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. But first things first, We cruised October 2nd with the threat of Hurricane Matthew looming. Even with this embarkation went very smoothly. All aboard was pushed up so we could leave ...

We just came back from our 7 night (Labadee, Falmouth, Georgetown and Cozumel)cruise on the Freedom of the seas and we finally understand why there are more frequent negative reviews about this ship. We are loyal to Royal Caribbean, however, this was our 6th (13th overall) and probably final time on the Freedom. Staff: Room Attendant was friendly and competent, however, he was not as ...

I chose this cruise as an end of summer treat for myself and my three kids (ages 6, 11 & 14). The Good 1. Our room attendant was awesome if I could have directly all of the compulsory tips directly to him I would. 2. The shore excursions were a blast. We did the snorkeling in St Thomas and Orient Beach in St Maarten. The Bad 1. Royal Carribbean clearly has confused "selling" for ...

The good first: cabin was roomy and very clean and the bed comfortable. Guest services desk very helpful. Embarked and disembarked smoothly. The food was very good. We took a behind the scenes tour of the galley and I was impressed by the cleanliness of the kitchen and the quality of the food prep. The bad: with the exception of our server in the dining room and our room steward, service on the ...

Wild Children Booze Cruise

Kids ran wild all over the ship. It seemed more like a booze cruise than an RCL ship usually does. Getting a meal has to be planned as the buffet and dining room have very limited hours. The Buffet should have a bit more organization as people just dart in and out and impossible to go in an orderly fashion. We gave up and spent afternoons in our balcony room and ordered room service. The wait ...

Disappointing Honeymoon on Freedom of the Seas

Full disclosure: My husband & I recently got back from our honeymoon on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas. We've been on one other cruise before, Carnival's Fantasy, and had a blast. We heard great things about RCI, so we started this vacation with high expectations & were severely disappointed. You only get one honeymoon (hopefully), so we wanted it to be special. Potential young ...

The ship was the most boring cruise ship I've been on. The activities were repetitive and not very many activities for young adult (21-30). The island of Haiti was very disappointing, didn't get to experience real Haitian culture like on the other islands. This is not my first cruise and will not be my last but I will never vacation with Royal Caribbean again. It was my birthday and I told them ...

Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas Review First impressions: The Freedom of the Seas is a large, 155,000 ton, cruise chip that carries over 4500 passengers and 1500 crew members. It is a clean, well maintained ship. Its facilities are good. I especially liked the gym facility. My first day experience left a negative impression that got reinforced throughout the cruise. Hawkers ...

Let me preface by saying that we go on cruises every year, the last 6 with our two small girls aged 4 and 6. First time with Royal Caribbean and the last. First the good. The ship itself (the main areas ie promenade) is very nice and quasi clean. They have a rock climbing wall and simulated surfing. Some of the nightly shows were good to very good (6 to 7.5/10). That’s about all the good things ...
