We have always cruised prior on Princess and as happy as we were, we wanted to see if we were missing anything by not trying other cruise lines. We decided to try Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Sea because of the cruise ports and the ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on this cruise with stops at Labadee, San Juan, St. Maarten and St. Kitts. Beautiful ship! The Royal Promenade was very classy with shops, coffee shop, Sorrentos pizza and more. Sports activities on the upper ... Read more

There is a great responsibility when you recommend that friends take a risk and spend their vacation cruising for the first time. We took that risk and Royal Caribbean came through for us. The dining room food was fresh and expertly ... Read more

Service provided by Freedom staff was unparalleled in attention to detail. Chops Grille and Mexican Restaurant were absolute delights. The cordiality and attention demonstrated by Freedom staff is the finest I've seen in all my world ... Read more

We chose this for the price- it was a pretty good deal. Overall we had a great time, but I can't say I was wow'ed by anything on the cruise. We've cruised with Disney previously, which is almost unfair to try to compare with the level of ... Read more

In celebration of our 30th Wedding Anniversary, we looked for all cruises that would have us on the ship for 21/03/17. This cruise was our top pick out of all the choices and the price was right for our cabin choice - no less than 5th ... Read more

Wanted to try a very large ship. Weather was good as were the ports of call. Cabins are adequate with wide balconies. Food was as good as other cruise lines we have used. Lots to do on the ship and the kids (aged 13) had a lot of ... Read more

Royal Caribbean is synonymous with excellence and once again they blew my mind. From our entry to our departure was excellent. My wife and I enjoyed the onboard broadway productions they presented and the orchestra band blew us away. The ... Read more

Had an amazing time on Freedom. Ports were great but wish that we arrived in San Juan earlier than 130pm so we could've had more time in port during daylight hours. Cruise Director staff was lively and very entertaining. Olive or Twist ... Read more

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

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
