February 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Freedom of the Seas
My husband and I have been on several cruises now-up till this one on Carnival. We believed that RCL would be a step up in the cruising world, but we were disappointed to learn it really wasn't. The people were good-but they were on Carnival as well (the cruise director was awesome). We thought Carnival had more shows (higher quality) and more movies-just more activities than RCL.
The food was good, but Carnivals was better. The last night in dining room was a big disappointment-they even had turkey as an entree! Where's the fish and other goodies that you don't make at home. Johnny Rockets was good but we were charged extra fee by waiter who suggested milk shake to go...we had no idea that would make it $4.50 extra on top of the flat rate all you want meal plan!~ Desserts were OK but better on Carnival (except for carrot cake-wished they had that 7 nights!)
The ship is lovely-we like the Promenade and the two food places there.
We are going to try Holland America, but so far will go back to Carnival to save money and get a better overall cruise.
