We kept trying, but now we are done with the Grandeur of the Seas

We have cruised several times on the Grandeur of the years, but after this cruise we both decided, this was the last. We will wait for the Enchantment of the Seas and keep our fingers crossed. We like cruising ...

This cruise was cut to 11 days due to bad weather on previous cruise. RCI did offer a price reduction - pro rata - or a full refund to be used towards a future cruise. Apparently full cash refunds were offered, but ...

Nothing like I was sold on.

First of all let's start by saying that I booked a deluxe balcony suit and spend over $18,000 on a 9 day cruise for my family. To start off, the cruise didn't even include transportation from the Miami airport to ...

Will NEVER travel Royal Caribbean again.

Terrible on almost all counts: Food: Main dinning room is horribly overcrowded, making it difficult, if not impossible to move around. The food is mediocre at best. The Windjammer buffet is actually better ...
