Relaxing Winter Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We're loyal to Royal cruisers. This cruise was 3 1/2 days down to the Caribbean with stops at four ports, then 3 1/2 days back to Baltimore. Of course this time of year, the weather's as you'd expect (cold rainy with some spitting of snow). So no getting outside on the walking or pool decks. However, the entertainment staff and activities aboard ship more than made up for the inconvenience. Warm Caribbean winds and hot sunshine made up for all that. We truly enjoyed meeting new friends and seeing returning cruise mates. Other than a disappointing specialty dinner in Giovanni's Table - Italian Restaurant - all's well and good. Thanks to our travel agent who got us a perfect balcony. We'll be signing up for more cruises.Happy

I am a Diamond Plus Royal Caribbean Cruiser and have cruised on several other Cruise lines (currently we've been on 68 cruises). This one was great as always because the staff was excellent, the passengers friendly. and the entertainment 

great but the food was not. We received food that wasn't cook and/or they did not have a variety of food. Several days we did not have any beef selection (yes there was a Hamburger slider for dinner but that was it at several dinners in the main restaurant.. I get tired of chicken and fish without the accommodation of Beef.. . especially at dinner.

Royal Caribbean Going Downhill

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Third cruise with Royal Caribbean and have noted several changes-mostly negative.  On arrival at terminal, no cabin found for us.  Had to have a key card made and camera malfunctioned.  Took 45 minutes to check-in.  Luggage not delivered to cabin.  Had to pick it up on deck 1.  Told alcohol was in luggage.  Went to deck 1 opened luggage for attendant and nothing was found.  Asked for assistance getting luggage to cabin and told none available.  Dining schedule screwed up for all couples in our party.  Food in dining room has totally changed.  Ate most meals at the buffet.  Activities that were previously free now have a charge (scrapbooking, crafts, etc.)  Bathroom flooded from shower malfunction.  Took two days to make adequate repair.There's more but my fingers are getting tired.

Longest cruise vacation we have taken and we have taken a lot.  Never felt cabin fever.  Enjoyed every minute on the ship.  The crew were absolutely fabulous.  Service superb.  Food has a great variety and good quality.  The shows are varied, well-chosen for a family cruise and highly entertaining.  Dinning room staff at our table (Troy and Ankur) were exceptionally courteous and considerate.  All in all, we had a great time away from home to celebrate both Christmas and New Year on the ship.  The we had the quickest disembarkation this time!!  The only thing missing is basketball court!

All staff are very friendly and accommodating. Shows in the evenings have room for improvement; not much on quality but on variety if the budget slows.

1) Cruise  were great,

2) They need to work on main dining, food was cold at some time my appetizer was cold when I order scallops and butter and bread is never warm also way cold.

3)The activities has improved

Their is no longer 24 hours free food after 1:00am, If I want anything I will have to call room service and pay a fee and I don't think that fair.  If I paid all this money to get 24 hour worth of food!!!

And if they could work on the TV station with choice of English and Spanish that would be great because the Spanish channels had shows I want to look at but I don't speak Spanish so I could not understand it.

Worst Cruise EVER

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Wish I had stayed home and saved my money.

Virgin Islands are junkie and ALL they know is jewelry and I'm a jewelry lover!

Food selection and taste was terrible in the main dinning room.

I shouldn't have to pay to go to specialty restaurants to get a good meal.

Holidays on the high seas

while this was a smaller ship so it fit our budget there wasn't much going on after 11 pm so we definitely caught up on our rest!!!! The ship did an amazing job of putting together New Years celebrations all over the ship and I would definitely cruise over New Years again. They also had xmas and Hanukkah services too. Great alternative family or friends holiday experience

A Relaxing Escape from the Treadmills of Life.

The Excursions were exceptional. The Aerial Tram above the tropical Rain Forest in St. Lucia was breathtaking & worth the $ 124.00 pp. The Royal Caribbean staff treat guests well, and we felt pampered.

Beautiful ship and beautiful trip destinations! One suggestion to the store, please put one more layer protection for glass bottles. I bought few bottles of liquor, and one of them was broken before I arrived home. other than this, everything was excellent, a wonderful trip!

i enjoyed the fact that if you didn't like the selection of food offered in one area, you could always finds something to eat on the ship.

Get to games and events very early to get a seat. Adults only pool is very hot and humid part of ship. Eat all meals in formal dining room. Don't waste money on the speciality dining. Expect long lines for cafe food and Starbucks coffee.
