Good cruise. Length of stay at each port too short.

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

PORTS: Good cruise although length of stay at each port too short; needs to be longer to make the most of each stop. Some of the disembarking at ports was rather chaotic, with queues of guests winding through several stair wells for some time Not great when the length of stay at each port is short.

SUNBED: the sunbed/towel situation is out of control. No where near enough beds for the amount of guests onboard, resulting in guests 'reserving' sunbeds from sunrise; even though they have no intent of using them for hours (sometimes reserving them, whilst they go off ship!). Staff should stick to the apparent rule of beds not to be reserved for more than 30 minutes; and actually remove the towels.

FOOD: Food excellent although I am gluten intolerant and options for me were quite limited.

DRINKS: Very affordable deal with full drinks package free; well worth it.

BALCONY: Balcony is a must as there is very limited room on deck, with little space and limited sun beds for the amount of guests on board. Balcony provides your own space.

All in all, a good holiday but Royal Caribbean can improve.

Cabin Review

Spacious balcony. Deck 9. Overall good expeience and plenty of room.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Gibraltar

Due to the price of shore excursions, we explored on our own, on foot. Pro's and con's of this is that you don't necessarily find everything, but equally you have your own unique day.

The queue for the cable car was 2 hours so we had to leave it.

Alicante

Due to the price of shore excursions, we explored on our own, on foot. Pro's and con's of this is that you don't necessarily find everything, but equally you have your own unique day.

Found our way to the castle which was excellent - super views.

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Due to the price of shore excursions, we explored on our own, on foot. Pro's and con's of this is that you don't necessarily find everything, but equally you have your own unique day. Good beaches and shopping.

Sardinia

Due to the price of shore excursions, we explored on our own, on foot. Pro's and con's of this is that you don't necessarily find everything, but equally you have your own unique day. Eventually found a mini bus to the beach which cost 10 euro each. Disappointing that the cruise is a 'beaches' cruise yet at each port, you generally have to find your own beach; somehow.

Seville

Cadiz - excellent walking and exploring straight from ship.

Lisbon

Due to the price of shore excursions, we explored on our own, on foot. Pro's and con's of this is that you don't necessarily find everything, but equally you have your own unique day.
