. Went knowing that we would not be getting off the ship and enjoyed the trivia and shows on board. Spent a lot of time in our cabin which was comfortable and incredibly quiet. Food was very good as was the service. Loved the Starbucks available with our sofa package
Nice clean ship, loved the big hot tubs, food was great, service was great. 70's dance party was a lot of fun. the singer in the Scooner bar was outstanding. The bartenders were very good and made very good lava flows.
This was a great cruise as it was 8 days and not the usual 7. We had 3 seas days which helped prepare us for the upcoming busy Christmas season. The u[scale restaurants on ship are well worth the little extra money. Sabor, the Mexican restaurant, has guacamole made to your liking tableside.
From.boarding to departure trip was phenomenal. The ports were all amazing and the Freedom staff is hands down best ever! We were so sad it ended!!! I can't wait to go back and actually booked the Anthem of The seas for next year!!!
Excellent and extremely friendly service! Fantastic servers and bar tenders! Highly entertaining shows! Cruising with Royal Caribbean is the most economical and really fun way to spend time with family and friends! Next time, Quantum!
The best part of the cruise was the Cruising with the King Elvis entertainment (Art Kistler and the EP Boulevard Show Band)!
Our group coordinator was very helpful - especially when disembarking the ship.
Digianne Hebron in "My Time Dining" was amazing! She was friendly, helpful, and very efficient and professional in arranging dining for our group of 19!!
- Making the casino smoke-free!
- The picture taking when boarding the ship (NOT the pictures taken at check-in for our sea pass cards) was terrible and misrepresented. Most of us when boarding the ship have had a stressful day, and just want to get on the ship - we're not in a "picture taking" mode (and would not buy pictures of ourselves looking like that anyway!). As we boarded the ship, photographers literally GRABBED our sea pass cards out of our hands and said that we had to have our picture taken in order to "authorize [our] cards." This was an outright LIE!!! They were rude and would not give our cards back until we stood for a picture. As Diamond-Diamond Plus members of Royal Caribbean, we did not appreciate being treated this way - OR for the first-time cruisers that were traveling with us to be treated like this before even boarding the ship!!!
The cruise director is great. This trip wasn't as bad as past trips but still think you shouldn't be able to go out at 7am and block off poolside chairs so you can come down after lunch. Buffet food wasn't the greatest, runny eggs most days....good thing is you always have so many other options, bad thing....don't go during the breakfast rush...hard to find seating, but again there's other options. Balcony rooms are the best, and as always our dining room staff was perfect!
Wow! After having cruised on Freedom of the Seas many times, I knew I would enjoy this cruise! This was my first HALLOWEEN cruise and it did NOT disappoint! The Halloween costume party/parade was definitely a highlight of the cruise. However, the most impressive part of this cruise was the Captain choosing to take us to Grand Cayman instead of Cococay! He made this decision when he found out that Cococay was covered with severe weather. We had picture-perfect weather throughout our voyage! Furthermore, we had outstanding service while on board the Freedom! I always say the crew makes the cruise! I'll definitely miss the convenience of cruising out of Port Canaveral on the Freedom! She will be sailing out of Ft. Lauderdale, moving forward.
My favorite part of the cruise was just about everything. Excellent customer service. Dinning room and the wonderful service we received was second to none! The Internet connection was not the best and a little pricy for me. Yes, I would most definitely recommend this cruise line to any and everyone!
The pizza on the Promenade was pretty good as we're some of the sandwiches from the coffee shop. The food in the Windjammer was nearly as good as what was in the dining room and if you prefer to dress more casually then that is the place to be....not as stuffy. There was always a good selection.
Pizza was free at the Pizza place on the promenade. The drinks aren't free, but if you have one of the drink packages it pays off. Tips are included in the purchase of the package. They had a cupcake shop and I bought one of the cupcakes for a little over 2 dollars. It was delicious!
