I went on the Freedom of the Seas in April 2007 with my son a group of friends. The ship was about a year old at that time, and she was at that time the largest ship we#39;d ever been on.
Our entire experience was fantastic! Not only was our room spacious and beautiful, but our stateroom attendant (Clemente) was just fantastic. He knew our names right away, and he Jason were total buddies.
The wait staff we had for our group was so much fun, and they were super attentive. Our head waiter was Fredy the assistant waiter was Karen. You can actually see Karen on the Travel Channel#39;s show on the Freedom - she is at the very end in Johnny Rockets dancing. We hated to leave them at the end of the trip!
We chose to do quite a few shore excursions on this trip, all booked ahead of time through the Royal Caribbean website (super easy). We did some ziplining, we snuba#39;d, swam with dolphins, and went jet skiing on Labadee.
Overall we had a tremendous experience. Jason loved the ship, made a few friends, and mastered the surfrider by the end of the trip. We were VERY impressed with the staff overall - everyone was always so helpful and friendly throughout the ship. And as large as she is, the ship just didn#39;t feel that huge to us.
I highly recommend sailing on the Freedom of the Seas!
