We hadn't been on an RCI ship in 15 years, and our expectations were high, yet tempered after a recent Carnival cruise. Overall the cruise was excellent and we highly recommend RCI and Freedom. She's become our favorite ship. ... Read more

From other cruisers we heard that Royal Caribbean was one of the best. Not one word was true about this. This was our 6th. cruise and were previously 3 times on HAL, one on Carnival and one Princess (our very best so far). First of all RC ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had holiday'd in California and then across to Orlando, Florida for our action packed theme park holiday and our travel agent suggested this cruise to end our adventures. Since we had travelled so far to get ... Read more

The reviews on this ship were very high so I wanted to give Royal another try. Unfortunately the service on this ship was not as good as we have had on other ships. The staff genuinely seemed upset all the time. But first things first, ... Read more

We choose FOS for the activities aboard and the size. We are loyal RCCL cruisers. We've sailed the Allure and 7 of the smaller ships but not the FOS yet. The ports were not of interest. It was a 50th Anniversary cruise and our 14 ... Read more

We had a Jr. Suite on level 10, rear, port side. Just fabulas. A real walk in closet! Room was large and we actually liked it better than the Grand Suite we had on this ship in May 2016. Great ship this was our 3rd time to sal FOS. The ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ship and the embarkation port. Freedom is an elegant ship, the largest in the world for a while. The ship has a standard layout - Theater and lounges forward, Casino in the middle and a 3 story dining room that ... Read more

This was our 8th cruise on Royal and the first on the Freedom. It's big but there are enough venues available that it did not seem as crowded as some of the smaller ships. The rooms were well maintained and very clean. Our cabin attendent ... Read more

Our overall experience was excellent. Our cabin (8632) was in a very convenient location. It was a great size with a small couch and a good-sized balcony that was very private. The ship was easy to get around and had so many amenities. ... Read more

Living in Florida, we like the convenience of cruising out of Port Canaveral. Being a Diamond member with RC, the Freedom of the Seas is also our favorite ship. Overall, we had a good time on the cruise and great weather and smooth seas. ... Read more

I would rate this in the minus if I could. The cruise started badly with Royal caribbean's choice of Airline BA leaving all our luggage behind in Gatwick. The efforts by both BA and RCI in getting the luggage to us could only be ... Read more

Redeeming RCL Visa points, we were very limited in what we could choose from. It was average. The room 8396 was at the back of the boat. The walk was long to do anything but it was quiet. Overall room was acceptable but Jessica the ... Read more

We picked this cruise primarily because of the ports of call but also because we had sailed on this ship before and enjoyed it. Generally a really great cruise, good ports ( although we were a little disappointed with Jamacia), Grand ... Read more
