7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 30, 2006
Ship: Freedom of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Enjoyed Freedom of the Seas, the ship has so much to do for all ages. Having the Royal Promenade with shops and restaurants was great. The food in the Dining Room and in the Windjammer has definitley gone downhill. Having cruised on RCCL for over 10 years, I have to say I was greatly disappointed. The variety is there, but the overall quality sucks. Need to improve the menus, make meals less heavy and use better quality salads, fruits and meats. The housekeeping staff was not very friendly and the entire week our bedspread that was already dirty upon our arrival was never changed.
