Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Freedom of the Seas - A Beautiful Ship
Since we had been on the Allure of the Seas, my husband and I wanted to see what this ship was like. The Allure was just awesome! Freedom, slightly smaller, is very similar in many ways, and we were very pleased. We were in cabin 6398, balcony room with slight obstruction on right side of balcony. It was less expensive than the regular balcony room, and proved to be of no problem whatsoever. The room was very comfortable. The stateroom steward's English was barely adequate, but he was most attentive and kept us supplied with plenty of towels. We gave him $20 on the front end - and asked him to keep linens in bath at all times which he did. Another $20 came at end of cruise, and of course, the regular tip charged automatically by the ship. All the crew & staff were extremely courteous and efficient.

Our main reason for cruising is relaxation, the entertainment, and the food. We have been to the Caribbean many, many times, so we don't take the tours - been there, done that - the ship is the destination.

Entertainment was excellent. Compared to other ships, better than average. Food was good, not great. We dined at both specialty restaurants - a disappointment. The servings are huge and the food just good, not gourmet. The best meal was in the MDR: lobster & steak combo. We selected anytime dining, dined early, and never had to wait. The desserts were very attractive, well presented as was other food, but seldom outstanding. None were as good as the chocolate melting cake on Carnival.

Embarkation was really efficient. We didn't carry our bags off, yet we were driving home by 8:00AM. All in all, it was a wonderful cruise.
