We chose this cruise due to the timing (Spring Break). In Tennessee we have an early spring break which somewhat unfortunately coincides with collage spring break. That was our only hesitation at booking this cruise. Yet, we were very ... Read more

My husband and I chose the Freedom of the Seas because a) it's a large ship packed with activities and features and b) we liked the itinerary - I'd never been to Labadee or St Kitts and we both like San Juan and St Maarten a lot. And the ... Read more

We chose the one week of the year that we were stuck mostly inside. I very, very much dislike cig smoke and found we had to completely avoid the casino area as well as one side of deck 11. Even on deck 5 when you got to the stairway, it ... Read more

Given the higher cost vs other lines, we will sorely disappointed with our March 4th cruise on Freedom of the Seas. The awful weather all week didn't help improve our mood (We were At Sea for 4 of the 8 days due to weather. Each of those ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I was very apprehensive of sea sickness. It was great; every experience convinced me to do it again. From embarkation to debarking I was pleased; no sea sickness. The Freedom of the Seas was a great choice: ... Read more

Travelled with 3 combined families. We really enjoyed the cruise. We selected it because we had 5 kids under the age of 5. They loved the water zone, which was just perfect for their age group. We went to the dining room for breakfast, ... Read more

Love RC and their Freedom Class ships. Have been on all of them. Chose this cruise to get away from the cold and to have my wife see Grand Cayman, which she missed the last time we stopped. The ship looked great, you can tell what ... Read more

I chose this cruise for my birthday celebration which is why it was 8 day and not the normal week long trip. We left a day early from NS and stayed at the Marriott Hotel overnight. Embarkation was excellent. We arrived around 11:15 AM ... Read more

8 days and nights of pampering myself and my 2 sisters, 4 port stops (I have not been to 3 of them before this cruise) If you speak Spanish, San Juan would be more enjoyable. We stopped at Senor Frogs and enjoyed the entertainment there ... Read more

We just returned from the 6 day cruise of the Western Caribbean and overall, it was another great trip. The biggest disappointment was embarkation - which took us longer than ever, even though we had priority status. Over 45 minutes in ... Read more

As is usual and expected from Royal Caribbean, the service was outstanding on this 8-night Eastern Caribbean cruise. If you asked any of the servers for something special, the staff member would go out of their way to quickly get it for ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the St Kitts venue and we love this class of ship. The ship is dated and a bit tired, with worn carpet, missing caulk in bathroom, and we actually had a missing shelf in our bathroom. Our room steward was ... Read more
