Freedom of the Seas

January 2016 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Great room and itinerary

We booked the Presidential suite Room 6006 in the aft of the boat.  There were 8 of us and it cost the same as if we all book separately AND we all got into the concierge lounge every night.  Concierge service is the ultimate in helpfulness.


A lot of comments were that the balcony did not over look the water.  That is in fact not true, altho there is a deck that protrudes 25 feet beyond the railing.  It did not take away fro the deck experience.  The balcony is about 50 fifty feet wide and 800 square feet - the size of 4-5 cabins.  It boasts a hot tub, bar and a dining table for 10 people comfortably.


We would definitely book it again.

williamcate's Tips

Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Try and book a grand suite and above. It's well worth the price as the concierge can book excursions, shows, dinner reservations AND expidite getting on and off the ship. At one port recently the concierge lead us right to the head of the line for the tender.
