  3. Freedom of the Seas
We had a fabulous time at each port of call whether we arranged a tour or explored by ourselves. We used Italy tours as the cruise tours are overpriced. The scenery was breath-taking and we loved each place we visited. We did wish we had gone to Pisa and Florence although Cinq de Terri was beautiful. Rome was incredible! Nearly got pick pocketed in Nice so be careful. They work in twos or threes to distract you. The ship was clean and mostly friendly but the food was not up to par. No lobster on formal night and a strange menu at times. They had a large group (1000) of Amway people from Thailand which was a downside to our cruising experience due to their pushiness. The evening entertainment was mostly very good but very little live music in lounges or fun activities in the evenings. A spacious cabin for an interior room. Took way too long for embarking and getting luggage for disembarking was a little crazy. Internet and automatic gratuities were expensive. Not as good service as other cruises we've been on including another Royal Caribbean cruise.

Great ports of call; disappointed in cruise
