Freedom of the Seas

September 2016 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Jr. Suite is very nice

We were upgraded from a Superior Ocean View Balcony to Jr. Suite for a $300 up-charge. Beware though, getting an upgrade in this manner will not earn double cruise points as we found out later. If we had known this, we would have stayed with the first balcony cabin.

 

Having said this, the cabin was very nice including a walk-in closet! We were only able to fill about 50% of the storage space with our belongings. Actually, we preferred this Jr. Suite to a Grand Suite that we had booked in May of this year (same ship, Freedom of the Seas).

Majesty of the Seas

August 2016 - Majesty of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Spoiled by larger ships

I am used to larger ships like Freedom and Oasis. On sea days the pool areas are too crowded and the ship is too small to explore. We had free Voom internet service and we were very satisfied with the speed.

Freedom of the Seas

May 2016 - Freedom of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

A Grand Suite

We were in a Grand Suite celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The suite was very spacious and the bathroom, including a full size tub, was huge in comparison to a regular cabin. The plumbing was horrible. I was nearly scalded in the shower when my wife turned the water on in the vanity. The vanity water pressure was very low and the "cold" water was almost hot at times. They do treat you very good in a suite with lots of perks, but at the end of the day, I would rather spend the same amount of money and get twice the number of days in a balcony room.

"Inaugural Cruise"

Inaugural Cruise

We were lucky to be able to sail on the inaugural 4 day shakedown cruise before they started the regular 7 day cruises. Since this was the first time paying customers sailed on this ship, it was a big deal. Crowds of people lined the banks as we left and a fire fighting boat gave us a water salute as we left the port.

 

Since this was the first cruise we were expecting some problems and there were a few, but we were so fascinated by this huge ship that we didn't really care. We're sailing Oasis again this December and really looking forward to it.

wt4y's Tips

Freedom of the Seas Freedom of the Seas - Given the choice, take a Jr. Suite over a Grand Suite. We felt it was better laid out.
Oasis of the Seas Oasis of the Seas - Bring comfortable shoes when sailing on Oasis class ships. There is artwork everywhere and the ships are huge. You'll want to take in as much as you can. These things are as big as some cities and you'll get lots of exercise.
