7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 12, 2015
Ship: Freedom of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8530
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The staff aboard the Freedom of the Seas were just great.   Everyone went out of there way to make us feel welcome.   From the initial dining experience on the first night until the day we departed, everyone we came into contact with was pleasant and friendly.   The activities about the ship were great; having the cruise director and other on TV to share what would be happening was a plus.   Getting the daily flyer really helped us plan our time each day.   

I had to work while on the cruise and the Internet was operational 95% of the time.  Paying for the Internet for the entire cruise was a plus too.   

If anything, I would have liked to have gotten more information on gratuities and beverage packages before the cruise.    This way I could have paid more of my fees up front.   

Overall a great experience

The village was a bit overboard with vendors being very pushy. The rest of the island was great.

Enjoyed our tour of the island and would recommend Biggs restaurant instead of Margiritaville.

Enjoyed the shopping near the dock. Would not take a tour again. Would recommend renting a jeep or scooter to see the island and get around.
