Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Wonderful experience

The best thing about the cruise was the fact that, even as huge as it is, you could still find a quiet place to relax, read a book or just chill out. The promanade is the focal point and it is a sight to see: lined with shops and bars and at night there is enterainment. The ice show is a must see as is the parade on the last night at sea. My room steward was great, attentive and friendly. Our group used the "My Time" dining option and it wworked well for us. The downside was that all the server shows, etc., were two decks below and we were kinda left out. Our waiter and assistant knew our names and took real good care of us. Note: no escargo!! and there will be none until mid-Novemnber and then only one day.

We took one excursion, a tour of St John's. From reading he brochure, it gave the impression that we would have both a sea and land tour...not so. Only a quick ride around 1/2 the island and then three hours to walk around. Not recommended.

We did find a nice bar, Woody's, that served good food and was also the place where island resident Toby Keith would show up (not the day we were there).

St Maarten was our last stop and we spent a part of he day walking around. Pleasant people and very friendly. Nice bar called the Blue Bitch with decent food. All in all a good place to visit.

I highly recommend the Freedom of the Seas. They do have an excellent children's program from what I heard.
