I am very very disappointed with the cruise to glacier Alaska , I only bought this cruise to see the glacier and we could not see ANYTHING.. All that I see was beautiful mountains that I see constantly because I live in Canada and we are surrounded by it , I was very excited for this cruise only to see the glacier that the pictures when we go to the royal Caribbean’s page to buy it shows .. the ...

Due to Covid, we wanted to book a cruise that departed and returned to Vancouver. This would allow us to fly domestically so the only testing we would need was to get on the ship itself. We wanted to go in May as it is one of the dryer months and it was the best decision as we had amazing weather. 13-18 degrees celsius every day. We needed nothing more than a sweatshirt at most and some days ...

Food Windjammer buffet food inedible. All meat dishes w/ the exception of the roast were TOO SALTY. Buffet drove me to become a vegetarian. East Indian food is a favorite of my daughter. She left it on her plate. inedible. Pizza dry and had few toppings. The moment the MDR opened for breakfast and lunch we ate there. Still disappointed. Eggs Benidict fine, but cook not flexible. I ...

I had read reviews about the ship being old and run down, so we boarded with low expectations. We found the ship to be in good shape, not sure why people complain. Most people say an Alaskan cruise isn't about the ship anyway. Our cabin was great. We loved the balcony and were surprised how often it was warm enough to be out enjoying the beautiful scenery. Bed was comfortable, couch a little worn, ...

Sailed B2B Northbound and southbound. Check in was very smooth, enjoying Windjammer buffet by 11:45 am. We've circumnavigated Australia/New Zealand 30 plus days on the Radiance so we were very familiar with this ship. Itineraries were excellent considering cruising have restarted in Alaska. Cabin steward and dining services were impeccable. Safety and health protocols were impressive. This ...

Booked this cruise as a last minute replacement for a Holland America cruise that kept getting changed... Looked like a great deal. Little did we know that the "great deal" meant poor food service and lack of many amenities. I have been on nearly a dozen cruises on various cruise lines, and if it weren't for the ports and scenery of Alaska, I would have asked for my money ...

The cruise industry is in a tough spot, they have had to somehow survive the last 2 years with virtually no income stream. Right now as they are preparing to bring everything back, they are also suffering from staffing shortages. Prior to our cruise, we had researched what activities would be on this ship. From shows like Pixels and a Beautiful Dream, to activities such as archery, wine tasting, ...

Great Ship, Poorly Executed

We had an amazing time on the ship and in Alaska, but Royal was more in the way of making that happen then helping make it happen. This is an amazing ship with great potential, but Royal vastly understaffed it. I understand it’s hard to find employees right now, but they should have scaled back the passengers if that was the case. There were incredible long waits for food everywhere because on ...

Alaska has always been on my bucket list and we found a great deal so off we went. Embarkation was seamless so first impression was great. Enthusiasm was greatly diminished when upon reaching our cabin, our sea pass cards (room key) did not work. It took 3 trips to guest services and one and a half hours later to resolve the issue. Dinner time at the main dining room was a disaster as the ...

I chose this cruise because of price and cruise itinerary. When I booked I was told that the ship would not be sailing at full capacity. This was not true. The ship sailed at full capacity and you could tell as there was not enough crew. With the exception of Izumi and Jamie’s Italian, specialty restaurants, the food was horrible at best! Entertainment was the best thing that Ovation of ...
