Good but could be better
"We choose this cruise for the Europe destinations. Rome was great to see when we first got there, a little crowded, but were told it's worse in the summer months. The cruise terminal is a long ride, but we had a..."Read More

A nice change to see experience the ship with only 25% capacity

After a wait of about 18 months, we chose this cruise as we weren't interested in a staycation and we wanted to experience a bit of warm sunshine. This ticked both boxes. The ship is looking great, crew were continually wiping down surfaces. You had to wear a mask whilst on the move bit if anyone didn't or just simply forgot ( I was guilty of that a few times ) , they gave a polite reminder and ...

My Greek Island Cruise with no waiting in lines

DH and I had decided we would not cruise until the Pandemic was history. Then in June, along came a deal, Covid numbers were decreasing, and we booked a Greek Island Cruise for August.2021. It seemed that immediately after our booking the Covid numbers spiked to levels surpassing 2020. It seemed Greece and our departure port in Cyprus were hitting the news. So we turned off our TV and called ...

Nice itinerary but ship very tired

Booked as a package from the UK, so included flights and transfers which was very convenient. Testing procedure at the port very easy and efficient. Approx 500 on board and 850 crew. This resulted in some crew being a bit bothersome in "selling" services...the speciality restaurants, spa etc. Being bothered during dinner in the middle of your main course twice to try and get us to buy ...

Living in Cyprus we decided to try RC for the first time, from Limassol. What a wonderful surprise. We normally travel with Oceania, Regent, Seabourn but were desperate for a break away. We loved the cruise! Fantastic staff, excellent food and drinks and a reasonable cabin. No, it wasn't the same as other lines but the price wasn't either. The only downside for me was the casual dress in the ...

We couldn't wait to get back on a cruise ship and booked the Greek Islands back to back. Every staff member was beaming when we got on board and so were we! The service was unbelievable, the food excellent and the Greek Islands are a wonderful destination. The health protocol was strict but it didn't bother us to wear masks when we were wandering around the inside. We took them off when we ...

We were literally cut off in the Coronavirus Epidemic so this review will be what happens when things go wrong. We are two upper 30s adults and our two kid, twin boy and girl who were seven and just shy of 8 when we sailed. This sailing was March 9th , so mid-cruise all cruises ceased operations, so this review will let you know how RCCL handles emergencies. The first two days were in the ...

We booked this cruise on "Jewel of the Seas" long before the Coronavirus scare and decided to go ahead anyway, as we have a daughter living in Dubai whom we wanted to visit. In the couple of weeks before the start date, RCI sent us several reassuring emails that the cruise would go ahead, so we were never left wondering whether we should cancel. I cannot speak highly enough about this cruise ...

Better than expected

I don't really get the criticisms of this lovely ship. I usually sail on better cruise lines and my low expectations coupled with some less than flattering reviews meant I was pleasantly surprised by a great week cruising the seas around Dubai. Public areas were very attractive and well maintained, staff were unwaveringly polite, helpful and efficient and the entertainment staff were great. I ...

We have cruised on a few ships and I did prefer this smaller ship,yes it's old but was clean and kept well. I liked that I could find a sunbed in a quiet location . Solarium was a nice place to relax. Safari club was my bar of choice lots of room and great seats in the stern. Entertainment was just ok apart from a juggler on last night who was excellent. MDR had no issues we were on my ...

We chose this cruise because of the interesting stops and the fact that the weather in the middle-east is much better than elsewhere, at this time of year. It also offered good value for money, as Emirates flights from the UK were included. Due to the coronavirus, we were told that RC had decided not to stop at either of the two ports in Oman, due to its proximity (and open borders) with Iran. ...
