Nice but missing a few things from other cruises and push the drink packages too much which are not needed...

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2014


Nice ship with lots of extras available but the basics are missing if you are in an inside cabin.... Most ships I have been on I get upgraded once I am on the ship to a room with a view but not this one... This room is so tight you can not even walk around the bed ... You have to sit on the bed and try to swing your legs over... The shower is so tight you can't even bend over to pick up the shampoo...but in the room there is plenty of storage.. But you do not get that nice fluffy robe with your room....

    If you go to grand caymen do not go on one of the excursions ...The people who run these are very rude and if you are not the right color the treat you even worse....We were dropped at a beach and not told how to get back ...only that we should make sure we should get back early...we were trying to do what we were told and when we tried to get back we were told to take a taxie back ( but there were no taxies available) and we were still not told what we were to do to get  back( as is which bus we were to take to get back to the ship) we waited an hour for a bus to get back to the ship...we were not the only ones ... Almost everyone on our bus back was extremely upset... So anyway don't do this...

    I also fell on there slippery floors ... So be very careful when you walk....they did take care of me... 

     Also they really push the drink package but it is really not necessary unless you drink a lot ...

A glorious week with my honey

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2014


It had been one long year and a half since we sailed on a vacation cruise....we lost two family members in that time and we needed to regroup....we needed to relax and enjoy each others company, as only a cruise can offer....It was a perfect week, the food the weather, and the ship were all perfect....we  sailed on the Freedom four or five times before so we knew we could count on RCCL.

By Far, Our Best Cruise Yet......

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2014


Although this is only our 5th cruise, I have to say we were most impressed with this ship. We had more fun on this boat than we've had before. Much of this experience was in direct relation to the service we received, from our room steward,Ketut, Roberto, April & Edwardo in the dining room, Raphael in the Champagne Bar & "Brat" in the Bolero Bar. We will definitely take this ship again, not really caring where we go....although it has to be warm. It was a great 7 days, that I totally wish we could "do over".

Happiness is a retirement cruise on Freedom of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2014


From day one of planning to the actual cruise I was excited. My cruise planner (Jenny Fenner) is an awesome planner  and made everything so easy. I was a little nervous since this was my first full week cruise.

 

Royal Caribbean and the Crew on Freedom of the Seas made everything a total delight. Our room steward spoiled us rotten. Our dining experiences in Isaac's was wonderful and oh my the food was delicious! A relaxing adventureous time, now I am dreaming of my next RCL cruise!

Poor!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2014


SadWe have been on a total of four cruises and this was our first on Royal Caribbean. We were not pleased with the kids program!! Our kids have loved cruises in the past because of all the activities they were able to experience. This cruise they were so unhappy that they have stated they will not ever go back on another Royal Caribbean cruise ever again. We always travel with multiple families of 20 or more and they all said they were unhappy as well. Royal Caribbean just lost a lot of business from our families!!

Fabulous!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2014


This was our first time on a cruise and we are very pleased with the cruise ship size; the restaurant, the dining room and the promenade staff were always smiling and helpful; the shore excursions/shopping. Lots of entertainment.  Our stateroom attendant was very pleasant and provided great service (spoke 5 languages including french).

Freedom of the Seas 7nt Western Carribean Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2014


We had a great time!  The ship was fantastic and we lucked out on the weather.  The food was pretty good, however, being vegetarian we had more limited options.  I found out half-way through that you can order veggie burgers in the Windjammer Cafe by request and also grilled cheese.  They were both very good.  The balcony room was spacious enough and we loved sitting on the balcony watchnig the entry and exit of each port.  The shows were very good.  Our favorite was the magic show.  The ship was overall very clean and everyone was there to make sure we had a great experience.  I would definately recommend this ship.  

 

Our destinations included: Labadee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica; Grand Caymen; and Cozumel, Mexico.  We enjoyed each one.  

 

In Haiti, we lounged on Nellie's Beach where is wasn't too crowded and the water and wind were calm.  I did the snorkel excurion while my wife soaked up the sun.  The water and guides were great but there really wasn't too much to see.

 

In Jamaica we did the Dunn's River falls and although it was crowded we had a blast.  We booked through the cruise line and our guide on the bus said to come straight back to the bus instead of spending time in the village at the top. They told us not tell anyone our name or they would carve it in a keepsake and expect you to buy it.  We did as told and told them no thanks and promptly made our way back to the bus. They brought video cd's straight to the bus if you wanted to purchase them.

 

In Grand Caymen we did the Sting Ray City and snorkel tour.  This was by far our favorite part of the cruise.  The sting rays were all over and they gave you food to feed them.  We both felt we had enough time with them and then we were off to snorkel in the crystal clear water.  I had to delete so many pictures of the teal water when I got back since apparently I kept taking them over and over in disbelief.  There was much more to see on this snorkel trip than in Haiti.

 

Next up was Cozumel.  I went on the 2 tank scuba dive while my wife who had been there before stayed on the boat to relax.  The dive was great and the water just as clear.  Visibility was around 70 feet as we sat on the bottom and could look up and see the boat plain as day.  Again lots of fish to see and neat things around the reef.

 

Overall we loved the ship, the food, the shows, and excursions.  We would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a Carribean get away.

Cruise 2014

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Freedom of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 23, 2014


Love Royal Caribbean Cruises - Treated like Royal and they listen to you.  Always FUN!!!  Wanted more dance music and we received it.  Dining experience was the tops.  Watier and Asst. waiter were the best ever.  Activities on ship were outstanding.  Loved the Ice skating rink and show.  All other shows were fantastic.

Tips for Freedom of the Seas

Great idea to book a room in the forward of the ship since the food places are located in the aft, causing you to walk off all the food!

Try to book a top deck if you are not a smoker I was on 8, wish I had been higher for more breeze.

Always check the Ship's compass (newsletter) daily. It's the best way to not miss any of the fun activities.

Get a balcony room. Loved sitting out on the balcony sipping my coffee as we pulled into port, and falling asleep at night watching lightning storms.

Lunch at the dinning room is MUCH better than the windjammer cafe.

We enjoy the promenade deck to meet up after dinner.

Room Service and hit the pool deck early before it gets full

This is a very large ship, the crowd was noticeable on a couple instances. If participating in shows or other group events, get there early.

I like the main dinning room for dinner, but the line-up for breakfast was some times too long. Windjammer restaurant was my favorite for breakfast and lunch.

Breakfast in your cabin....sun bathing on the top deck...cool

If you complete your pre board paperwork check in will take less than 5 minutes.

Read the daily compass so you can plan your activities for the following day.

Ask to be seated with Dias and Wilfred in the Dining Room.

The Windjammer is great for all meals especially if you are in a hurry. The ship doesn't spend a lot of time in St. Thomas so plan activities/shopping accordingly.

Read the daily Compass delivered to your stateroom every day. There are so many activities, tidbits of information, etc. Otherwise, you will real lose out.

Bring a pool bag to carry towels to the different ports and always have a watch on hand with the "ship's time" as when you go to places like Mexico and Jamaica, there is a time difference and you don't want to miss the departure time of the ship!!!

Ask your waiter for something you'd like, even if it's not on the menu. Probably you will get it!

SEE ALL THE SHOWS THERE GREAT. tHE DINING RROM FOOD WAS GREAT

Wear good shoes...it is a BIG ship

Wear good gripping shoes around the pool area. At times slippery when wet.
