We did this as our honeymoon. Stateroom: We had a room with a balcony. It was smaller but the perfect size for two people. We didn't get to use the balcony much because the sun didn't really hit it much but it was so nice to have ... Read more

This was our second Transatlantic cruise and our first time on a Freedom Class ship. For eight days cruising at sea (losing an hour each day at noon) and a bit overcast/windy this time, we still found enough to do to keep us from getting ... Read more

This was our 4th TA and the 3rd on a RC ship. The check-in was somewhat unorganized, prior to them losing several cameras at the check-in. Even with these problems the crew was able to get our pictures and log us onto the ship. We ... Read more

The price was very good, the repositioning cruise is always longer, which we like. The ship was new to us and most ports we had never visited. We like to do different ships, ports and adventures. We arrived in Ft. Lauderdale late the ... Read more

Low cost for Transatlantic and an invite from friends drove us to choose this cruise but 8 days crossing with mostly high winds and cloudy skies dampened our enthusiasm, Royal Caribbean did nothing to plan alternate indoor events for us. ... Read more

Never tried a trans-Atlantic crossing before. If you don't want to be on the water for 8 straight days, this isn't the cruise for you! That said, it was relaxing and enjoyable. Entertainment and food were great. Diamond lounge was ... Read more

This was my first transatlantic ever and from start to finish the cruise was simply awesome. Arrived at the port just a little before 11 and was on the ship an hour later. It would have been faster, but they experienced some computer ... Read more

I have no complaints about the cruise portion of this trip, but was disappointed with the hotel overcharges arranged by AIR2SEA, Royal Caribbean's partner. I was charged $513.72 for a two night stay in Barcelona, but was quoted a price of ... Read more

We like cruises with more sea days and less ports. Transatlantic is perfect for that. We had 8 days at sea and we really enjoyed that. There was a great band on the ship so we danced almost every night. The Ice Skating show was excellent. ... Read more
