About Royal Caribbean

This is a great choice for families — second only to Disney Cruise Line and significantly less expensive. It’s also ideal for sporty travelers: The line’s adrenaline rush-driven activities — the best at sea — include rock-climbing, surf simulations, ice skating, ziplining, inline skating, and boxing (in a real ring). Entertainment choices feature high-dive shows on Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, as well as parades with stilt walkers and “Madagascar,” “Shrek,” and “Kung Fu Panda” characters, the result of a partnership with DreamWorks Animation.

Not a way to start someones vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Enchantment of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 12, 2014

No one wants to start a vacation by being greeted by grouchy line attendants and check-in clerks.

This was our first experience with Royal Caribbean. We cruised with Carnival the last two times and had a much better experience (vacation) They seem to have friendlier people working for their cruise line.

We plan on using Carnival for our next cruise!

First Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 12, 2014

Not bad. A little confusing at first. Easy on and off the ship. Food was not as exceptional as expected. Showers were small but very good water pressure. The shows were great. The cruise director was fantastic. The rooms were quieter than expected. Staff was very slow and sometimes rude when ordering drinks.

A great first cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Brilliance of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 11, 2014

Staff were so helpful and so friendly. Well almost all of them. They were the nicest poeple and obviosly had been trained well. Everything organised beautifully, food was excellent..

One suggestion- I would have liked a juice bar .think that would have been a healthier choice and easy to throw in fruit ,chia seeds, avocado etc, 

We did get a wake up call at 1:30 in the am and was supposed to be at 7:30.!

Mauree was our cabin man and he was a doll. could not have been more helpful and knew our names immediately.  He is super and should be awarded for his good service.

Somehow I missed some of the instructions as to what to bring.. like a yoga mat if YOU are going to do yoga and I never read about FORMAL night>. SO WE DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING,, MUST HAVE MISSED THAT PAGE WITH SUGGESTIONS..

The ease of getting off the ship was quite something. very well organised.

I would try to explore more of Cozumel next time and see the nice beaches. maybe rent a car and do more exploring or have taxi take us. 

The shows were great and we found MY time dining to work well for us.

would go again!! but not too long a cruise. I am having reverse motion sickness now that I am home. It is called Mal de Debourquement and you get it when you are sitting.I feel like I am rocking.. Happens more to women than men I read. I am on day 4 with it.. Hope it goes away soon!

Nice getaway

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Brilliance of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 11, 2014

The ship was very clean and most of the staff was very friendly and obliging.  The rooms were well kept, and the room steward was excellent.

The dinners in the main dining room left much to be desired.  The food generally, was mediocre.  The wait staff did their best.  However, the matre'ds were all horrible....not at all helpful.  We tried 5 times to get information on "My Time dining" and were sent up/down/all around but no help, and also, they were quite rude.

We have always enjoyed Royal Caribbean cruises, and this is the first time we have ever had less than 5 star experience.

Brilliance Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Brilliance of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 11, 2014

This is a smaller Royal Carribean ship but the service was Top Notch. The ship being smaller made it easy to find you way around. There were always seats available in the various venues including the pool.  Food was outstanding. This was the easiest disembark we have ever experienced in more than 10 cruises.

 Everything was fantastic.  Food was good, customer service could not be better. The only thing I did not expect that you need more money to spend inside ship than the cost of the whole trip.

Best 4-night Cruise available!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 11, 2014

From the moment we entered this beautiful vessel, we were amazed at everything she had to offer! Having cruised many times, we knew what one would experience on aWindjammert cruise with only one port of call. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised! The entertainment on this ship was exceptional...especially the ice skating show! There was great entertainment each night. As far as dining goes, we weren't disappointed at all. Our group like to eat whenever we want and not spend 2 hours each night at dinner, so we chose to eat in the Windjammer casual buffet 3 of our 4-nights. We opted to eat in Chops steakhouse for our last night. It is a reservation only dining venue and worth every penny of the $30 per person additional charge. We did dine in the main dining room for a special lunch during one of our sea days, as they were offering an exceptional salad bar and pasta special for no additional charge and no special dress code. All of our group was very satisfied, as the service was excellent and the food delicious. Of course, the fact that we were seated at a huge picture window where we literally witnessed dolphin playing and jumping in the wild added to the whole experience! We found the ship to be extremely clean, tidy, fresh, and updated. We found all employees to be very friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, and happy to assist at every corner. Our CD, Luke Arrowsmith, was awesome! He had a great stage presence, funny morning show on the ship's tv, and did a great job of communication throughout the cruise! The only thing I would warn potential cruisers about leaving on the Liberty of the Seas out of Ft. Lauderdale, is that the ramp/walkway up onto the ship is EXTREMELY STEEP! So much so, that if you're not in good physical shape, you may opt to request a wheelchair and have assistance in boarding the ship at this location. All of that said, we would do it again and again and again, as we loved every minute of it! Royal Caribbean has NEVER disappointed me! :)

Royal Carib. worked hard to correct Cruises Only ERRORS!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Brilliance of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 11, 2014

Royal Carib. did a great job straightening  out your problems, from the start we picked a room, a few days later our paper work came and our room was a room or two away, that wasn't a problem.  When we arrived on the ship they said on Dec 8th your co. changed our room #, your co. said you talked to us by phone Dec 8th and we ok'd it. We was driving South then and didn't talk to anyone.  We received the worst room on the ship.  The last room forward on the point of the ship.  My wife is handicapped and couldn't walk to eat!!!  The ship was booked full and they had no rooms to give us.  She said if they had a no show they may get something by 5:00 or they would refund the cruise price, we had many other expenses as that wasn't much of an offer!!!  Of course the ship was moving before that. Cruses Only said we had early dining but we received 8:30 time.  We have been on 30 cruises and never had a sales co. do such a poor job.  This shouldn't happen to a couple aged 80 years old. Who ever changed our room should be punished!!!  Plus Cruises  Only should offer another cruise of equal value. The stress was awful.

Smaller Ship--They Try Harder!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Majesty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 08, 2014

While the "Monster" sized ship of Royal Caribbean off a few more play amenities, there were certainly more than enough amusement features to keep you busy all day and night. This was the warmest of cruises in regard to Staff and Dining Room Servers, I felt like a VIP. All went out of their way to MAKE SURE I was enjoying myself and happy, they cared--like all cruises, the food was quite varied and all of it really good. The Shows at the Theater were first rate, lots of fun and laughter. That I happened to win at the Casino and departed the ship with more money than I came with was an unexpected add on to the cruise. Nassau, the Capital of the Bahamas, had it's historical sights but the basic tour as sold by Royal Caribbean, was mostly a bust--one of the two stops was basically to but Tee Shirts, Shells, Magnets and the like from local Vendors--the other was to the fabulous Hotel Atlantis, we could have taken a local Taxi and spent a great day there, with all it's amenities, instead of a half hour. Key West is just beautiful, the tour we chose had twelve stops, any of which we could get off, explore, and pick up another bus to continue to the next stop and explore the next area of interest, with no time limits, at any stop, other than to get back to the ship in time for dinner. The Majestic of the Seas, 5 Stars all the way. The reason for a 4 Star rating was the poor choice, on my part, mind you, of the Nassau tour and the endless guys trying to hustle you into taking picture, both on the ship and off. My review is of the fully rounded experience, there were two clinkers--the rest was Fabulous--don't think twice, book the cruise!!!
