Review summary

This was my 5th cruise on Royal Caribbean. The Freedom of the Seas ship was a big improvement over my other ships. I chose this cruise for the destinations and was not disappointed. The WaveRunner was amazing to watch. Very nice to have a basketball/soccer court plus the min-golf.

Direction signs could be improved. Cabin areas only showed your deck while Promenade showed all decks. Add more Fore/Aft signs.

Cabin / Stateroom

Bathroom design was great. Had more shower room and the closing doors were much better that the curtains.

Ship tip

Airline lost my luggage and it took 6 days to catch up, Split your packing so you can survive with just your carry-on bag.
