Disappointing cruise

In response to review, DWB says ...

Many lines have stopped the chocolate at night. I cruised Carnival last March and got chocolate, this March none. RCI used to give chocolate. Also the TV is going down hill especially the movies. I bet Holland America and Celebrity cost more money.

Thank you for leaving your review. I've not been on Freedom and probably won't because I prefer the smaller class ships. When I needed something in my stateroom, I asked the assigned attendant rather than wait on the chance it is going to be delivered.  When I got no result after asking once, I called Guest Services and specifically say "I asked my stateroom attendant for X yesterday but still don't have it, could someone else bring it?"  That lit a fire because the request went through the supervisor.  I've only had to do that once in over 15 years of cruising. After that, no problems.

HAL and Celebrity are premium lines,  RCI is a regular cruise line.  I can tell the difference between them.   When I did 2 European cruises we had on demand movies in the cabin that were in English,  regular TV was only a couple English channels that were mostly News.

Most lines have stopped the chocolate on the pillow at night.   Funny that little thing that is only a few cents a day has been cut.   When you look at big picture thought,  one chocolate per guest per day on each ship is actually a lot of money.

Cruising on the basic lines is not what it used to be but it is better then it is becoming.
