Dream vacation!

This was our honeymoon cruise. What drew us to it was the itinerary: Rome, Messina (Sicily), Athens, Ephesus, Turkey, and Crete. I had only ever been on a Princess cruise before, but RCI was rated so highly, it was ...

Not impressed - Galveston and RCL never again!

This was our honeymoon. We had a great time together but would never choose Royal Caribbean again. The ship was beautiful, and well maintained. I'll start with the positive- kinda. We had an amazing room with ...

Never again out of Galveston

This was our 2nd cruise out of Galveston, or first was 2005, boy things have gotten worse. Granted this is our 7 total cruise, we are not rookies, but the logistics in Galveston have taken a turn for the worst. ...

Great Cruise But Changes Are Noticeable

Just a preface to this review: It has been almost three years since we have cruised RCCL’s Navigator OTS, and our first time on this ship out of Galveston. There sure have been some noticeable changes! This was a ...

This was not a pleasant experience

When we got caught in the total chaos of the boarding process in Galveston we should have known there would be problems on the cruise. When we finally got to our cabin and needed to talk to our cabin steward we were ...

Loved it!

I took my 9 and 11 year old kids on this cruise so my review will be most helpful to families. CABIN: We had an ocean view cabin forward on Deck 2 and it was just a little tight but definitely manageable. My ...

Upgrades were good, miss the old nightclub, love the ship

New carpeting, technology, and venues around the ship. Definitely nicer to have flatscreens and I'm assuming the virtual balconies were a nice change for those interior staterooms that got that upgrade. The digital ...

Such a downgrade from Carnival

Having cruised on Carnival 3 times in the past, we really expect Royal Carribean to be an upgrade from Carnival. Wow, we were so wrong. Everything was terrible. The food, the rooms, the "entertainment", you name it. ...

Great vacation

I read a lot of the reviews here, and went to the port wondering if I had made the correct choice for my family. Obviously, there were lines, but one expects that when loading 3900 people. We were greeted with ...

Enough to make me go back to Carnival

Sailed Eastern Caribbean On 07/13/2014  Balcony Room on Starboard Side If the ship faces the same way each time it docks then port side would have been better. I know that some consider Carnival a "lower class" ...

Over the past several months, I have read many of the reviews of the ship. The categories are people love it or hate it with only a few in the middle. While I am not an experienced "recreational" cruiser, I have ...
