Our third sailing on this ship. Not as much of the "wow" factor as the first few times, but still a very beautiful ship. We had cabin 2613, an inside cabin, that was more than adequate. We never heard any sounds from above or ... Read more

The wait staff were excellent, even with my food dietary restrictions. They were very helpful and fun. Unfortunately the kitchen staff didn't follow the list of allowed foods even though everyone had the list. My husband and I ... Read more

Embarkation was not smooth. Apparently the ship had to be sanitized before we could board and as a result, boarding itself was somewhat chaotic. The food venues that were open during embarkation were extremely crowded and it was ... Read more

So many thoughts on this cruise! Let me preface by saying that I've been on 12 cruises total; most were RCCL but also NCL and Carnival. I've always preferred RCCL, going back to the Sovereign of the Seas days. Day 1 - embarkation was ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the time of year and the ports of call. This was my first time on Freedom of the Seas and the ship is very comfortable to navigate, with the exception of the 3rd floor rooms ... took me a few to figure out that you ... Read more

We have about 30 cruises with Royal Caribbean under our belts. The great majority of those were fabulous. Our cruise on Harmony (11/12-11/19/16) was good but not great. Embarkation and disembarkation generally went smoothly. We loved ... Read more

We love going to new ports and most of these ports were new to us. As usual we loved Serenade even though she is showing a little wear. Can't wait to see her after the November 2017 refurbishment. Our cabin was in a loud location and we ... Read more

This was our 32nd cruise and was one of the bottom 5! I don't have a lot of expectations but I do expect a decent level of customer service and this sailing failed miserably! The food was fine, no problems there and the drinks were ... Read more
