Just a quick get-a-way

Review for Freedom of the Seas to Bahamas

We were on this ship right before they did the renovations on the pool deck, so we wanted to come back and see what the changes were. Embarkation and Disembarkation were a breeze. This trip by far was the quickest we were ever able to get on a ship, without waiting in long lines. Everyone at the Miami port were very friendly and welcoming. The ship is beautiful. All the staff were ...

The employees in the terminal seemed to still be in a learning curve. It went pretty slow so if you have the RCCL app use it. Also highlight the date, your name, type of test and result ("Negative") on your printed test so they can find it quickly. The ship was only 33% full so no waiting for elevators, tables, bar service or lounge chairs. Most elevators were empty and no long wait. The ...

Well finally was able to get on a ship! So many ducks to line up and things to do, but the day was here. As you know, you must have a negative Covid -19 test no more than 72 hours before the cruise. The means I sailed on a Sunday but received my test on the Thursday before. You DON'T COUNT the day of your sailing. Check to make sure they haven't changed this to 48 hours. Antigen test is ...

We had four cruises cancelled in 2020 and 2021 so this was our first since the Pandemic. Everyone over the age of 12 was vaccinated and I was very impressed with the protocols. We have been on over 25 Royal Caribbean cruises so know the types of activities they usually have on board. The ship was running at 50% capacity so there were no big lines or waiting for elevators. It was a relaxed ...

Right now is the time to jump on the Allure ! It has been sailing less than 1/2 full. The service has been perfect. All safety protocols followed. The shows and activities in full swing and amazing as ever. We were on this ship 10 yrs ago and it is so clean it literally looks brand new. Guest to staff ratio is in your favor, not waiting for anything like chairs, bars, etc. we have 2300 on ...

A perfect 6 days aboard the beautiful Odyssey of the Seas, we could have not asked for more except a back to back voyage on the next sailing! Embarkation was a breeze, please make sure you have your names exactly as they appear on your passport. We traveled with a guest who had a space in between parts of his last name and it needed to be corrected which was handled quickly, yet delayed us a ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary (Cozumel, Honduras, Costa Maya and Coco Cay). We had no idea what a beautiful ship we would be on. We did the ROyal up, with a minimum bid and "won" a suite. It was incredible. Amazing bathroom and balcony. The "living room" was tiny adn there were only two of us so we really didnt use it. The Lavazza coffee machine was amazing. (like amazing!) The ...

I traveled with over 70 people through Card Player Cruises. Such a perfect group and wonderful fun trip. Food was improved over pre-covid cruises on RCCL, especially in the buffet where they now serve you so no more hands on everything. Cabin was wonderful. Service was friendly but professional. Fast boarding and departure. I wanted to dispute something in another review, that one ...

Friends asked us to join them on this cruise pre-covid. Was not sure it would even happen with all the other cruise cancellations however it went off without a hitch as they say and Royal Caribbean did not fail in making passengers feel safe during the 7 day trip. Embarkation was a breeze but had to show documentation 4 times before being allowed on board. All employees were super friendly ...
