This ship is absolutely beautiful BUT it is too crowded. They have greatly expanded their ability to carry passengers but pools, windjammer and other things were too crowded. Windjammer was most upsetting because it was nearly impossible to find an empty table let alone one to look over the ocean. Also, the ports were even too crowded. We would arrive at each island only to find 4 other cruise ships there too. FOS is too large to be pampered the way in which I enjoy RCCL and sailing to pamper me. Guess I've been spoiled by other wonderful RCCL cruises.

Pros: Beautiful ship with excellent entertainment

Cons: Too crowded. Lines were too long in Windjammer and everywhere else.

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? No.
