A real eye opener as to how Royal Caribbean views its UK customers

|

This review isn't so much about the ship. More about the way Royal Caribbean went about showing how little they care about their British customers. We found out a few days before leaving that this trip was going ...

Disappointing

It was our 50th anniversary and we thought a repositioning cruise would be a great experience. On previous cruises we have always eaten in the dining room for all our meals. We found the food to be cold. My ...

Making Friends Was The Highlight of a Boring Cruise

It pains us to say that this was the worst cruise experience encountered and we have used 5 cruise lines and are Diamond Members with RCCL. Thr cruise was meant to be special for us but was simply a ...

Second rate in most areas

Food was unimaginative and generally not particularly well prepared. Main dining room menus were repetitive and pushed filet mignon and lobster with expensive add-on prices. Theater screens/projectors were out of ...

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 ...

Five Star Itinerary, Two star ship

We knew what to expect when booking the 2017 edition of Royal. The food and service are now mediocre and bear no resemblance to the Royal of a bygone era. However, the itinerary was fabulous, including 4 days in ...

This was a very crowded cruise and not much was done to make it feel less so. The spaces on the ship were not fully used. Even though it was in the 50's and windy the evening movies were still at the outside pool ...

Less than royal treatment on Royal Caribbean

Poor planning and understaffed

Low cost for Transatlantic and an invite from friends drove us to choose this cruise but 8 days crossing with mostly high winds and cloudy skies dampened our enthusiasm, Royal Caribbean did nothing to plan ...

Astonished at the downfall of Royal Caribbean

We have been on several cruises with Royal and Celebrity and I must say this was the WORST. They were very disorganized and it seems that they have cut corners every which way they can. They have the crew doing at ...

A once in a lifetime experience - so bad that it will never be repeated.

We were disappointed by the way that we were treated from the first day to the next to the last. We were in an owners suite and were treated like we were in steerage. The only time that we were accorded the status ...
