Review summary

king bed in the room was very tight to manever around; should have slept in twin beds instead, was tough getting out of bed and going out to the veranda. The veranda was dirty, couldn't see but the sky when sitting down.  The railings blocked the view and the sunshield glass was dirty and blocked the view on the aft. The smoke in the gambling room was horrible, could not gamble.  When we finally got a machine to sit down and play a smoker would sit next to us and blow their smoke in our faces.  Had to leave which was their idea of us giving up our spot so they could take over.

the engine knocked with a very bad vibration the entire cruise, there were even times the engine shut down (which was a relief) but a big worry. The ship definitely needed servicing and from what we heard was just brought out of dry dock!

Ship tip

Not to stay in the AFT on the Freedom

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

Our home port, but arriving back was a nightmare trying to get out of Galveston. Remember folks that there will always be Mardi Gras in February!

Falmouth, Jamaica

Didn't make it due to fog but did make it to Costa Maya. No complaints on Costa Maya.
