Didn't want it to end!

Sail Date: June 01, 2010

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise. We traveled many years in luxury resorts & hotels and with the arrival of a new baby our budget tightened, so we tried a cruise. I initally was concerned about the size of the room, however, much to our surprise our room was pretty spacious. The shower was very tight though. We had a "Promenade" room overlooking the parade route. Loved it and recommend it! Incredible value figuring how much you would spend on food, hotel, transportation, etc.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Value, Ports

Cons: The Main Dining Room, Pushy salon staff trying to sell products

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Had higher expections. Enjoyed the buffet most nights because our dining time was so late. Our dinner companions at the dining room were much older and very "hoity toity". They were very stuffy and it was uncomfortable. Our server messed our order up on both nights. Only before departing did I realize, we prepaid our gratuities to a mediocre server who only took care of us for only two nights out of seven!
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Better than I anticipated!
Service and Staff
Incredible! Became very friendly with several staff who divulged some of port's best kept secrets! All the staff were very friendly and really seemed to enjoy their job.
