June 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
The ship was amazing! We had one of the smallest staterooms and there was still plenty of room, more than all of the other cruise lines I've been on (which is 3). The food was great, my only complaint is that the buffet closes at 9 pm, which I thought was to early. If I wanted a healthy late snack it was hard to find, there are other options like pizza and sandwiches. There are so many fun activities to do, and fun things going on all the time. I love the main pool area, it has a little splash area you can sit in and stay cool in the sun while you watch the big screen. The ports we went to were amazing, unfortunately the swells were too big so we didn't see Coco Cay. St Thomas was beautiful. We snorkeled at Lindquist Beach, which was secluded and beautiful. We snorkeled on the reefs there and saw sea turtles, sting rays, sand dollars and beautiful fish. They do not have snorkel gear there so you have to bring it. The can ride p/p was $10 each way. In st Maarten we went b to Orient Beach, the French side. It was one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. The cab ride was cheap, the more people you have the cheaper the price. We had 4 people and it was $32 roundtrip for both of us. It is a nude beach, which I didn't prefer, but if you stay to the left of the rocks (if you're looking at the ocean) there aren't any nude people. This cruise left me wanting to find a crawl space I could sneak in to stay on another week.
