Great ship, but I need more than hardware.

The difference between RCI and others: Great ships - and you need to take what they offer. So out of 80 cruises only 4 were with RCI: Sorry - but their service level is just not ours. Once in a lifetime I wanted to the the largest ship in the world. But honestly spoken I do not need it. The shows are the best (after Disney) which I saw but that is not enough to keep me loyal with ...

We did the Mediterranean Cruise followed by the transatlantic back to Fort Lauderdale in October/November. In defense of the ship, it is a beautiful ship and has so much to offer the cruiser whether a family or just a couple. On the other hand, it was way too crowded with 5500 guest and 2400 crew. If you don't make reservations in advance, you stand in very long lines for hours after getting on ...

Positives: Excellent entertainment activities. Cabins adequate for purpose but very clean. Majority of dining room staff excellent. Beautiful ship. Ship very easy to get around. Great cruise director, activities manager and captain. Mama Mia, water show Blue Planet and ice shows unbelievable. Negatives. Activities held in venues that are too small for number of participating people ...

The Allure of the Seas is a beautiful ship, but on our cruise, we found it far to crowded. We had to queque up all the time and it became quite frustrating. When we booked our cruise 10 months beforehand, I booked into 'My Time Dining' what we got was an appointed dining time of 8.45pm every night, which was to late for us. On the 3rd day we got it changed to 6.30pm but we mostly had to eat in the ...

It's not definite that we will rebook on this cruise line, as I had hoped.

This was to be a very special trip for us. A 25th celebration, 25 years in the making to travel to Europe and experience a great ship, which was our first cruise and I had hoped a start to several cruises in the future. I had heard from several on Cruise Critic that it was a great ship; we were starting at the top. I don't come away with that 100% certainty to book future cruises I had ...

This was my 8th Cruise. I totally agree with a previous review that our cruise was very impacted by the large group of 3000 and not in a good way. We had 5 port days and finding a place to have quick breakfast was a challenge. There were long line ups for the Windjammer that could be 15-20 minutes. So we left to find another place to have quick breakfast - Johnny Rockets worked but opened at ...

As an experienced traveller, I was looking forward to my first RC cruise. There were definitely positives, but also a few large negatives. Food - good selection, no complaints. Not excellent food but definitely good. Windjammer has long wait times in peak hours. Dining room - slow service. Disappointed by attire on formal nights ... people wearing Jean shorts, etc were allowed in. ...

We cruise with Royal because they are a very good cruise line with a great choice of entertainment, excellent staff and a high standard in dining options. As well as that they allways have a very good range of nationalities which adds to the cruise experience. We were very upset and disappointed with this trip. We ended up on a ship holding a convention for 4,400 people from Central and South ...

the ship was much the same as the Oasis of the seas, with one major difference, the staff were not friendly. the check in staff at the port were very friendly and were most efficient, we got through no problem. our cabin was on the aft side, all the amenities that we wanted to do were at the other end of the ship. this meant we had a 10 min walk to breakfast and any show that we wanted to see. we ...

The following document is a short outline of our experiences on our European Cruise and what we learned. Date: 05 and 06 October (Monday and Tuesday) We flew direct from Detroit to Rome. Flying direct is more convenient than changing planes. However, if you have the option, it is easier if you land in Europe later in the day. We landed in Rome at about 9:00 AM. We got to our hotel in ...
