7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 20, 2015
Ship: Freedom of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9224
Traveled As: Family (older children)

The ship was well maintained.   Entertainment was mediocre.  Food choices and qualities was extremely limited, same items served during lunch/dinner.  Even in their main dining, it was mostly same menu every night with 3-4 new items. If you are vegetarian, no selection other than eating pasta and sauce, salad every meal.  Room and bathroom was small for oceanview room compared to Holland America ship.The shore excursion that stands out is water rafting in Falmouth, Jamaica.  Labadee was a total disappointment in regards to food options and beach.  We ended up returning back to the ship way before the sail time and eating on board.

Not too many choices. Mostly same food served during lunch/dinner. Even if you put in a request for a vegetarian item, it would be same items. No fresh chicken anywhere onboard. No chance that you will over eat on this cruise. Most likely you will end up losing few pounds.

Cabin clean. Bathroom needed remodeling. Walls were chipping. Shower was tiny where you will be bumping into the door when showering. Not too much closet space.

Ocean/beach very rocky. Don't bother spending money on the beach bed. It has curtains which does not provide shades due to windy condition.

Not enough hours there to enjoy. Food at the port was horrible (Quiznos & Nathans).
