Adventure of the Seas NE cruise by kkirschner8

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our fourth RCI cruise; we've cruised 12+ with other lines. The food is really not good. The dining room food was bland and seemed like the same entrees were offered throughout the cruise. The buffet was over-crowded and unappetizing. The specialty restaurants were only slightly more appealing. Overall, the dining areas seemed under-staffed. We enjoy having a nice dining experience when we cruise (quality vs quantity) but that didn't happen on this cruise. The ice skating show was fabulous and comedians in the theatre were really entertaining. Unfortunately, the regular Lyric theatre shows were a notch above a high school production. It'll probably be a while before we try RCI again.

Good trip, food has slipped on Royal by millse

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We enjoyed this cruise but were disappointed with the food in both the main dining room and the Windjammer. We have always enjoyed Royal Caribbean cruises and typically have found the food to be adequate but not special. This time I cannot even say it was adequate. The dining experience was not up to par for the quality we have experienced. I am not sure if the goal is to be mediocre and that will get people to eat in their premium restaurants, but the food quality and selection was not as good as we have experienced before. Other than that, the cruise met our expectations. The ports were very good. The entertainment except for the last comedian was excellent. The Adventure of the Seas has an ice rink and that show was outstanding. The service as always was over the top. But, since dining is such an important aspect of cruising, we might have to rethink cruising on Royal Caribbean in the future.

Great trip to New England by Hxxx

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Not our first time cruising, but the first time we were not headed to a beach location. The ship was huge with plenty to do - just finding our way around took time. The staff was polite and attentive and the ship was clean. We had a nice stateroom with balcony and enjoyed the views coming in and out of ports. Food was plentiful (of course) and the excursions really gave us a taste of the various ports. Five stars!

A solid "B" but wanted an "A". Bar Harbor and Halifax were amazing. Portland and St. John's not so hot. by thedoor

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Food service staff was excellent. Food quality served was only average very cafeteria style, main dining portions were very small (example: one carrot and one broccoli sprout was the side dish). Felt like they were always steering you to places to pay extra for what you already paid for. (did not have to pay for a burger and fries at the diner on my other cruise - they were included and unlimited) My Cruise with a different company had far superior food for the same price average. This Balcony cabin compared well to my other cruise on a different line. Cabin was well cared for but impersonal service compared to other ship. Recreation staff was A++ I'd give them a B to B+ over All. Probably will book another cruise line. Excursion was over priced and a poor experience - not worth it. Wandering around ports brought better fun and experiences.

We enjoyed the cruise overall. But disappointed in some of the excursions we chose. We did travel with another couple and that addded to our enjoyment.

Canada and New England Cruise by mjoyce1

Verified Review

We used a porter service upon disembarking and it made process so much easier. We moved quickly through customs and our bags were delivered to a spot by the parking ramp. I would recommend this service to anyone that needed help with their luggage.

Cruise quality is not what it use to be by patelka68

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The quality of the food is below average. The main dining room in the evening food is below average. I think they do this because they want you to pay for the specialty dining. The Windjammer breakfast was below average. Something simple as pancakes comes out dry and brunt. In the past they used to put out basic sushi in the Windjammer but now they do not. Most likely because they want you to go the Specialty Sushi dining on the promenade.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. All of the ports of call had wonderful, interesting excursions. The ship was nice, and we enjoyed our time on board. Ate in the Main Dining Room each evening, the food was good.

Cutbacks and more cutbacks by mvideoman

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

So many cutbacks and food was very mediocre. They pile your suitcases in the hallway the first day and you go find them and bring them to your room. Your refrig is now empty. No small shampoos or conditioners and no lotion. No chocolates at night. No free bottle of wine if you are Diamond like we are. No free movies on your TV like Holland America provides. Only Demand movies at $11.95 each. Carpet was worn. Cabins need updating. Beds were hard as a rock. Lines every night just to get into the MDR for anytime dining. Royal has the highest tips at $14,95 per day per person but the most expensive cruise line. Pick another cruise line. We have cruised over 60 times and for overall choice I would go on Celebrity followed by Holland America.

Unhappy excursion by arulsatch

Verified Review

Everything is fine except marine life shore excursion in Halifax. Particularly we booked that tour for whale watching and we varified before booking. But that tour is a harbour tour and they didnt go into deep sea. When we complained we got little refund.Director and manager are nice.

We had a great time. We got the kosher meals and the wait staff did everything they could to help us eat more than the airplane meals! The entertainment staff were amazing and hysterical!

I would highly recommend this cruise. There was so much to do on the ship - couldn't fit all activities in. I liked using the sea pass card for everything.

First time on Royal Caribbean by kimwestnyc

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

- The beds were two stiff - The pillows were too hard - Johnny Rockets had terrible grill cheeses! The cheese wasn’t even melted - The room key didn’t work halfway into the trip - The elevators were way too crowded and the elevator buttons don’t light up enough so that you know it’s pressed - The announcement to give up your seat in the dining hall is very tacky - The wait staff in the dining hall need to be faster and cleaning up the tables
