Allure of the Seas

March 2020 - 12 Night Transatlantic (Fort Lauderdale To Barcelona) Cruise on Allure of the Seas

First Transatlantic on Allure

First transatlantic on Allure. Ship was BIG and there were people everywhere. Hard to find a quiet place for reading, etc. Service staff was excellent. Cabin was not as clean as I would have expected. Would go again however.

Explorer of the Seas

January 2020 - 5 Night Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Explorer of the Seas

Smooth Sailing!

Royal Caribbean has the best loyalty program in the cruise industry. The Concierge Club is in an area inside the ship without windows which is not ideal but the bar staff was excellent! The Windjammer crew was right on spot, cleaning and organizing.

Majesty of the Seas

November 2019 - 4 Night Bahamas (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Majesty of the Seas

Short Trip But Fun

Older ship with obvious plumbing problems. Bathrooms had problems and the last day when getting off the ship, public bathrooms were locked. Went down to get off the ship at our tag time and we had to wait in line 30 minutes until we could leave. Staff is excellent and very well trained to handle customer complaints. Always have a smile on their face! I would go again but would wait until last call to get off the ship to avoid the mess on Deck 4 on disembarkation day. I think with these shorter cruises most people self assist off the ship. Also be prepared for the number of smokers on the ship. Largest I have ever seen. FYI, if you are smoke sensitive you won't be able to set anywhere outside.

Rhapsody of the Seas

November 2019 - 14 Night Canary Islands & Perfect Day (Barcelona To Tampa) Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

Great Trip....Horrible Disembarkation!

Cruise was great overall but it was such a horror getting off the ship we will have to think twice about sailing into Tampa again. Emailed RCL about it and they (typically of RCL) did not reply.

Majesty of the Seas

October 2019 - 5 Night Key West & Nassau (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Majesty of the Seas

Vision of the Seas

September 2019 - 13 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Barcelona To Miami) Cruise on Vision of the Seas

Serenade of the Seas

April 2019 - 16 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Ft. Lauderdale To Copenhagen) Cruise on Serenade of the Seas

Great Cruise but a bit cold and rainy

It was a bit colder than we expected and therefore should have packed more for colder weather. If you have health issues, a 16 day transatlantic cruise may not be the best option for you. Remember there is the 10 hour non stop flight back!

Cruise tips

Allure of the Seas

Allure of the Seas

Get a room that is centrally located to where you spend the most of your time. It's a long walk from one end of the ship to the other!

Explorer of the Seas

Explorer of the Seas

Lots of small children on this cruise so I would suggest folks that don't want to sail with a lot of children to book a longer cruise and one that does not include a school holiday!

Majesty of the Seas

Majesty of the Seas

If the bathroom smells, ask for a new shower curtain. They are not always changed out and begin to smell.

Rhapsody of the Seas

Rhapsody of the Seas

Lots of smoking going on in the casino!
