I chose this cruise for the price and also to experience something different from my previous cruise with a different liner, I also enjoyed that cruise experience. The embarkation went smooth, however the express debarkation was anything but, we still exited the ship in a timely manner. Our room attendant, Henry, cleaned our room twice daily and also made lovely towel animals. If we needed ...

We chose royal Caribbean on friends input and reviews..the cabin was nice and clean..we had a balcony room on the 7th deck by the elevators and we love it .. some reviews said it would be noisy but it never was..being by the elevators near the middle of the ship gave us easy access to everything,shows shopping and some restaurants..they were a elevator ride away ....our only complaints was the ...

Age 30s

We were treated like second class citizens, blatantly ignored multiple times at bars, questioned and brought into back of security for requesting a room change, among a laundry list of other things. We brought our own ice skates only for ice skating sessions to be misprints on the Cruise Compass, and when we were told that we would be contacted for our private sessions, that never happened. When ...

We went as a family and it is a comfortable, spacious cruise, with a great area to walk, the activities of the cruise are excellent, the staff is extremely friendly, the Windjamer is wide with a great variety of food at all hours, differentiate between employees Qiu Xu, in Windjamer, and Iputu in the general restaurant. Jason on the 7th floor excellent server for the cabin. The excursions are ...

Good time - almost great - on Freedom of the Seas. We sailed a repositioning cruise from Port Everglades to San Juan. Truly only 2 negative items to pass along. At embarkation we had a grumpy older man smart off because we didn't have a pen to fill out our medical form "You came on a cruise without something to write with?" - I didn't see that in our boarding packet - sorry... Second was the ...

From the moment we boarded, we felt pampered and appreciated! The state rooms were comfortable and cleaned daily, by friendly staff that tried to anticipate needs. The dining was spectacular, offered a great variety in selection in the Buffet type dining area, and classic elegance in the more formal dining rooms. The staff, all over the ship, were friendly and helpful. The ports of call were ...

We chose this as a first cruise and it was priced nicely. Pros included service staff. They were very attentive and always cheerful. That's it. Cons: food was mediocre to awful. The main dining room offerings were sparse...spaghetti? really? roasted turkey? seriously? The windjammer buffet was good for breakfast...horrid for lunch including several Asian dishes that were unrecognizable ...

After learning that my Brother was comming from India to USA and spend few months with our mother I started thinking what shall we do that will make our Mom happy. She was turning 90 and has not seen her all now grown up six children for a long long time at once at one place. The 1st thing that came to my mind was Morthers Day get together at all inclusive resort. But that would not have any ...

We just returned from Freedom's Eastern Caribbean cruise. This was our second journey on this ship and time has been kind to her. She was as beautiful as on our 2012 cruise. The cabin was clean, the food was great (always), and each night we enjoyed a different show....we loved the ventriloquist. While the hurricane damage was evident on St. Maarten, it was still our favorite port of call. ...

We are regular Royal Caribbean cruisers (16 cruises). Well let's say we were. Royal Caribbean has decided it wants to compete with the Disney ships. There were over 350 kids on the ship. Surprise! Also, they do not enforce their own rules on dress code in the dining room, Diamond member requirements to attend private functions, and more. They used to care, now they don’t.. People are wearing ...
