 Royal Caribbean Cruise Line

Founded by three Norwegian shipping companies in 1969 Royal Caribbean International is one of two affiliates of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, the second-largest cruise operator in the world. The line's first newbuild, Song of Norway, entered service in 1970, and today, RCI operates a fleet of modern super- and megaliners including the largest passenger ships ever built, the Oasis Of The Seas and Allure Of The Seas. Royal Caribbean's signature Viking Crown Lounge is a familiar sight in almost all parts of the world, and the company has a strong presence not only in the Caribbean, but also in Europe, Alaska, and other "exotic" destinations. The company's Voyager class and Radiance class ships are in a league all their own and as a result, Royal Caribbean consistently wins honors as the best mass-market cruise line.

    Overall Liberty of the Sea Cruise in December 24-29, 2014: It is not a cruise I would take again. Belize was not worth the trouble of getting off the ship; the weather was not the best of the year... read more

  • Evan  Independence Of The Seas  Western Caribbean

    Overall, the most important thing I can say that should apply to everyone is that Labadee was, in my opinion, the absolute worst part of the trip--and a waste of time and money. Even if you're... read more
