Freedom of the Seas

November 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Enjoyed Cruise even with revised port visits

Due to technical problems RCCL had to change from St Thomas and St martins to Nassau and Cozumel. Disappointed, but they handled the change well and were reasonable with compensation. Freedom is still an excellent ship. Maintained well, clean, and comfortable. Balcony cabin was very comfortable-no issues, steward was above average. Entertainment was also above average altho changed due to port changes. Food was probably about average by todays standards with a few exceptions. Chops Grill was excellent, as good a meal as you would get at an upscale steak house anywhere. The lobster was prepared as well as I have ever had on a cruise ship. Waiters and staff were above average. RCCL has obviously cut back on servings of dressings, sauces and condiments. No Au Jus for prime rib, Skimpy Hollandaise on Eggs Benedict. a tablespoon short on Caesar Salad etc. Not as easy to serve  4000 folks and keeps prices competitive a dash at a time. Crew and staff went out of their way to mingle and be friendly. Longer than average wait boarding due to ship arriving 2 hours late. Disembarkation was a little slow (too much waiting in line- poor people flow). Seems like cruise lines could get this right as much as they do it. Parked at Radison Port Park and had no issues. All in all an excellent cruise under the circumstances. Will book again when price is right and regular schedule is resumed. Cruises Only was excellent and will use again.

harcfh's Tips

Port Canaveral, Florida - Did not do anything here as we live close. The NASA experience is excellent and like the beaches in area.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Would not purchase Premium Beverage package in future. Not a good value unless you are a very heavy drinker. Try Chops Grill--Excellent. Windjammer excellent for lunch and/or late breakfast.
