We booked late and being familiar with this ship, it fit all of our needs. Entertainment was good on a nightly basis with plenty of options for everyone. The dinners in the formal dining room were not as good as past cruises. Entrees ... Read more

The ship for it's age is in great shinny shape. Here and there looking a little tired. The ship was full and on sea days felt busy but that didn't really bother us. Staff always there to help you with what ever.(and chat). Do get to know ... Read more

This was my 11th cruise. We've cruised NCL, Carnival and RCCL. We have been on many Carnival ships up until last year when we decided we wanted to try RCCL again after a 20 year hiatus. We cruised the Navigator of the Seas and we scratched ... Read more

I chose this cruise because my coworker who cruises a lot recommended Royal Caribbean as having the best food. She was right, the food was great. There were lots of options for places to eat that were free and for a small fee we could eat ... Read more

Part of a Sears vacation package. Never had plans of taking a cruise, glad we started with this one. Although spring break probably not the idea time due to massive crowds. 3 ports of call kept us active and entertained. Staff we ... Read more

We all had a great time. Why is an 8 day cruise so much better than a 7? The extra day really stood out as a bonus. We enjoyed our ports of call, especially Old San Juan and St. Kitts. St. Martin would be have better if we just went to ... Read more

We chose the Freedom of the Seas due to the fact we wanted to see the Eastern Caribbean and we did not want to go on the new ship. The reason was we felt it may be crowded on the new ship. The freedom of the seas is a beautiful ship with ... Read more

Overall rating is very good. Exceptions: Dinning room experience was less than desired in that lobster was something you had to pay extra for. Other cruises I have been on make lobster available at all dinners during the cruise without ... Read more
