employee encouraged distancing. There was no signage for Covid testing either, so we snaked our way through the line only to ...

We boarded the Odyssey of the Seas on December 12, 2021 in Port Everglades at terminal 18, sailed for two weeks on back- to- back cruises and disembarked on December 26, 2021. The ship was beautiful, filled with modern technology, art work and new venues. The crew were excellent, professional and at the tops of their professions. The covid protocols were extensive and enforced. We were on board ...

We were on the ship sailing from Florida, dec 18 8 day cruise. 2nd day they announced 50 plus people positive. None of the port on the itinerary allowed us in. We were in the sea for the 7days. Dinning room and Windjammer was packed with people. People were coughing and sneezing. Bars and gym followed social distancing, mask protocol, however casinos and 4th deck were packed with people. ...

We originally booked this cruise for the inaugural cruise almost 2 years ago. The itinerary was changed by RCCL because of Covid, no fault of the cruise line. The ship is new, this was their third cruise for this ship so everything was clean and modern. However since this was a newly assembled crew there was quite a bit of confusion as they gather their sea legs on this new ship. Embarkation was ...

You can't go wrong with Odyssey of Seas! Just an amazing ship. Everything was first rate. Entertainment and activities were off the charts! All of the shows were fantastic - I can't stress that enough! The Music Hall is modeled after the House of Blues and we really enjoyed the "Legends of Rock" show. We also did the iFly experience where you float in the air like a free fall skydive. The ...

We had picked this cruise after being on three others that were canceled over the past 12 months. It was a family cruise with three generations of people so a nice get away. So getting to the port my suggestion is to print out your test results instead of trying to find it on your phone it speeds things up a lot. It moved a lot faster than in the past. If i recall correctly they said that there ...

Just finished an 8 day cruise on Odyssey. Great cruise and very relaxing but have to admit not my favorite ship. Though that is the case here are some observations: VENUES/SHOWS - Music venues on top of each other which resulted in music from each venue bleeding into each other (music halls; crown/compass and schooners) - 270 venue was awesome. Very high tech - Main shows were ok. ...

I did not selected this cruise. It was chosen by my partner and I respected his decision. The ship is beautiful and the staff was very helpful. Due to the Pandemic, the ship had only 1,300 passengers while their capacity is almost 4,000. The dining rooms were great but not the food. Being a seafood fan I expected shrimps, lobster and crabs but was disappointed. Crabs were never an option on ...

Chose this cruise because of the ship. the newest in the fleet of our favorite cruise line, Royal Carib. The ship was amazing in itself, but with the low capacity at this time (approx 28%) and the friendliness of the crew and staff, it made it more special. We went to Coco Cay for the afternoon and it was empty so not too many water slides were open. That and the fact there were only 60 under ...
