7 Night Western Caribbean Cruise on the Freedom of the Seas

Sail Date: October 09, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was beautiful and very nicely maintained. It would be nice if Royal Caribbean had an app to view dining/activities etc. although the wall mounted version was user friendly.  It would be nice too if guests could text each other onboard or communicate in some capacity with each other while out & about on the ship. I missed their ice carvings & midnight buffets that Royal Caribbean featured a number of years ago.

Cabin / Stateroom
While small & the shower tiny, which is typical of older ships, the room was in good condition and our stateroom attendant Suzanna Joseph took very good care of our needs & keeping our room immaculate.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Both Embarkation and Disembarkation went smoothly.
Destinations and Excursions
We didn't take any shore excursions on this cruise and only visited the local shopping stores at the port closest to where the ship docked.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
N/A as we don't have any young children.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


We loved the non alcoholic Beverage package, which we purchased additionally for approximately $70 pp as there was over 100 choices of nonalcoholic beverages to choose from including an ample selection on diet and caffeine free drinks so we felt there was good value in the purchase of this option.
