The ship was great. The embarkation as well as debarkation was very easy and took minimal time. The dining service started out a little shaky, but we contacted the head waiter, moved to another dining room and had great service the rest of the cruise. The food was not what we have had in the past, it was bland and the desert selection was not very good. Our waiter Ramon was superb, and that made up for some of the food quality.
The 80's parties and karaoke was a blast each night. There were plenty of activities on the ship. We could have used a little more time in each port. The dining at CHOPS was outstanding, best steak I have ever had. We had an inside room, and it was very nice and quiet. We did not see our room steward the entire cruise. Not sure if that was good or bad? The shops on board were very reasonable.

We spent alot of time in the On Air club, and our server Biliana was great!
Overall we had a great time, and booked another for next summer on the Liberty!

Pros: Ship was great/ CHOPS

Cons: Dining room service/ food

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!
