BOOTED OFF SHIP FOR DANCING

We have written 14, 4 and 5 star reviews about Royal and this should have been another. But it turned out quite differently. The internet has many of stories about passengers being removed from cruise ships. But what if the incident was caused by a crew member? Can you ask for and receive help? Can you defend yourself? The answer we soon found out is.....NO. What happened to us on the Rhapsody ...

The cruise was taken last minute as the one we where about to take the itinerary was changed so much that we cancelled and had to book another very quickly to fall in with our holiday dates As it was a late booking we paid full price for an outside cabin The checking in was quick and painless. Surprisingly the cabins were ready by 12.30 which was great. That's where things went decidedly ...

I will start by saying this was my 6th cruise overall but my first with Royal Caribbean. I have cruised 3 times with Carnival and twice on Disney. My cruise on Royal Caribbean was gifted to me by a wonderful organization. Let’s start with the refreshment package. They charge $29.89 a day (after gratuity) for use of 3 soda dispensing machines, bottled water at the bar or specialty coffee. ...

Terrible breakfast experience, really bad coffee. Activities a joke. Trivia twice in morning overlapped so could only play in one. Food cold, very poor service except at dinner. Two arrogant cocky young men did Trivia. Spoke with heavy accent, could not understand them, answers wrong, some stupid questions. Overall bad experience. Times kept changing, locations changed. No entertainment one ...

We just went on this ship in September 2019. I have sailed on many cruise ships and this one, in particular, showed its age and wear and tear. So many things not working and broken on the ship. My suggestion to Royal Carribean is to remodel this ship. It is so outdated. I can rant and rave but that's, not my purpose. The food in comparison to other cruises I have had with Royal Carribean was ...

Especially as a Holiday / Christmas cruise, this was completely disappointing. Decorations are basically one christmas tree. Shows and musicians were all "canned" performances with no christmas theme. Food was pathetic as well as the handling and preparation. I understand how so many contracts ecoli. The first 2 days the food in the main dining room tasted like ...

Good food. That's the positives out of the way. Rooms small. Accommodation deck stank of poo. Shows were god-awful ending with a finale of a guy on a bmx bike cycling round in circles. Utterly naff. Busy ship with nowhere to chill out without others stepping on your toes. Mediterranean cruise so why were subjected to Caribbean music every day? Felt like we were given a hard sell all the time. Pool ...

We have cruised many, times since last choosing RCI. In fact the last time was around 35 years ago. Since then we have travelled with P&O,H&L,Celebrity and many others of the same calibre. This was our third cruise in 2018. We chose this cruise as part of a package put together by IGLU to encompass Lake garda as the starting point and a transfer to Venice to pick up the ship. We had ...
