Review summary

Very nice ship with friendly staff and service personnel. Horrible planning on Roya Caribbean’s behalf! When entertainment department looks at each other while doing a show and whispers this is the first time doing this I’m so confused it’s a problem! The tinder service was horrible! I caught the first tinder off and still took an hour and a half to get off the ship! Getting luggage once getting off the ship will be the main reason for me to never cruise with Royal again! Talking with elderly people who cruised 35 times said this was the worst cruise they’ve been on!

Boring we had plenty of time to visit such a letdown! Beautiful island!

Lahaina, Maui

2 out of 5
Loved the port actually my favorite island! Poor tinder to and from the ship! Two lifeboats for 4,000 people is not a very well planned visit.

Victoria, British Columbia

2 out of 5
Four hours in Victoria was not long enough! Had my excursion canceled and no notice of it being canceled! Beautiful port would love to spend more time here.

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

2 out of 5
No time to visit due to a horrible time getting luggage off the ship. Paid for the Key which included priority getting off the ship and priority of getting my luggage.
