I really wanted to like RC. I really did. But several things have clinched the fact that I won’t cruise with them again. Firstly, their nickel-and-diming and high prices. ATM fee was a ridiculous 6.50. Alcoholic drinks came out to $15+ after taxes and mandatory gratuity. A soda cost over $4. And let’s not even mention the paid restaurants on board… most are $65 per person for dinner. Come on. It ...

NOT WORTH IT! BE PREPARED TO DO YOUR OWN MAINTENANCE IN AN OWNER'S SUITE ):

Forget spending the big bucks for the Owner's Suite unless you are ready to do your own maintenance in this suite (1300). Yes it is nice and spacious. That email you get from the concierge is for show only. Do not expect to get what you ask for. And you will be very lucky if anyone answers the phone. Don't open the sheers as the screws will come out of the railing. The TV, well - you better ...

We sailed on the Freedom of the Seas from Sept 12 - 16 to the Bahamas. We picked this ship because of the Ice rink on board. Embarkation: Super easy! We were suite passengers and also Key passengers so we were escorted to the suite lounge for check-in and waiting. We were on the boat by 11. They said that lunch started at 11, but it didn't start until 12, and our room wasn't ready until ...

Needed to get away for a few days. This seemed like a good choice as the port was only 2 1/2 away and it was a short 4 night break. In all fairness to RCL I knew it was a “family oriented cruise line” but I foolishly believed that children would be in school this early in the school year. Boy was I wrong! I would estimate that there were at 500-700 screaming, crying, running, jumping, coughing ...

Check in at the port was complicated as there were many cruisers on the previous sailing still trying to leave as new passengers were arriving. Overall, once we were parked, the rest of the check-in went quickly. We were onboard by 11:15am. We had an interior room located in the forward part of the ship on deck 11. The room was clean, everything worked, and very quiet. Rarely did we hear any ...

Over all the trip was great. Few minor mishaps on embarkment day and the one day my eye glass flew overboard. Embarkment was a chaotic. No direction really. There were set boarding times but no one was following them. Ours was at 11:30 and we had the Key program (highly recommended, at least for us). Key - early check-in, special security and check-in lines, free lunch on the first day, free ...

Review for Anthem of the Seas to Baltic Sea

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Wow - our first cruise since the pandemic emerged did not disappoint. We chose this cruise because of the itinerary: Northern Spain (2 ports), Lisbon, 3 Canary Islands and Madeira, places we have never visited before. Anthem is a large ship at 15 decks and about 4500 passengers and is certainly a much different type of ship than the Oasis Class types. Activities aplenty in board. We loved the ...

Considering the low cost we paid for this sailing I was not sure what to expect. Wow what a truly wonderful week. I enjoyed every moment. It was full Royal Caribbean to the max. The crew were amazing, we walked directly into the MDR no wait. Chops and Giovanni's we're amazing and I was very happy with the MDR and Windjammer. Entertainment was excellent as always. We loved this ship so much we're ...
