Underwhelming in my opinion!

We chose this cruise because we were celebrating my parents 50th Anniversary and they didn't want to fly so out of LA we have two options, Carnival or RCCL. Having cruised Carnival many times I suggested RCCL thinking / knowing it would be a better fit. All I can say is that I was very underwhelmed by everything on this cruise. I was on this same cruise the end of January and had a great time, ...

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 ...

EXCURSION BUYER BEWARE My husband and I were on 6 day western Caribbean Explorer of the Sea cruise that departed from Miami June 5. Overall, nice, good entertainment and hard working room and dining crews. The huge disappointment came from Jamaica Falmouth, where they canceled our excursion of choice to Rose Hall, after an hour of waiting, and offered Go Native excursion instead. By that ...

Background- this was about our 15th cruise on Royal and we are diamond level. It was a husband, wife and 21 yr old daughter cruise. There were lots of disappointments as well as some good times. We are not snobs but we paid a lot of money for this cruise and it wasn't all what we remembered cruising to be like. Overall, any cruise is a good cruise and you have to roll with the punches which we ...

Great crew, but not at 100%

I selected this cruise as a getaway. It wasn't long, and it wasn't exotic, but it did push me into Diamond Plus territory. Navigator of the Seas is running three day / four day cruises out of Los Angeles to Ensenada and Catalina Island. I selected a four night cruise. Balcony staterooms were not available when I booked, but I put in a minimal bid for one from their RoyalUp offer, and scored ...

Our cruise on the Navigator of the Seas took place at the end of May in 2022. The cruise was booked as a way to get out of town and cruise again after waiting way too long for other cruises that had been cancelled on us. I am normally a bigger fan of NCL than Royal, but my wife prefers Royal. We only live about 25 miles from the port and have cruised out of there on multiple occasions. We are ...

RCCL Has Gone Downhill

RCCL used to be my favorite cruise line. I have over 30 cruises, including RCCL, CCL, NCL, and DIS. I couldn't wait to get back on a RCCL ship after years of cruise cancellations due to the pandemic. I did two CCL cruises this year, in Feb and Mar. But I kept telling people how much better RCCL was. Well....not anymore. CCL is way better now, IMHO. What was worse since my last RCCL cruise ...

Covid testing

Royal Caribbean have now introduced a fifty five dollar covid testing for every passenger doing a back to back cruise. Although it had cost us sixty euros for both of us to get a covid test at Rome airport to embark on the cruise in the first place, RCL have now introduced this extortionate charge for passengers doing a back to back cruise (two one week cruises in our case). So please be aware of ...

A fun little getaway over memorial day weekend on the Navigator of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Overview: We did a quick 3-night cruise on Navigator of the Seas out of Los Angeles over the Memorial Day weekend. We were limited on time, so we felt this would be doable. According to our waiter, this was the first cruise sailing at full capacity since the start of the pandemic. Because it was a holiday cruise and was full, pricing was more expensive than what I’ve typically ...

I apologize in advance for the length of this review. We chose this cruise due to the ports of call and based on the past experience we had on a Royal Caribbean Med cruise. Unfortunately, this time paled in comparison to our previous trip. I recognize that this was the first sailing of Rhapsody of the Seas since Covid but being as it was the last ship in the RC fleet to launch, you would have ...
