This was our third time on Freedom of the Seas. The experience was just okay. Pros: ship is clean, staff in the dining room and shops are excellent. Entertainment headliners are excellent

Cons: We booked a junior suite- other than extra room there was no other difference than a regular balcony cabin. Never knew the steward's name, had to ask for ice, ask for an extra towel, not even a pen was in the room. Bed had huge sag on my side- ouch. Food was cafeteria level and very small portions. If you happen to order and extra entree or dessert your waiter is allowed only enough for the number of tables they have in their station. They must go around to other waiters to see if they had no shows in their station so they can use that allotted entree- RIDICULOUS! Rented a cabana on Labadee- they are very nice but NOT worth $250 for the day- oh well. They raised the prices to $35 a person in the specialty restaurants- noticed they were mostly empty- I can understand why. Largest steak in Chops is 12oz- not that we eat a lot, but that is higher than New York city prices (Wolfgang's Steakhouse- excellent 20 oz- you  could share!) Going back to Celebrity...

Ship Tip

Try the silent disco! Bring your own soft drinks on board- fairly expensive. AND most of all tip your servers- DO NOT let them add the automatically!! They are shared with EVERYONE, even people you never saw and your servers and stewards see a portion and it takes up to a month for them to get them!
