First time Royal Caribbean cruiser. : Freedom of the Seas Cruise Review by Pamelabelle
Overall Member Rating
First time Royal Caribbean cruiser.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The cabin steward was excellent, as well as our servers in the 5th level dining room. We did "my time" dining. It was convenient as long as you called ahead for reservations. We would have enjoyed sitting with others, but it didn't work out. Food was very good. Previous cruise lines we had travelled did not offer the variety nor quality of food. Enjoyed lunch at Johnny Rockets two times.
I purchased a premium liquor package for the week and believe it was a fair price. Top More shelf liquors and beer, included "house" wines which were the only disappointment. They should upgrade the wine list or offer more than two reds. Several bartenders were capable but not friendly. And it wasn't because they were busy. Language may have been a barrier.
Overall experience was excellent. We loved the wide corridors, the layout of the three-story dining room, and the attitude of the staff. Think we have found our new favorite cruise line! Less
Cabin review: JS1290 Junior Suite
Room 1290Great balcony, walk-in closet, excellent bathroom considering the category. Spacious. One floor down from Windjammer and pools. Noise not a problem.Read All Junior Suite (JS) Reviews >>
