Nice ship but loud, rude fellow passengers and lack of excursions ruined it for us by MorrisonHiker

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

Be prepared for rude passengers as many of them cut in line, pushed and shoved to get on elevators before others could get off, YELLED instead of using an "indoor voice", smoked in non-smoking areas and just weren't polite overall. My 71 year old mom was pushed and shoved on more than one occasion. We've been on other Asian cruises and they just aren't as relaxing as cruises in the rest of the world since there are so many rude and LOUD passengers. Also, there were very few excursions offered to English-speaking guests and two of the three excursions that we were interested in were cancelled. If you want to see the Spectrum of the Seas, go for it but be prepared for a rude culture shock and make your own plans for each port of call. We liked the ship and crew but the rude passengers ruined the trip for us.

Nice but Stressful Cruise by pichetong

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Highly chaotic cruise with hyper guests and super stressed staff. Not one to take if you are looking to relax with many days at sea, as the days at sea are more chaotic than port days.

Right where do I start?... by superadz

Sail Date: /

Right where do I start? First some positives. Great room, Gordon is a brilliant cruise director, some excellent food (wonderland, sichaun red and the chefs table in particular were excellent. Jamie's and izumi below average) staff were great virtually without exception, the music hall and 270 lounge are great venues, solarium and indoor pool are very good. Now time for some negatives. on the whole I feel the ship is very poorly laid out, especially when it comes to outside space and the placement of bars, there are hardly any places to enjoy a view whilst having a drink yet guest services has a beautiful outside view. Secondly the entertainment was so poor as to be almost shambolic, the headliner acts were just Britains got talent semi finalist level acts (generally 5 mins of entertainment crammed into an hour) the house band (the Royal swedes) are very good but to expect people to watch them for 4 hours a night virtually every night is a bit much on one occasion they played over 7 hours throughout the day. In summary I was disappointed, it seems like a opportunity missed and royal Caribbean have ended up with a OK ship with a big casino rather than a excellent ship that it could have been. One further point, RCI really have to give up on the bionic bar. it takes up too much space for a item people only ever use on day 1, sure it looks great but it was empty virtually the entire cruise.

Lovely Suez transit by Rulocal

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My overall impression of the Spectrum, is that it is what it is, and out of 5 I would rate it a 4. But we probably won't see it in Europe or the US any time soon.

Great cruise if you speak Chinese by mickb263

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Great ship, great crew. The food and activities are geared to Chinese clientele. So, if you are an English speaking westerner, I would not recommend this trip.
