bringing "our" Freedom/ Seas back home was again a wonderful experience. In april we sailed her from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona. We said enough TA for this year but we simply could not resist this amazing ship with even more amazing staff. it was our very first cruise ship, is that the reason why we love her so much, not sure is it because there is such a variety of food and ...

My wife and I wanted to visit Barcelona again as we did not spend as much time the last time we were in Spain in the spring of 2015. The Transatlantic Cruise seemed just what we wanted to do as we had heard great reviews about westbound Transatlantic Cruises and Royal Caribbean did not disappoint us. The staff was great and I would recommend a cruise like we took to anyone interested in a ...

This transatlantic cruise was very good. WE had smooth seas and wonderful weather. The air temperature was in the 70's and 80's The food in the dinning room was excellent. All of the ship's crew were wonderful. Providing wonderful service and always willing to help. Our cabin steward, dinning staff and entertainment was fabulous. There were a few negative items. First, we could not get ...

We were six in our group, my sister & her husband & my best friend & her husband. So we wanted to go to Spain, ...

We had two nights in a luxury hotel before being transported to the ship. The hotel was great. It gave us a chance to address the Jet lag after flying from Miami. Took two "Double Decker" bus tours. around the city. Tours were super! Would like to have had two more days in this beautiful city. Air travel on American Airlines was average, but when we got to the airport, we had asked for a ...

I like RCI but not happy with room service charge of $8.00 could see the charge if late in evening even though I am not a room service person I thought the charge was a little heavy. We were only informed of one port offering free transportation to town, and were heading back to the ship as my roommate could not walk the distance to town when we saw a bus offering free transportation to town, if ...

We loved this cruise and ship. It was the first Transatlantic cruise we have taken, and based on our experiences here, we plan to take more similar cruises. Crew members were extremely friendly and helpful. Officers were visible throughout the ship and seemed to welcome discussions with passengers. We were particularly impressed with food quality and selections throughout the ship. Food ...

I like to take a repositioning cruise to relax after a long road trip. If not for the bridge games I would’ve jumped ship. The cabin had a ticking noise all night, the beds were hard, and there was a mildew smell in the hallway the entire cruise. We always eat in the buffet because we like the many options. We are kosher and have more choices on the buffet. The service at the buffet was excellent ...
