My family and I have been wanting to try Royal Caribbean cruise line but we were not as impressed as we thought we would be.  The ship Freedom of the Seas was just okay and the staff overall was mediocre.  We enjoyed the ports of call more than being on the ship. In the past we have cruised with Disney Cruise Line twice, Carnival Dream & Breeze. My teenage kids actually told me that the Carnival Dream and Breeze was so much better & said please do not book RC again. We ate dinner at all the private restaurants each night except one.  We were not a fan of the food at the buffets.  The spa team members were just okay as well.  Nothing impressive for the money.
