We chose this cruise for most of the destinations and our 40th anniversary celebration. We were not in love with Labadee, Haiti at all. Probably won't go there again. The other ports were amazing. We did not explore the departure ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise and we purchased a Grand Suite to boot. I found several the bartenders and waiters in to be extremely rude. I am in customer service and watched several of them and how they treated people . They NEVER ... 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

We chose this cruise because we have been on this ship once before and this class of Royal two other times! She is a favorite. She is still beautiful, albeit almost 12 years old and still holds so many of our favorite first cruise ... Read more

First cruise on Royal Caribbean. Choose this due to it being rated well above others for families. A lot of variety but scheduling could have been a bit better. Many kids events overlapped and then alternately many hours had no kids ... Read more

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

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

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

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
