Worst Trans-ocean Cruise

|

We’ve done many transatlantic and transpacific cruises, most of which offered many activities and good entertainment for the many sea days. Unfortunately, this 18-day transpacific cruise was sorely lacking in both ...

Ship is beautiful but terrible itineraries and food

The other reviewers of this cruise have basically said it all. The itinerary change was super disappointing. We were so looking forward to going to the big island and seeing the volcano. Then RCI just axed the ...

Disappointing

Chose this cruise because of the itinerary but that didn’t work out so well. Bad planning on behalf of RCI resulted in multiple itinerary changes and just too much confusion for passengers and crew alike. We ...

Excuse after excuse

From the time ROyal Caribbean changed the itinerary conveniently 59 days before sailing, to the chaos created in baggage claim at disembarking, the most common words from ships staff was “We apologize”. The ...

Not the best RCL experience

I haven't been on a Royal Caribbean cruise for a while (5 years) and was disappointed with this service. I wanted to "fly" and was super excited to go on the iFLY attraction - which was why we chose this ship. ...

Worst cabin ever

Worst cabin ever: small, shoddy, very very noisy, hot water not always available. Nice ship overall, good food in the main dining room and also the buffet, but nothing could make up for the cabin we were ...

Good shows and cruise director did his best

Boarded the ship in Honolulu. Ease of check-in very good. Activities were lacking and mostly centered around sales pitches, such as a Good Feet presentation. There were 13 at sea days with very little to do. We ...

Tired ship

Ship is looking very tired. Buffet food was just ok. Pillows must be 100 years old and hard as rocks. We had a balcony room which was very small. The shower was the smallest shower I have ever seen in my life ...

Worst Cruise I have ever been on!

Six of us sailed on this cruise from Hawaii to Sydney and from embarkation to disembarkation the whole trip was appalling. The people at the check in didn't seem to know what they were doing and gave us all the ...

Not what we expected from Royal Caribbean

Reflecting on this cruise, I must say that my family and I are never sailing on the Radience and are skeptical on even sailing with Royal Caribbean again. We are Platinum members of the Crown and Anchor Society, and ...

Old ship with limited facilities

From the moment we boarded we knew this would be an experience like no other, and talking to other passengers everyone felt exactly the same. We had a junior suite with none of the extras as discussed on the ...

RCL falls down and so did I

We booked this cruise while we were sailing on Empress of the Seas to Cuba. We have sailed with this line several times before, with Celebrity and RCL ships. In every instance except for this one, the cruises have ...
