Overall fun, just a couple negative experiences

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Navigator of the Seas

2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

Overall this cruise was well done—everything went smoothly, staff was friendly and helpful, food was well made, embarkation and disembarkation was a clear, simple and speedy process, a wide variety of activities were offered for varying interests. Unfortunately, there were two instances that quite negatively impacted my experience. The first being, I attended a minute-to-win it event that was ...

Not so Royal afterall and not what we expected from RCL

Review for a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Navigator of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

This cruise was a last min memorial trip. We have been on 20+ cruises/various ships RCL, NCL, Carnival and Disney. Did Carnival same itinerary 2022 memorial and had a great time. RCL this was by far the worst cruise experience. Embark Day: prk lot 80% full but they refuse to let anymore cars in even with handicap they directed us to a lot blocks away and we had to wait for a shuttle take us to the ...

Shoddy, old ship

Review for a Canada & New England Cruise on Liberty of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

This ship hasn't been renovated since it was launched in 2009 and it really shows. A cruise ship is a floating hotel. This is like a cheap roadside motel. One that is insanely crowded so you wait in line for everything. Every detail is wrong from the thin, stained towels to the table cloths in the main dining room, also covered in stains. We got to the show 30 minutes early and were turned away ...

Best first cruise!

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Independence of the Seas

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This cruise has me hungry for more! The staff was wonderful. Igede, Ramazan and Joko were stand outs! The entertainment was riveting! There were ice shows, kareoke, juggling acts, Broadway shows and much more! Honestly, something for everyone. The food was magnificent. The dining experience was truly divine. (Igede made it a much more pleasant dining experience) Ramazan was efficient and ...

Amazing port intensive cruise with a group of 36 friends

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Enchantment of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

One of our friends had been bumped from a scheduled cruise by a charter 5 years ago. Between additional charter bumps , better pricing for just making a new booking and Covid they finally landed on this cruise. We have a group of friends who travel in a pack and as soon as one family booked, we ended up a group of 36 going on this cruise. We originally were booked on Brilliance but then the new ...

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Anthem of the Seas

Juliet Jones
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Boat still in good condition, cabin was nice. MDR food was variable. Desserts on the whole were ok but the starters and main were usually luke warm when they arrived. Food was dry, not enough sauce or gravy so had to ask for extra. Lots of items removed from the menu, ie cheese and biscuits, melon medley. Waiter was friendly enough but had little personality, assistant waiter was great. ...

Oasis of the seas

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Oasis of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 20s

Departure port is important for me. I love this ship, even tho it is a bit too big for my liking. The review is mainly because of the cabin. Even tho it doesn't sell as an obstructed view cabin, this cabin has at least 50% obstruction. I wouldn't have chosen it if I knew about it. Everything else is not bad, except of the Main Dining Room food, which it was changed, and you can no longer ...

Great ship, sorting a few niggles would make it superb.

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Explorer of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

In a strange way, ships like the Explorer could be considered 'perfect' cruise ships. They have a little bit of everything. I read an article recently that said ships like Mariner of the Seas (and therefore Explorer) represent the best cruise value you can get at the moment. Everything you want is there, even if some of it could be improved to make it perfect. The famous 'promenade' layout of ...

Birthday Blast to Birthday Bust

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Grandeur of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 20s

The Grandeur of the Seas is by far the worse ship I’ve ever been on by FAR. It was rumored that this ship was going to be retired a few years ago and it should have. I am not sure what sparked the decision to keep it floating and running trips—especially a 7 day cruise, but that was by far the worse decision you could’ve made from a customer perspective. The entire ship is old and raggedy, ...

Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage Charter Cruise (8 days)

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Adventure of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Royal Caribbean stateroom and dining options were a disappointment. We had a balcony room, the balcony was full of sandblasting dust on the chairs and table. The interior sofa was heavily soiled with stains and the carpet was dirty with red juice or wine stains. The wood cabinetry was grimy and sticky. RC should spend more time updating the interior of staterooms instead of building bigger boats. ...
