April 2017 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
This cruise did not live up to expectations resulting from our prior cruises with Royal Caribbean. Very crowded due to lots of children with adults, which would not be a problem except staff could not handle volume. Dinner in dining room took a as much as 3 hours. Drink package did not have enough variety and quality of wines (especially when compared with 2 NCL cruises we took in Jan & Feb). That said, we still thought specialty restaurants were great, wait staff on pool decks was very attentive and fast. Our room was well cared for by our steward. Very organized embarkation, disembarkation, tendering, and docking at ports.
