Fantastic food, superb entertainment and excellent service, who can ask for more? by jackie83351591

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas

I love the Royal Caribbean Oasis Class ships! People worry about crowds, but the way that that RC divides the ships into neighborhoods certainly seems to mitigate crowding. (with the possible exception of special celebrations in the Royal Promenade) The entertainment is top notch, the best at sea and much better than the last show I saw in Vegas! There is always something to do, whether you are cruising as a family, a young couple, or an older couple. The quality and variety is that good. Finally, the food and service were excellent and the ship was spotless and gorgeous.

Wonderful ship, poor shore excursion by

Ship: Symphony of the Seas

The ship was definitely the star attraction. The shows and restaurants were New York City quality. Highly recommend this ship, but not for ports of call.

Amazing by dlmoore7

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Western

In summary.....overall, best cruise I've had. The main things I will do different next time will be to book direct through Royal Caribbean, get an upgraded room. And rely on them for better details about the contract excursion companies and sites. Also, easier to make changes working direct with the cruise line. Sorry ....but I won't use you again.

Best Cruise Ever on the Best Ship Around by baunderwood92

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Western

If you get a chance to sail on Symphony of the Seas - it is the best ship in Royal Caribbean's fleet. And make sure you visit the specialty restaurant "Central Park 150". Ask for Ben to be your waiter - he went above and beyond. The entertainment on this ship is awesome. Plus, we traveled when there was only 1700 guests (out of almost 6,000). The Oasis class ships are the best at sea.

Once in a life time opportunity. Amazing ship with wonderful crew, only 1100 passengers so social distancing was easy and the weather was perfect. by rcederholm

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Now is the time to cruise. This is a time where it is comparable to the 911 shut down. We went a week after and it was great. This time period is very similar where you are safer than you will ever be and the number of people is down so more opportunities exist to do all the Wow things.

Cruise did not go to Southern Caribbean and major disappointment by Santa57

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Ship did not go to ports as advertised. RCL did not replace Labadee with CocoCay which could have salvaged the trip somewhat. Going to Nassau was awful replacement. Would never have gone on this cruise to the ports they changed to had I been able to switch to another date, which did not exist. Ship was big, pretty, but would never imagine it full with over 6,000 guests. As it was closed off for Covid restrictions we still had to have reservation to go anywhere to eat. Specialty restaurants where good, and not very busy. Shows were Ok, suite level gains you nothing but room location or size. Coastal kitchen a flop. Slowest place to get a meal and limited menu. Better off in main dining room. Pool areas are very small and no adult pool. They were crowded with only 17% capacity on board. Cannot imaging with full occupancy. Captain of ship a ghost. You only heard him on speaker if you were on deck. Never even saw a picture let alone the person.

Outstanding Cruise, wonderful Staff, the best cruise yet. by barbiezken

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Western

A beautiful ship with first class entertainment, a top notch crew, a wonderful, concerned dining room staff. It was so nice to be on the Symphony of the Seas return to cruising maiden trip. All of the ships staff was extremely gracious and happy to see us on the ship even though our numbers were few.

Slightly dissappointed. I have used RC before, and for this being the newest and biggest ship on the sea, it seemed like it was far more difficult to enjoy the onboard activities. It also seemed like there were more things you were not able to do. by tfemling

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I was overall disappointed for the reasons listed above.

Great Ship! by stayfit57

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I don't like being forced to write something when I don't want to write anything. So I will continue to say that this is oppressive and should not be a requirement. It should be an option, no certain person should be forced to write a review summary if they do not want to.

Specialty Restaurants Made Our Trip by scottiedoggyDFW

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We really enjoyed Symphony and Allure but they are just too big in our opinion. We've never had trouble getting a chair around the pools except for Symphony and Allure.

Awesome ship! by shawnbona

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Symphony of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

It was a great cruise. I'd give it a 9 out of 10. The only things I didnt like was disembarkation, hard mattresses, and terrible tv channels. Overall very good though.
