We have sailed the Allure and Oasis 3 and 4 years ago respectively. This past September 5 we sailed the Oasis and Found it very disappointing Staff and cleanliness. The Freedom surpassed the Oasis hands down. The ship is beautiful and ... Read more

Decided to go on my first cruise with my Mom and 3 sisters. The ship was chosen because of the dates available and the other reviews. It lived up to every last one of them. The ship seemed huge the first day - and not so huge on the last ... Read more

We are frequent cruisers and this was our 42nd Royal Caribbean cruise and 108th cruise in total. We have always loved the Freedom class ships for their size, appearance, ease of getting around and amount of public space. We were very ... Read more

This was our first time on Freedom, we've been on Adventure three times. I found Freedom a bigger version of Adventure. To me it seemed our balcony room and balcony was even bigger and we booked the same carptagory we always book. Our room ... Read more

On the day of embarkation they said not to arrive before 12:30. The traffic getting there was terrible because of the security gate. It took us about 45 minutes to get in there. If you have to take a taxi they charge .40 for sitting ... Read more

My primary reason for cruising is to visit ports with great snorkeling. Grand Caymans and Cozumel have some of the best reefs in the Caribbean. I wasn't disappointed this trip at all with either of my excursions. Embarkation was quick ... Read more

This was a great cruise, got a great price and the ship was awesome! We were on the Allure in May, this ship was just a scaled back version to us. 4300+ passengers, but big enough to not feel crowded, and not overwhelming. We docked next ... Read more

This was my first time on a Royal Caribbean cruise and I was traveling with my husband and his family. I would say that the rooms were larger than most and very nice. The bathrooms were smaller than most and the shower stall (although ... Read more

Went on this ship to celebrate a birthday and Halloween. It was an amazing experience on Halloween. Many of the passengers had their costumes and participated on the promenade parade. We had an incredible time worth of the money spent for ... Read more

This cruise was with a family reunion group, 11 people. My impressions were very much influenced by the ship's size. This is the largest ship I have been on, and would choose a smaller one for future cruises. I chose a Promeade ... Read more

When we were looking for a ship to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, we knew we wanted a Royal Caribbean ship. We had sailed on the Oasis for our 25th and decided to downsize to check it out. We loved the Freedom of the Seas. It is ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on Freedom of the Seas. The staff was terrific and efficient and friendly, too. The ship was very clean and our balcony was one of the largest that we've had. We enjoyed the entertainment, with the musical ... Read more

Our family of five booked Freedom for a week, one balcony and one inside right across the hall. Great selection. The three kids (52,54& 55) and my wife and I did separate some but found ourselves bonding as well. Ports were ... Read more

This was our fifth time on the Freedom, it was at one time our favorite ships, the food quality and selection has suffered horribly in the cut backs. The Casino is unapproachable due to the smoking which is not monitored. The Diamond Club ... Read more
