the disappointment came when we were being charged for daily tips. our cruise fare included per-paid tips which we needed up having to go to guest services to clear up. to this day, i am not sure our tips were paid. I tried to contact my booking travel agent and never received a phone call in return.
Beautiful, huge, and luxurious ship. Plenty to do, see, and explore, with amazing food, wonderful staff, and great sights to see, even while simply cruising!
One final tip: Don't forget to check out the "posting" board by Guest Services in case there are any gatherings or meetings for like-minded people, or post one yourself! :) It's a great way to meet other folks on the ship and maybe make some new friends! :)
Amazing experience and unforgettable memory buildup moments continuously.
They are there to help you anytime. The teamwork efforts they produce in harmony are just speechless. Wonderful people they are !!!
Will surely join them again. Thank you, United cruise !!
Thank you, Royal Caribbean !!!
Royal is cheaping out...no nuts at the schooner, no chocolate on pillow. Diamond club member & got 2 bottles of water & juice, & 4 cookies that you get at the bistro...very sad for diamond members. Did get 3 drinks at night.
I really feel they shove shopping down your throat. The esplanade was ambushed daily with so called deals and steals. And in the presentations about the islands, they never talk about local goods and supporting the business. Diamonds and tanzanite were the top two on their list followed by sheets.
This was our first Royal Cartibesn cruise. The cruise line was better than 2 others we have sailed on, but we have been on other lines that surpassed this cruise in food and ports visited. It is a nice cruise for a winter get away at a very affordable price.
There were over 1,000 children on this ship and it was impossible to relax. It was a total chaos. It's too bad because the crew works very hard and provide excellent service. But the atmosphere was tense due to the high number of children and teenagers.
We love Royal Caribbean, they provide excellent service, food and entertainment (the best). However, due to the excessive number of children and teenagers, it was not a relaxing and unpleasant. There was not adult area. Children and teenager everywhere. Teenagers created chaos during adult show. This promotion offered by Royal (children for free) was not a smart decision. Despite of the excellent service, food and entertainment, I am disappointed but we were not able to relax in the pool area, tension at the theater.
