"The 2 table was still in use so they wandered around a bit and we followed like lost dogs and finally settled at a table for 6 that only had us 2, not far from our first night seating.We had good convo and they gave us some tips for our next cruise dining experience...."Read More

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We were first-time cruisers. We did not know what to expect. Upon embarking we believed RCCL was a well-oiled machine. The check-in process of vaccine and negative test checking was efficient. Once on the ship, we were amazed at how beautiful Deck 5 was. The cabin was clean and our luggage came very quickly. We ate lunch and settled in. We had a several-hour delay in leaving the port that ...

This cruise started off as a complete cluster at the port in Ft Lauderdale. We arrived at 11 am expecting to board the ship. We were directed to sit down and wait. No explanation and very rude RC staff members. We were sitting in an area that one staff person directed us to and then a very rude staff member came and said you can’t sit here, go over there. So we did. As this area ...

(Royal Caribbean Diamond Plus with 30+ cruises on RCL) We booked this cruise 6 days before the sail date of 11 December, 2021. Booked a large balcony cabin and very surprised to find one available and the reasonable price so close to departure Once on board it became obvious why. They were excited to get 4200 people, the highest number since the shutdown, on board a ship with a capacity of ...

I rely almost 100% on reviews for every trip I take, so I'm paying it forward by giving as concise a review of this cruise that I can for others. We didn't choose this cruise, the couple we sailed with did. We didn't think we'd like a ship this massive, but we were pleasantly surprised. Never felt crowded, even with over 4K aboard. Never had to wait for an elevator and rarely had to wait in ...

11th cruise with Royal, Staff and food very good, Home office in Miami is INSANE. Their rules were past crazy! Can not pick up a wrapped butter pat, needs to be handed to you, can not pick up cloth napkin wrapped silverware, needs to be handed to you, took 1 Hour 25 minutes for pre checked veteran guests to board ship with 50% capacity. Did not see the Captain (first time in 15 total cruises), ...

Been on this ship several times before. I am a Diamond Member. Eliminating the daily newsletter ( The Compass) was ridiculous. This was an 8 day cruise and the same 2 performers remained on the ship for the full 8 days repeating their same act. Love and Marriage game was hysterical. However, they just gave every contestant a cheap bottle of champagne. The drinks were all watered down. In ...

We hadn't sailed on RCCL in many years so were looking forward to sailing with them again. We treated our son and his wife to a cruise and all were excited. However, I have not decided when I will book another cruise. I had no problem with covid protocols and wearing masks. RCCL was up front about it and did their best to enforce it. We all know some people think rules are for everyone but ...

Used up a cruise credit from 2019 that RCCL would not extend, even though they canceled 2 I had booked. Even though I had a frustrating experience with them pre cruise. I was looking forward to this cruise. The crowding and waiting started at the airport as I had to wait 45 minutes for their shuttle, causing me to arrive at the port at 2 pm to absolute chaos. Luggage everywhere and a lineup that ...

I was on the Allure of the Seas on my Honeymoon with my wife on 11/14/2021 and all my wife wanted to do in St.Maarten was go on the excursion we paid for which was horseback riding. There was nothing on the website when we booked the reservation that there was a weight limit of 200 pounds and it was in error on Royal Caribbean website and we were not allowed to go. Also My wife and I are in ...
