This was our first cruise with the whole family, so we wanted it to be short and not too expensive. Several members of the family live in Orlando, so Port Canaveral was the obvious choice. Boarding was a breeze. Barely took 20 minutes. ... Read more

The ship was Freedom of the Seas and the cruise date was from 04/17/2016 thru 04/24/2016. The Services provided the main dining area were terrible, and its dinner menu of fish and meat had never been changed for at least four dinners. ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation was easy. Used a hotel with stay and go for the shuttle. The main stage entertainment was probably the best of any cruise I have been on. The ship's orchestra and dancers were professional. The food and ... Read more

This ship has gotten tired. I expected so much more from Royal Caribbean after the recommendations and hype. It was just ok. The ship is not kept up to the level it should be. The public decks were dirty at times; our balcony was ... Read more

Our cabin was nice and roomy, however, the shower was way too small especially for my 6'4 husband. I had read reviews about the shower curtain sticking to you but I had no idea of how hard it would be until we arrived. I even brought clips ... 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
