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

Fantastic time on the cruise. Dining experience in the main dining room was the best we had ever had. Rooms were very clean along with the rest of the ship. We travelled as a group of 6, 4 adults and 2 kids (12 & 9). As adults we felt that Royal Caribbean does a very good job of engaging everyone and getting them involved in activities and events to keep them entertained.

My kids did not feel the same way about the kids programs. We signed our 9 year old up for the program first day, but every time we went by there they did not seem to be doing anything that was engaging or enticing for her to participate in. Our 12 yr attempted to enter the areas designated for her a few times, but the way Royal groups the teens (12-17), every time she tried to go in and make friends she was intimidated by all of the older kids in there. She tried multiple times throughout the cruise. She said that she never even saw anyone close to her age.

The only other onboard complaint was that as the week went by the caribbean band that played poolside seemed to turn the volume up on the amps a little louder each day. Mid week it was to the point that we had to lean into each others ear and almost yell to talk to the person beside you. It got to the point that we would not even use the pool areas.

Everyone loved the rock wall and flow rider. We rented the flow rider out twice because the lines were so long during open sessions.

Ports of calls were good. Labadee was beautiful, but the people selling their wares were pushing and too aggressive for me. They actually drove me away instead of bringing me in to the stands. Same thing for the port in Cozumel, just not quite as bad
