Freedom of the Seas

March 2015 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

!!!Dont buy a watch from the on-board jewelry shop!!!

I bought a watch for $1299 USD (retail was supposedly $3600) at the watch sale. Due to Royal Caribbean charging outrageously priced wireless fees ($140 USD). I had no way of checking prices, but assumed it would be less then back home. Boy was I wrong! I can pick up the same watch for half the price (approx. $650 USD).

Other than that, we did enjoy the cruise and the ports that were visited, but not as much as other cruises that I have been on.

I was disappointed that we never got a chance to try out the "flowrider", a highlighted specialty of this ship which allows you to experience surfing/body surf without the dangers.. It was either not running (a lot of the time) or it was booked up.

Food was good, although you had to puchase a "beverage" package - we bought a nonalcoholic one for $150USD and a soda one for $50USD. - if they give you the chance to pick from 3 offers ($75 on-board credit, free beverage package, i dont recall the third option) I recommend checking into the beverage package. The last time I cruised was years ago and soft drinks, water, coffee etc was included, I assumed this was the case and got stung again.

I felt like I was being "nickled and dimmed" every chance they got (beverage packages, wireless charges, automatic gratuities).

toddc336's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - didnt do any excursions - just got off the ship and went to the market
Falmouth, Jamaica - didnt do any excursions - just got off the ship and went to the market
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - it was too hot, my wife and I could only take the heat for a couple of hours. (my wife can work in the yard all day at home where its typically 30C and hotter, but the heat is different in the caribbean.
