RCI has lost its luster, and with it our business

We originally had our first RCI cruise on this ship back in 2020 (before covid) and we’re so excited to return for another voyage (different ports). I am so sad to say that RCI /Harmony have just gone downhill. Especially on our last night, we just had bad experiences that left us never wanting to come back. Positives: first, the ship itself is gorgeous, and the ports were great. We enjoyed ...

Least favorite Royal Caribbean cruise ship we've sailed on!

My husband and I who are in our early 60's booked this cruise ship as we prefer a 8-night cruise over a 7-night, along with the fact that we had never sailed on this RC ship before and it had a previous port favorite - St. Thomas and a new one - Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. We've sailed on other RC crusie ships such as Jewel of the Seas, Radiance of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas, Oasis, ...

This was a 6 nt cruise that stopped at Nassau, Falmouth, Jamaica and Labadee. I went with a neighbor and we were in cabin 7582, ocean-view balcony. First the POSITIVES. The cabin had plenty of storage space - in fact, we had a number of drawers we never even used. The balcony was spacious enough with 2 chairs and foot rests and a small table. Our room steward, Iko, was great, always had a ...

It was a gift from my daughter and son in law. My wife and I were looking forward to dressing up for formal nights. The first night my family wasn’t impressed at all with the Silk main dinning rooms food or atmosphere. It was very cramped at dinner and disorganized.We were almost done with dinner before we could get a refill on our drinks. It wasn’t what it used to be like on my last cruise. The ...

First of all I'd like too mention the Staybridge Suites in Fort Lauderdale where we stayed the night before. Nice hotel with complimentary transportation too the cruise port which I thought was a huge perk. This was our fourth cruise and embarkation was the fastest we have ever experienced. Popular opinion is too get on the ship as early as possible. In my opinion I am going too wait till later ...

All alone on a very crowded ship

The last few years, my vacations have consisted of going to All-Inclusive Resorts instead of cruising. It had been over 15 years since I've been on a cruise. As I had some vacation days I needed to use before the end of the year (Use them or lose them scenario) I decided to mix things up and do another cruise this time instead of going to a resort. Deciding on doing a cruise instead of going to ...

HARMONY OF THE SEAS - GOOD, NOT GREAT! Our trip began in Tallahassee on October 29th as we drove to Orlando for a 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise. We stopped in Gainesville and enjoyed a great breakfast at the Metro Dinner on Archer Road. We stayed at the Hampton Inn ($170/night) in Orlando near the airport (a 45-minute drive to the port). On Sunday, October 30th, we left the hotel at 9:00 am ...

I chose this cruise because my close friend wanted to sail on an Oasis class ship. I have sailed on other Oasis class ships prior to this one. The ship is full of things to do and see. However, it can be very crowded at the "My Time" dinner hours. We've waited on long lines to enter the dining room for dinner. The dining room supervisors try to get everyone into the dining rooms from the ...

We've enjoyed RC before multiple times but this time in every single bar there are elementary age children bellied up to all the bars at all hours. They don't enforce adults only even in the adults only solarium. No place to get away from bratty children. Even the late night shows were toned down and were full of kids. The dining was standard okay. The solarium is good for breakfast and lunch ...

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 ...
