Awesome Ports, But......

We chose this itinerary because of the wonderful ports and 4 days at sea, which we really enjoy. The weather was magnificent! Lots of “older citizens” on this trip! Wow! Many are demanding and quite cheap! ...

Good Crew - Bad Management - Poor Execution

Royal Caribbean's business policies have ruined this ship. The crew works hard, but you can't fix things from the back seat. It became obvious two days into an eleven-day cruise that there would be less to do ...

No Wow's Here; Just Average

We like a more than 7 day cruise, so RCI options are really limited unless you do a pricey back to back. We also like the larger ships, Radiance class & larger - for me, the larger the better! After cruising Oasis ...

My kids sailed with 2400 grandparents and had a blast!

We got to embarkation on the early side and waited in a line at the port for a little bit, but once it got moving, the process went quickly. The first thing we noticed was there were a lot of retirees. Always the ...
