Good Cruise but Lost Luggage

Review for Ovation of the Seas to Alaska

Overall cruise was good. Embarkation was the smoothest that we have experienced; it took only a few minutes. Junior suite was spacious and cabin attendant was excellent. Dining was good. Had dinner in the main dining room most nights. Immediately after boarding, made reservations for the Coastal Kitchen for two nights; when we showed up somehow the reservation had been lost. We were ...

Food Unless you purchase a beverage plan, complimentary drink options are water or hot tea, and juices at a few places. Unless you're going to have 2-3 cocktails (around $10-17 each) a day, the beverage plan is a waste of money. The soda only (no booze) plan is around $9/day. Instead, bring a dozen sodas on board with you. When you're in Ketchikan, go to the drugstore (very close to the dock) ...

We are veteran cruisers but have previously been on only one other RCCL ship, the Oasis of the Seas. Most often we sail Celebrity.Because of having earned Elite+ status on Captain's Club we were fortunate to utilize Diamond level Crown & Anchor perks on this voyage. Like so many others we had cruises cancelled due to COVID and we were very eager to sail again.My husband had never visited Alaska ...

Booked 3 weeks prior to sailing it was a screaming deal! Got double points, and were on our way to getting Diamond status. We are From Oregon so easy drive up I5 to Seattle.The food is good. But I s it great? ( Not really) However you can find find good food it’s just maybe not quite as good as some of the other ships I have been on for sure but I was very happy with the food. Don’t listen to the ...

Just got off a last minute Alaska cruise on Ovation of the Seas. It was fantastic. Only 1342 guests on a ship that holds up to 4800.  We got lucky with incredibly good weather for this time of year in Alaska.  It was rainy and windy the weeks before and a big storm is coming in this next weekend. The boat felt perfect for the number of guests.  There were 1300 crew, only 200 less than when the ...

If you have read any of my previous reviews , you know my wife and I are senior citizens, budget cruisers and cruise to be on the ship and relax. We typically do not care what ports the ship goes to since we seldom get off, don't usually do excursions. We like to eat, relax, read and go to shows. That being the case, the priorities for us in reviewing a ship are food, general ambience and decor of ...

I traveled with over 70 people through Card Player Cruises. Such a perfect group and wonderful fun trip. Food was improved over pre-covid cruises on RCCL, especially in the buffet where they now serve you so no more hands on everything. Cabin was wonderful. Service was friendly but professional. Fast boarding and departure. I wanted to dispute something in another review, that one ...

This was only my 2nd RCCL cruise. I chose this ship because of the itinerary. This was the 3rd cruise out of Alaska for this ship since shutdown. Fortunately we had a 12 Noon embarkation time. They had lines for check-in time so don't arrive early or you will wait. Our line started moving at around 12:05 p.m. and we were onboard by 1 p.m. (we did everything beforehand - check-in, photos, ...

I cannot believe that Royal C requires an excursion to leave the ship!

Everything was great in terms of service, food, fun on the ship. However, Royal C requires a purchased excursion in order to get off the ship. This is infringing my freedom to tour without joining a group, and it has nothing to do with covid regulation. Service and Food was great just like other cruises, but the fact that we were not allowed to dock when the ship docks REALLY IS a false ...
