We went on transatlantic cruise from NJ to Barcelona and it was perfect. It was my 31st cruise, 9th on RCl. Don’t believe bad reviews, it is amazing ship. If you are looking for traditional dining, you will be disappointed, but you are adventurous and willing to try different restaurants, you will love it. The variety of choices for dinner is excellent. In 11 days we did not have a bad meal, no ...

How to ruin a great ship, add lots of dinning rooms, charge extra for most, add more reservations, provide lousy service, call it dynamic dinning. Be aware menus repeat after only a few days in the complimentary dining rooms. Entertainment, Mamma Mia, reservation was not available when we finally got out of the dining room, so we missed that performance. The other two main shows were not ...

This is a brand new, very sophisticated ship. Some things work really well and some don't. Unsurprisingly the most impressive bright spots I recall involve crew members doing a particularly good job. The technology never really shined and it never felt like it was making my life better (I am a tech guy from Silicon Valley, btw) but was acutely tuned to making more money for RC. Bright spots: ...

We are back from a fantastic cruise on the Quantum of the Seas! This was cruise #23 for me. We've sailed on all the major lines before RCL, Celebrity, Carnival, Disney, Norwegian, Princess, MSC and HAL. We've also done an inaugural before on Oasis. I had hoped to start writing this review earlier but the day after we got back my check engine light came on. As I feared, it turned out to be my ...

Yes, let’s start with the ship herself. She is not a RCI ship in look or feel, she has the stunning class, style, décor and charisma of an X ship (namely the Solstice class). From the stylish two tier shopping area, to the soft furnishings, to the way the elevator lights changed colour to announce they had arrived at your floor, to no Bingo announcements, to the bathroom with the large shower, and ...

There were glitches getting on the ship but it was to be expected since we were the first revenue passengers. Once on the ship it was amazing. Very elegantly beautifully designed with a lot of smart technology. Some of it was still in trail mode but it will be amazing when all the bugs are worked out. Royal did however reward us well for the little glitches, $300.00 OBC and 25% of our fare in a ...

From WOW - The build-up - to UGH - The reality, starting off with the problems of online booking for dining etc and the horrific check-in at Southampton - to WOW - Entertainment incl Mama Mia, the iFly and North Star - to UGH - the problems inc lack of response from the Guest Relations (the door between the balconies - the door was repaired (so it could be locked and stop slamming all the time) - ...

I was on the maiden voyage and it was a "Wow" experience all right, but not what USA Today reported in today's glowing review. From the 2-3 hour wait to get on the ship due to the total technological breakdown of Royal's high-tech "Smart Check-In" system, to the double-booking of our room, the failure to deliver luggage, the malfunctioning of almost every single aspect of the ship itself (the ...

I have to report that unfortunately this is the worst cruise I have ever taken (and this was #77). There were SO many problems on this maiden voyage/transatlantic cruise that I can't believe that we actually made it across the Atlantic! Where to begin? Check in at the pier was a joke. There were a bunch of clueless people running around with IPads that tried to check people in. There was no rhyme ...

We had a great time on this cruise, the ship is beautiful and the staterooms very well appointed . When we booked we knew this was going to be a maiden voyage and that RCI would have only just have taken over the ship, we expected there to be issues and challenges so we had a open mind from the start as to what was likely to happen. Looking at other reviews here it appears some guests had not ...
