Best cruise we've taken !

Sail Date: October 14, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Very clean (and getting cleaner with all the hand sanatizer going around!), very fast boarding in Port Canaveral (we were in our cabin 45 minutes from when we were dropped off!)...same with unboarding when the cruise was over! The new menu change in the dinning room was really great, could not find fault with anything we ordered. Entertainment was terrific, best we've ever had on a cruise...C/D was a real hit and kept everything moving and very funny! Adult pool is a great idea that RCCL should expand and make bigger! Also, combine the wine bar and B&B pub into side by side areas with a common entrance...will help both? The pub was full at all times during the evening...great place to have a pint and sing along...and meet all the Brit's! Overall...the BEST cruise we have been on and a very nice way to celebrate our 25th....we WILL be back on RCCL !!

Pros: Adult pool\, new menu in dining room (delicious!)\, fast boarding/unboarding\, entertainment (top notch!)

Cons: About the ship - not much to complain about\, Labadee (boring!)\, Jamaica (got attacked everywhere!)

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
New menu change was a hit\, delicious!
Cabin / Stateroom
Whatever mattress they have\, it was very wife and I woke up every morning rested and NO backache! (Needless to say the shower could be bigger\, but if you've cruised before you deal with it.)
Service and Staff
Our cabin attendant was great\, very attentive but not intrusive. Always keept the room neat and clean\, several times per day. Both our head waiter and assistant were terrific...did everything we asked of them and more! As for the rest of the staff\, never met one that did not say hello\, smile or say \"good morning\"!
Best quality from the Ice show to the main production numbers to the Rock Britannia show in the Promenade - terrific! The whole entertainment package was masterfully overseen by the C/D.....KEEP THIS GUY !!!
