Dinner in main dining room - Excellent. We made our reservations the night before, or the morning of the same day of dining. Overall the food was very good. Service was great. Upon learning of dietary ...

Modernized and pretty but crowded and overdone

We chose this cruise for a quick weekend getaway without taking much time off work. We chose the Navigator because we sailed on Mariner after the refurbishment about 6 months ago and loved the Mariner renovation. ...

Honeymoon ... not that any staff recognised this. Having sailed on The Oasis previously, this cruise was way below the Oasis standard. Embarkation and disembarkation were good and fast. Cabin was good size but ...

Mildly disappointed

This was supposed to be really good value, including a full drinks package and all tips. Not sure that the price we paid was actually that good compared to others. Evening entertainment was very average - only ...

Not as good as my last Carnival Cruise

This cruise was okay. My wife had paid for a Happy Anniversary room decoration that was supposed to be ready when we arrived and it wasn't, ruining the surprise. The first night at dinner was confusion: They took ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We were not enthusiastic about the size, and the large number of passengers, but the itinerary was our goal. The ship was SO crowded - on sea days, the Promenade was ...

Good holiday but need to try something else for next year

Chose the itinerary and school holidays unavoidable so got what we expected. Ship slightly old fashioned but no where near as run down as some previous reviews I had read suggested. Staff have been cut back compared ...

"The Good, the Bad and the Extras"

I am seasoned cruiser, Platinum on one and have been on three other lines and this is the first cruise on Royal Caribbean. The ship is large, but not too large that you cannot find your way around easily. I chose ...

Nice but Mediocre

We used Uber to get to the port of Miami. This service has proved invaluable to us as we have moved up in years. The driver lifts our bags into the car as well as at the port. The Uber driver arrived within 2 ...

Not as good as our previous cruise on Navigator of the Seas

Getting on the ship was fantastic - so organised at Southampton. Drop cases off, drop car off, get in a small queue to get Sea pass, passport control, security and onto the ship. We were on ship just after ...

Mixed Bag

Hmmm, if I had to do it again.. Not so sure I'd opt for RCC. I'd probably go with a higher class ship. There were some good aspects about our cruise but these were largely generated by our own doing. We like to ...

Loved our Cabin 1838 Deck 12; Everything Else Just OK

Mixed feelings about RCCL. We are age 43 years old and thought we'd try a more "mature cruise". The ship was beautiful, loved our room, balcony view and deck. We felt that the first couple days were really great ...
