This was a surprise for 3 of my friends onboard the Symphony of the Seas. First time cruising for one friend, 2 for another, 6th for another and 30+ for me. We LOVED the shows. Especially Hiro, the 2 skating shows and Hairspray. The entertainment is number one on any cruise line I have been on. So much to see and do. 2 of us actually tried the flow rider. We went to St Maarten ( shopped) and ...

I have sailed multiple time with Royal. First Cruise since Covid. Concerned to say the least. RCCL, again showed why they are on top of their game. Safety, safety and safety were number one. They were always the "clean cruise line" with hand washing and gel stations, but they upped their game. They had extra personnel handling common use areas, drink machines, ice cream machines, buffets etc. ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary (Cozumel, Honduras, Costa Maya and Coco Cay). We had no idea what a beautiful ship we would be on. We did the ROyal up, with a minimum bid and "won" a suite. It was incredible. Amazing bathroom and balcony. The "living room" was tiny adn there were only two of us so we really didnt use it. The Lavazza coffee machine was amazing. (like amazing!) The ...

I love the big ships and wanted to get away from covid. Everyone was vaccinated and covid tested before boarding. Embarkment was smooth and there were 3 checkpoints for covid test, vaccination card and ID> This was my 44th cruise and the best ever. Food was the best we ever had and service was superior. Crew was excited to see us and everyone was cleaning. ALL public areas were sprayed ...

We had a ridiculously good time on this boat. Due to either RC’s own restrictions on capacity or a mere lack of customers, the boat was only about a fifth to a quarter full, with (I was told) about 1,400 passengers aboard a ship with a capacity for 6,600. The result was no lines for water slides, largely empty restaurants, and free loungers everywhere, even though most of them had been removed ...

This was a birthday present for our 14 year old granddaughter. Supposed to have been July of 2020. Due to COVID, was postponed 5 times on 5 different ships. Finally sailed on Symphony of the Seas 8/21/21. Overall, a very good experience. COVID protocols on board were excellent. Many new safety and health aspects were installed such as touchless door opening, so many hand washing ...

After having sailed on Princess, Carnival and the past several times on Disney, we decided to try Royal Caribbean. We decided to try out the Symphony because 1/ it has very high ratings among RC's fleet, 2/ we wanted to see what the world's biggest ship had to offer, and 3/ they ship stopped at islands we hadn't been to before - including RC's own CoCo Cay. We booked an outside balcony cabin on ...

Every time we have cruised on oasis, allure, and now symphony, we are amazed at the quality and excellence of the shows provided! Enjoyed dinner in the coastal kitchen from jr suite catagory, but very offended and disappointed that rccl has decided to stick diamond plus cruisers in a zero view basement room!!!!! terrible reward for being loyal to royal! Also hate it when the ship has no ...

The ship was not our choice, we were in a group and the organizer always uses Royal,. Embarkation was fast and easy aside from sitting in the terminal waiting to board. Self -assist off the ship was quick and easy, 15 minutes or less from the time we started till we were outside. The ship was too large for our taste, our cabin was 7600, middle/middle so everything was a long walk. ...

I was with a tour group of about 300 people. LGBT “bears” (large and hairy men) from a tour operator named “Arno”. This was my second cruise. The first one was at Carnival Pride, with a similar but smaller group called “Daddy Cruise”. The ship was amazing and huge. Very clean and they had sanitization stations everywhere. Embarkation was quick and simple at the home port and every other one. ...
