The right size ship, but lacks the WOW! it used to have

|

We arrived in Honolulu the evening before our cruise and had a hotel a short distance from the cruise port. From the time we check our bags with a porter, through security and check-in, we were on the ship in less ...

5 days at sea is boring!!!

Loved the Hawaii portion of the itinerary. After a great time in the islands, we headed out for 5 days of cold, cloudy weather. Not the fault of RC, but just the same, plans for swimming and sunning were dead on ...

Penny pinching by RCI and the Hawaii port authority undermined the good crew

This was our first repositioning cruise. Wenenjoy sea days, don't get sea sick and looked forward to the 5 day voyage from Maui to Vancouver. However, the strong head winds and cool temperatures meant the wind ...

Below RCI Standards

In general, we found the ship is showing its age. Chairs in the Colony Club show a great deal of wear and tear, and there was a musty smell in the corridor, on deck 8 and on many others. The service and food was ...

We fancied this trip for a very long tip because of the routing. Our cabin 9056 was spacious and nice - not too clean but we've enjoyed it very much. The water temperaturee was an issue with 43° this has been ...

Loyal RCL cruisers, but very disappointed.

Booked Suite 1038 for 11 day cruise. Had nothing but trouble with the toilet; backed up 18 times. Staff continued to apologize, but never fixed the issue. Furniture was worn. Ship needs a major update. ...

Great if you're retired, not so good for families

We were SO looking forward to this cruise, but sadly it just wasn't up to par for us. We are a family with two teens and our previous experiences with RCI have been fantastic, so we felt confident choosing this ...

10th RCC Cruise

Right from the start you get a feeling how things are going to turn out. Call it quirky, I don't know, but it happens. We are on Diamond level & get the odd perk or two, but just getting on the ship was a little ...

Rhapsody - May it RIP

I'm sure the ship may have been a Rhapsody at some point but it needs to be retired. Hawaii and Canada were lovely and was the only saving grace. I'm not sure why RCL has invested in trying to put a band-aid on this ...

Disappointed In Radiance Of The Seas

We did enjoy our cruise, it is hard not too, and plan to sail with RCCL at least one more time as I believe this can not be the new standard. However the level of service and general atmosphere was just not what we ...
