We were excited to cruise the Caribbean as somewhere exotic and different from the normal Pacific Island cruises New Zealanders usually do. We loved everything about the ship, it was big but we never got lost. The service was above ... Read more

Another fun cruise vacation served by Royal Caribbean. This cruise met our expectation much more than did the previous year on Independence of The Seas. The difference in the attitude of the crew, from IOTS and FOTS, was night and day. The ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise and 4th Royal Caribbean cruise. This was our first mega-ship and I guess I was expecting a little more. The rooms are showing some age, but they were very clean. The bed was rock-hard and the couch was a little ... Read more

Preface: I took the cruise on Freedom of the Seas because I was part of a group that had booked roughly half of the ship. We had our own entertainment and activities, so I have no feedback for ship-sponsored events in this review. This ... Read more
