Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 16, 2012
Ship: Freedom of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

This is our tenth cruise (fifth with RC). The ship was nice and the crew was fine, but not what we are used to. The crew seemed to be going through the motions. The children's program consisted of a few staff members that entertained our three kids in the same room the entire cruise. I found it inadequate, but our kids seemed to like it (10, 10, & 8). All and all, the cruise was fine for the price, but our next cruise will not be on the Freedom.

Food and Dining

Menu was hit or miss. Lunch was actually better than dinner many days.
