February 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
This was our 25th cruise. This was the best designed and prettiest ship on which we have sailed. The Royal Promenade area is a great addition to the ship. The service on this ship was excellent, including the dining room staff and the stateroom attendant. The food was good, but not quiet as good as Carnival. The biggest need for improvement was the itenerary and shore tours. There was too short a time scheduled in each of the ports and not enough time scheduled in the shore tours. Though we had about 9 hours in one port, the shore tours were only scheduled about 4 hours. Our beach and snorkeling tour only allowed about an hour at the beach. Got the impression they wanted to get you back so you could shop and spend money. Otherwise it was an excellent cruise.
