April 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Freedom of the Seas
Royal carribean Freedom of the seas.
We enjoyed our cruise to the western caribbean onboard frredom of the seas from port canneveral from april 12-19.However,I can't say that royal caribbean has anything better to offer as compred to Carnival.(we had done 2 previous cruises on carnival)For one ,we really were disappointed that there was NO food on the pool decks during sea days or any days.We had to go inside to the Windjammer to get food for lunch & the times it was available were limited.On Carnival there were food stations available at all times being freshly prepared all day on the Lido deck.Also I must say that the formal dining experience was much better on Carnival,in that the food was presented in a much more timely fashion at our evening meals &in a much prettier display.Our experience on RC was not as pleasant in that we had to wait around 45 min to 1 hour between getting our appetizer & our main course & our waiter was not very accomadating.The whole staff on Carnival seemed happier & more willing to serve their guests.Our ocean view room seemed more spacious on RC,but for the total experience & cost I must say I would tend to choose Carnival for future cruise experiences. I was very disappointed that I was not able to participate in RC's survey simply due to fact that I waited one week to complete it.
