Freedom of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western

My husband and I chose to cruise for our honeymoon, as neither of us had cruised before. We are so glad we chose Royal to be our first. All of the staff was pleasant and helpful, the food was great, and there were unique adult activities each night. The adults only pool was a huge plus!
We chose the My Time dining option and ending up requesting the same waiter each night we went to the dining room because we loved him and the service so much. Our room and all public restrooms stayed clean and well maintained.
The only negatives we can think of - one of our ports was Grand Cayman where you have to take a smaller boat into port. The process was a little aggregating and time consuming, as we didn't realize we would have to wait so long. All other ports were smooth and simple for us though. The other negetive is how often and "in-your-face" they are about the sales on board. They are constantly trying to sell things in the main area of the boat. I heard that's any cruise though.
Overall great first experience!

Make your dinner reservations early each night, the food is so worth it. Bring fun outfits for things like 80's night and Hawaian shirt night.
