The best way to describe our experience on the Freedom of the Seas is using the golfing term "at par". Everything from the stateroom to the shopping to dining was what you would expect from a Royal Caribbean cruise, nothing exceptional here.  In fact if your heart is not set on their Flowrider surfing activity, I would say save your money and go on the Voyager of the Sea or the Explorer of the Sea.  What I did notice was a measurable decrease in the level of enthusiasm and friendliness in the crew. Could be due to the automatic gratuity charges.....?
