Freedom of the Seas

September 2017 - Freedom of the Seas to Europe - Mediterranean

Absolutely incredible trip, but no longer a fan of RCI.

Europe is incredible and we are already looking to book a cruise out of Venice. However, I will probably not sail with RCI again. They seem to be going way down hill where as the other mainstream cruise lines are improving. The last Carnival and NCL cruise we went on were much better experiences on board.

Carnival Breeze

July 2013 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean

Carnival's Best

First of I am married with 2 15 year old daughters. We have sailed 9 times as a family and I can honestly say we had as much fun on this ship as the Oasis and Allure of the Seas. Sure the ship was not as big and didn't have the huge Royal Promenade which is great, but we had just as much fun if not more. I had read a lot of bad reviews about lines and too many kids, but we went on a sold out ship in the middle of the summer and the lines were fine. We never (ever) waited in a line for Guy's like people have said and we had no problems getting in for the comedians. The big production shows are no where near the caliber of RCCL, but the individual entertainers (solo pub singers, jugglers, comedians) were much better. Also, the lunch time food variety was way better than RCCL. We also had a lot better ports than the Allure or Oasis will ever have. In my opinion Carnival does not deserve the bad rep it gets and is a much better value than RCCL. (this cruise was $3,500 less than RCCL for the same time plus it was 8 days) I do however like RCCL, but I am not loyal to either and will continue to sail on both.

mvh8898's Tips

Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France - Both Villefranche and Nice were great. Very easy and inexpensive to take the bus to Nice, but of course, the ship would not tell you that. They want to sell you something.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Had a great private driver for 6 of us, but this was my least favorite port. Not what I expected. It seemed dirty and a little disappointing. I found it tacky to walk out of the Vatican into a McDonalds or a lingerie store.
