This was my first cruise. What struck me right away on freedom of the seas is the quality of service. Every staff member is always happy to help you and you never feel like they are hard to find. They always have a smile on their faces. The stateroom felt much bigger than the square footage would lead you to believe. A typical room in a house is bigger, but the utilization of all space in the stateroom was brilliant. No part is left to chance or underutilized. There is space for everything you want to bring, and the room allows you to put it out of sight. All of the food was very good in both the buffet and formal dining. I loved all the ports of call and found the entire experience great. My only small complait was the occasional loud noise during dinner in the dining room. One night a woman with a megaphone came in with twenty kids all dressed like pirates. They all were yelling for about fifteen minutes. Not the right time and place for a couple trying to have a relaxing and romantic dinner. We still ate in the dining room every evening and overall were very happy.

Pros: the service

Cons: the loud improvised shows during formal dinner
