Standards dropping

Review for Explorer of the Seas to Norwegian Fjords

This was our 7th Royal Caribbean cruise, and we chose this Russia and Scandinavia sailing because of both the cruise line and the itinerary. It was also our second sailing on Explorer of the Seas, so we have had prior experience with RCCL. Our overall impression (which we seemed to share with many fellow guests) was that standards had been allowed to drop by RCCL. Meals in the Sapphire ...

The Norwegian Fjords Cruise was beautiful.

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The food in the Main Dining Room could be improved. I ordered Prawns and was given a shrimp dish and the shrimp still had the shell on. The entertainment was great, so was the Ice Show. I don't agree with comments made that cruisers we're not happy with the entertainment. The Barricade Boys were off the chart awesome. We certainly enjoyed ...

A timely adventure and the cold wet weather didn't deter most of the passengers

always wanted to see the Norwegian coastline and this cruise did not disappoint. From the snow covered mountains to the hustle and bustle of Bergen - and RCI did a good job organising everything. we didn't have a drink package on this trip due to all the shore time and this worked well. Furthermore, the embarkation and back to back arrangements went well (nearly everything) the food was ...

After some amazing cruises with TUI and Royal Caribbean, we chose to do the Norwegian Fjords primarily for the scenery. Sad to say Gerainger aside we didn’t see too much of the Fjords and spent a lot of time on choppy sea. Trips further into the Fjords were available but at a price. The ship wasn’t clean at all. Many windows were filthy, and some of the public areas were extremely dusty. We ate ...

This is one of my favorite parts of the world and traveling into the fjords was a treat. The bright days and white nights near the summer solstice is a great time to see the scenery. RCL has done this for a long time and with a lot of ships. Most things they have right, but some improvement is still possible. One example is the sail in to Geiranger, our first stop. The ride in is simply ...

We booked this cruise after seeing advertisements on board our last cruise which shown the ship sailing through all these fjords which looked fantastic. Highlight of the whole cruise was the port of Geranger which was fantastic to sail through to and really nice scenery once there. Regarding the ship, having cruised on this ship many times we thought the recent refurbishments were catering ...

First time on Indi -We chose the cruise for Norway Fjords Itinerary and were expecting a cold experience which we got ! however no struggle to get a sun bed ! ,the City ports were grey and disappointing so make sure you organise your excursions before you go or you will just wander around towns drinking coffee in Starbucks . On a positive note I found all crew very helpful and friendly and I ...

For my wife and I this was our very first cruise. We went to the Norwegian Fjords aboard Independence of the Seas. We booked this cruise as we were told that it was a great trip and the Independence had, according to the Royal Caribbean brochure "been given a makeover from stern to bow". This is not true, parts of the ship may have been changed, BUT our room certainly had not seen any makeover. I ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We sailed onboard the ship for our 1st ever cruise on the Norway itinerary. We are in our early forties and always wanted to see the Fjords. Upon arrival at Southampton, the whole embarking process was flawless - having travelled by air very frequently over the years, we found the whole process easy, pleasant and was on the ship within 30 minutes of getting out of our car next to the ...

First Time Cruiser

My wife and I chose this cruise as our honeymoon. She has sailed with Royal Caribbean before, but I never had. This was my first experience cruising and overall we both had a great time. Specifically we wanted to go to Norway, somewhere neither of us had visited before, and we both felt seeing five locations in Norway, from the sea, and cruising through some of the longest and most beautiful ...
