October 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
we had a great time on the freedom of the seas,
The cruise director was very attentive, anxious to provide a great time for all ages. The food in the dinning room was good. The food in the windjammer was regular cruise fare. I would have liked better selection on different days but it seemed to be the same everyday in the windjammer. The stir fry station was not be operated at the most convienent times. we like to have fresh pasta with fresh vegatable stir fry which not not at service to us. The service was good in both the windjammer and the dinning room. the promanade was filled with late night goodies pizza in sorrentos and some pastries along with sandwiches that were on good rolls and shrimp salad sandwiches available almost always in the cafe included in your cruise fare.
The ship was beautiful
I have to try not to compare my current cruise experience with the way it was back in the 1990's and the early 2000's when they would have beautiful buffets in the late night and the ice carvings that do not exist anymore. They would be worthy of picture taking,and ooohs and aughs.
In summary i would definately take this cruise vacation again. hope i helped you decide. the staterooms were nice and the service was great. compareitively speaking i would choose rccl as one of my favorite cruise lines. Donna Paraskevaidis
