Love this Class of Ships

Sail Date: December 15, 2013

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Have been on The Navigator, Mariner, Allure, and now The Freedom.  I love the Promenade.  It is always exciting.  You never feel like you are on a ship.  All the shops, cafe`s, something happening all the time.  The 70`s party was fantastic in the Promenade.  Also the parade!

The entertainment was excellent,  like a Broadway show,  The food was very good,  if I did not like something,  the waiter would bring something different.  The staff was very friendly and very polite.  I was disappointed that they did not separate a smoking side of the Casino.  Too much smoke therefore I did not spend any time there.  The only other negative was boarding and getting off the ship.  The facility for getting on was too small for that many people.  I never had that problem with smaller ships leaving Pt Canaveral.  The line was a very long snake.  Getting off, there were mixed signals which created a long line of people trying to get off the ship.  The baggage situation on the conveyor belt was also not good.  Waited too long and too crowded.

Other than that, I always love Royal Caribbean and especially this class of ships.Love
