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 ...

This ship is way too big and carries too many people. We did the western European cruise so every day there were five to six thousand people attempting to have breakfast at 7 am in order to make their tours. The line for the main dining room was huge. We had to settle for the fare of the Park Cafe which was rubber eggs on cardboard muffins. The coffee was good. We did order room service for ...

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 ...

Embarkation was the fastest and easiest ever! The logistic of this ship is amazing. The shows are very high quality. Don't miss Mamma Mia's show. This Cruise has 5 ports of call. Naples, Italy: close to the Amalfi coast, we visited Sorrento, Pompéi and Positano (on the Amalfi coast) with Fabrizio (Leasure Italy) and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a perfect day in this ...

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 ...

I consider myself a fairly seasoned traveller who is not "high maintenance", but this experience prompted me to alert others to proceed with caution when booking on Allure of the Seas. Before you book, especially if the cruise seems quite full even though you are booking far in advance, INSIST on knowing if there is a big group on the cruise because it can ruin your experience. In our case, ...

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. ...

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 ...
