minor complaint

The cruise was booked as part of a tour from Australia. The cabins, staff, facilities were good as was the entertainment. Passengers were crowding into the lifts with no regard for social distancing...one cultural group in particular. Our main complaint was with the food. We felt that compared to previous cruises, the food was below expectations both in the buffet and dining room. Some dishes ...

This was a great cruise. Loved the shows, the food was great, they cleaned our cabin daily with fresh linens. The crew and staff were professional and friendly. Loved the spa but the only thing is I bought some products to take home and got to the airport and they made me take out the big bottles and pitch them cause they were too big and these products weren't cheap. I wasted my money. I feel ...

We sailed from Vancouver (what a great city). Boarding was straight forward and efficient and went without a hitch (including a pre-cruise test for our daughter at a hotel immediately across the road). Overall we loved the cruise. I had been slightly worried, given a lot of the recent reviews in this forum. I needn’t have. Service was excellent and the food is on a par to our previous ...

We have done an Alaska cruise before on Princess and it sailed from San Francisco. We were interested in seeing Vancouver so it was great that the cruise left from this port. The embarkation went very smoothly. We ate in the dining room every night and enjoyed the food. Nothing to really rave about but it was good just not great. The servers were attentive . We loved going to the buffet for ...

Check in was flawless. Service in the Windjammer, wonderful (especially greeters Cecilio from Philippines & Martin from Jamaica). Main dining room was a mixed bag. The waiters and assistant waiters were awesome (Jonnalynn and Grace from Philippines). I did not appreciate the suits at the entrance where you check in for a table. We had "My Time Dining" and were told several time that you could not ...

We chose this cruise because of the good price and the opportunity for several ports of call in Alaska. It was a great trip with weather that is pretty typical for July (some rain each day, but no washouts), some chilly mornings, but mostly in high 60's in the afternoon. This ship was the only ship in town for Sitka and Haines stop (Haines only does one ship) and they became our favorite ports ...

My girlfriend is celebrating her 30th birthday, so we decided for this cruise due to the beautiful sights, as well as being from Miami where all we get is beaches, she wanted to see real mountains and glaciers, and whales. Check in was smooth in my opinion. Our bags took a while to get to our stateroom, and it was actually down the hall around a corner but nothing too complicated. We went to the ...

First, let me begin by stating that we had an amazing vacation that included gazing at glaciers, whales, eagles, and other fantastic sites in the Last Frontier. I have written a very long and detailed review [https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2864103-a-journey-to-the-last-frontier-serenade-of-the-seas-alaskan-itinerary-review/page/10/], but to summarize: Boarding & Disembarking - Since ...

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 ...

It was my birthday on June 15th and it was a cuise that I wanted to do. We were schedule to board at 1pm. so we got to the pier at 12.30 pm. and we finnaly got on board at 3.30 pm just as the Windjammer was closing. This was our 19th cruise with RCL and the food on board was by far the worse we have ever had. The service was slow, but we soon found tout that they were short staffed. The hot tub ...
