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. ...

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 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 ...

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 is my family’s 3rd cruise with RC. We have done Oasis, Anthem and now Symphony. First THE GOOD. as usual, the dining room staff are terrific in the MDR as well as the Wydjammer. My wife has Celiac and they have treated her with so much kindness and consideration to make sure she has adequate food choices. Our waiter Marlon at table 301, allows her to pick her meals the night before so they ...

I booked this cruise last year in Feb 2019 while on the Harmony of the Seas. I also got to have 32 Family & Friends join us. I booked this cruise specifically as it was a newer ship and sister of the HOS (which my husband and I enjoyed tremendously). I booked 13 Boardwalk Balconies primarily for the extra perks that were being offered at the time for this cabin. Embarkation: traffic was a mess ...

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. ...

We travelled on the Symphony of the seas Feb.15-22,2020 It is a beautiful ship but not much you get for free except your room and some food. Every fine dining is extra dollars , every drink ( pop and alcohol) is extra and any fitness class you want to take is also money,money,money. Would be nice if they at least let all the guests have free wifi so you could message family on the ship. ...

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. ...

We travel with an adult cruise group. We have an excellent Travel Agent who sets us up on the newest and best ships of Royal Caribbean. We were on the Symphony last year for Super Bowl. This year we were a little skeptical because it was winter break for school age kids. We thought it was going to be wall to wall people. The Symphony can handle crowds!!!! We had absolutely no problems with ...
