So much potential, so little delivery: Freedom of the Seas Cruise Review by cert4me

So much potential, so little delivery
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The proportion of staff to management seems out of balance with the result the working staff seem hounded by the management. Never have I had any other cruise line employee take items I am considering buying and put them into a box for storage "because the sale is over" at the direction of the boss standing over them. The deck manager, again someone with strips on his shirt, was upset the passengers were moving the deck chairs around and the deck was looking like a "refugee camp". Really, passengers moving chairs generates that More level of vulgar response? Such an over the top response makes me question if the cruise line is more interested in their passengers enjoyment or the strict adherence the cruise lines plan.
On a more positive note-the cabin stewards and staff in the WindJammer cafe were wonderful. Helpful, cheerful and anxious to fulfill whatever request we had. I really wish we had the option to send our dining room tips to the people who took such good care of us all week.
Probably not going to become a fan of this cruise line or spend my money in their corporation again. With approximately 12-15 cruises I know where I am comfortable and I want no part of helping people with authority push others around. Less
Cabin review: PR7589 Promenade Stateroom
Promenade 7589-equal distance to either the front or back bank of elevators. Fairly quiet hallway. Plan on walking miles everyday to get to the Windjammer or the Arcadia theater. Mid ship but still very aware of the roll when the waves get high. Window seat to watch people below on the Promenade is great! Space is well used but if you need to plug something on the bedside table bring an extension cord of at least 9 feet.Read All Promenade Stateroom (PR) Reviews >>
