Our Wonderful Honeymoon Cruise

Sail Date: May 30, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We recently sailed on the Freedom of the Seas for the first time, and all we can say is "Wow!" My Wife had been on the Sovereign of the sea a few years back but we had no idea what to expect. Beautiful restaurants, a fantastic pools and the nightclub made our Honeymoon cruise special, they even made a cake for us and helped us celebrate one night. We really like Royal Caribbean's style, service, and innovative ship and after speaking with Allen Brooks the Cruise Director He is Great by the way we plan to book again on the new Oasis of the sea. The Dining room is beautiful and cozy, the service was great the staff delivers outstanding personal service. The Windjammer buffet really isn't a "buffet" it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). The Food area is very wide-open and airy feeling, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great and we enjoyed the new Latin club, Boleros, the Champagne Bar and the live music at Schooner's Pub. Felt like a totally different night out, every single night. The ship features are most apparent on the pool deck, truly one of the most beautiful we've ever seen. The multi-color splash pool and suspension bridge are amazing. Our stateroom was cozy and had nice features (really liked the new shower 'door". Lots of storage elements, easy to unpack and fell like there was a place for everything. Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful, and even if we don't sail on the Oasis we will sail on the Freedom again soon
