An all out, both feet in, FUN cruise

It was worth every minute and penny spent. Very port intensive ... do your research on each port before so as you make the most of every port and every day

we learnt not to let them put you on front of the ship because in bad weather you won't sleep and not sail over the Bay of Biscay in October / November time

An adventure in the canaries

Nov 7th, 2019

We had three days added to the itinerary due to bad weather and storms. We were directed to 2 x new ports which by all accounts were an improvement on the two that were planned. RCI made sure our safety was utmost and in doing so, added to the experience.

Disaster-Did manage to have some fun moments inspite RC's efforts to destroy my vacation

Oct 31st, 2019

Never so glad to be home from the cruise to HELL-Sailed on Celebrity and 3 international cruises -all wonderful-Expecting this to be the same Had many cruises in years past, never a bad experience After returning, called Post Cruise and customer service - at best, cavalier attitude-Who cares-RC reserves the right to trash your vacation at a moment's notice-I think they owe us some compensation We have a cruise reserved with RC in July-not sure if I can stomach the thought of dealing with them again
