Awesome Cruise

Do not be afraid to sail during hurricane season.  The water was the calmest we ever sailed on and the weather was warm and skies sunny.  Royal Caribbean's island, Coco Cay was beautiful.  Lots of beach area and chairs to relax.

The ship personnel did a fantastic job with everything! Thank you again! Overall a great ship and crew. Only problem we had was with the other cruisers during meal time at the buffet, they were only intent on themselves, no common sense for others.

Ship was great. Staff was friendly and ready to assist an way they could. We arrived at all port on time. Service was impeccable.... If you get a chance to me Prince or Anthony two servers on the pool deck they were the bomb. We meet so many wonderful people and made new friends. First cruise and we booked another one next year. Great job royal Caribbean !

Exceeded expectations

Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date:

This was our first cruise for our 1 year anniversary and it was fantastic.  Not only did the cruise ship exceed our expectations but so did the food and service.  The staff was amazing and went overboard, ;), to take great care of us.  We spoke with several couples who have been on other cruise lines and we agree when they say Royal Caribbean is great.

The service was more than exceptional.  Even when something went wrong, the employee took personal responsibility and made things better.

The food was great in the main dining room and breakfast was great.  Fresh everything.  Fresh fruit, not canned.

I can't rave enough about this ship and it's crew and the food.  The only reason I gave it a 4 star was due to the DJ at night and some lack of information for the port that we went to.  They gave information for the ports of call but not enough for the excursions and where to find the places on the port.  The DJ was not very good so my wife did not enjoy dancing.  For me, it was amazing overall.  I would do it again.  Just need to save some money first. :)

the steward, the dining staff and maître de. excellent. nice ports and shows were great. only downside no crafts. if they did have them. person dropped off three boxes of drawing pencils and sheets. then left. 3 passengers grabbed them and went off to their tables. the suite life talk showed up 40 minutes late. also they had kid movies on tv and no movies that were first run without charging 11.99. other than that loved food and service.

The pizza on the Promenade was pretty good as we're some of the sandwiches from the coffee shop. The food in the Windjammer was nearly as good as what was in the dining room and if you prefer to dress more casually then that is the place to be....not as stuffy. There was always a good selection.

Pizza was free at the Pizza place on the promenade. The drinks aren't free, but if you have one of the drink packages it pays off. Tips are included in the purchase of the package. They had a cupcake shop and I bought one of the cupcakes for a little over 2 dollars. It was delicious!

The food in the Starbucks coffee shop is free (although the Starbucks is not) - not many people realized this and there was never a line.
