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).

Independence Of The Seas T...

By Caroline Kyle

Last week I sailed on the newly rejuvenated Independence of the Seas. As I’ve mentioned before she’s always been one of my favourite ships, but it’s been a few years since I was last onboard so I was keen to see the changesI was onboard for 2 mini cruises back to back so I’ll be splitting my review over a couple of blogsDay 1Arrived at the port at 12:00 and as a platinum member, I had priority check-in, so thankfully I skipped the huge queue and was onboard within 30 m...

Are Marella Cruises the best k...

By George Davison

George Davison's blog

Are Thomson (sorry Marella Cruises, bad habit) the best kept secret in cruising?You probably read that question, as I did typing it, with a confused look on your face. Marella Cruises, the best kept secret in cruising, surely not! For most people when you say Thomson or Marella Cruises, and ask them what they think of them, their reaction is often one of displeasure and statements of oh I would never cruise with them or only if I have to. But why?I think for a lot of people, the image they...

FUNICULAR FUN IN BERGEN!

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

So on our recent Fjords cruise on Balmoral myself and Holly decided that having splashed out, quite literally, on the Rib Adventure in Eidfjord that we would just do our own thing in Bergen, get off the ship and wander around, however, just outside the cruise terminal we happened upon a Hop On Hop Off Bus Stop and decided that we would have a tour round Bergen on that, covering more ground. The tour takes around an hour and you get a good taste of the city, Norway’s second largest, all ...
