Has anybody heard how St. Kitts made out? They're in that same "neighborhood" but I haven't really heard much about them.

Thanks for your review! Really enjoyed reading it. The Skyline situation with the open club in the middle of the casino sounds a little strange... I assume they were going for something and it just...

I loved the Music Hall on Anthem and it definitely reminded me of the two-story dance clubs of the past... although it was bigger, more open, and more conducive to hosting other events.

However,...

Chrissy, I've done both and it's definitely quieter than the Breakaway, which is a very loud and hectic ship (which I happened to love, btw). Only negative similarity is that deck chairs are...

This is one of the reasons I've trended away from RCI lately... I've run into either great DJs with no crowd to enjoy them (Anthem) or a great crowd with terrible DJs (Oasis / Allure). I've had...

Any sense of how difficult it was to get a reservation at reasonable times (I.e., not 5pm or 9:30pm) at Bayamo? Not 100% sure I want to go but am wondering if it would be a problem to wait until I'm...

Internet was absolutely dreadful on both of my Breakaway sailings--to the point of being unusable at times on my second one. Very glad to hear that Escape has newly updated internet and would love...

It's definitely a "large balcony" by Breakaway standards (where the balconies are generally tiny). If it helps you visualize, my B6 on Breakaway had two loungers facing out, and they took up the...

Thanks Rick for a truly epic review! I've been super disappointed with the turn the nightlife on Royal has taken in recent years--and ripping out those awesome Gothic dance clubs on the Voyager and...

Got off yesterday and did not have this problem. Only bars that were crowded were the pool deck bars on sea days, but wait was generally no more than 5 minutes.

So glad to hear that the coffee on X has improved. We were last on in 2013 and it was gross!

That's your opinion, and we can agree to disagree. I'm in my 30s and happen to enjoy this type of music, which is similar to what you'd hear in a high end lounge in a big city. The good news is we...

Thanks for posting this. This music actually sounds great to me -- I hope they still have it on Reflection in 2 weeks!

The Chase Sapphire Reserve benefits are really fantastic -- I jumped at this card as soon as it was released!

I think this is spot on. I was fortunate enough to be on her first Caribbean cruise last November when her passenger load was manageable, and had a fantastic experience. I felt less crowded than I...

Can't recommend this event highly enough -- both for dancers and observers! We did it on RC's Anthem of the Seas last year and had a blast dancing. Others who were watching were also clearly having...
Feeling bamboozled by Royal Caribbean
Just want to note that these room photos have been wrong -- not just wrong but hilariously wrong -- for quite a while now. I noticed an Oasis Class JS photo posted on the RCI website as a "superior...

We're sick of traditional dining and really enjoyed DD on Anthem. In fact, it was one of the highlights of our 12-night cruise, and made the dining experience much less redundant. Some people just...

General comparisons between the two ships are abundant already on CC. I will just add, having been on Anthem once and Breakaway twice, that I would be very concerned about crowding on a Breakaway...

Are you sure an S class ship couldn't fit? I recall sailing the larger Explorer of the Seas into Kings Wharf in 2010. I just checked my pictures and confirmed... the smaller NCL ship was behind it...
