No Wow's Here; Just Average

We like a more than 7 day cruise, so RCI options are really limited unless you do a pricey back to back. We also like the larger ships, Radiance class & larger - for me, the larger the better! After cruising Oasis ...

Great ports, but ship is boring and outdated.

We chose this itinerary because of the ports, and were excited to try Royal Caribbean again after quite a few years. Serenade of the seas was outdated, boring, lack of good entertainment and activities. Food in the ...

Royal Caribbean was my favorite, but not anymore. Lots and lots of minor issues.

The St. Thomas Scenic Harbor Cruise and Shopping excursion was a sham. It was not a tour. It was an slow and expensive water taxi ride straight to town and after a short time a ride straight back to ship on the ...
