Sail Date: Apr 2016
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Sailed to Rotterdam on an extra cruise that was added as the ship was ready early. Myself and 5 friends booked 3 Balcony cabins.From the moment we arrived at Southampton until we left our ship 3 days later everything was such a wonderful experience.I could not believe how quick we got on this beautiful ship,I think it must of taken about 15 minutes in total.There was a bit of confusion over our eating arrangements,as I have never sailed with Royal Caribbean before I was told on the telephoned that if we chose the option of freedom dining we could eat at any time.

However this was not the case,when we arrived at our restaurant at 6.25 and was asked what room number we had booked it under we we quite confused as we were told this was not needed,we were offered dining at 8.30 which was too late for us as we had been traveling since 6am in the morning,we were found a space in Silk which was very nice,when booking next time I will make sure I will book before I board ship,I think the freedom dining is rather confusing,as with P and O freedom means freedom you can dine anytime between 6.30 and 8.30.

Apart from that and the wine being very expensive I would recommend this ship,excellent staff,wonderful service,very clean,lots to do for adults and children alike.
