Royal gets great marks on quality of food, shows and the itinerary. The interior balcony was really nice and we truly enjoyed opening the balcony door and listening to the violinist and piano accompanist playing in the evenings in Central ... Read more

First let me start by saying that my wife and I have been on 13 cruises in the past 15 years so we are seasoned cruisers. Although it's been several years, we have been on Royal Caribbean several times in the past and had no complaints. ... Read more

Our Royal Caribbean cruise started off well. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. We found the Majesty of the Seas’ public areas clean and inviting. Our oceanview cabin was functional but very small. We enjoyed the service provided ... Read more

I got this cruise at the last minute (10 days before sailing) as a fun get away for fall break with my family of 6 (2 adults & 4 kids - age 8-13). It was fairly cheap & RC has a pretty good reputation. I read several reviews that ... Read more

When we were looking for a ship to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, we knew we wanted a Royal Caribbean ship. We had sailed on the Oasis for our 25th and decided to downsize to check it out. We loved the Freedom of the Seas. It is ... Read more

1) My husband's sibling set up the cruise so we went along. 2) After a few Carnival Cruises, we wanted to try another cruise line for an upgrade. Didn't quite get that. But overall it was a good cruise relating to RCCI (lol can't do much ... Read more

We hadn't been on an RCI ship in 15 years, and our expectations were high, yet tempered after a recent Carnival cruise. Overall the cruise was excellent and we highly recommend RCI and Freedom. She's become our favorite ship. ... Read more

We choose FOS for the activities aboard and the size. We are loyal RCCL cruisers. We've sailed the Allure and 7 of the smaller ships but not the FOS yet. The ports were not of interest. It was a 50th Anniversary cruise and our 14 ... Read more
