7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 14, 2010
Ship: Freedom of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The ship itself had a lot of amenities. It was easy to navigate around. It was clean. The only negative was trying to go between floors, the elevators were extremely slow.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Their 24 hour food availability was terrible. They only had tiny premade sandwiches. Other cruise lines have nice hot sandwiches all day long. The one time we actually went into the dining hall the wait staff was rude.

The shows seemed repetitive. They used internal staff too often, it would be nice to have entire shows that have outside representatives.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff was friendly, but I was not really wowed by many employees on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room was clean and pretty sizeable. We were nervous going into to it about the size of the bathrooms, but there was plenty of space.

Once you walked down far enough the beach was quite nice.

This was our second trip to Cozumel and we enjoyed it much more than last time. The quaility of the beach we went to was nice. We went to a place called Mr. Sanchos. Good food, great service and many amenities.
5 out of 5
You must go to 7 mile beach. The shopping was quite nice and you definately felt much safer.

It rained that day, so our opinion is probably skewed. Jamaica was the worst port.

Pros: Extras on the ship - Rockwall, Flowrider, etc.

Cons: Food and the service

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!
