When purchasing the Ultra bev. package, they add other cost such as, the drink in the pineapple. There was an additional charge of $4 for that. The last morning of the cruise, the dining room did not have mimosas. The dining room did not have all wines available to me with my ultra package. The food was sub-par and very, very small portions except for the night that we had lamb. The pool area ...

I have waited some time to write this review so I could be fair in my assessment, in comparison to other cruises we have taken. In all fairness, this cruise was mistakenly booked during one of the Spring Break weeks, so that is not RC fault. The GOOD Waiters and cabin staff were outstanding. We wanted for nothing in our cabin. And our dinner wait staff were courteous and always ...

Age 30s

I consider myself an experienced cruiser – not an aficionado by any means, but I’ve been on 6 or 7 over the years. Obviously I am a fan. Actually, about half of those have been on Royal Caribbean, with the last one about 4 years ago giving me a pretty great experience (the other lines were Carnival and Celebrity if you are curious). However, this most recent experience was enough to make me say ...

An offer came in our email and the price was hard to beat, so we called RCI to book the March 7th cruise on Jewel of the seas. We decided to upgrade to a superior balcony, cabin 9254 and specifically asked if it was obstructed in any way and was told it was NOT... well they LIED!!!!! it is obstructed on not 1 or 2 but all 4 sides ( including up and down) so our views of the ocean were extremely ...

My wife, two sons (8 and 10) and I sailed the Mariner of the week of August 15th. I purposely waited several weeks to write this review to see what really stood out and what didn't. I have a feeling if I'd written a day or two after, it may have been different. This was my sixth cruise, first on RCCL- This is the third for my boys and they are hooked, so it looks like we'll be cruising annually. ...

This was my first cruise and I was excited about my trip to the Mexican Riviera. Many of my friends had told me of their cruise adventures on other cruise lines and I finally made up my mind to take one. My travel agent at AAA found this deal. She will be punished. Mind you, I had to pay 200% because I'm single, but that was my choice. I also flew first class from Seattle to LAX, again my choice, ...

This was my family's second cruise, the first with RCI. We were so disappointed with the vacation we had planned for a year. I don't even know where to start....... Okay, the food. Nothing great-average, but who wants average on vacation. The waiter and his assistant were the only things above average on this boat. The head waiter was a little bothersome and I'm not really sure what his job was. ...

First Time Cruiser

Both my husband and I have travelled all over the world and do not consider ourselves tourists. We did not enjoy the cruise on Vision of the Seas for many reasons: 1. 4 hours in priority check-in.   2. Slivers of glass in our cabin - my husband received a gash from a large piece of glass. 3. We were told to check out a room with a balcony to appease us, and the room was occupied. 4. I asked for ...

Our initial impression of the ship was one of excitement--everything looked really nice. Embankment was a breeze and took only a few minutes. Our luggage was brought to our room within a couple hours of boarding the ship. Once on the ship, the excitement soon faded. The public rooms were smelly. We used them only when it was absolutely necessary. We rarely saw the ship being cleaned. The final ...
