Favorite Royal Class And Ship


Recommended Posts

We love Harmony & Symphony. No other cruise line can beat the Star Class Villa Suite that sleeps up to 14! We love Star Class and book Royal as often as we can. Prices have gone up considerably though.

I wish Royal would implement a dueling pianos concept. It's great fun and I think it would be a hit.

Yuck who wants to spend 7 days (or even 1 day)  in a hotel room with 14 people!? 
 

I like your dueling piano idea though. Those are fun.

Quantum class, Freedom/ Voyager class - totally dislike Oasis class do not like the layout the  central park and boardwalk area are nothing we like - so the whole ship does not feel right...can't undestand why Oasis class is so popular!

B/c different people have different tastes and preferences?

 

I can't stand any ship smaller than Voyager class. They feel claustrophobic to me. I need a promenade. Others love the older, smaller ships. Different strokes...

I seriously don't know 14 people I'd share a cabin with🤣

 

3 in an A1 was crowded for me😉

We usually tap out at 9, but when you're sharing that rate 9 ways it's very affordable.

I hear you but we're not in the room most of the time. Only a few hours in the am/eve. It's really 4 bedrooms with a common area and folks can have privacy in their rooms. 2 interior rooms & 2 balcony suites with a common living/dining room.

Yea, but there is more to life than amortization of an affordable trip.

 

I like my space

Try the Radiance class ,  they are a more traditional layout that you may like .

I personally dont like them as i like Oasis class .

Spent 8 days on her and never once stopped in Schooner. Loved Music Hall

 

We loved Giovanni's wine bar.  Good selection, comfy chairs, no blasting loud music.

I like the quantum class, but have only been on Odyssey, and I would really like to know if Anthem is worth it.

Of course it is!  We have been on Ovation, Anthem, and Odyssey.  We will be on Quantum in August.  The only main difference is the sky pad that only the Odyssey has in this class and the vie that is completely open on the Odyssey, but not on the others. Those are the only differences that I noticed.

Anthem is definitely worth it!  Have sailed Anthem many times and love the entertainment.  We Will Rock You is excellent.  Spectra's Cabaret is really good too.  Most of the Tribute Bands we have seen have been really good too.  Lots of food options, both included in your cruise fare, like Cafe at Two70 and Solarium Bistro, or at an additional cost like Chops, Jamies, and Wonderland.  I can't wait for Anthem to get back to Cape Liberty.

How is Giovani's Table vs Jamie's? We really love Jamie's. The Lemon Meringue Cheesecake is to die for and so is the Lasagna. 

 

Fried Lasagna at wine bar is really good.

They had dueling pianos years ago on Sovereign.  Not sure if it was on other ships.

To me, the Symphony is the best. We've also sailed the Ovation in Alaska, which was very nice, but not in the Oasis Class of ships. The Wonder was beautiful, but the shows were underwhelming.

Covered pool gone on Odyssey 

 

Giovanni's Kitchen & Wine Bar is a nice switch from Vintages and Jamie's

We just booked Ovation OL Alaska July 2023. Is that the best ship for Alaska compared with other lines offering $$$ suites?
