Freedom of the Seas

February 2016 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Wonderful Cruise

This was my first RC cruise. I have to say the service was exceptional. The few problems I had were resolved right away. The staff know you by name. I felt very safe aboard this ship. I enjoyed the shows, the dining room, the adult only pool and the ports of call.

There are a few negative things I could say. For one the internet packages are $20 per day and you have to purchase it for the entire cruise. That's $140 for one device. People who bought it complained the internet was too slow. Also, the prices for the arcade games are $1.50 each. They warn parents that children are able to use their seapass cards here, but I don't understand why they don't have packages where parents can pay for a certain amount of time. Also, they are always trying to sell you stuff - watches, jewelry, etc. The ATM machines charge you a $6.50 service fee. Casino slots are tight. Don't even bother.

dbeauchamp's Tips

Falmouth, Jamaica - Organized tour with Reggae Tours to Montego Bay. Guide was friendly and prompt. They were much cheaper than RC.
Port Canaveral, Florida - Did the JFK space centre tour. It was more interesting than I thought it would be, but a bit rushed. No time for Imax Movie. It runs from 9 -2 and they drop you at airport for 3pm.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Stingray city and snorkel tour was great. Internet café located near post office, 5 minutes from pier.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Bring water shoes or your feet will get cut from rocks on beach. Buffet lines are long and food is not great. People who did the zip lines or roller coaster were the only people who seemed satisfied.
Cozumel, Mexico - First, no one wants plastic. It is cash only. Also, they mostly want American money, not even pesos. Beware of ATM fees and exchange rates. When I got home I was charged $150 Canadian to take out $100 US!
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Don't buy anything the first day. It all goes on sale by 60% by the last day. All spa packages that were $179 on Day 1 go down to $99 on Day 5. Ping Pong tables hidden behind flowrider section on side of ship. Regular coffee and tea at back of Starbucks free 24~7. They have free food and desserts to
