Main dining room was delicious & the buffett was okay. But, Guys & Blue Iguana were delicious!!

Pizza Pirate

4 out of 5

Pizza was good I just wish they had a sausage or hamburger option.

Skybox Sports Bar

5 out of 5

I love my Kansas City Chiefs and they showed the game. It made it even better because there was other fans on board so watching the game was like watching it at home.

Guy's Burger Joint

Onboard Activities

We relaxed in the hottubs on the serenity deck almost every night. I dont like super hot hottubs so it was perfect temperature for me.

Guest Services / Shore Excursions

Always fixed any of our problems. Wish they had more people there to get the line moving a little faster. Did have someone tell us one thing & went back the next day and denied saying it.

We went on this ship before & had a blast. I still had a blast this time but the piano bar was horrible (we had Ben our first time so our expectations were high). We loved the comedy club they were hilarious (18+).

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
We took my little cousin who is 13 (circle c) & she had a blast at kids club. She met new friends & they always had something for them to do. The people working the kids club were also amazing!

Ship tip

If it's your first cruise Freedom would be the perfect ship for you.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

5 out of 5
We parked at Discount Cruise Parking and had free shuttle. Once we arrived at the port it was very organized & everyone was so friendly.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Very clean & nice. I was a little disappointed because I thought we were porting at downtown & we didnt. We ported at Puerta Maya. This port was cheap.

Belize City, Belize

3 out of 5
Expensive but nice port area. There is a lot of shopping.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

3 out of 5
Expensive but very beautiful. Shopping right at port.
