Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Family Interior Cruise
This was my second cruise, and my first with my family. We ended up in sailing in a family interior stateroom that accommodates 6 fairly well. We booked this cruise mainly for the Dreamworks experience and pricepoint.

The cruise started off a bit bumpy. The first few crew members we came into contact with were rude and unable to properly help us. We then had a problem acquiring a port a crib that was supposed to be waiting in our room for us. Thankfully our stateroom attendant went out of her way to ensure we ended up with the crib we were promised.

Things did smooth out, thankfully! The service on ship was pretty good everywhere throughout the ship. Almost all crew were very polite and cordial. The food was pretty good, but slightly less impressive than I remember from my previous cruise. Our wait staff was great.

We did decide that the Dreamworks experience is not worth being a key factor in deciding on this cruise. It seemed to be too hard to plan your day on when to see characters or entertainment. We expected there to be more themed events or entertainment.

Overall the cruise was a good family vacation and we plan to cruise with Royal again.
