Freedom of the Seas

December 2016 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Loved going to St. Kitts!

We loved seeing St. Kitts and the tour of the old part of the island including the Batik factory and Old Fort at the top of the hill. Roads were in good condition owing to a recent visit by Prince Harry. Narrow winding road goes around the island (don't try this yourself) tour buses have to blow the horn as they go around curves. Views are lovely. People are nice. It's not as commercial as St. Maarten. But, tourism is king. Sugar cane is gone, so it's only a matter of time before cruisers are expected to shop til they drop. Royal Caribbean emphasizes the shopping more than I ever remember on a cruise. Dining rooms are lovely, wait staff is pleasant. Room stewards are hard working. Ship was very full. They charge $3.00 for a water bottle now. We did get to bring wine on board. We felt like the dining room was crowded at breakfast and lunch time. Only one open at those times. It's best to eat on the early side. We thought the 5:30 dinner was too early. Would like to see it go back to 6pm.

Freedom of the Seas

May 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Loved it!

We greatly enjoyed our cruise May 18-25 on Freedom of the Seas. Loved the balcony. First night there was constant rattling of the screens between the stateroom balconies. Solved it by stuffing kleenex between the edge of the glass and the frame. Needed ice everyday for a sore knee condition which was cheerfully provided by Marta, our room steward 2 times a day. Food service was great in Leonardos dining room first seating. Crew provided wheel chair service getting on and off the ship. The entertainment was highlighted by the Platters, the magician and the acrobats.

dandelewis's Tips

San Juan, Puerto Rico - We walked up to the musem. Got there at 3:30 (time change), they wouldn't let us in cause they close at 4pm. We weren't in port very long.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Don't go to breakfast and lunch later, like 8:30 and 1pm. Go early like 7-7:30 and 12noon, because the dining room (leonardo's) is the only one open and it's very popular, especially because 4000 people have to eat. The salad bar at lunch is excellent! Breakfast buffet upstairs (early) is nice.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - For early morning coffee and muffin, stop on Deck #5 at the café (24 hour). Happy servers ready and waiting with hot coffee and treats! Loved it.
