Date: 07 October 2012Line: Royal Caribbean International | Ship: Splendour of the Seas Reviews
Title: Greek Islands Summary: I was a little disappointed with the cabin quality. The entertainment overall was poor. I do think charging an extra 15% on every drinks bill was extortionate as paying almost $40 for a bottle of wine is bad enough. On the positive side the staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, the public rooms were beautiful. It just did not match up to our last cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse. I can now see how...

Title: Never again on this ship Summary: We have been cruising for about 12 years and during this time probably been on about 8 cruises. Although the ship and cabin were lovely, we were disappointed about the service, the food and value for money. We have cruised with Royal Caribbean previously and have been perfectly satisfied. We felt on this cruise that RC are going down market and are doing everything to cut corners The food in the main restaurant was bland...
Date: 17 September 2012Line: Royal Caribbean International | Ship: Oasis of the Seas Reviews
Title: WOW Summary: This was our first ever cruise experience and it is one we will never forget. We chose Oasis of the Seas as we have two teenage sons aged 15 and 17. Our 15 year old made many friends but our 17 year old made friends with 18 year olds and then couldn’t socialise with them at any organised event because of the age groupings the ship has, which was a huge shame. Other than that...

Title: Disatisfied Summary: Greek islands Cruise with Royal Caribbean for the first and last time. ship and food first class. Entertainment on board was abysmal except for one only show by The Beatle Manics. The price of drinks is extortionate. Dryest trip ever. Will have to go back to Thomson. Ships not as classy but entertainment and choice of is excellent.

Title: Pretty Good Summary: This was a holiday booked at this particular time to get out of London for 2 weeks while the Olympics were on and to take our son and daughter in law on holiday. She had never cruised before. Procedure to get onboard was slow hot and busy, but due to the fact that the ship was full and it was August, its not surprising. Once on board, we had a great day, cases brought quickly,...

Title: Disappointing Summary: Cruised with Royal Caribbean three years ago on Independence of the Seas and often with various Princess ships and was very disappointed with our Greek and Adriatic cruise. Royal Caribbean seem to be cutting corners everywhere to save money. You could only eat in the main restaurant on one day at lunch time and had to use the awful buffet on the other days, there was no afternoon tea, no chocolates at bedtime, the production...
Date: 11 July 2012Line: Royal Caribbean International | Ship: Serenade of the Seas Reviews
Title: SUNNIER THAN THE UK! Summary: First time on Royal Carribean having previously travelled with Princess, P & O and Celebrity. Ship was similar to other cruise lines, our cabin was very well soundproofed and comfortable. Staff in general were exceptional with the exception of some bar stewards who were unhelpful and lazy. Food was good but not fantastic, ports visited were good, Santorini was beautiful, one of the nicest places we ve been to. I was unfortunate to get the...

Title: West Med Cruise Summary: The luggage labels supplied by Bolsover’s were not accepted by the baggage handlers and ship’s staff. All luggage lables now must show the designated position of the cabin, i.e. port/forward etc. As a result of this, I joined other Bolsover clients on the dockside in a gale force wind to obtain the correct lables – we then had to stand there and fill them in. Ice skating shows were stunning. Food in the Windjammer Restaurant...

Title: first time cruise Summary: just returned from our fist cruise on the independence of the sea what a fantastic ship every thing was perfect ship is so clean. food great entertainment fantastic joff the cruise director was so good joined in everything we cant wait to go back again next year with the family already booked
Date: 26 June 2012Line: Royal Caribbean International | Ship: Splendour of the Seas Reviews
Title: Venice, Turkey, and the Greek Islands Summary: Splendour OTS was as expected – clean and comfortable, and, as expected, excellent staff. Drinks were also as expected – expensive – around $30 for the cheapest bottle of wine at dinner. And also as expected (as on most if not all cruise ships), they are out to part you from your hard earned cash at every opportunity, with excursions, paying extra to eat in restaurants other that the main dining room, and taking your...
Date: 12 June 2012Line: Royal Caribbean International | Ship: Independence of the Seas Reviews
Title: Western Med Summary: Overall the cruise was good value and the itinery was good. Access on and off was quick esp on final arrival in Southampton. Never really crowded except party nights in the promenade. Facilities esp for youngsters were great. However it was clear that the line was cutting back. Charging to borrow poor condition beach towels, library books in poor condition; charging more for shuttle buses, even the toilet paper was nearly useless, no coffee in...

Title: Greek Islands Summary: The ship was very good in all aspects, but it still grates that Royal Caribbean can be so petty in some things – they charge $3 for fresh orange juice. Why?! It just doesn’t seem worth it. Wouldn’t it be better to add a few dollars to the cost of the cruise and avoid the irritation? The dress codes were not policed, and the formal dining nights were not respected by everyone. I think it...
Date: 15 May 2012Line: Royal Caribbean International | Ship: Radiance of the Seas Reviews
Title: Hawaii Summary: We fould the staff very friendly and the range of entertainment suitably varied, making the trip enjoyable. We preferred the restaurant to the buffet for both morning and evening meals as the quality and service were first class. The ‘Windjammer’ hot food could be a little below an ideal temperature. A problem that we had on board was eventually dealt with very effectivley, though it required a ‘positive’ request from us for action(something RC staff...

Title: Loved the ship but…. Summary: We went on the Independence as it was my birthday & we had a good deal. We were with another couple. Our 1st disappointment was when my partner enquired to put a birthday message in the daily newsletter. It would cost 25 dollars!!! I couldnt believe it; we all thought it would be complimentary. Next, the entertainment. I actually thought it was poor and a bit old-fashioned. There wasn’t enough variety. Once you had seen...

Title: Med cruise Summary: Despite there being such a huge number of passengers, getting on and off the ship was very well organized. We felt initially that not getting into our staterooms until aprox 3pm on the day of departure was a problem, but on leaving the ship it is so much better being able to stay in your staterooms until you leave and so this system does work best. The entertainment. gym food and meticulous hand cleanliness was...

Title: Independence of the Seas Summary: The ship has to be seen to be believed! your first venture around the ship after unpacking is guaranteed to raise a smile, particularly when you first get to walk down through the middle of the ship on the street on deck five they call the Royal Promenade.It features an Irish style public bar along with most other street shops and cafe`s which are a great diversion at sea not unlike a night out on...

Title: Super holiday cruise Summary: For such a very large ship it was incredibly easy to find your way about. The Royal Parade or Street as everyone calls it is amazing and helps define where everything is. Do not be put off by the number of passengers this ships crew cope brilliantly with everything from booking in to serving meals. The amenities are second to none including an ice ring, climbing wall, surf rider and even a 9 hole putting...

Title: Wine and dine package Summary: Many fellow cruisers were SHOCKED at the price of wine per botttle. Wine packages for example Gold package – 5 bottles $155 plus 15% gratuity. Is this a sign of the times!!! The food lacked variety but there was more variety in the Windjammer than the Dining Room. Received excellent waiter service on our dining table 525.
Date: 13 March 2012Line: Royal Caribbean International | Ship: Independence of the Seas Reviews
Title: Worst cruise experience Summary: It began badly with having to queue for 4 hours to get on board due to sanitisation of the ship being carried due to the norovirus (we learned after our return home that 5 people had died on the cruise before). We were “lucky” – the majority of our queueing took place inside where at least we could sit on the carpet. Friends we were with had to stand outside for over 3 hours. (Passenger...

Title: Brilliant time on the brilliance. Summary: A lovely ship with a great cruise line but really not totally the best RCI has to offer. The only real complaint was that there was never enough lunch venues. Seaview only opened after lunch shortly before first sitting for evening meal (3.30 onwards) or too late for dinner (9.30pm). The menu now is terrible limited and the same carby generic food twice a day. Soarium cafe also didn’t open until 4pm onwards, again too...
