Dont know what the complaint was but a group of us went on Legend of the seas and had a fantastic time, we were well looked after and nothing was to much trouble, our only grumble was the sunbed hoggers(those who place towels and disappear.

'So many' - I can see 1 review to which 3 people have added comments. There has been no comments at all on other more active website. However the behaviour of the Hispanics on board has been escalated to the highest levels in RCI. I am sure that the first cruise out of SD was an unfortunate episode and that behaviour and manners etc will be clamped down on on all subsequest cruises.

....and American's make up 75%+ of cruisers on RCI ships - therefore if there are major complaints, trust me, they would be the first to complain and blast it all over the cc boards...but not a peep out of them. As a T/A I have good connections at RCI who have told me people are aware of the unfortunate behaviour of the 'locals' - and RCI are always keen to prevent blemishes to their good cruising reputation so they are hardly likely to allow this to continue are they?

Xmas Cruise, 2 weeks - we met 10 Americans on this DREADFUL cruise, and they all said how DISGUSTED they were and are going to complain. We are in touch with some of them, and are awaiting their replies. We have received 1 letter from RC apologizing, not good enough. Perhaps they do not want our business. We would not recommend them to anyone. (1st timers).

How Much?

By Gail Ryan

How Much?Last week, out of the blue, I woke up on Friday morning with horrendous back pain.I tried to brave it out, taking pain killers and clamping a hot water bottle to my back! but nothing was working. I am not one for going to see my Doctor, in fact, before my visit on Friday, I had not been in over 2 years, so imagine my shock when I was given my prescription and my Daughter went to the Chemist to get it filled – 25.00!!I admit, I was vaguely aware that the costs of medicines had ...

The River Cruise Line saved as...

 I was shocked at the end of last week when I started to hear reports that The River Cruise Line could cease trading.I have personally sailed with The River Cruise Line in the past and had a great experience doing so. I think that they offer very good value for money and offer a product that can cost a lot less to book than some of their more luxurious rivals.Unfortunately Diamond Shortbreak Holidays Ltd who were the parent company of The River Cruise Line announced that they had to go i...

What on earth is THIS?

You may have seen the recent news that Celebrity Edge is now on sale.We’ve seen some artists impressions of the ship and I have to admit, when I first saw this image, I thought it still had part of the scaffolding attached to it….Turns out it’s not scaffolding. It’s a ‘Magic Carpet’.Alrighty then…. So, this Magic Carpet is bright orange and looks pretty horrific but I think the idea is good!The Magic Carpet will be what makes Celebrity Edges prof...
