Freedom of the Seas | Jun 07, 2015 | 7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)

Sail Date: June 07, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

First cruise on Royal Caribbean.  Beautiful ship, very clean!  We loved the captain. He seems very down to earth and was easy to understand.  We enjoyed the tour of the bridge and the galley (on ship TV).  Getting on and off the ship was the smoothest we have experienced with any cruise line so far.  The food was good and plentiful.  We did the MY TIME dining and it worked out great for us.  We reserved on-line before sailing and chose 5:30 each night.  The staff was terrific, no complaints!  We will choose Royal Caribbean againHappy

Destinations and Excursions
Enjoyed the private island, Labadee. Very nicely done. Did not take any excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Perfect location, near elevators. One floor down to dining room. This was our first time having room with a balcony and we will never go back! It was so nice.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Did not use as a "port" since we live in Florida.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Loved that all the services were free or use sea pass. Tip, remind passengers that they should have cash for tips. We thought we wouldn't need any cash and my husband had to go back to ship to get it to tip the gentlemen who set up our beach chairs.
Falmouth, Jamaica
The port itself is beautiful. We tried to shop at the Craft tent where the locals were selling their items. Looked like the stores in the buildings were owned by non-jamacians. It is clearly a country that could use the revenue and we would prefer to help the native people.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Love the tender ports! You get a free boat ride. Not much to do here but shop or take excursions.
Cozumel, Mexico
LOVE COZUMEL! Best shopping of all the ports
