This was our 9th cruise, but our first on RCCL. our daughter and son in law joined us , it was the first cruise for them ever. We used the Go Port Canaveral service and it went flawlessly "Fly Snooze Cruise" Highly recommend to anyone cruising out of Port Canaveral. The ship was very nice our cabin was spacious and the balcony seemed to be much larger than most other ships we have been on. We were on deck 9 and it was a nice quiet deck being between decks with other cabins is a plus. Our room steward was fantastic and so very helpful! Lisbeth was the best!! Cuddy the cruise director was fun and kept things upbeat during the cruise. Food was good overall, although the buffet area was always so full, you have to walk around for quite sometime before you could find a place to sit down. The other thing that was very different from other lines was the drinks are not accessible if the buffet is closed! This was rather disappointing. You had to go to the Promenade to get drinks. Also the drinks were all very watered down, everything orange juice, apple-juice and lemonade were all served over ice which seemed to already be melted a bit before the juice was added. Not much flavor left. Ports were good and disembarkation was very smooth as was getting back on the ship. Entertainment was really good! Two different comedians, an Eagles cover band "The Long Run" and the Freedom singers and dancers did a fabulous job in the theatre and the Ice skater put on an excellent show also!! All in all a good cruise the tiny thing that went wrong were corrected and not worth a mention RCCL was good to us!
