These two couples just returned from a Western Caribbean sailing on board Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas.

Thank you so much for the great photos Jordan, Paula, Mike and Lory.  And an extra Thank You to Jordan for the review!

Hey Denise!   Besides the fact that it rained 6 out of 7 days, we had a great time. Here are some photos...I even took one with your yellow bag!   

Here's a recap:

Food - Evening meals were excellent and the dining room service way exceeded our expectations.  The staff was fantastic.  I'd give the evening dining experience a 10 out of 10 for sure.  Breakfast and lunch in the Windjammer (buffet) were average, maybe 6 out of 10.   Food quality was OK, but not a lot of variety from day to day and it was very crowded.  I called it the "feeding frenzy"! 

Activities - Obviously lots to do every day.  Outside of the normal boat activities, we did 2 excursions - the first one was done directly thru the ship and it was the River Raft in Jamaica.  It was pretty bad...very short and we spent way more time waiting around than actually rafting.  The raft itself barely lasted 30 minutes, and hardly any rapids.   I would definitely NOT recommend that to anyone.   I give it a 1 out of 10.  

The next one we did on our own - ATV's in Cozmel.  Highly recommended, it was a blast. I'd give it a 9 out of 10, just because it could have lasted a bit longer.  We rode for maybe an hour.  It even included a tequila tasting.  Staff was very friendly. 

The cruise director was awesome, very energetic and great personality.  Mike & Lory have been on about 8 cruises and they said he was the best cruise director they've ever had by far.

Entertainment - the shows were really good.  In comparison, way better talent than we've ever seen at an all-inclusive resort.  The singers, dancers, and musicians were top notch and could have performed anywhere.  The costumes/wardrobes and stage sets were excellent.  Overall, extremely impressive and far exceeded our expectations.  10 out of 10 

State Rooms - Excellent!  Way exceeded what we were expecting.  Plenty of space!  Having an outside balcony is the only way to go, I can't even imagine getting an inside room. 


Cleanliness - Also excellent.  The whole boat was very well maintained and clean.  They had hand sanitizer stations everywhere.  I even did a galley tour and the kitchens were spotless.  And I'm a former restaurant guy, so that's a big deal to me! 

The week went way too fast, of course.  We still like the all-inclusives better, but there will definitely be another cruise sometime in our future.  It was very impressive, and I love being on the water.  Thanks again for everything, and for getting us rooms next to each other, that was fun also.  JK

Cruising is a wonderful way to see many destinations each day as you arrive in a new port of call.  A great way to see the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, Asia, Panama Canal, Central and South America and so much more!
