A review from the perspective of a disabled cruiser.

I have been on 4 other cruises with all but one being on RCCL. I normally don't do reviews for my trips that due to all the negativity about the ship I thought it be necessary to give what I feel is a fair and ...

Poor to average

Being a curious cruiser I wanted to get to know the ship. It was just too crowded, everywhere. Just too many people even for a ship of this size. You had to qeue up most everywhere. Except for the paid ...

Avoid buying wine and beer package.

The chose this particular cruise because of the quality of the ship and the itinerary. We were not disappointed with that. I cruised on Oasis two years and thought I knew exactly what to expect from the ship. ...

Nice ship, but too crowded

Cruised with my husband and our 2 adult daughters. We picked this cruise based on the ports, because we've never been to Europe, so it seemed like a great way to get a taste of a few cities. We enjoyed all of the ...
