Great ship for first-time cruisers.

Overcrowded

We chose this boat to compare a medium sized boat to the smaller ones we usually take, as well as because this was a longer cruise so we thought we could do more. The food was ok, but not fantastic but that is ...

Best view of the moon + Great room service

The highlight: Best view of the moon you can have ever is when you are in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night. Go check that out if you're going on a cruise. The ship itself was massive, with LOTS ...

Wonderful family cruise

Booked a fly/stay/cruise with the port so no hassles making the boarding. Big crowd buying lanyards and they were blocking the rest of us. We had an inside cabin overlooking the Promenade and it got a bit noisy ...

Great activities, too crowded, food okay

We went on the Freedom in the summer of 2012 to the Western Caribbean. The food and service were great. We felt that the service and food were not as good for the Eastern Caribbean trip in 2016. It was Easter week, ...

I wanted to love you... but

The reviews on this ship were very high so I wanted to give Royal another try. Unfortunately the service on this ship was not as good as we have had on other ships. The staff genuinely seemed upset all the time. ...
