Freedom of the Seas

August 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Fantastic

We had a wonderful time. With the mall atmosphere on the promenade, you don't even know you're at sea. There are plenty of things to do on board during the days at sea.  I loved the orchestra and the production shows. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.  If we needed anything they got it for us.  The chef even made Philly cheese steak sandwiches for us!  The ports of call were great.  Nice beaches and plenty of things to do.  In St Maarten we sailed on the America's cup yachts.  Wow! that was the best excursion I was ever on!   The worst (and most expensive) was the Dolphin encounter from St Thomas.  What a waste of time! Took 6 hrs., We stood in the hot sun filling out paper work for an hour after walking almost a mile to the meeting place.  Took a rough boat ride for another hour with people getting sick ugh!  30 min encounter was good, but the pictures they took of us could not be viewed.  They ripped off a scrap of paper and wrote an email and some numbers for contact when we got home. It got lost (of course).  Very unprofessional!  Except for that we had a wonderful time and I would take this cruise again.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - don't know what St Thomas was like since we spend all our time on the excursion from hell. Tortola Dolphin encounter.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - When you return from an excursion when docked, walk to the elevators on the other side of the ship. There will be fewer people waiting there. Most people go to the closest ones.
