Great Cruise on Freedom of The Seas!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
We were very disappointed we weren't able to make it to Coco Cay because of the weather, but we thoroughly enjoyed St. Thomas and St. Martin. We'd go back on this ship and destination again.
We did The Captain Nautica's Snorkeling in St Thomas and it was awesome! I recommend you bring lots of film for the shipwrecked island location, lots of great fish and coral reefs. Very laid back cruise, on a fun power boat, perfect for families.
Loterie Tree Farm Zip Lining in St. Martin was definitely the highlight of our trip!! The workout wasn't too strenuous for us (I work out about 3 days a week, husband doesn't and we had no trouble keeping up). We were even given an impromptu tour of the island on our way there and back, which was very informative. They said to not bring any valuables or anything to carry. I would recommend a disposable camera to carry in a zipped pocket if possible, sure wished we'd brought one anyway. All we have are memories and it was a fantastic day! We'd go back again!! Such fun!
We realized we didn't have enough time to do an excursion on each island and include beach time. With these 2 islands having some of the top beaches in the world, this was our only regret. The ship seemed to leave the ports quite early (late afternoon). If we're able to hit these islands again, we'd choose beach time on our next opportunity!
We would choose this ship again, was a wonderful vacation! Less
Cabin review: PR7609 Promenade Stateroom
Great promenade stateroom, felt a bit cramped with 2 people. The bathrooms are always so tiny....but met our needs. Took quite a walk to get to it, next time would want to be a bit closer to the elevators. Loved the fact that we could see the parades/shows from our room, when held in the promenade area, without any obstructions!Read All Promenade Stateroom (PR) Reviews >>
