I enjoy sailing from all 4 of the major ports in Florida and Tampa is no exception. However I would not recommend parking at 717L57 Channel side Dr Lot Port of Tampa Cruise Parking. There is no one there, you park yourself, it's close to the Cruise terminals, you can walk to them and the price is very low however when we returned to our car we had parking tickets on the windshield and a warning ...

Let me start by saying that I am a pretty laid back guy. Out of the dozens of cruises we’ve been on, I’ve been to guest services over an issue maybe twice. We were traveling with a group of 8. My in laws and their dad were in one room. Several weeks before the cruise we called to verify it was one twin bed and one king bed in the room for them, as he is 80 and cannot get on a bunk bed. They ...

Our goal was to get our whole family together and give our grandchildren (age 5-11) their first cruise. The ship, the friendly staff, the outstanding waiters all worked well. The kids were happy swimming; we did not use the kids programs at all. They enjoyed the two shows we saw and everyone had a good time. Cabins were very clean as was the ship in general. The significant downside to the cruise ...

Other than the food and the Service in the Main Dining Room, I give this ship a solid 2. At best. And I'm being generous ,since the Staff is friendly. The entertainment is essentially non existent. The shows were poor, the movie theatre didn't work and the few movies they showed by the pool were older than I am. The only thing these people seemed to be concerned with was selling you stuff. That ...

Balcony room nice. Shower so small ,but made it work. Ship staff were awesome . Lack of fresh vegetables on menu was sad. When offered such as coleslaw or cucumber salad in main dining a tablespoon was served and usually hot and wilted and flavorless. Desserts were very sad . Whipped topping is not Mousse . Overall ship well maintained ,Captain praised staff and and rightly so. Good ...

This cruise was in no way worth the cost! The food was at best average, including at Chops Grill & Giovani’s, the entertainment was completely lame, the nightclub was not in use for most of the trip, except for a couple of lame late night brief events. Given that there is only one stop on the trip and most of the time spent is onboard and at sea these factors were major factors in our ...

We decided to do a quick holiday cruise after several years of not being able to. We found a good deal on the cruise itself with prepaid gratuities and some onboard credit as well. Captain Marek was still onboard for our sailing although I believe he was leaving after our cruise. He is definitely one of the nicest and most enjoyable Captains in the Royal Caribbean fleet. Although I saw reviews ...

We chose this short cruise because we really enjoy this size of ship. We sailed on Radiance when she was brand new, and again some years ago. Despite the ships age, it is very well maintained and kept up so well. We were impressed at how good it looked both inside and out. The attention to cleaning was evident everywhere. The staff was so friendly and helpful at every turn. We chose an outside ...

Enjoyed this weekend getaway from Tampa. Our room was very nice BUT was noisy being below the windjammer buffet. The entire crew from the captain to the room attendant were superior. Friendly, and kind. The food was of very good quality in the windjammer they had, Caribbean night, Mexican night, and Italian night themes and the experience fun. Only went to one show and it was good but not great. ...
