August 2014 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern
Last year, we went on our first cruise on the Oasis. For the (less expensive) price, the Freedom is a great cruise to be on. The Freedom doesn't have a few additional activities, such as the water diving show and the zip line. They are not worth the extra money, in my opinion.
Family interior stateroom on deck 2 is very spacious for 2 adults and 3 kids. It even has a walk-in closet!
The food, on the other hand, was a bit toooo salty for us, in the main dining room or the Windjammer. For example, with the 5 lobster dishes we ordered, only one was not salty. The other 4 were salty to the point that they were almost uneatable. We ate them all, since we didn't want to waste any food we ordered.
In summary, if you are debating between the Oasis and the Freedom, go with the Freedom and save yourself some dough.
