A Great Cruise

Sail Date: March 18, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Freedom of the Seas is a great ship at a fair price. We were able to book for 699 a person. The cost was about 400 dollars cheaper than Royal's bigger ships but you did not lose out on much.

Pros: The ship

Cons: The Adventure Ocean Staff

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
Stateroom attendant and Waiters were awesome. There were several encounters with bad service. A photographer berated us for riping photos that we were not going to purchase. A barista at Starbucks mixed up our order and then continued to blame us for his mix up. The Adventure Ocean staff did not give proper attention to a situation in which our son was hurt on premises. We reported this to managment and they downplayed the incident. Adventure Ocean camp attendants are not equipped to deal with children in my opinion.
Children's Programs
I only rated this poorly because of the Adventure Ocean staff.
Food and Dining
Typical ship food nothing above and beyond. We dined at the chops grille one night. The steak was great and at30 dollars a person it was about what other ships charge you for fine dining.
Cabin / Stateroom
Again typical cruise ship size rooms. The layout is similar to other Royal ships.
Ship Quality
Very clean ship.
Ice rink, flow rider, rock climbing wall, mini golf and basketball. Plenty of activity on this ship.
