December 2013 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
Have been on The Navigator, Mariner, Allure, and now The Freedom. I love the Promenade. It is always exciting. You never feel like you are on a ship. All the shops, cafe`s, something happening all the time. The 70`s party was fantastic in the Promenade. Also the parade!
The entertainment was excellent, like a Broadway show, The food was very good, if I did not like something, the waiter would bring something different. The staff was very friendly and very polite. I was disappointed that they did not separate a smoking side of the Casino. Too much smoke therefore I did not spend any time there. The only other negative was boarding and getting off the ship. The facility for getting on was too small for that many people. I never had that problem with smaller ships leaving Pt Canaveral. The line was a very long snake. Getting off, there were mixed signals which created a long line of people trying to get off the ship. The baggage situation on the conveyor belt was also not good. Waited too long and too crowded.
Other than that, I always love Royal Caribbean and especially this class of ships.
