On-board innovations include robotic waiters, skydiving at sea, world-class dining and hair-raising West End style shows! There’s something for thrill seekers to lounge lovers, family holidays to couple holidays on a Royal Caribbean cruise.

Taster Cruise
By Michelle on 13 May 2015
Royal Caribbean International | Anthem of the Seas Reviews

Having been on 2 cruises now, we were very excited to be able to go on this Brand New Ship. Impossible to criticise anything about it really, surroundings beautiful, rooms lovely, not long enough to try all of the restaurants. The only point I would like to make was the hand wash station at the entrance of the wind jammer, i don’t understand why this necessary. The queues went way past the lifts, i thought...

Every Second Counts….for all the wrong reasons
By Barbara Macrory on 13 May 2015
Royal Caribbean International | Anthem of the Seas Reviews

Have just returned from a 3 night mini cruise with my partner and two of his grandchildren. Facilities on ship good, also very clean as new, but numerous service issues….wrong bed configuration, delay getting connecting doors opened, 24 hour delay getting soda cups (pre paid drinks package), wow bands and cards incorrectly programmed and missing prepaid drinks packages, cannot access photo on disc purchased on board as photo is locked, cannot use RCI website for...

Disaster
By Brian Le Vesconte on 11 May 2015
Royal Caribbean International | Explorer of the Seas Reviews

From the first day when our cabin (one of several) flooded the cruise was disappointing . We lost the entire first day of our cruise until eventually in the evening they agreed to move us to another cabin. While they were arranging another cabin for us we went to have some food and on our return imagine our alarm and indeed consternation when we found our a large dryer in operation with our cabin door...

By shane hutchinson on 10 May 2015
Royal Caribbean International | Anthem of the Seas Reviews

as usual the crew and ship were fantastic as were the food and entertainment,i went with my wife and friends for a short 4 day trip to Belgium and france ,,the only down side was that it had quite a few stag and hen parties on board which didn’t bother me to much but I was glad that I didn’t have the children as there were a lot of drinking going on,,,there was an incident...

Not as brilliant as I thought it would be
By Heather on 10 May 2015
Royal Caribbean International | Anthem of the Seas Reviews

We have just returned from a 3 day voyage on Anthem of the Seas. I must admit I donƒ??t know what to say about her. She looks like she will appeal to families with teenage children. The roller skating and bumper cars + Flow rider would appeal to this age set. Oasis with the water playground would suit younger cruisers. The ship didnƒ??t seem to flow on moving around and I kept getting lost. No...

Amazing Anthem
By Gemma on 29 April 2015
Royal Caribbean International | Anthem of the Seas Reviews

From the moment we drove up to the parking terminal at Southampton, we knew we this ship was something special. The sheer size of this beautiful ship is staggering, and makes for an impressive first glimpse! Whilst unloading the (multiple) bags from the car, and stealing glances up at our home for the next 3 days, we spotted some interesting sights! Sitting proud up on deck 15, for no apparent reason, we saw ‘Gigi’ the...

A TIRED SHIP STRUGGLED TO REACH A 3* EXPERIENCE
By Peter Tolan on 15 March 2015
Royal Caribbean International | Explorer of the Seas Reviews

It was our first Royal Caribbean cruise since Splendour of the Seas in 2009 and although we enjoyed the cruise it became apparent very quickly how cutbacks have caused standards to drop dramatically on Royal Caribbean. We started our trip with 4 days in Orlando and then went on a 9-day cruise to the Caribbean. We were looking forward to visiting Haiti for the first time, then revisits to Aruba, Cuacao and Bonaire before our...

Profit beginning to effect service
By Paul Rimmer on 01 December 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Freedom of the Seas Reviews

My wife and I have recently returned from a back to back cruise in the Caribbean on the Freedom of the Seas sailing from Port Canaveral in Florida and have provided the following feedback to Royal Caribbean: Firstly, may I say, that overall we had a wonderful two weeks with our friends who we were introducing to cruising for the first time and it was a wonderful celebration of our 30th and 25th wedding anniversaries...

Great mini cruise!
By Mrs N Booth on 09 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Independence of the Seas Reviews

A great family mini cruise to Le Havre and Zebrugge – unfortunately only 4 days. It was our first time cruising and we loved it so much we’ve booked another one. We bought drinks packages which the children particularly enjoyed – they loved the freedom of ordering unlimited non-alcoholic cocktails. All staff were really friendly, happy and very attentive – particularly our Head Waiter Ransel and his assistant Owen who remembered our drinks orders after...

Satisfied Grandma
By Rosemary Watson on 08 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Independence of the Seas Reviews

This was a much anticipated cruise with our son and daughter in law and their 4 children,aged 9 months to 11 years. All thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was a short break of 4 nights to Le Havre and Zeebrugge. None of our party got off the ship until it returned to Southampton, there was so much to do, and we wanted to savour every minute of luxury. I thoroughly recommend for a family get...

Disappointing
By Anna Zimand on 05 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Independence of the Seas Reviews

This is the first time we have travelled with Royal Caribbean and whilst the service, condition and cleanliness of the ship together with cabin size being very good I am afraid the food, time in port and the optional excursions were not good. There is absolutely no advantage in booking your excursions in advance with this company as on board there were special incentives added to which, in our case, we were unable to visit...

Quantum of the Seas
By Jamie Snarski on 04 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Quantum of the Seas Reviews

As this was the first cruise I had ever been on I felt an overwhelming excitement from the moment I found out I would do a mini cruise and be one of the first people to be on board and enjoying ALL or as many of the different entertainment, attractions and activities that this ship had to offer. As we headed to board the ship it was clear from the dock that my imagination was...

Quantum of the Seas – Staff Review
By Rebecca Martin on 04 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Quantum of the Seas Reviews

I was lucky enough to be one of four Bolsover Cruise Club staff invited aboard the Quantum of the Seas for its inaugural voyage and after months of speculation, the ship certainly didn’t disappoint! The North Star was high in the sky as we approached the dock and proved to be a very popular attraction for everyone on board. Although the ship is really quite huge, it still manages to retain a personal element; staff...

Quantum of the Seas Staff Review
By Nathalie Avis on 03 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Quantum of the Seas Reviews

The brand new ship arrived into Southampton 30 Oct 14 for the weekend and I was lucky enough to be one of the FIRST passengers to see what this all singing, all dancing, Smartship has to offer and one thing is for sure she offers ALOT!! From the moment you board you are very aware that technology is at the forefront of this magnificent ship. A steward guided us to a Smart screen that offers...

Falling standards
By Gaynor Hitchcock on 03 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Brilliance of the Seas Reviews

We are relatively new to cruising having only done 7 first with RC 8 years ago but in this short time have seen many changes. The food in The Windjammer was the most noticeable repetitive and lacking in choice disappointing too was the menus in the main dining room. We chose “my time” dining option DONT the queues each evening are horrendous RC suggest you make reservations for every night so that takes away the...

Madeira and the Canaries October 2014
By Alistair Inglis on 01 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Independence of the Seas Reviews

My wife and I have sailed with RCL many times before and on the Independence once before and thoroughly enjoyed it as we did this time also. We hadn’t sailed to the Canaries before and unfortunately the weather could have been better and we had to miss out on our visit to Lisbon altogether because of the heavy swell. I guess that Royal Caribbean made a bigger profit this time by way of no port...

Not a ship for non smokers!
By June on 01 November 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Independence of the Seas Reviews

I have given IOS only a 2″ rating overall purely because the captain has reinstated smoking both in the Casino and Schooner bar areas. It’s supposed to be in certain areas but you know what people are like – also smoke drifts over into the non smoking areas and if you want to walk through in order to access the main dining rooms the next morning the smell of stale cigarette smoke is awful. We...

Too expensive on Board
By Martin Leadbetter on 27 October 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Serenade of the Seas Reviews

The cruise was excellent in every respect, as indeed was the booking agency, Bolsover Cruise Club. However, literally EVERYTHING on board, and most importantly, drinks, was just far too expensive. I will not be using this cruise line again in the future. M Leadbetter.

Disappointing !
By Anne adams on 22 October 2014
Royal Caribbean International | Independence of the Seas Reviews

We chose the independence of the seas because it was a sister ship to celebrity equinox which we went on last year. There was no comparison ! The food was very average and not a lot of choice on the menu . We chose the ‘my time ‘ dining and what a fiasco that was ! We have never had to queue before but that’s what we did ! They had a booking system side...
