Great Cruise

Sail Date: May 24, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was clean, well maintained, the rooms were comfy with good beds. The entertainment was first rate and the food was excellent. I have only two complaints. 1) the saving of pool chairs by the ship's personnel after forbidding guests the same privilege. If concierge suite guests wish to save a seat, fine, let them call and reserve one but do not save a whole section of chairs which they don't use and let other guests wander around looking for someplace to sit. 2) the shore excursions in Georgetown were disorganized to the extreme. We lost more than 1/2 hour on our excursion to 7 mile beach because the guides didn't know what they were doing.

Pros: The entertainment was fabulous and the waiters were all extremely friendly.

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!

Ocho Rios, Jamaica
gorgeous island. Margaritaville was a blast.
Don't Miss: we took the Jamaican bobsled shore excursion. it was a blast, a definite "don't miss."
George Town, Grand Cayman
7 mile beach was beautiful but getting there was a nightmare. The shore excursion guides were so disorganized we lost more than a 1/2 an hour of our beach time. They didn't know where anyone was, there was no clear direction of where people were supposed to meet and then we had to ride in an unairconditioned bus.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
the beach is beautiful and very clean
Don't Miss: the zip line is a must.
