Sail Date: January 24, 2016
Ship: Freedom of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 8525
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

started out really impressed  but it went downhill over several smaller things.  If you get the soft drink package only there are machines on deck 5 and deck 11 ONLY.  No big deal but the ones on 5 were broke most of the time.  Watch out for any food (like the Tortuga rum cakes) in their ship store.  When we opened them up they had expired in May of 2013!  The main dinning food was okay but the buffet on deck 11 beat it almost every day.  They do really try to bleed you on (I suspect) all cruises.  120 bucks to park!  An ATM machine that would only give you 50 bucks at a time no matter what your balance was (6.50 per transaction so I don't think this was an accident)

when choosing a cabin look closely at the layout and pick one not too far from the stairs/elevators or you will double your walking on this ship

Ship Tip

make sure you check out dining options since we found better food in the Windjammer dinning than the main one
