We chose this cruise line for its generally high ratings and reviews among young families and couples. We decided to splurge and go for one of the balcony rooms, which I have to say, was worth the extra cost. The balcony room certainly ... Read more

Cruised on Freedom Royal Caribbean. May 8-15 western Caribbean. The service and food quality that we had experienced was great. Embarkation at Port Canaveral couldn't have been easier. We drove in on Sunday morning and used the Port ... Read more

RCL has cut back on live music ♫ in the Lounges! We are Diamond Members and have sailed on RCL cruises over 18 + Cruises. We were disappointed to see the subtle take-away of live ♫ music in the Star Lounge and Schooner Lounge. ... Read more

The ship was the most boring cruise ship I've been on. The activities were repetitive and not very many activities for young adult (21-30). The island of Haiti was very disappointing, didn't get to experience real Haitian culture like on ... Read more

Embarkation was easy as we are Crown & Anchor and we got right onto the ship. The ship itself is very pretty and seems to be kept in good shape. Our cabin was a decent size but we found the mattress very hard. They are new, and they ... Read more

the timing was good for the window of time that we had. Thought that a bigger ship would have more for our 20 something daughters to do. Embarkation was quick but then everyone pretty much forced into buffet with all carry-on luggage ... Read more
