The Ship We thought that Royal Caribbean was supposed to be a step up from Carnival. While the food was better we preferred Carnival. Pros: Embarkation was a dream! I’ve never had such an easy time boarding a cruise. ... Read more

The price was really good for a family with young kids to travel with great stops - Singapore - Vietnam - Hong kong, Okinawa and Shanghai. The ports were good however pretty fair out for the average traveller (one port being 2 hours one ... Read more

PROS: Windjammer had the most amazing range of meals, only went to the Main Restaurant once, much more selection in Windjammer evidenced by the difficulty finding a table. Loved the pub and Promenade café, spent many hours in ... Read more

In fairness, I should say that this is the first time we've been on a cruise and I don't think cruising is for us. Having said that, this was pretty terrible by any standards. On the whole the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient: ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its ports of call and Royal Caribbean as we had a great experience on freedom of the seas in the Caribbean. I have to state that the staff onboard were as always first class and the cruise lines biggest asset ... Read more

Mariner of the Seas is just too big for us, too many people, pushing and shoving at times to get to the buffet, even dining room had problems with mixed orders and warm food. Was it new staff perhaps still being trained? Always seemed ... Read more

Our first journey to this part of the world will not be the most memorable from the cruise itinerary perspective. Too short visit to the classic City of Hong Kong and an absolute waste of time visiting Nah Trang in Vietnam. To arrive in ... Read more

Having heard good reviews of RC, my husband and I decided to go on board. No regrets. The crew and staff are very attentive to our needs and exude warmth and professionalism. We only wanted to be on the liner so we skipped exploring ... Read more

Ovation Of The Seas was a completely new experience for us as we usually sailed on their normal style ships ie the Royal Promenade, Outdoor Promenade, and the 3 levels of MDR. It was their Hi-tech new ship with new and advance technology ... Read more

We were a little nervous about this cruise after reading the reviews but thoroughly enjoyed it. Embarkation in Shanghai is chaotic but with Emerald status we were able to bypass the madness. Print your baggage tags at home and as soon ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was a short, cheap cruise which fitted in perfectly with a cruise we'd already booked. I was also interested in travelling on a mega ship with all the extra facilities. I had read so many bad reports ... Read more

I spent much time reading reviews on China and a cruise on Quantum of the Seas, and quite frankly, I just cannot understand some of reviews. When you travel to another country, you are the outsider, and must confirm to the customs and ... Read more

We have previously sailed on the Quantum before so we knew what this ship would look and feel like. We were not wow'd as much this time round but only because we had already seen it all before. We had read some mixed reviews about Ovation ... Read more

Booked this cruise for only two weeks after the Mariner of the Seas cruise. Being a newer ship, I was hopeful for better food. I was disappointed. On both ships, the dining room and buffet food are just not good. It sounds good reading ... Read more

We had to check out this massive ship after cruising with four other cruise companies. Lots of activities and very impressive robotic presentation at TWO70 venue with limited seating. Reservation did not mean anything! There was very ... Read more
