Fantastic first time cruise ever and immediately a Transatlantic crossing

We had a wonderful time on board of The Brilliance of the Seas, crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Tampa to Amsterdam. Our cabin was really nice and more spacious as we would have thought and was kept tiptop by the ...

Smooth Transatlantic

This transatlantic cruise consisted of port calls at Cartagena, Malaga, Funchal and St. Kitts. There were nine sea days including five in a row while doing the actual crossing. This was a nice mix of sea days and ...

We use transatlantic cruising as we spend half off the year in Florida and the other half in the UK. The check-in at Southampton went very smoothly so onwards up to the schooner bar. We met our friends who we ...

Transatlantic Cruise

After several cruises with Royal Caribbean and some prior with Fred Olsen, we have been disappointed and probably will not go with RC again. Service is poor and standards are dropping, see details below: 1 Chops ...

Old ship and cheap cruise line

Royal Caribbean was very cheap this time around and I will never sail with them again. I felt I had to pay for everything if I wanted it. They didn’t heat the pool everyday, some days it was great and some the ...

CHARMING OLDER VESSEL THAT IS STILL READY FOR PRIME-TIME

We'd been to Rome in 2006 and therefore stayed in Civitavecchia for 2 days beforehand (Hotel San Giorgio). If you want food groceries, snacks, and wine you will want to walk 6-7 blocks up the hill on the main drag ...

Enjoyable trans-Atlantic

This is a gorgeous ship. We like the multi-story centrum, all the marble accents on the floors, nice carpets and art work all around. Weather was not the greatest, lots of cloud and dull days, a little bit of rock ...

Transatlantic Crossing with lots of sea days

Barcelona departure on a 14 day crossing to Tampa. Excellent food, lots of daytime events, good evening entertainment. The ship is large enough to have many things to do but not so big as to be lost in a flood of ...

We cruise with RCCL a lot. This cruise was not quite up to the usual standard. The ship had quite a few minor cosmetic issues as well as some mechanical ones ... some of the touch screens didn't function as ...

Trans-Atlantic Cruise. Lots of time on the ship with close friends. I personally enjoy the trivia. Some of the activity personnel seemed to need more training in running the trivia. For example: The day they had ...

Cold food and unclean room

This was our first experience of Royal Caribbean but sadly, very likely to be our last. Embarkation and disembarkation went quite quickly and smoothly but that is about it for the positives. We did not choose or ...
