Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
First time Royal Caribbean cruiser.

We arrived at Port Canaveral 1.5 hours before departure: absolutely no lines -- breezed through check in. Our room was on the tenth floor, one level below the Windjammer and pools. Our room, a junior suite, was perfect. Oversized, larger balcony with 4 chairs. The walk-in closet was perfect. We stored our luggage in the closet as well as most of our clothes. There was a sofa and a chair with an ottoman. Ended up having people in our cabin several times during the week before or after other events.

The cabin steward was excellent, as well as our servers in the 5th level dining room. We did "my time" dining. It was convenient as long as you called ahead for reservations. We would have enjoyed sitting with others, but it didn't work out. Food was very good. Previous cruise lines we had travelled did not offer the variety nor quality of food. Enjoyed lunch at Johnny Rockets two times.

I purchased a premium liquor package for the week and believe it was a fair price. Top shelf liquors and beer, included "house" wines which were the only disappointment. They should upgrade the wine list or offer more than two reds. Several bartenders were capable but not friendly. And it wasn't because they were busy. Language may have been a barrier.

Overall experience was excellent. We loved the wide corridors, the layout of the three-story dining room, and the attitude of the staff. Think we have found our new favorite cruise line!
