I am a cruiser 20+ cruises 62 year old and very easy going. Obviously going on that many cruises, problems have occurred. I said mostly Disney and Celebrity. Good: staff was amazingly friendly and did their best being understaffed. (Except Guest services..Will explain in bad section). Windjammer surprising ok. I am Not a buffet person but was muc better than main dining. Specialty dining ...

The ship was nice and well kept. The crew in the dining room and cabin service did a good job. Check in was easy and quick. We had The Key option and I would definately recommend it. The serving sizes in the dining room have been reduced quite a bit most times my husband as well as other passengers around us in the dining room requested a second entree The problem we had with this cruise was the ...

This was our 5th cruise and this by far was the best overall because of the ship amenities, staff and excursions. This was our first time using The Key and we loved it. It was so nice to have a delicious lunch and have the full day to enjoy the ship. Our room steward Andy was top notch. He knew exactly when we were in and out of our room to tidy it up, give us fresh towels and even close the ...

First time on Freedom of the Seas (Only sailed Celebrity in the past). The ship is beautiful with a lot of cool areas like bars, pubs lounges and the pool deck is open and fun. Vintage wine bar was amazing and loved the staff there. Sky lounge was a fun area for game shows and the Olive & Twist was a good area at night. It was my first time with an open air solarium so that was kinda weird, but it ...

We were in fort Lauderdale, and booked this cruise. The itinerary was just what we were looking for. The ship is clean and the staff very polite and helpful. Everyone greeted us and was ready to make our cruise safe and memorable. Food was excellent; entertainment was enjoyable; Perfect Day at Coco Cay was a new adventure for us. That excursion had a very well-planned and well-run lunch with ...

I was very excited for this sailing since it was the first Royal cruise since the restart for me. The ship is beautiful and it reminded me of the Navigator. All of the staff were very friendly. Our cabin was an interior spa and it was very cozy and clean. Not once did I come across the room steward. The Wi-fi however was terrible, I barely had reception. The only place that we ate at ...

First Cruise, First Balcony room, and from here forward will always book a Balcony at this Room Class. Our Room attendant was awesome. We loved the Formal Dining and our Servers were exceptional. Food in main dining was good, ...

We went on Freedom OTS for a 3 night cruise to the Bahamas - my first post-COVID cruise. The public spaces on the ship are beautiful. The dining room, Windjammer, sun decks, etc. are all recently renovated and very visually appealing and clean. I am not sure if it was because of COVID capacity, time of year, or the design of the ship, but there was always lots of space in public spaces. 4/5 of the ...

The opposite of relaxing

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Overall the cruise was the opposite of relaxing, the staff gave conflicting and often wrong information about what is included and free and what is not. Salespeople aggressively hounded us so we couldn't relax in the promenade area during the bad weather. Everywhere we went including the restaurants we were aggressively pushed to tip over and above the prepaid gratuities. Even at reduced ...
