Magnificent ship with staff that went out if there way to help out and make my family cruise a holiday not to forget. There was so much food in quantity and diversity and the quality was second to none. All over the ship there was different entertainment going on so everyone had a brilliant time. We were all treated like royalty and every corner you turned there was a happy smiling faced member of crew. From the moment we stepped on board to the excursions, the staff couldn't do enough for us. This was our first cruise and we were unsure if we would like the experience. We loved the fact we could step off our floating hotel and see different cultures and people. Take in the architecture and sample local foods and wine. All excursions were professionally undertaken and we personally couldn't wait to get back onboard at the end of the day to feast in one of the many restaurants. We are now converted, roll on the next cruise Read Less

We chose this ship and iteniary to celbrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We are experienced cruisers ,this being our 23rd cruise with RCCl and we have 31 cruises all together. We sailed with our group of 20 long time friends. We spent 3 days in London prior to the cruise and traveled to South Hampton on a privately charted bus. We found embarkcation to be very efficient which resulted in us having lunch about 20 minutes after arriving at the pier. The Navigator was in pristine condition following her makeover.The food in the dining room ,was the best we have had in a long time. It reminded us of our early days of cruising with generous portions and fast service Both our waiter and assistant waiter were very helpful in providing information on the various dishes. The service was very efficient but at the same time we never felt rushed. The Cruise director Clo was fanatstic. It is the first time where we have found the cruise director actually stop and have conversations with people she met during her walks around the ship. The entertainment was fantastic. Each show had a different theme ranging from production shows to magicians , a fantastic violinist and finally ending with a tribute to the Beatles,by 4 young men who looked and sounded just like the Fab 4. That show lasted 1 hour and 10 minutes with the audience standing and singing along for most of the show. The shore excursions were for the most part very nice ,the one port that could have been skipped was Agadir.The place was filthy with garbage strewn all over. All in all it was probably the best cruise we have taken in a long time. Thank you RCCL for providing an excellent product Read Less

For the ports of call and the overall Royal Caribbean experience. We arrived on 9/29 at the air port by the RC transportation service who where on time, warm and welcoming. We decided not to come a day in advance but to fly directly to London and onto the ship. The embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. The overall experience was really great. The weather was a little colder than expected however, the RC experience was executed as normal. The ship, entertainment, activities, service and excursions were worth the trip. We would no doubt go again. My cabin however was a different story... Our cabin on the onset seem to be nice however after a closer look the story was different. I was accustom to having good accommodations, however, I began to notice several things: The room had not being dusted or vacuumed properly; I notice and picked up huge dust bunnies that I personally gathered with the door stop. The same underneath the desk. The bathroom was smelly due to septic problem which caused the toilet to be black inside. I did report it and an engineer came the next day. The stateroom attendant tried to assist but to no avail. Nevertheless, the smell was unwelcomed and continued. Also, it seemed that the cabin had not been clean properly. The towels were thrown onto the shelves and strings were hanging. This showed me the person did not care or was lazy. We were given a bottle of champagne for the inconvenience. Read Less

We chose the cruise of where the ship went to . We have sailed with Royal Caribbean before, and had a great experience this time no exception. Breakfast and lunch we enjoy in the windjammer, only dinner we like to eat in the main dining room no extra pounds to gain Excursions went great lots of fun and on and of board went easy, and we got lots of information on the excursions. Information was easy to get and everything provided on each part of the ship ik needed. The daily cruise paper was very helpfull in understanding what was going on on the ship where and on what time , even the weather forecast and time changes where repeatedly shared to not miss anything. So go on a cruise be Nice to the staff they work very hard for you, and iT Will not hurt to smile or be Nice . Read Less

Boarding was quick and painless - 40 minutes from having our cases taken away from the car, and then parking in Southampton, we were in the Windjammer having a drink and choosing lunch. In the stateroom by 1pm, cases there, and we went down to dinner at 6 relaxed and looking forward to dinner. The food was good - and there was plenty of choice. The main restaurant served daily specials with a core menu of regular choices, all to a good standard, and the Windjammer at lunchtime offered around a dozen choices from the buffet including a daily carvery, Indian selections, Chinese, pasta, as well as various casseroles/pies. There was a good selection of salads as well. If we chose something that wasn't to our taste, then we got something else, and ate well. Service was exceptional. Staff were friendly, and quick. Wine came quickly, and with a smile, and nothing was too much trouble. There was a comprehensive entertainment programme which we enjoyed. Again, if we weren't enjoying something we left. There was always something to do. We avoided the excursions but went ashore under our own steam - particularly enjoyable were Cadiz, Malaga, and Avaccio. Cabin was roomy, clean and the shower was excellent. A great choice of bars Disembarkation was smooth and painless, we left the cases out on the last night, and walked off without any delay, where they were easy to find. From ship to car in 30 minutes, and then the drive home. I take the view that you get out what you put in - looking at some of the other reviews makes me sad for the people who wrote them Beware the moaners - they will suck the life out of you if you let them. I guess being miserable and wanting to share it is a lifestyle choice for some people but don't let them ruin your holiday or affect your choices. This was a great experience, and one we highly recommend. Read Less

This cruise was made brilliant by the ship staff and the entertainment. The Moroccan stop was disappointing as its definitely not as good as Tangier where we have been before. The canaries stops are what you would expect and great for the winter sun. LaHavre is way too far from paris so we went to a quaint little fishing villiage instead. I have to say I really enjoyed the stops and some were great for relaxing and others great for exploring. The food was good as always although as always the windjammer was very hectic with food you would expect from a cafe rather than somewhere with fine dining. I think they have cut out too much of the windjammer for the 2 speciality restaurants they inserted as this has undoubtedly stolen space from the free dining of the windjammer. I would also say that the dining room was also better than the speciality restaurants and so I wouldn't bother paying for those again. We enjoyed this cruise so much though that we did book our next one while on board!! Read Less
