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

The itinerary was wonderful. San Juan, St. Kitts & Sint Maarten. I think I could live without Laberdee, however. Freedom is a great ship. Big enough but not crowded.It is in good shape overall. Getting on & off was painless. The ... 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
