Nice but some ports of call were cancelled by edattalo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Harmony of the Seas

Please use patience when cruising these ships. There can be delays for embarkation and ports of call can be cancelled. We did not visit St. Kitts and it was disappointing but RCL did give us extra on board credit and we bought some art.

Unique once in a lifetime experience by sciencemarshall

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Celebrity Edge

Traveling on a reduced capacity ship may have spoiled me for life. Staff and crew were exceptional, though sometimes wished they would be a little more strict with rules. A beautiful boat with comfortable rooms. Food was on par or a little better than most shops, and lots of dining options. Well worth the trip.

First cruise back since the shutdown. Pretty much what we expected. by Gina32

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Harmony of the Seas

Even though CDC recommended not taking a cruise in Jan 2022, we lifted and shifted this cruise and RC kept our money for nearly two years. SO we decided to go anyway, and it was pretty much what we expected. No more than 6 in an elevator at one time, or just your group. Mask wearing everywhere inside the ship except when seated and eating or drinking. Several things closed for the week of our cruise do to staff with covid, and several shows canceled for the same reason. It was still nice to get away and to be back at sea again. Happy we had such a large suite and spent a lot of time having cocktails on our balcony, Very relaxing!

It was a very relaxing cruise. Waters was a little rough as the usually are in January. Very clean ship, friendly staff and great excursions.

Enjoyable Cruise by booperanddoris

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Elation

We just wanted to get back into cruising. Nice ship, a short enjoyable trip with nice ports of call. We knew these ports would be warm this time of year. Plenty of sun, and we met some new friends. Good food and plenty of it. When I cruise on carnival, I always look to see if Guy's burgers are an option. Because of Covid, it wasn't a great cruise but it was very good. Carnival is the fun ships, and we did have fun.

Fantastic Eastern Caribbean Cruise by keshalineberry

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Elation

We really enjoyed ourselves. Our ship was not crowded, i'm assuming due to covid. We never had to wait for anything. Staff was friendly and always helpful.

Fantastic by majorprops

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Elation

Although an older ship, Elation was spotless. Maintenance personnel were on top of every aspect of ship operation. Wait staff were on point throughout. Ports of call were clean, safe, and enjoyable.

Very Enjoyable Cruise by akeith68

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Sky Princess

The ship was 40% full so there was no waiting or lines at elevators, at the buffet, or anywhere else. Captain was very personable and was skilled enough to get us into one port that another ship had to skip due to tricky weather and logistics.

Excellent ship crew and services by mkurtgis

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Allure of the Seas

The cruise and time at sea onboard the ship was excellent. Although the weather was bad with high winds and seas the ship was rock solid. We had to miss two ports of call but it was great just enjoying the onboard experience.

Nice cruise by genie283

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Allure of the Seas

It was a nice cruise and we are very happy with Royal Caribbean. Unfortunately we only had 2 ports due to covid, but it was still a wonderful vacation. Royal Caribbean is fantastic.

Everything I dreamed it would be (in spite of COVID) by tammster

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Apex

This cruise was a bit odd in that only 1295 guests were aboard (we were told) out of total capacity of 2900. Honestly, it was a pleasure to cruise with such few people and I had no complaints about having to wear a mask (most guests were really good about it). I will definitely cruise on this ship again!

Enjoyed the suite, entertainment was lacking by angiewilson1029

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Elation

We enjoyed the ports. The beach access and pools were enjoyable. The ship is not the biggest and the nightly entertainment was lacking, but the food was good and they were constantly cleaning touched surfaces.

Worst experience on NCL we’ve had and yet spent the most on this one. by nancyazmail

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore

Very disappointed as we spent extra money to get a suite which was not much bigger and tips were $84 more for the week than a similar cabin. The specialty dining now has surcharges on top of surcharges for some selections. We lost 3 of 4 ports but only refunded $42 for port taxes. Lost our excursions and the credits that go with each of the ports we missed. Masks were not enforced at all and I am now very sick with Covid. I started getting mild symptoms on day 6 and the day after return, very ill on oxygen. Not happy at all with our cruise nor the lack of memories we wanted to share with our adult children on a long planned family trip.
