Freedom of the Seas
Destination: Western Caribbean
Port Canaveral is a great port!. Embarkation was very easy and fast. We had about a 10 minute wait before we boarded. Our cabin was not ready until 1:00pm so we went went on a tour of the ship. It was just as beautiful as it was when it was new!
Our cabin was ready promptly at 1:00pm . The cabin was very roomy. Lots of storage. Loved the doors in the shower. It is much better than the shower curtain. We are Diamond members of the Crown and Anchor Society and they had many nice amenities. We ate every night in the NDR. We had my-time dining at 5:45PM. The waiter and the assistant waiter were some of the best we have ever had. The food was very good with lots of variety. There were many children on our cruise and RCI did a very nice job of entertaining them. The ship is very up-beat with lots to do. The entertainment was excellent! We went to a Beatles show which was the best we have ever seen. The only criticism I have is that they took the theater away and put a movie screen More by the pool. No one seemed to watch anything out there.
The ports we visited were very good and easy to get around. We had perfect weather! Disembarkation was the easiest ever. We had express disembarkation and were in our car and on the road by 7:30AM. Thank you Royal Caribbean for another great cruise. Less

Cabin review: D36698 Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
We were in cabin 6698 . This room was about 3 from the very back. We never heard any noise . it was one of the best cabins we have ever had. The room was bigger than expected. We had a very nice large sofa, a flat screen TV and the beds were very comfortable. The linens were so soft and comfy. There was lots of storage and the large suit cases fit nicely under the bed. The bathroom was your standard cruise ship bathroom however the shower curtain was replaced with shower doors. Much better. The balcony was not as large as some but was quite adequate. The room was very clean and no unpleasant smell at all.Read All Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (D3) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
We have been to Cozumel many times and it is a very nice port. We really did not do anything there except walk around do a little shopping.
The port was excellent!. The people were very friendly and there was no hassle at all. There was a little bit of everything there.
It was a real pleasure going to the Grand Cayman because we have never been there when we were the only ship there. The last time we were there 6 ships were in. It was a zoo. I think it is very expensive there. We went to a restaurant and I got a coke for $6.00 US. We are not fond of Grand Caymen. We had to tender in to the port and they were excellent. Never had to wait.
We did not get off of the ship in Labadee this time. We have been there many times and it is very nice and the Buffet is very good. The last time we were there our granddaughter was with us and she had a wonderful time. it was nice to stay on the ship. We had it all to ourselves.
