"My knees crushed against seat in front After I rode the Abyss slide, there were no photos or video on the TV screens Windjammer buffet opened at 7 am when the excursions started gathering at 8 am The croissants were rolls shaped to look like croissants Buffet food average, no one serving beverages until last day No bottled water in room We are 62 and 61 so the ship is better suited to families.0) Cococay was a great private island Gym spacious, long running track Great activities: zip line, abyss slide, rock climbing guitarist playing in Central Park was very relaxing Liked food at El Loco Fresh, Solarium Bistro, Hooked seafood Stairs which sound like a piano keyboard was fun Saw the sloths on the Easy Roatan excursion Shower stall well designed with door and curb keeping water in the shower Cons Royal Caribbean website does not work...."Read More

Misleading and disappointing!

Review for Symphony of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

I am not the kind to write reviews, but after my experience on this ship, I feel it necessary to inform other consumers. We booked this trip and several months later, Royal offered me a marketing proposal to upgrade my room to a VIP suite for TWO people, and I was staying in the room alone. I did not challenge this because these were the rules, so I paid for the double fee required for the ...

Background- this was about our 15th cruise on Royal and we are diamond level. It was a husband, wife and 21 yr old daughter cruise. There were lots of disappointments as well as some good times. We are not snobs but we paid a lot of money for this cruise and it wasn't all what we remembered cruising to be like. Overall, any cruise is a good cruise and you have to roll with the punches which we ...

First we love Royal and we have sailed many other cruise lines. To level set, we booked a two-story crown loft suite on the 17th floor, it comes with a double story family room and the bedroom is upstairs. The best part of the room is two full bathrooms, one downstairs with a standing shower and the second upstairs with a bathtub shower combo. Because the room is tall but not wide, the deck is ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was our first cruise. We chose Royal Caribbean Symphony of the seas because we heard that it was at the top of the list for family oriented vacations and it definitely exceeded all expectations in my opinion. The beauty of the ship itself is enough to leave you standing in awe, but when we were welcomed by every...I mean every staff member with the warmest welcome and hospitality that is ...

We chose this cruise because it was supposed to be this amazing experience but we did have a lot of trouble with a big group in my opinion royal Caribbean does not handle big groups very well Especially if it’s a mixed group of handicapped, elderly, and minors from 6 months-17. We had a group of 11 and we were celebrating five generations. This was a very expensive trip for me I worked Tons of ...

Having cruised on Oasis, Allure and Harmony I was eager to finally get to sail onboard Symphony of the Seas. I had purchased the at home test kits as a back up, just in case our two tests at Walgreens and CVS didn't come back in time. I am so happy I did because neither came back until one and two days after we had sailed. I would not recommend CVS or Walgreen's right now, we were even told at ...

Symphony of the Seas~Western Caribbean January 29-February 5, 2022 Hubby had seen a video of this ship on YouTube in 2020 and was hooked. The whole purpose of this cruise was to experience Symphony. The last RCI ship we were on was Vision OTS for a Baltic cruise. We had never been on an Oasis class vessel. This was our 16th cruise and we had been to all the islands except Honduras ...

Boarding tips I wish I would've known

Let me start by saying the entire cruise was great- even with having to wear face masks inside. I felt like they were trying their best to keep everything clean. They were even washing the walls regularly! But the initial boarding at the pier... It was absolute chaos. If you have The Key then this won't apply to you- you have your own entrance clearly marked. By some fluke I managed to ...

Royal Caribbean Delivers on safe fun cruise

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. ...
