I seldom want to write such disappointing review but this time is really the worst trip i have in my life. We went onboard on 23rd to 26th Nov 2018 to Port Klang. The 1st things we saw on board at the front desk is a blonde guy holding to a sign and it Indicate. Extremely dissatisfied customer. I laugh when i saw him but now I'm also 1 of them.......That day i should have join him. First when i check out their so call beverage-packages and i got a shock as i have to buy for the entire trip which cost about USD $59 per day. Worst of all any guest want to purchase an alcoholic beverage package must do so for all adults who are in the same room. That mean when my wife who don't drink must also pay for the package cos she is in the same room as me. If 1 person is USD59, 4 days will be USD236 and i have to add in my wife for another USD236 which total about USD 470. I can go Thailand and enjoy much better with that amount of money. Don't ever buy upfront online before your trip for the arcade games. Most of their machines is outdated and not in good conditions. Every game is at least USD1.50 per game. You can't refund the balance so DON'T EVER BUY THE TOKEN ONLINE. My 6 yrs old boy want to play the claw machine and the stupid claw is jam. He thought he press wrong button so he insist to have another game and still the same. Then we tried the other game and my 9 yrs old gal want to play the dance machine. The screen is faulty. We bought USD50 tokens and have to use up so we went to tried the table like ice hockey, the disc always stop in the center as its not smooth at all. Then my nephew 13 years old tried to play the shooting game and the gun is faulty. There is no one to attend to you and you have to walk outside to make a call. I got feed up and ask them to go and my boy started to cry. Ahhhhhhhh...... It's only our 1st day!!!!!!!! After our dinner we decide to bring my parents and kids to watch the Ice Odyssey for the 2nd session and we went to Q for more than 30 mins and in the end they told us it's full and no more. Ahhhhhhhhh......... During this trip, we also try to Q for the Ice skating on 2nd and 3rd day and all the Q is at least 30 mins and in the end it's still the same as its full. They are not organise, they should give out numbers so we don't have to stand and Q for nothing and try to come out a system to let everyone have a chance to experience. The foods at Windjammer cafe is just average, i find Singapore hawker food is even better. Their on board coffee is diluted and doesn't have the coffee aroma. The only foods i like is the main seating dinning at level 3. The food is good and the service staffs are friendly. 1 of our asst waiter Grahita, Ilham from indonesia is good as he serve us for the entire trip. They should reward such good staffs like him. He chat and joke with us which i can see part of the good points from RC. Their on board activities like Rock Climbing Wall, Ice Skating and Flow Rider is not full day, they have session and for about 2 to 3 hours each so REMEMBER YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY IF THERE IS LONG Q. Wonder why don't they operate like example from morning 9am till 10pm so we have more time to try it out and enjoy. I went to the front office to feedback to their staff and she note it down and said will feedback to the manager and get back to me but it's only a way to entertain us and brush us off. No one even contact me and try to solve our problems. I personally don't recommend my friends and relatives to go on board with RC(Royal Caribbean). Think they should change their name to Rubbish Cruise. Read Less

I am not a frequent cruiser and this is my first time on board VOTS as I wanted to try a new cruise liner. First day on board - I arrived about 1pm as stated in my pre-check in and Q about 45 mins for boarding. Not sure if the pre-check before 2 days helped as we all Q the same line anyway. Due to a mistake by their ground staff at the counter the pass given to my elder member was mixed up and the security kept shouting one of the name loudly which would have easily resolved if paused for a while and hear me out. As the rooms were not ready we were told to have lunch at Deck 11, the windjammer cafe which serves buffet. A bit disappointed with the food quality as I read online that it is better than the other cruise liner that I took couple of times before. Turns out this cruise food is not better although being more pricey. By the third day we are already eating just for the sake of eating. To be fair the " my time dinning " at the restaurant which serves complimentary International food is better than the buffet , but only sightly , hits and misses for the set menu and a rating of 2.5/5 stars. Most waiters were nice but the one serving our table on the first night keeps selling us "paid foods" like lobsters and even kitchen tour for a fee. After politely declining him several times ,what was before a talkative smiling face became a ...." poker face " ?? One nice food which I would recommend though.. the complimentary cafe promenade at Deck 5 which serves sandwiches etc.. the free Pizza is superb. As for the drinks the coffee and the fruit juice served during the buffet lunch and dinner was horrific. No drinking water was provided but there is a small water boiler in the stateroom. You may buy their drinks package thou, at a price. When refilling drinking water with my own bottle at the water station, most of the staff (except 1) told us to refill using the drinking cup ,,cup by cup instead of letting us or them filling up with their water pitcher. Reluctance to serve is one but making things difficult for customers ?? During buffet lunch / dinner the eating place is packed with people and many were left waiting outside( not allowed to enter) as a crowd control procedure. While the PA was announcing throughout the meal time asking people to leave the table once they finished eating and to allow others to come in, I saw one group of "nationals" hogging two tables after they were finished eating and the floor supervisor/manager talking enthusiastically in their native tongue and laughing with them throughout. Such Ironic. Cabin rooms was not up to standard and this is the balcony room I am talking about. The furnishing in the room looks old and tired and needs a thorough cleaning. bedsheet with stains and a small sofa that itches your leg after seating for a while. same goes to the bed. Our rubbish in the bathroom was not even cleared for two days and have to ask for toothbrush/ paste and some basic toiletries. And oh,, the tea bags provided FREE were stained and wasn't even covered. To sum it up our rooms was not messy but it is Not clean either. Newly packet Soaps were provided in our rooms but on the second day we did find "extra" soaps given to us which was already opened up and used before :o As usual all ships excursions are expensive. We did not joined any of them as we did visited Penang before. We did went out to the pier to take some photos. As for the swimming pool I would have loved it ten years ago when I was still a smoker, the only swimming pool and jacuzzi was surrounded by cigarette smell left right centre. I couldn't understand the logic that some parents would bring their children"jacuzzi_ing" just 1-2 metres away from the smoking area. Although there are many area that needs improving the entertainment aspect is one which I rate 4/5 stars. The various dance classes conducted by the staff is enjoyable, the singing by Kronos band is entertaining and the Ice odyssey skating performance is out of this world and should not be missed. I missed the performance on the first night but managed to watch it on the third night instead. A show that should not be missed if you are onboard. On the day of our embarkation we were supposed to leave the ship at 9.30am as such we finished our breakfast slightly earlier and was preparing to leave the room after taking a few more photos. The cleaning staff barged into the room and scolded us for not leaving at 9am and throw the "do not disturb" sign into the dustbin right in front of me and stomp out. To summarise no doubt the ice show was great, the entertainers was world class , it is the other elements that is lacking, the personal touch, the attitude of the service crew, the service level that you received and many times I thought that I am on a free cruise instead of paying thousands for it. Frankly now I remember that I even smiled more and thank them more when I received a service from them rather than from them to me as many were "poker face" and robotic. I would have gone for Ovation of the Sea next year but after this cruise I am not so sure. Read Less

For a first timer you might just want to experience something different but this review serve as a purpose to warn you, dont get deceived by the 'good' reviews online because it isn't really that 'good'. It's pretty much all about eating/gambling, but the food is terrible because its all cold. Casino does not want to serve u even plain water if you r not gambling. Its horrible. PLAIN WATER, not liquor ok. Service wise, crews are mostly polite and will greet you each time they sees you, guess thats the only good thing about the cruise. 1) Buffet is not that nice 2) Interior room is extremely small at the price of $500 per person on average. Ocean view or Balcony? $700-$1.5k, board a plane maybe? 3) No free wifi, 16USD per night. 4) Limited cafes, got to queue forever if you did not go earlier. 5) Room TV channels? Repeated shows every night. Watch a movie? Got to pay 12USD for each movies you watched. Read Less
