Freedom of the Seas

November 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Cruise was great and ship good, but could use an update in the public areas

The Freedom of the Seas is a fine ship, however, the promenade design concept had good points and bad for me.  The good were that the design allowed for fun times with the 70s night dance show and the parade.  also gave the ambiance of an outside street shopping and dining area.  the bad was that it was somewhat dated looking and was too crowded.  The cruise was excellent.  shows were broadway quality, the staff was very, very courteous and accommodating.  the wait staff in the dining room actually memorized our names and called us by name always.  Juan Carlos, and Kenesha get 5 stars.  Ron our room attendant was excellent.  I rate the TV channels in the room as 1 star, wanted some local USA news, and business channel.  no such luck.  Other cruise ships, Disney and Celebrity did a better job at this.  The Promenade shops need a much needed upgrade, especially the jewelry shops.  Did not seem to have a good look and feel to them. The Portifino restaurant was beyond our expectation.  Wait staff, ambiance and food were 5 stars!!  Ice show was beyond belief.  that is a large space for limited use on the ship, but worth it.  Our room could have had a little more storage drawers and cabinets with doors for storage.

thomasmoran's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - our third time to Cozumel and loved just walking around and shopping
Falmouth, Jamaica - We took a bus trip to Montego Bay and enjoyed the free time there
Port Canaveral, Florida - Nice quick boarding area. However, off load too way too long. we waited 2.5 hours after docking before we got to the luggage area. long lines! Disney gets you off the boat in 1.5 hors after docking. seemed to flow a lot quicker.
Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Room could use an alarm clock that accommodates iPhone (like Disney does) Elevator number and size accommodated the large (4300) passenger count well. Ditch the Morgan in the promenade, took up valuable foot traffic space.
