Not really Impressed

I choose this cruise for my daughter's birthday and because we've never been to Cozumel. The ship is beautiful and that's probably the only positive thing to say. If you're looking for a party cruise this is most ...

A little background first, then a bit long, but ultimately fair review. I am a 61 year old widower with a decent amount of cruise experience.This was my 2nd with RCCL (although the 1st one was some 25+ years ago) to ...

Failed on embarkation and disembarkation

Iceland is a very popular destination so we wanted to check it out. Done it and not impressed. If you had seen Niagara falls then the waterfalls in Iceland has nothing to brag about. The geysers are puny compared to ...

We saw so much in 13 days. Whirlwind pace..amazing ports of call.

Staff great with exception of crown and anchor director who seemed to cater to a select few. Very evident that ship is in desperate need of updating. Had a balcony yet cabin was smaller than a postage stamp..not ...

Interesting ports of call!

The first reason why we did this cruise is the ports of call and second this is our 6th time cruising with RCC. The ship could really use some major window washing. It was hard to see the views through the window ...

Great itinerary but other RCI ships have better service

This ten day cruise went to St. Martin, Tortola, Dominica, Antigua and St. Kitts. We did locally purchased shore excursions, mostly from the taxi vans that wait outside the port gates. They were much cheaper than ...

What has happened to the food and theatre entertainment?

We chose this cruise because of friends that were also booked. If not for these friends and new ones we met it would be hard to find many positive comments other than the crew members. The flight to Boston was a ...

Staff was excellent, ship wasn't

Well...we have only started cruising for years ago. During that time we stayed loyal to Royal but I must say that the quality of the Serenade of the Seas was a bit...disappointing. It's an older ship and in need of ...

Not the ship if you've been on other cruises :(

The dates and ports worked for us. The weather was great, the ship, not so good. This was my 7th cruise and the amenities were the worst. To give you an idea of how they think about food.....they listed the main ...

Overall nice time

The room we had was beautiful and clean. Our room attendant was excellent. But the bar service was not good, the casino had old machines and didn’t pay, no good headline shows. Food was excellent in Giovanni’s. ...
