Review summary

Overall this cruise was just as great as the last. Cruises are what you make of them. & I made this one great, relaxing, & left ready to plan the next one.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
My group of 14 were on ship eating Guy’s burgers within 30 minutes of arriving to port.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
I gave 4 stars only because fruit was warm a couple of times; other than that food was good as usual.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Always something to do on a cruise. Movies, dance club, comedy club, karaoke, etc. We had a great time.

Pool

Enjoyed 21+ endless pool in back of ship. Able to read my book poolside & catch a little sun.

Photo Gallery

I was suckered in to purchasing pics this time, but the quality was great so I’m happy 😊.

Jogging Track

5 out of 5

Walked this track more than I would have at home. The view & breeze is always a plus.

Serenity

5 out of 5

God bless the one who came up with the idea of a serenity deck for 21+!!! I used the “Serenity” more than once & the relaxation is amazing!!!

Babylon Casino

4 out of 5

Gave a small donation to casino, but I don’t mind. I went with a budget, & I was able to kill time between activities.

The Fun Shops

5 out of 5

Shops always have cute souvenirs & T-shirt’s to take back to land. I even bought myself an anklet.

Sports Deck

My boys had a blast on b-ball court.

Club O2

5 out of 5

The testimony from the four 16 year old boys in our group had a blast!!!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service has always been exceptional & this time they did not disappoint. Cristian, Carlos, & Bootdcha did a great job waiting on our group of 14. Rogie our room steward kept our room clean at all times.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Second time on Freedom so the layout was easy for me to grasp. Overall, ship remained clean & well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Rogie kept our room clean at all times. Size was perfect for the 2 of us. & the comfort of the bed was exceptional. Enjoyed my balcony view & relaxed outside quite often.

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Cozumel is always a fun time for me. We had a private driver who took our group of 14 to explore the city & how locals live & their culture. Then we ended the day at Carlos & Charlie’s. Some of us rode jet skis, parasailing, snorkeling, got hair braided, got a massage, played beach volleyball, got hensa tattoo, ate, & drank. Had a blast!!!

Galveston, Texas

5 out of 5
Galveston is our home away from home so I’m biased. Water isn’t very appealing but the history & character of the island is always a pleasure. Lighthouse Parking is highly recommended.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
We knew it’d be raining the day we were here so we planned to just shop around port, eat, & relax. & that’s just what we did. Had lunch at Wet Lizard...good food & service.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Beautiful port. Next time we may choose to stay at port & enjoy all it has to offer. This time we took a trip to Chachoben Mayan Ruins. Absolutely amazing experience. Must see!!!

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Always disappointed when it’s time to return to reality. But transition was pretty smooth.
