Having traveled primarily on Celebrity, we were a bit concerned about what our experience would be on a more family oriented vacation with our kids and grand kids. We decided in advance that this was really all about the kids.
However, the experience for them and us, was way above our expectations.
Freedom of the Seas is an extremely clean and well maintained ship. The staff is very personable, helpful and happy. The ship is a nice size.
Ports of call were Cocoa Cay, St. Thomas and St. Martin. All nice The three days as sea were wonderful with lots to do. Rock Wall, Flow Rider,Ice Skating
The Dream Works experience was wonderful for all ages, including us. Our cabin attendant was fantastic as was our waiter and the manager of our dining room. The buffet staff were wonderful. The cruise director and activities director were fun everywhere.
Although there were 500 plus children on ship, everything was orderly.
The Jumbo-tron screen was fun as were the "character parade."
Royal Caribbean really has their act together from embarkation to debarkation and baggage collection.
As elite members of Celebrity, we were afforded Diamond Club amenities on Freedom. The private lounge and friendly Diamond club representative was a wonderful "perk."
We would definitely sail on Royal Caribbean again.
