Usually I go on an annual cruise with my sister. I stayed on the boat for one of our stops, as I am not a fan of this port and enjoyed some me time sunbathing.food and wait service were very good. the selection was great and service was excellent.the boat may be a little outdated but improvements have been made since the last time I was on it 9/16/13. a small ship may not have all the amenities as a larger ship, but it is still a lot of fun. my complaints are minor.the drink service in the casino was very limited, first cruise where I wasn't asked if I wanted a drink at all. toilet in room did not flush well during the cruise. prefer the gift shops on the larger boats

shows ere very good and the cruise director was one of the best I ever encountered. can't say enough about my steward, Eric!

Overall, we had a fantastic time on our vacation! It was our first time cruising in many years and our first time on Royal Caribbean. We chose this ship because of the great itinerary that allowed us the opportunity to see a lot of places. I was traveling with my parents and younger brother and sister (age17– 11). I am going to start with overall comments about the ship and then a VERY detailed day-by-day breakdown, for those interested. I apologize in advance for the length, but I found reviews so helpful when doing our planning that I did not want to leave any details out in case they might help someone else


You can definitely tell this is an older ship. It’s very dated and tired. However, the staff did a great job of keeping it clean. The staff was very dedicated and friendly. They were far and away the best part of the ship. We had an excellent experience with our dining room staff and cabin steward.

I went on a royal cAribbean cruise this January and it was amazing! We went on the smallest ship The Empress of the Seas. The ship was small but there was still a lot to do and we never felt bored! The staff was incredibly attentive and personal. They remembered us and made us feel welcome. The food was great. I liked almost everything we tried and they even had us try things that we were unsure about! The photo studio was knowledgeable about cameras and go pros when we purchased one. My only complaints would be that there was a lifeboat blocking our entire window of our "ocean view" suite. We paid extra to see and we were unable to. I would also make the alcohol less expensive

We cruised in April of this year and it was spectacular! We left out of Miami Florida and cruised through the Bahamas on Enchantment of the Seas. Enchantment is one of the older cruise ships in the fleet. It doesn't have a ton of onboard activities but we were at port every day so we didn't even need it! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The food was AMAZING!!! For every meal we felt like we were eating like royalty, especially for the steak dinners and such! We did the My Time dining so we could relax and then go eat whenever worked for us. We never had to wait before being seated! We had an inside stateroom that was plenty big for the 2 of us. Getting on and off the ship, including sail day, was super easy and not stressful in the slightest! We booked through Costco Travel and there were no hiccups at all in the process. We absolutely loved our cruise and can't wait to book with RC again!

I absolutely love Royal Caribbean they are so much fun to be on and the food is fantastic. The service great and just running about the ships exploring is just fantastic. I'm going to be going on another cruise with them in December I just can't wait!!!! I haven't been on a cruise with Royal Caribbean since 2010. I can't wait to go on again and have a blast, I love it that they have food that is free so you don't have to worry about any extra expenses if you don't want to. You can go to restaurants that you pay extra money at for more of food variety. They also have excursions but it cost extra to go on but even if you don't it's still wonderful experienced to be on. You literally don't need to spend any extra money but if you do it makes it even better I definitely think everybody needs to try it at least once but then when you try it you'll probably be hooked like I am and my family!!!

The food was good! The had restaurants for reservations if you don't want to eat regular buffet diner food. The stops we picked we're amazing! So it's important to look at the stops they go to and do some research on that. I enjoyed the events they had every night for the family and passengers, they kept people in schedule even though that's the hardest thing to be in on a vacation it was still a good choice! I'll show you guys pictures and how the room was compact but good enough for a trip. They also took us on their private island which had bomb island food with performance as we ate.

I love this cruise line! They pay such great attention to detail and learn your likes and dislikes in such a short period of time. I've cruised with them twice and I absolutely love it. I've also cruised with Disney before and I feel Royal is pretty close in comparison, though much less expensive and not as much for kids. If you have young children, I wouldn't recommend Royal, as I feel it is more geared towards adults. The food is outstanding and there are always fun activities and excursions available, even on a short 3-day cruise. I would also recommend travel on their larger ships because you don't feel as much swaying when the seas are rough.

The Freedom of the Seas is one of this lines ships that travels throughout the Eastern Carribean. We booked an 8 day cruise which we enjoyed immensely.
We found the Freedom of the Seas to be a beautiful ship, filled with great wonderful activities and amenities for anyone.. The crew were very friendly and thoughtful particularlyThe wait staff at meals. They were also all very informativeabout the destinations would be arriving at.
Our itinerary includes St Kitts , St Maarten, San Juan and the private island of Labadee. We spent 2 days cruising on the open water and were able to enjoy the many on board activities. I was able to try the climbing wall and visited The gym twice. The entertainment was the best we've ever experienced on a cruise and the food was exceptional.
Overall, we thought that this cruise was a fabulous one and we could highly recommend it.

I've always wanted to go on one of these trips, for a first timer would you recommend going with a small or big group?
