Okay but not great
"What lifted this cruise was the dining room where there was no sign of the reported lack of staff and being solo I was in and out in under an hour each night, the Windjammer though was not open for dinner.I deliberately booked a cruise from Barbados though and correctly assessed that a new port would revive the ship...."Read More

Disappointing cruise ship. Very small and very few outdoor things to do

I wanted to take my daughter and my 2 oldest grandkids (ages 7, 8). Proximity to my location, and it was my 3rd cruise. The others were Royal Caribbean out of Galveston too. All of them have been short 4-5 day cozumel type cruises. This cruise ship was a lot smaller than the other 2 I've been on. There wasn't much to do outside. The pool was small and salty. The only other outdoor activities were ...

I chose this cruise because of price and was told that Royal Caribbean had the best and biggest boats with alot of activities. This was the absolute worst experience ever. The entry was underwhelming and the entertainment with games was boring. To top it off it was dirty and smelly and move had to move because of the vomit smell. The rooms are tiny too and service was terrible at the bar and ...

I went with my sister and her son trying to have a great summer get away with all the kids. I feel like this was a waste of good earned money. We had not been anywhere since COVID and was trying to have some fun. The kids were so bored I had to spend additional money for Wi-Fi on a daily basis. The food was horrible and did not taste fresh. If it was not for the pizza my kids would have ...

So many disappointments. Where to begin?

The whole thing began very badly, nearly deadly in fact. Within two hours of boarding we ate at the Windjammer, where apparently the chef puts cracked pepper in EVERYTHING. I have an anaphylactic response to peppercorns. There was no warning that it was in the food. It is a rare allergy but still, cracked pepper nor peppercorns belong in every dish. I tried something there a second time (pasta ...

Sailed on May 4 2022 for 5 day cruise. The plus- the staff was very fine, although it seemed that there was a shortage of staff, at times. The entertainment was good, not great, except for the Tango show which was spectacular. The ship is in good shape and our cabin was fine. The Minus- the dining room food at dinner was really bad. There were a few good choices, and overall, the food was ...

Great Get Away

Joined family members on this 5 night cruise as a quick get away. We flew into Houston Hobby Airport the day prior to the cruise and used Island Breeze Shuttle for our transport to Galveston ($150 roundtrip for two ppl). When you make reservations with Island Breeze they get your flight number and arrival time, the driver will text you on where to meet him. We stayed at the Hilton Galveston ...

Like most cruisers, having had cruises cancelled over the past 2 years, my wife and I were eager to get back to our favourite holiday. We booked the cruise leaving from Barbados and visiting a Greneda, the ABC islands and St. Lucia (instead of Trinidad). After a long journey from Glasgow to Bridgetown via Heathrow, we were met with long queues and delays at the airport, which seemed not to be ...

Reasonable but had no dinner

Biggest problem was that the windjammer was closed in the evening so we could not find anything to eat. We have restricted diets and did not go to restuarants to see a set menu. So each night we went to teh little cafe and had fruit and cookies. It might have been useful if they had given advance notice of WJ closure. In fcat the RCI app was showing WJ to be open in evenings - that was right upto ...

My worst RC cruise was on the Grandeur, I know some people did millions of cruises on her from Baltimore but as an overseas traveller I just felt unwelcome starting from check in when they saw my British passport and asked if I was a visiting entertainer and finishing when no end of cruise excursions were offered. I deliberately booked a cruise from Barbados though and correctly assessed that ...

Great Itinerary - best time to cruise ever.

We loved this itinerary and price so much we booked back to back cruises. Royal Caribbean and the islands didn't disappoint. 12 beaches in 14 days. Some rain but it never lasted for more than a couple of minutes. The food was great and Johnathan ensured we had our usual window seat every night for dinner. Due to low numbers, the Windjammer buffet wasn't open for dinner the first ...
