I chose this cruise because of the convenience of going out of Bayonne and only wanted to be away from home for five days. The ship is glitzy and clean and very large. In spite of traveling in August when the ship was at full capacity, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the experiences had by many friends and family. My family and I enjoyed everything about the cruise with the exception of the cabin space. We didn't spend any time in our room unless we were sleeping. ... Read more

Took a cruise for our anniversary and choose Enchantment of the Seas. Just wanted to do a short trip. Was a little discouraged when I saw the outside of the ship. Needs some work done on the outside, but when I got onboard and saw how ... Read more

Positives: Excellent customer service. Dinning room staff phenomenal. Jr suites give you so much more room (you can dress in your closet). Embarkation, security and customs made very simple for the traveler. Ship layout ... Read more

Our MDR waitress, Moureen, made this a fantastic experience for us. That's the lead. We live close to Galveston, so that certainly affected our decision for departure ports. Ports of Call in Roatan, Costa Maya and Cozumel also figured ... Read more

This is our 8th or 9th RCL cruise but the first time on one of gigantic ships - the Oasis. Way too many people! Can't get near a pool or hot tub, there are lines at mealtimes into the Windjammer café, if you don't make reservations ... Read more

Family members chose the cruise. Disappointed in Jamacia. Thought the beach would be close by like at Hatti. I enjoyed that beach. Couzmel beach was little disappointing but fun. I did not do any excursions felt a little pricy. Since I am ... Read more

The Allure of the Seas is a great ship. Never felt like 6,000 people were sailing with you. The ship has so many activities and different opportunities for entertainment. The dinner options were plentiful and we spent most of our ... Read more

We return to RC every time we go on a cruise. Honestly, you would be extremely hard-pressed to not have a great time. The food and service is exemplary, the staff are incredibly helpful and polite, and the ship is so clean you could ... Read more

Our first cruise, taking teenagers and parents (senior citizens). The check-in experience was complete confusion. We had three staterooms, all booked together, located next to each other, but all had to be checked in separately. So we ... Read more

We had a fantastic experience on our maiden cruise. There was no problem during embarkation as we reached the port very early. Dis embarkation was even better organised. Kids enjoyed the cruise very much but the 11 year old felt that the ... Read more
