I sailed aboard Freedom of the seas on its maiden 2 day UK cruise. From start to finish i can not praise the service we had enough, nor the standard of the ship. It was incredible. The sheer scale of the ship is probably the most impressive factor. We arrived on the ship at around 11, checked into our cabins within 20 minutes of arriving and were at the bar straight after. We were greeted by a smil every turn and nothing was ever to much hassle for the staff. The flow rider was impressive although the english channel isnt the warmest place to try out swimming! Every cm of the ship is decorated to the highest standard. I would reccomend the ship to anyone wishing a relaxed cruise with 5* standards.

Pros: Everything

Ship Quality
336m long, 14 decks, Every Inch of the ship was spotless. Because of the shear size of the ship we did get lost a few times but everything is well signed.
Food and Dining
I have never tasted such good food anywhere else in the world, and being a travel agent i have travelled a lot and tasted a vast array of food. Dining times were 18.15 and 20.15 although i would say if you do opt for a sitting, take the early one.
Cabin / Stateroom
Spotless, well laid out. Plenty of room.
Service and Staff
These staff are clearly very happy in there jobs and this comes over in the standard of service you recieve. Excellent.
To much to take in in 2 days!
Children's Programs
Kids clubs for all ages and again a huge array of activities.
