RCI comes off as only caring about ways to take your money.
"Sailed on Allure of the Seas. Huge ship. From an engineering standpoint extremely impressive, some shows were good, and that's about the best thing I can about the cruise. RCI made this huge ship with tons of..."Read More

Terrible service and unfriendly crew

We are loyal RC Platinum members. The Allure is a beautiful ship but the service and food is not up to RC standards as we have experienced on previous cruises. The crew appeared to just be going thru the motions without any enthusiasm. If you got in their way they would give you a dirty look and expect you to move rather than them moving for you. I have never experienced such terrible service ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 20s

While there were great things about this cruise, overall I was somewhat glad for it to be over by the end. This was my first cruise and the experience was generally disappointing, with some good parts. Embarkation was awful. Complete chaos and the staff along the way were very Curt and seemed irritated with us at times. By the time we were actually on board, we felt like we just wanted to go ...

Everything on this ship is over crowded. Lines and long waits for almost all the dining venues. Everywhere we went aboard this ship was crowded except for the Diamond Lounge. This was a Caribbean cruise and the design of the ship, open on the inside, means the ship was very warm throughout. We had our room thermostat turned all the way down and the room never really cooled off. Lots to do but ...

Fifth cruise with RCI - will be the last

We were a little apprehensive about this cruise ship having previously been on the Oasis and concluded that these ships are just too large and the ratios of staff to passengers is poor generally resulting in a somewhat underwhelming overall experience. However it was a celebration cruise and the itinerary was the reason for joining this particular cruise. We only started cruising 8 years ago, ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted to share the experience of a nice ship and warm weather with a great friend. My cabin and overall experience on board was great. The dining room service was wonderful as was the food. My experience when being off the ship is another story. My first excursion on a glass bottom boat in the Bahamas was terrible. Not only did we see few fish, but I got injured ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

I've been told for years that I need to try a cruise. Everything is included, you visit multiple exotic locations, the people are so nice...Ok, well, not everything is included and when you're a 1st timer (they have ways of determining this when you're booking), they do the best they can to nickel and dime you. The included restaurant fare is typical of a standard all-you-can-eat buffet in the US, ...

Lots of luxury and little variety of fun aboard.

I really would have liked to see more variety on the boat, lots of luxury, lots of people, few pools and slow service in the restaurants. The shows more of the same. It's not a "fun ship". The service charges you consume that are not included are very high. There is no variety of activities in the pool or when the boat is on the sea. Only the 70 's party was super fun for everyone. Captain's ...

All of my other cruises, 5+, have been on Carnival. I wanted to try RCI because the ships seemed bigger and better. I was wrong. Yes, the ship was big and pretty but not better. I felt nickeled and dimed and was bored. The rooms are smaller, parties were hard to come by. Shows were okay. While the comedians were funny, they should have new materiel by the end of the cruise. The Quest was ...

Allure of seas embarkation was fast and organized with pleasant people directing you. Get a diagram of ship at check in as it is helpful to get your bearings. The front of the ship is the entertainment venues and the back of the ship is food venues. The boardwalk and aqua theatre are in the back with the sports deck ( flow rider, rock climbing wall. Putt putt golf,,ping pong). The boardwalk is ...

My husband and I cruised with RC for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time (2008). We cruised again with RC in 2011 with my in-laws, parents and young child and we couldn't wait to do it again with our family. We were excited that we would be able to take part in the children's program and have some down time. The kids program was good, and my children usually looked forward to doing it. I could ...
