Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The soda package was very easy to use. The soda machines were so nice, lots of options. The only issue is that they didn't have a machine near the pool- so you had to go inside to find soda.
We visited St. Thomas and St. Maarten along with the private island royal Caribbean owns. The ports we nice and the beaches were beautiful. I would More say that I was disappointed in the service as you left the ship at the ports. You needed to bring everything including towel to the ramp as you departed, and lots of people needed to run to the 11th floor to get towels- other ships have those as you leave and a place to return dirty ones as you come back on board, something that the cruise should think about.
I was disappointed in the stateroom attendant. We saw him only 2 times- once on the day we arrived and once when we called requesting ice- he was not happy about that request-said he might be "sleeping in" since he had been up early that day. we never even saw him in the hallways. The other thing that was disappointing was that the towel folding "crew" was on vacation so there were no towel animals on our beds at night- not a huge thing- just disappointing.
The overall condition of the ship was good -there were some things that were broken- like the ice cream machine- it was fixed part way through the vacation.
Over all the experience was good- it did not live up to the high expectations we had following our experiences on a different cruise line but we still enjoyed our time there. It was a great value for a good vacation. Less
The room we had was very spacious and had a very nice balcony. We were near the elevator but did not have a problem with the noise. We were even near the internet area which was always busy but still never had a problem with noise. There is lots of storage space in the rooms- lots of drawers and plenty of closet space. The bathroom was just like any cruise ship-small- the shower was nice as it has actual doors and not a "curtain".
Freedom You Made our Day !
Great cruise overall but we di...
