Dirty SCORPION Nightmare

I chose this cruise because of price and was told that Royal Caribbean had the best and biggest boats with alot of activities. This was the absolute worst experience ever. The entry was underwhelming and the entertainment with games was boring. To top it off it was dirty and smelly and move had to move because of the vomit smell. The rooms are tiny too and service was terrible at the bar and ...

I went with my sister and her son trying to have a great summer get away with all the kids. I feel like this was a waste of good earned money. We had not been anywhere since COVID and was trying to have some fun. The kids were so bored I had to spend additional money for Wi-Fi on a daily basis. The food was horrible and did not taste fresh. If it was not for the pizza my kids would have ...

The whole thing began very badly, nearly deadly in fact. Within two hours of boarding we ate at the Windjammer, where apparently the chef puts cracked pepper in EVERYTHING. I have an anaphylactic response to peppercorns. There was no warning that it was in the food. It is a rare allergy but still, cracked pepper nor peppercorns belong in every dish. I tried something there a second time (pasta ...

Sailed on May 4 2022 for 5 day cruise. The plus- the staff was very fine, although it seemed that there was a shortage of staff, at times. The entertainment was good, not great, except for the Tango show which was spectacular. The ship is in good shape and our cabin was fine. The Minus- the dining room food at dinner was really bad. There were a few good choices, and overall, the food was ...

Joined family members on this 5 night cruise as a quick get away. We flew into Houston Hobby Airport the day prior to the cruise and used Island Breeze Shuttle for our transport to Galveston ($150 roundtrip for two ppl). When you make reservations with Island Breeze they get your flight number and arrival time, the driver will text you on where to meet him. We stayed at the Hilton Galveston ...

I choose this cruise to celebrate my birthday, and the convenience of leaving from close to home. This is one of the smaller ships we have been on, it was very nice, but showing its aging in different areas. One of them were the pool and hot tub areas. Very hard for anyone a little older to get in and out of them. The food was good, nothing exceptional, we went to 2 specialty restaurants, ...

This was my 33rd cruise -- a 25th anniversary gift from my mother. She chose this cruise because it was a great bargain, and we prefer a smaller ship without the bells and whistles. We live on Long Island, so Baltimore is only 3 hours away. We have sailed on Carnival, Celebrity, Holland America, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean, with the most cruises on Royal Caribbean. Embarkation was so easy! ...

I will start with a little back-round, we are Diamond cruisers with over 17 cruises behind us. We prefer drive up ports due to luggage and usually purchasing large amounts of alcohol to bring back with us. We are active people and like to get involved in various activities going on every day, and enjoy the MDR and Entertainment each night. That being said, this was one the the best cruises we have ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was a family first time cruise with a group of 18. We didn't know what to expect when picking ships so we went with the Grander. When first boarding the ship you could tell that this was a very OLD ship with a lot of use. We had 5 children teenagers who could not find any other children on board to hang out with.The teens club was very old and boarding they were to say to us. They spent most ...

Mostly Lovely Crew and Ship; Not So Much the Food

The port in Baltimore had organized embarkation and debarkation. I was not prepared for the VERY long uphill walk to the ship. Using a cane, it was difficult. The up-selling began before the long walk to the ship and continued throughout the cruise. That was a huge turn off. We came out on the 4th floor about 11 AM and had lunch later at the Park Cafe near the Solarium on deck 9. Our suite was ...
