After more than 25 cruises, I found one where I couldn't wait for it to end. Literally, after about 4 days, I was wishing I could just get off the ship and never go back. But first the good parts: Room steward ...

Disappointing cruise.

Ship-Voyager is a good size ship, but with the renovations, they have reduced public space for more cabins. Too many people squeezed into smaller areas. Even though it was recently refurbished, it is showing its ...

Good Crew - Bad Management - Poor Execution

Royal Caribbean's business policies have ruined this ship. The crew works hard, but you can't fix things from the back seat. It became obvious two days into an eleven-day cruise that there would be less to do ...
