Cruise With Friends

I was not in a wheelchair when we booked. We tried to bid and get a junior suite. That didn’t happen. We survived but things were tight in the room as stated in my review. There is virtually little space to walk between the bed and wall to get to the other side of the bed or to the balcony.

Amazing fun-filled Western Caribbean Cruise

May 22nd, 2019

We truly loved this cruise! The entertainment was excellent, the shows were amazing and the comedians were so funny! There was such a great variety of something to do for everyone. The food in both the buffet and the dining room were delicious and a great variety was offered. The customer service was superior! The ship was kept clean and beautiful!

Loved my cruise. Second trip with Royal Caribbean (and not my last). My son had a blast at the camp on board and asked to go several times. There is so much to do in board, all of the slides were a blast. My son had a lot of fun on the flowrider. The food was good and wait staff great. Entertainment was wonderful.

Much needed Fun in the Sun Vacation

Our plan was to relax and recharge. We did just this, no hectic schedule; great bar staff, spa services, excellent specialty restaurants - HIGHLY RECOMMEND 150 in Central Park.

Symphony OTS is a gorgeous ship. Embarkation is a breeze, ten min. top. disembarkcation is just as fast. Ship may seem crowded first day until people find their way. There are so many things to do to keep you entertained, shows, games, etc or just relax by the pools, get there early. But when there is a function on the promenade it can be quite crowded, remember there are 6000 people on the ship. The service in main dining room is great and the food is good. The Windjammer food can be hit or miss. If you love seafood, Hooked Restaurant is the place. Overall a great ship.

BEST CRUISE SHIP EVER!

This was one of the best cruises I have been on. Royal always does a GREAT job but a ship this size was truly amazing. Words cannot explain it. It's a MUST sail experience.

Symphony of the Seas is truly one of Royal Caribbean's most beautiful ships ! From Central Park to the Boardwalk to the ice skating and aqua shows, Broadway plays, everything was wonderful! Cabins are roomy and kept clean , specialty restaurants are awesome! Ship never feels crowded and the best part is that service from the entire staff and crew is top notch!

Best Cruise ever!

Cruise started great until first port at ST Maarten, another guest was flying a drone from their room spying into our room from the balcony. My wife was changing into her bathing suit at the time when I spotted the drone so I ran towards the door and the drone crashed onto our balcony, I proceeded to grab it and remove the battery. Customer service called asking if I would give the drone back and I refused and said not till I speak with security. Drone was taken and nothing was done other than us getting a sorry from security, multiple emails have been sent to Royal and no response, made a call and was told they can’t disclose any information of what was done if anything was done. I feel like our privacy was totally violated and Royal could care less.

Great ship but not a lot to do after dinner if you have the late dinner! There should have been more things going on by the pool on sea days didn’t see the live band to much unlike other ships!
