Our First Cruise

Sail Date: April 18, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise. Overall we were very impressed with the customer service and the variety of activities on the ship. We chose to pre-pay for excursions but found out that it isn't absolutley necessary to do ahead of time. There was a nice variety of families and couples on the ship. The ship had designated areas and shows for adults, teens, and children. We would definately sail on this ship again.

Pros: The customer service by the staff of Royal Caribbean was excelllent!!

Cons: Be prepared for the extra costs. They will try to get you to buy drinks, jewerly, etc...

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
We chose to do "My time dinning" and that worked well for us.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room had a balcony and it was well worth the extra money.
Service and Staff
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
You have many options here. Be aware of the agressive shop owners though
Don't Miss: Dundee Falls
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
This was a nice place to sit and relax on the beach.
Cozumel, Mexico
We tried the Jungle buggy ride. It was more a ride on the coast but very enjoyable. This port had many activites to chose from.
Don't Miss: Mayan Ruins
George Town, Grand Cayman
We took a bus tour that stopped at a "pirate cave" It reminded me of a tourist attraction from the 70"s.
