Royal Caribbean Ruined my Honeymoon

My fiancé (at the time) and I chose this cruise because Royal Caribbean’s travel planner was so friendly, informative and said they would have something special planned for us if we sailed with them because it was our honeymoon. Because of this, we sailed with them. Later, we received an email saying something was broken with the boat and they needed to change our destination. We still ...

Weird lack of ocean views on this ship

After more than 25 cruises, I found one where I couldn't wait for it to end. Literally, after about 4 days, I was wishing I could just get off the ship and never go back. But first the good parts: Room steward was TERRIFIC. Main dining room late seating food was always good. Ship was clean, lots to do, never felt too crowded. Rising Tide and Trellis Bar are both fun, but no ocean views (see ...

We were celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary, 60th birthday and an engagement. We had 11 family members from 3 different locations coming together for this cruise. December 30th. We boarded the ship and was advised to head up to the pool bar to get a drink and relax until the buffet was open and our cabins were ready. Upon getting to the pool bar, there was only 1 bartender, and her attitude ...

This was our annual organizations cruise and we were not informed till about the day before that we were not going to our original destinations, Labadee and Falmouth but to Nassau and Coco Cay. I don't care for Nassau and that's not where I prefer to go. We had no choice. They told us it was due to the weather, though in hindsight it seems like that was not really the case but that Jamaica ...

Let me first say the entertainment, stateroom attendant and dining room waiters were great! However........ Don’t forget to pack your patience! We planned this trip for our four teenagers during spring break. We decided to not cancel and move forward despite the coronavirus. Which we probably should had canceled but we decided to give it a shot. Huge disappointment. First ...

This is my 3rd cruise and all 3 have been with Royal Caribbean. Unfortunately this one left a bad mark and the way things were handled more or less ruined my vacation for me and left me questioning if I’ll ever cruise with Royal again. To start things off embarkation was delayed first reportedly because of fog. Royal Caribbean contacted us and let us know there would be another update in 2 ...

We chose this cruise because I it was kid friendly. We celebrated 60th and 40th birthdays and went with a large group. Cons When contacting customer service before our trip, our group was misinformed many times. Not as baby friendly has we hoped. We brought our 9 month old baby. Couldn’t get a high chair the first night and almost didn’t get one the second night. Had to go on a scavenger ...

This was my 6th cruise, my 1st with Royal Caribbean and definitely my LAST with them. The check in process went fairly well until we were told to wait to board in 3 different areas by 3 different people. We never were sure that we were where we needed to be. Once on board, I immediately noticed the cleanliness or lack thereof. It was obvious that attention to detail was missing here. The ...
