Freedom of the Seas

October 2013 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Royal Caribbean is not what it used to be.....

This was our fifth cruise.  The first two were on Royal Caribbean, the third was a Carnival cruise, followed by a Disney cruise.  When we cruised Carnival we thought it was definitely a "step down" from what we had experienced on Royal.  When we went on our Disney cruise, the second sailing of the Fantasy -- we were "wowed" -- Disney, as usual, spared no minute detail.  When it came time to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary we decided to go back to Royal -- as our experience was superior to Carnival, and we weren't traveling with our Grandson, so no need to be on a Disney cruise.....  We couldn't have been more wrong.....  The little "nice-ities" that we were looking for on Royal were gone -- no toiletries, no bathrobes in our balcony cabin and they seemed to "nickel and dime" us to death --- even charging extra for fresh-squeezed orange juice!  A watered down version of "Tang" was available free of charge.  The ship, of course, was beautiful and the waiters, bartenders, and cabin stewards were wonderful --- as was our cruise director and activities director, Richard and Katy ---- they were amazing and really saved our cruise from being very hum-drum!!!!  I'm not sure who we will cruise with next time, but it will probably not be Royal, I'm sorry to say......
