I don't like to leave poor reviews, but here goes and hopefully this will help out someone trying to decide on a cruise line in the future. My husband and I have always sailed Carnival and after many times of hearing from other cruisers that Royal Caribbean is so much better we decided to give it a try on our trip to Alaska. We did a northbound inside passage cruise package leaving from Vancouver ...

I will start by saying this was my first cruising experience, so I cannot compare this other cruises. Our cruise departed from Vancouver at Ballantyne port. We were to board between 11am and 3pm. We arrived at the port at 2pm and assumed about a 45minute wait which we were told by previous cruisers was normal...we were completely wrong! All in all it took 3 hours and 1o minutes from the time we ...

This was our third cruise on Royal Caribbean and we’re sad to say that we were disappointed in the Rhapsody.StateroomA few days before we were set to leave the Upgrade Fairy paid a visit and we were moved from a D1 balcony on deck 7 to junior suite 8010, which is an accessible room. This was our first time in a suite (if you really want to count a JS as a suite) and the room was huge compared to ...

We sailed with Radiance of the Seas' May 4th Alaskan round-trip cruise from Vancouver. The staff and their services were exceptional. We only have compliments for the staff as they all looked after us very well. The ship itself was nice but not "wow". I read that they underwent a makeover last spring but I did not see anything that stood out in the public areas that had a wow factor. Our ...

This is our sixth cruise on Royal Caribbean. We are Diamond Members and really love the Royal Caribbean brand. However, this last cruise was a bit disappointing. Embarkation was smooth and easy. Vancouver is a beautiful city and we enjoyed staying there very much. The port in Vancouver is very well organized and we had no problems checking in and getting on the ship in a timely ...

Our vacation cruise on Royal Caribbean began on July 22, 2011 and continued on shore with a 7 day add on package. Radiance of the Seas has been totally rehab'ed, so everything looked new and beautiful.Our Junior Suite with balcony was definitely the way to go. The accommodations and activities, though are not without fault. The in-room coffee pot was a disaster--very messy. Royal Caribbean's wine ...

We chose Royal Caribbean's 'Serenade of the Seas', sailing from Vancouver, as there was a special offer available. This avoided entering the USA at an airport, with all the associated infamous problems with US immigration staff. Having spoken to passengers from Princess, Celebrity and Holland America, in different ports of call, we could have had a better cruise for little or no extra cost. Almost ...

My wife, my parents and I took a much needed holiday to Alaska, spending a couple of nights pre-cruise at the Delta Suites Vancouver. The hotel was nice and my first experience with Priceline. I'll do that again. On Saturday we made our way to the pier, and had a decent embarkation. Once on board, we found the Windjammer and had a little lunch. It was better than most we've had on Royal, and ...

Reading all reviews below, it seems like I was on different ship... Anyway I'm not that kind of person that only see negatives, but that's exactly what I want to highlight in this review. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed my cruise a lot, but comparing to other 5 cruises that I took previously (this one was first on Royal Caribbean) I would say it was towards the bottom of the list. Did I become too ...

A bit about us:  I am in my mid 40's and have sailed on a majority of the other cruise lines over the last 10 years.  I was traveling with my son who is 22 who has sailed a few times as well.   We make the most of our vacations and don't mind paying more to make the cruise fabulous - after all it is a vacation.   Arrival - VANCOUVER: We flew in the day of departure (around 11:00 am) - ...
