Pre cruise stressful. we were told we must get antigen test 24 hr b4 we embarked. this info was not relayed to us until 36 hr b4 sailing which caused us to scramble to meet RCI requirements. Also we had to provide an ARRIVECAN b4 boarding which was quite insane since ARRIVE CAN lapsed Sept. 30 and we did not sail into Victoria, Canada Oct.1 RCI created needless stress. NCL looks better and ...

Seeing three glaciers up close was just great!

We chose this cruise for access to glaciers and we're not disappointed in this regard. But we had really hoped to learn more about Alaska: its native culture, industry, and current issues and were disappointed that Royal Caribbean had nothing at all on board, either live or on the tv, for us to learn more. Partly because of the weather, the ping pong table, pickleball court, and rock climbing wall ...

Chose this cruise to use up our credits from a previously cancelled cruise due to COVID. Chose Alaska since it wouldn't require us to fly to the port. As we were boarding, we were given an updated itinerary that stated we wouldn't be cruising the glacier due to "lack of sunlight". Royal should be able to figure out if they can offer a cruise or not due to lack of sunlight! It felt like a ...

minor complaint

The cruise was booked as part of a tour from Australia. The cabins, staff, facilities were good as was the entertainment. Passengers were crowding into the lifts with no regard for social distancing...one cultural group in particular. Our main complaint was with the food. We felt that compared to previous cruises, the food was below expectations both in the buffet and dining room. Some dishes ...

Just to get this out of the way, this was our 23rd cruise, 6th on Royal. Quantum class of ships is my favorite for RCCL. Big enough to have a separate Music Hall but not to have to require reservations for shows like the Oasis class ships. Selected this voyage as it is one of the few that spends a full day in Victoria, BC. However, it skips Ketchican. Very few kids on the ship which was another ...

Okay. Y'all had me really worried after I had booked and read your reviews. Like, I was even calling Royal Caribbean to ask about their cancellation policy. Turned out that we had an absolutely amazing time and agree that it was one of our best cruises yet. We selected the 11am boarding time (first available) because we have a three year old daughter and didn't want to risk waiting in line for ...

My girlfriend had never been to Alaska (me 5 times) and since Royal Caribbean is our favorite cruise line (me - 77 cruises so far) we chose the Quantum. The ship was nice, huge (168,000 tons) and very clean. We upgraded to an obstructed view balcony for $400 extra. The bed was very comfortable and there was a ton of storage space. Our cabin attendant was from China and was very good. We tipped him ...

Chose this cruise to Alaska as it was my husband's bucket list and I had been on a Royal cruise to Alaska 11 years ago that was fantastic. They changed the itinerary due to loss of engines so we did not get to see a glacier, we were disappointed but things happen and we dealt with it and still had a great time. In my humble opinion since this was my 15th cruise on Royal, they have gone ...

Disappointed in this Royal Caribbean Alaska Cruise

Friends and I cruised with Royal Caribbean on 8/22/2022 for what was booked as "7 Night Alaska Glacier Cruise". RC changed the itinerary of this cruise on August 3 for our August 22, 2022 departure, well into the time period for cancellation without losing all our money. The excuse was trouble with one of the four engines that they couldn't obtain parts to repair, so they had to cruise at slower ...

This was a great cruise. Loved the shows, the food was great, they cleaned our cabin daily with fresh linens. The crew and staff were professional and friendly. Loved the spa but the only thing is I bought some products to take home and got to the airport and they made me take out the big bottles and pitch them cause they were too big and these products weren't cheap. I wasted my money. I feel ...
