Nice ship but large: Freedom of the Seas Cruise Review by aamons
Overall Member Rating
Nice ship but large
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Food in main dining room was excellent. Food in Windjammer was not quite as good. Only one desert serving island at all meals and they kept running out of deserts with long delays to get new ones. Carving stations were not always manned and again they ran out there also. French fries were wonderfully crisp and salads were good and plentiful. Other main problems were after shows having 1,000+ waiting for elevators and people wanting to get into shows blocking elevator doors from closing due to crowding at Arcadia entrance. Cabin (balcony) was very good and cabin steward was excellent - we did not know that towels could be folded into the animal shapes that he did - hanging orangutan (or baboon) and hanging bat were the best. Imported (not ship's company) singers were lame to poor - we walked out of show after 20 minutes. Extra charge luggage valet program (you put luggage in passageway and pick it up at destination airport) was well worth it and we will use it again. Smooth boarding of ship before sailing and smooth debarking process. People tended to put towels on deck chairs and then disappear for hours. soft serve ice cream on deck 11 was wonderful - we ate too much of it. St. Martin had 6 ships tied up at pier. Overall, pleasant cruise experience. Less

Very nice cabin. Lots of storage space. Balcony was great, but dividers between balconies rattled a bit. Cabin steward did wonders with folding towels into animal shapes when preparing cabin for night.
First with RCI
Nice Tour in May in the Medite...
