We love Freestyle!

Sail Date: February 03, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Pride of America is a lovely, clean ship with alot to do and a very nice crew. We have cruised over thirty times on almost all of the cruise lines and this exceeded our expectations. We liked the Freestyle concept since we were onboard to relax and not for regimentation. We were able to do what we wanted, when we wanted and we did not have to get formal (which would have been kind of ridiculous on a casual, beach activity vacation). The food was varied and very good. The service was excellent and specialty restaurant reservations were easier to get than on most ships. There were many "extra" onboard charges but all were voluntary and the cruise was really not very pricey. Our balcony stateroom was roomy enough, comfortable and attractive. The onboard announcements were few and, therefore, not annoying. Embarkation and disembarkation were well organized. The shows were good enough. No casino but the onboard shops were convenient and open while in port.
Not for everyone but I think most independent, well-traveled, experienced cruisers will enjoy Freestyle more than the regimentation of traditional cruising.

Pros: Friendliness & helpfulness of crew members.

Cons: The end of the cruise.
