Amazing Greek Isle Med Cruise

Overall we had a wonderful cruise despite the room issues. We thought that the cruise line should have let the customers know in advance of the issues with these cabins before they were booked. When you book a junior suite you are expecting more of a luxury experience.

Absolutely amazing. A once in a lifetime experience made even better the crew, staff and other guests aboard. Really, really well done and I will definitely be traveling with Royal Caribbean again.

A Very Favorable Surprise

Basically only have one complaint, that being it was too short, another 5-6 days would have been very acceptable. RCL met and exceeded all expectations on this one, overall a great trip. Thanks

Cancellation of cruise

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

the royal carribean cruise was good but didn't have much to do during the at sea days other than pool casino and spa. The night shows were ok. Talented people performing and very friendly employees working.  The first cruise also was cancelled and the second cruise ended up with two port changes.  The contact through was never available and call backs always were needed if I didn't use the generic customer service contact.

the itinerary is great. The service is great. Clean. Friendly staff. The ship has much fewer activities than larger ships. Entertainment was poor. Go for itinerary but bring some books to read while on board.

If you need a smoking area, the 3rd deck has lots of chairs and the 9th floor behind the pool has about 10 tables (with enough chairs).

The Windjammer cafe can get crowed, so be early if you want to get a table.

Morning coffee with a few people each morning on deck outside Windjammer. Enjoyed self serve ice cream on deck outside Windjammers. My wife and grandson loved eating snack or lite lunch at Park Café in Solarium.
