Please keep in mind that this is a very subjective review as it is my personal account. I know many love Royal Carribbean, but I was just not impressed. The last two sailings we did was on MSC which I was constantly comparing and maybe I should not have done so as there really is no comparison in my mind. I felt that we got a much better value with MSC, i.e., we had concierge level room and experiences for a reasonable charge that no other lines seem to offer. As I said, the service and cleanliness were excellent, but there there were too many little "things" that all rolled into one giant concern that I would not sail this again.
It was a fantastic trip!! We can't wait to book again!! I was nervous bringing my 2 small children ages 6 and 2. There was so much for them to do!! It was out first cruise but we will only cruise with royal Caribbean, we have been spoiled but the luxuries of this grand ship and staff!!
Overall the cruise was fun if somewhat flawed. If it had been my first experience cruising it would probably also have been my last. But as I have been on others that were really amazing I will continue to cruise.
All I have to say that for my fist cruise I would not go on a large ship again, way too many people and way too many small children. I loved the whole cruise experience and I will book another one just on a much smaller ship.
Overall the cruise and ship were fantastic! We are already thinking of where we would like to go on our next cruise. Due to my husband's disability we may opt for a midsize ship next time. I would definitely recommend this cruise!
Overall we had good experience. When finally we got used to living the cruiser's life our trip was over😊
If you are single family travelling with toddler i would say you go in group or leave your child in daycare for some time so you can enjoy the pool and solarium
Terrible experience. The food was cold and the services was terrible. The food was so bad at the main dining that people want to eat at the buffet. The buffet was packed with people and people have to stand fight for table. The ship was dirty and the ship was announcing that guests were infected was some kind of virus. The customer service staff never smiles and they seems like all guest were like thier enemies. The shows were boring. Think twice and more before you book.
The first three days for my family was very unsatisfying. The weather was not at its best, we where not allowed to be on the exterior of the ship for the first day, the dining arrangements where messed up, and some of the staffs where not very plight. Once we got to Florida my experience got a lot better. All the issues I had was fixed, and I start having some fun. My favorite stop was Cococay Bahamas. Also when you want some peace and quiet to unwind go the Solarium at the back of the ship. I also love having lunch at the Two70 dinner, very clean and great sandwiches.
A nice and relaxing week. Would recommend that they have a max amount of kids for a week though. There's not enough to do with that many kids on board. My kids missed out on a lot because everything booked.
I enjoyed myself very much and will be traveling again. I had more than enough food. So much to do, I didn't sleep much. The staff were exceptionally nice and experts in their own fields. The cruise was also smooth sailing.
Would love to cruise again on this ship and bring our grown children this time as they would have really enjoyed it. Would ask that the crew or RC let new cruisers know dinning options better starting on the first day so that guests with my time dinning know which restaurants they can attend daily, and make sure that parents with young children do not let them go all over the ship unattended. Wish more guests would step it up a bit and look/dress nicer even on casual days. Enjoyed the formal nights and the casual nights, was just disappointed in the guests that dress like they are going to wawa for a cup of coffee in their dirty sweatpants at all times of the day. yuk! Captain and crew should be commended on their professionalism, it is definitely a well oiled machine that is trying to keep everything offered on board running smoothly and the staff did a excellent job in accommodating 4000 guests and making it look easy. Well done Royal Caribbean! We Will Be Back!!!
It was not good at all I wish I had insurance that would refund my money. I would never ever recommend this cruise to anyone. We did travel with other people that said they went on the Oasis of the Seas and it was a million times better, they were embarrassed they booked this particular trip for all of us(we had a group of 15)
