Great experience but this ship was made for the Caribbean

|

If you're looking for a modern ship with every amenity imaginable look no further. Royal Caribbean certainly outdid themselves with the Oasis class of ships. A ship this size begs the question, is it possible for a ...

Just Got Back

First let me start off by saying we did not pay for this cruise. This was an incentive trip from one of my husband's vendors so our experience may be a little different in some aspects. We are 48 years old and were ...

Nice Ship; Very Basic Cabin; Cruise Director Not the Best

This ship is certainly big and there are so many beautiful features to see. The shows are brilliant particularly Mamma Mia but the Ice Games show and the Aqua Show were also brilliant. The food was a little below ...

Very Pleasant Experience

Booked this trip for my wife's "decade" birthday. Thought it would be a good way to see different parts of Europe. However, a day in each port only gives you a small taste of each location. But that is what we ...

Great Ship; Not Too Crowded Considering the Size

We have sailed on RC many times, and Barcelona was the easiest port ever in terms of embarkation. Upon arrival at the ship, porters met us at the taxi and took our luggage immediately, so we didn't have to drag ...
