The ship was beyond our expectation. So IMMACULATE in every area/ We would and have already HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Royal Caribbean "Freedom of the Seas" to everyone. What a marvelous trip and the price was right!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Bed was SO COMFORTABLE, room spotless, size a bit small but we weren't in the room very much. Next time I would like to have a balcony for the evenings.

Ship tip

Don't bring too many clothes. 2 formal nights and the rest is casual. Swimsuits definitely.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

I had been to PR 52 years ago and was not that impressed. I don't like PR food so dining was a challenge for me. The people were lovely but the prices were very high for food and any hotels on the beach. In comparison to the other islands, it could NOT compate.

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
We explored on our own but I am in a wheelchair and it was not easy. Next time I would take a cruise exploration of the town. What we did see was beautiful.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
This was our favorite island. The water was so gorgeous in so many shades of blue. We took a village tour and loved it. The Curacao distillary was great. Would go back definitely.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

5 out of 5
The water was crystal clear even near the ship. We toured the town on our own and enjoyed the little shops. Next time will take a tour.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
This was our second favorite island. We took the water taxi to town and walked along the water. Great shops, many restaurants, friendly people, and would definitely go back.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We were on and off the ship with absolutely no problems. Staff couldn't have been better. Absolutely LOVED "Freedom of the Seas" and would definitely cruise with her again.
