First time in a Royal Caribbean ship I was impressed never a dull moment always something to do or not if that was your choosing. The staff where always very accommodating and generally where having as much fun as the passengers. Embarkation and disembarkation was very smooth especially being able to board earlier than expected having flown in overnight. The entertainment on board was fairly good, excellent variety available. The small bar groups and individuals where brilliant but the shows in the main theatre where a little disappointing. Ice skating impressive! The adult pool area should though be allocated to people over the age of 21, as I did make it very difficult to enjoy your time there as there was a lot of young adults between 16 - 21 taking all the seating whilst being in the pool the whole of the day. In general the overall experience was pretty good and would definitely cruise again with Royal Caribbean. Read Less

I travelled on this 9 night sailing on board Voyager of the Seas from/to Sydney, visiting Lifou, New Caledonia; Port Vila, Vanuatu; Mystery Island, Vanuatu & Noumea, New Caledonia, with a group of other singles. Overall I had a great time and made some great new friendships. This was my sixth cruise, and I do believe there is a huge amount to like about a cruise holiday. Unfortunately, it's often an expensive option for singles/solos as there is usually a significant single supplement. This was my first time on a Royal Caribbean ship, and while there were many great things, there were quite a few cons as well. Pros: * The ship is a really great size - not too small, and not too big. It was pretty clean. * The crew were almost universally friendly and efficient. There was the odd exception but that can happen on any cruise line or ship. * The food was very good and plentiful. The variety was good. * There were lots of activities on the sea days, and the activities staff were really good. * The pool area is very nice (although showing its age a little) * The complaint that I made in the mid-cruise survey about slow service in the Main Dining Room was responded to very well. It's the first time I have had a manager call me in my stateroom to discuss the matter with me. * The cabin I had (Large Oceanview) was very comfortable with a larger than normal wardrobe area. Cons: THE BIG ONE FOR ME: * Every other cruise line that has ships based in Australia for the Southern Hemisphere summer uses Australian dollars as the currency on board, while they are sailing out of Australia. Having USD as the currency on board RC ships is a pain for antipodean cruisers. * Also particularly disappointing was the fact that there was no liquid soap or shampoo provided. Only small bars of soap. This is disappointing and not up to the level of competitor cruise lines. * There weren't a few of the niceties, like a chocolate on the pillow. * The theatre entertainment was good, but not outstanding. I think I have seen better on Carnival's Australia-based ships, and on Princess. * It's difficult to avoid walking through the smokers area on the main pool deck, unless you restrict yourself to one side. * Check-in in Sydney at around 2.30pm was pretty slow with long queues. * There weren't enough tables at the busy times in the buffet. * I was surprised that the buffet was not open 24 hours. Instead the Cafe Promenade was the 24 hour option, with significantly less options. * You could only get individual slices of two varieties of pizza (cheese or pepperoni). Other ships that I have been on (including Carnival Australia's ships, which is Royal Caribbean's biggest competitor for out-of-Sydney cruises) have full pizzerias with more options and the ability to get a whole pizza. * I was disappointed by the towel animals compared to Carnival Australia. The 'animals' that I got on Carnival Australia were quite a lot better. * The colour scheme in the hallways is a bit of a shock at first. It's a pretty unpleasant pink. * The range of non-alcoholic cocktails was a bit limited. * The burger joint is not free, unlike Carnival Legend/Spirit. * For the money paid, the 'Mystery Dinner Theater' was disappointing. The food was patchy. * The prices for snacks, sunscreen, shampoo etc. in the retail shop were extortionate. The ports: Lifou (tender port) - This was my second time to this port, and I think I'm done here. The beach is pleasant, and they have a cultural performance several times during the day. There is an ok cafe. If you're not a beach person, you really do need to do a tour here, whether through the ship or from local operators (although the ship has more choices). The first time I visited this port I did the Luecila Beach & Drive tour and loved it. Luecila Beach is beautiful and great for swimming, as it's very sandy under foot. Port Vila (docked port) - This was a new port for me. I had a great day out with Atmosphere Tours. The Blue Lagoon is very nice, and I was pleasantly surprised that the turtle sanctuary wasn't as bad as I expected. This is also a fantastic port in which to get cheap duty free alcohol if you live in Australia. I feel like I've got more to explore here. The city wasn't quite as developed as I expected, but it's a nice enough place. Mystery Island (tender port) - Wow! If you're a beach person, this is paradise. We were there on a beautiful cloudless day, and the white sand beaches were amazing. Those who went snorkeling and paddle boarding had a ball. Nobody lives on the island - instead the locals from the nearby larger island sail across every time a cruise ship calls. A few tips for people not confident in the water - there is a glass bottom boat that you can book on the island that is cheaper than the one onboard the ship. Doing a tour across to the local village on the larger island is also a great activity, if you want to experience real life, with no electricity. One other important note - the food offerings on Mystery Island are very poor. You might want to go back to the ship for lunch and then come back to the island. Noumea (docked port) - Noumea is an interesting hodge podge. Most ships dock at the cargo port, and you have to board buses to the Cruise Terminal Building at the bottom of town. There are some nice islands in the harbour for swimming, and even swimming at the main Anse Vata beach is pleasant enough. (Although be aware that the bottom of the sea is not smooth.) The city is very French, and that can either appeal or detract. French people are not known for being particularly friendly to tourists. Getting the Tchou Tchou train or the competitor Lyvai Green Train are good options. Overall, I think Carnival Australia has the edge over Royal Caribbean for cruises out of Sydney. (I didn't expect this to be the case, but I've been on both, and that's my view). The exception is probably Ovation of the Seas which I haven't had a chance to sail on yet. Read Less

I felt like I was at the county fair for a week straight. Masses and masses of people everywhere. But on the other hand........ The shows were really good, and worth attending, although you have to make reservations to attend a show. Every show was packed without any empty seats, so don't expect to come late, and get a seat. I really enjoyed the diving show,. These divers are all national or Olympic Team divers, and the show was excellent, and not to be missed. If you have kids, this is the perfect cruise for them. Johnny Rockets, pizza, ice cream, characters in costume, Santa came, the Captain was funny and nice, the officers sang Christmas Carols, Main dining room food was not great, although the specialty restaurants were all delicious. We ate at the chef's Table one night, that was good. All in all if you have a family with kids, it's a good cruise. If you are an older single adult, I'd recommend a different line,especially if you are trying to relax and have quiet and luxury at the same time.- Celebrity Cruises would be my choice, but at least I tried the larger ship. Cabins were smaller than Celebrity Concierge, no overhead bin storage, and the TV had limited channels. Crown and Anchor club has a nice happy hour, but there were so many people in the Diamond lounge. We still all had a great time, the staff there was personable, polite, and very helpful with everything we could have asked for. Best to go at 4-4:30 if you want a seat. An appetizers every night. Now I can say, been there, done that! Read Less

For Thanksgiving, for my birthday, vacation with my Mom. Dining was a relaxing and very enjoyable experience in the Minstrel Dining Room. Our Franklyn and Oleksander were terrific and provided wonderful service, kindness and patience at dinner time for the end of our day. The food was delicious! On a 1-10 scale, I would give each of them an 11. The food in the Windjammer was very good and I loved the ease of dining there. Room service was good; the food good -- $8 per trip, too much. The music and entertainment were wonderful, especially the Villa Nella trio. ********************************* The afternoon before the cruise began, I happened to check my emails, and there was one from RC saying not to be at the port terminal to board before 2pm. Originally, as always, boarding is supposed to be at 12. And that is what my daughter had planned with her work for time off to drive us the hour to the port. So with that email, she had to change her work schedule to accommodate RC's last minute notification. Arriving at the terminal, no one was available to wheelchair my Mom onto the ship even though I had called RC a week and a half earlier to order that service. We spent 20 minutes with a private vendor to rent a walker and got onto the Brilliance at 3:25pm. Then we had to wait outside on the deck for 20 minutes to go through the mandatory muster drill. It was after 4 before we or anyone, could go into the ship. After quickly checking the room out, we went to the Windjammer to get a snack. They were closed. We were referred to Rita's Cantina, walked all the way there (Mom is 92 and uses a walker), got there, they said there were only drinks available, no food. By that time, we were really hungry, almost 5:00 and asked where we could get food. No one seemed to know anything ( really???? this is the first embarkation any of the crew has been involved in?) Finally, someone said to go to the Cafe by the Solarium, so got there at 5:00 and there was a very long line of hungry people!! By the time we got to order, we were told no more grilled sandwiches and they were closing!!! About that time a manager finally came around and after a few more minutes, the lights were turned back on in the grill area and platters of cold sandwiches were also brought out. So Embarkation was a disaster with many excuses and poor management on RC's part. Birthday decorations(not free)... in the room when we arrived, not till after 4:00 because of the delayed boarding. The wine and chocolate-covered strawberries were not there when we arrived. I did not know about them. When I found out from my daughter who ordered them, I called the ship operator... excuses... "would be delivered the next day". When we returned from dinner about 9:30 that night, full of dinner and dessert, there was a bucket with champagne and the strawberries. I don't like champagne - and my daughter knows that and ordered wine. We were way too full for the strawberries then. Next day IN THE MORNING, wine was delivered in a bucket of ice. Come to find out, my daughter had called to complain about the champagne and strawberries not being there when they were supposed to have been, when we first entered the room. I do not know about anyone else, but I certainly do not drink wine in the morning. All of this fiasco just serves to irritate the gift giver and the recipient, on top of the expensive cost of all those items. ********************************* The cabin steward whose name I will not give on this public forum smiled each time we saw him (not many). However, he never offered a bucket of ice to keep in the room for ice water, etc. I had to ask, and then remind. My Mom and/or I stayed in the room some as she was not up to par a couple of the first days. The steward barely stepped into the room when we were there and I had to ask for each "thing" to be done, empty the garbage (lots of kleenex :), another wash cloth (only 1 left a couple of the times), and so on. He would empty the room garbage and then not go into the bathroom to empty that garbage. If RC would just leave plastic trash bags, I would have done it myself. [ The room was very neat, I might add, as I had unpacked and put everything away the first morning, so there was no reason for him to not enter.] *********************************** The port at Roatan should be eliminated. Nothing there. Just shops at a pier with very over-priced souvenirs and 1 restaurant on the 2nd level which is inaccessible to someone unable to use the stairs. The bar/grill on the ground was nice, drinks were priced right. A skewer of shrimp, good but not worth the $18 ! Definitely get something else to eat. A number of people seemed to enjoy the zip line. But that was pretty much it. Key West, Cozumel and Grand Cayman.... I don't know, probably very nice. But I found quiet spots on the ship to enjoy some much deserved relaxation and reading and enjoying the beautiful weather. Mom rested, read, played her games, and watched a little TV. Oh and we shopped on the RC :) Some nice things and good bargains. And we enjoyed the staff and drinks in the Casino Bar on 6. My mother loved talking with Michael about the Philippines when she had lived there many years ago and he was very kind to my Mom and seemed to enjoy talking with her as well. Another bartender Oleksander (sp?) was very pleasant as well and he and Michael made the very best frozen peach daiquiris! What a tasty way to cool off in the afternoon and then listen to the classical music of the Villa Nella trio. And somehow I was very lucky and won at one of the slot machines! (one time only :) This is my 4th cruise with Royal Caribbean. None of the other cruises had any issues, and this particular vessel is the same as the Transatlantic almost 2 years ago, so I felt comfortable going on this ship again and bringing my Mom this time. I had never intended to use another line, but after the experiences this last week, I will definitely try another line. TIPS: Do not prepay gratuities. I would have well-tipped those that did the good jobs and less or not at all to the one who did as little as possible. Do not buy the alcohol package unless you really drink a lot. I mostly did it for the convenience of not having to sign each time I ordered a drink. But for around $760 for 2 people.... totally not worth it. My suggestion would be for the cruise lines to come up with a smaller package for those of us who may want 1-2 drinks a day, if that much. Read Less

This was my first trip with Royal Caribbean, after more than a dozen cruises with Cunard, Carnival and NCL. I didn't have unreal high expectations however, after this experience, I wonder why is it that RCI is considered a higher standard in cruising? My first negative impression came from staff members, whom I suspect are underpaid and in less than decent conditions on the boat (they can't all be moody!). Most of them have questionable attitudes, as if they cannot be bothered. I am not one of those annoying, obnoxious, demanding customers, actually I have compassion and respect for workers, especially since I worked with Cunard myself. Our deluxe balcony cabin lacked bathroom supplies (no tissues, shampoo, or even bags for garbage) and seemed outdated, there was mold in the shower and in the toilet, yucks. Beds were hard and there were no individual controls for lights, which were either blinding or left us in the dark. Internet service package...I might as well not have wasted my money! Was expecting a work contract and needed to have email available, but was unable to refresh, let alone do anything online. Entertainment was mediocre at best, however I didn't expect super talent aboard a boat. What surprised me the most was the very, very poor quality of the food. Windjammer was distracting due to the buffet nature and variety...but their main dining room, Saphire, omg, every dish looked and tasted like a $3 dollar microwave meal. Don't know if I would give RCI another shot, would have to read reviews. For now, as far as big cruise liners, I believe NCL is a much better choice. This was like Carnival, with less desperate feeders and a higher quality crowd, but overly stuffed the same. Did I mention we waited 3 hours for disembarkation? Read Less

More actives than the other ships but the lines where so long and they stayed book so I was able to do I Fly,bumper cars, and the pool was to crowded to enjoy or the lines where to long or the you could it was already full. The restaurant where outstanding my favor was Chic they made you feel like first class dinning every time. Guess services a lot where very nice but some where not understanding and at times rude and the lines where way to long. To spend $162 on pictures that did not look good was very disappointing.

I choose this cruise of 4 nights as an alternative to spending 4 nights in a hotel in Miami between two longer cruises on NCL. I remember this ship well when RCCL first brought into the fleet as a new build some 30 years or so ago. Even then, the ship had to go back to the builder to make everything actually work right. Cosmetically (furnishings and décor), it remains a small but attractive vessel, but the years away from RCCL while it sailed for the RCCL subsidiary Pullman Tours, were not kind to the vessel. The air ventilation system is horrible resulting in areas and cabins that near sweltering and others freezing. If you have chronic allergy or sinus or breathing issues, avoid this ship. I have severe chronic sinus issues and when there is mold or some other problem with an air system, my body reacts quickly. This temperature differential and air quality may not bother most passengers, But if it does, bring your meds, inhalers, cpaps or whatever you use to avoid a trip to the medical center which though provides decent service, is costly and not covered by most US insurance plans other than perhaps travel insurance where you may have to go through the pre-existing condition argument that many travel insurance plans start giving you a hard time about. There were work crews always around looking at fire doors and pipes and wiring on the decks. Air systems issues are always a problem on older ships just like in old buildings, cars or whatever. The poor staff in the dining room and Lido buffet were just close to running to keep up with service demands and replenishment of edibles. Drink service in casino was slow. Just not enough staff onboard to maintain service. If you are a frequent and observing cruiser, this problem has become an issue with most main stream lines. My room steward William was an old hand at his job, and was very good. Having been to Key West and Nassau more times than I can remember, I did not purchase any excursions or much of anything else on board. The shops were as shops are on cruise ships, mainly pricey for what you get other than perhaps the t-shirt specials and the buy 4 $10 items and get the 5th free which can at times yield up a nice little treasure or two. Liquor costs were ok but not great, and I saw no real fragrance specials. Save all that shopping for a longer cruise at better shopping ports than Nassau. Key West gives the Orlando theme parks a run for the t-shirt capital of Florida. Food quality was very uneven and often was better in the Lido than the MDR. I should have stayed in Miami or South Beach and enjoyed watching all the crazy people strut their stuff. Read Less

Let me start out by saying that this ship is beautiful- it is one of the most modern cruise ships I have even on. Which is why its a shame the cruise failed to impress. Embarkation: Fast and efficient in hong kong. We were on the ship less then 30 mins after cruise terminal arrival. Dining: Not very good. This ship has now started charging $7.95 for room service (expect breakfast) I will be traveling on royal less because of this. The windjammer buffet was a mess. Completely overcrowded and understaffed. It took me at least 20 mins every time I went there to get an omelet. For dinner in the evening the two restaurants on deck 4 were very nice but on the first day the 8:00PM dinner was delayed until at least 8:25. Imagine a crowd of people waiting to eat not my idea of a fun vacation. The food the other nights was ok but RCCL has stopped offering lobster on formal night. The food in the dining room was pretty good but nothing to write home about. Entertainment: Shows were very good! I enjoyed Pixels but make sure to book this once onboard as it fills up. Pixels is a special show that uses multiple screens in a smaller venue. All the regular shows you dont need to book. Onboard Experience: TERRIBLE. This is the worst part of this cruise and it happends because there were way too many people for the size of this ship. The elevators were ALWAYS crowded and I rarely used them due to this. LINES EVERYWHERE. From the buffet to the shore excursions desk. Be prepared to wait and do some more waiting. The service in the dinning areas sucked. They need to hire more staff for this amount of people. Ports: The star of this cruise. Hong Kong, Vietnam, Bangkok and Singapore were all amazing!!! It's a shame for me to have to write this review because once again this ship is breathtaking from the second you walk in. The staff did the best they can but this ship is overcrowded and severely understaffed. Read Less

Having only been on 1 cruise prior a short 3 day one, we chose this cruise purely for the ship. The location was then selected and as it had a number of stops to break up the trip and went for this one with stops in Vietnam and Thailand before arriving in Singapore. We also had not visited HK before so that was an added bonus to fly in a few days prior to look around. Despite the stops, we could have done with more days at sea as there was so much to do on the ship. The ocean was flat all the way and was perfect. The weather had a few overcast days but only rained once or twice. We expected for the size of the ship it would be overcrowded and embarkation and disembarkation at the Ports and pre/post cruise would be a nightmaree but it was a painless experience. Some of the prior reviews rated this negatively and I guess they have put more focus on this as the wait times were minimal and we got on and off the boat easily. For the number of people (around 4300 guests) it did not feel crowded at all, there was always plenty of space. We had an interior stateroom with a virtual balcony (9185) and it was excellent. We have stayed in a balcony room before so wasn't sure what to expect but I was more than happy with the room. Friends stayed in a balcony room and the size and layout was exactly the same except for the balcony. The virtual screen provided a good look at what was going on outside the ship but we hardly noticed as we were never in our room. Once we left in the morning we didn't return until night before getting ready for dinner or to go out. We did the most of the activities on board, Eye in the Sky, I-Fly (sky diving), roller staking, bumper cars, rock climbing, basketball, ping pong etc. There was a lot to keep you occupied. All of which was great fun. I travelled with a group of 10 (5 couples, no children). There were not many young kids on board that we saw, and same for teenagers. However, there were specific kid and teenage activities arranged and the sporting area (ping pong, roller skating, basketball, volleyball, bumper cars, xbox lounges, foozball etc.) as well as the arcade would be awesome for them, it was pretty impressive. My teenage son was a bit envious he didn't come! We saw the Love Legs show (may have the name wrong) which was excellent. Great singers and performers. Entertainment was generally high quality. The ship has a huge lounge called the 270 which has screens that cover all windows. One of the shows Pixels that you had to book for showcased the facility with moving screens, light show etc. The show was a bit out there but it was good to see the full capability of the facility which is pretty amazing. The food was excellent in most of the facilities. Fine Dining was a bit disappointing and the standard was ok, but not great. We had better meals in the Windjammer (buffet) and ate there on most occasions. I think this was consistent with most travellers as we tried fine dining again on day 4 or so and there was hardly anyone there and they were so grateful we went back. Again, meal was ok and we didn't return again. The buffet at Windjammer was very good quality, could not fault it. So much variety and suffice to say we ate a lot! We also pre-booked Jamie Oliver and Chops Steakhouse both of which were very good as well. The food was unlimited and we paid around $35-40 pp pre-booked and it was well worth it. Plenty of other places to eat but we did not try them all. Also did room service breakfast before tours in Port and this was also good. A few in our group smoked and there was a good area on the pool deck with nice lounges and you could open the windows. A few commented this was a lot better than other cruises where you can be stuck in a tiny, crappy area. We booked our own tours rather than go with the boats which was perfect for a group. We used a Company called "Shore Excursions" in both Vietnam and Thailand. It was much better as we did not have to wait for other people and could adjust the itinerary on the day. The itineraries and tour guides were great and would highly recommend this as well. As you can see by my novel - we loved our time on Ovation!!! Read Less

Wanted to try a larger ship as travelled many times on RCL. Well despite the negativity I have read, it was not applicable. Fabulous ship, excellent memories made with lots of new and exciting friendships which I am certain will blossom beyond this sailing. Embarkation – Quick speedy and efficient. Porters were waiting on the right side for bag drop off, on entry quick health form completed, allocated an RCL member to process and onboard we went. Smooth painless and done within 20 mins from start to finish. Onboard – Guest Services – As I was travelling with a minor their seapass card has to have a spend limit put on. Quick and easy, once in the line an RCL member helped fill out the relevant paperwork and we were free to start our holiday. Safety Drill –Instructions are on the back of you cabin door and your seaspass has you assigned station. Lots of RCL staff more than happy to assist you. Dining – Amazing! Before I embarked I was quick shocked at the reviews. I am so glad they were not relevant. Food in the MDR was outstanding; I went to Italian and was suitably impressed. Every night our servers/chefs/wait staff did something new to entertain the guests. As dining is a huge factor for my family it was lovely to see such drive and effort made to ensure we had a pleasant experience. Murder Mystery Dinner – If you haven’t done it try it. Was so much fun, the actors play a part you have a wonderful dinner and figure out who did it. Well worth the money. DreamWorks Breakfast – A must for little and big kids alike, was a great laugh. Just order eggs over easy sunny side up were a little too sunny. Cabin – Well I am delighted to say I had the pleasure of staying in Cabin 1854 a Family Panoramic View that is now classed as a suite. The views were spectacular and the position right at the front behind the pool bar and above solarium was excellent. Cabin was clean, neat tidy. Cabin steward was named Angel, well he was indeed that. He was fun, respectful and did his job to a very high standard. I couldn’t take him home unfortunately something about against the rules. Hairdryer provided and US electrical ports, so BYO adaptor. Ample cupboard space for hanging or putting away clothing. Facilities onboard – shops were varied, café promenade was fabulous for coffee and library was excellent. Children’s books are also available. Entertainment – OUT OF THIS WORLD. Great shows, Jamie the cruise director and his team were fabulous. They really enjoyed themselves and the acts showed passion and drive. The move it move it parade was a hit with all passengers young and old. Ice Shows x 2 both excellent those girls and boys were fabulous. Pig n Whistle – Well everyone has their favorite watering spot and this was mine. Carlo, musician was outstanding and I mean WOW had the place rocking to his vocals and guitar work. If you are looking for romance look no further, if you want to enjoy time that someone special, like I did, this is the place to be. Soft sounds and the perfect romantic venue. Many happy memories and many friendships made. Gym/Spa - Well I have been to some gyms in my time and given the amount of food consumed, I definitely needed to work some off. Equipment great, clean and in working order. Great views to get rid of those excess pounds. Theatres – Located decks 3 & 4 easy to access and wheelchair accessible seating provided. RCL meet n Greet – Host was fabulous however many members didn’t get their invite even though they registered. For this particular sailing there was no role call and a Facebook Page was created to chat about all things cruising and RCL. Cruise critic this is something that needs attention as emails were sent to amend but was not rectified. Summary – This ship is quite large however the staff onboard were all singing. I mean right down to the maintenance people. Management have done an excellent job, a happy crew makes for a happy cruisers. Read Less
