Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Very Nice Cruise!!
Check in was fairly smooth, and went quickly. I think we waited all of like 20 minutes or so in line. We boarded around 1:30 and our room was already ready, which was nice. Outside of a few kids running up and down the halls during the middle

of the day, cabin was great. We were in the belly are of the ship, so

our balcony sticks out a little bit from the ship. You could see the

side of the ship easily. We were close to the elevator which was nice.

It really wasn't as noisy as I thought it would be with being that

close to the elevator. Overall it was good with plenty of room for the

two of us. I did get the ocassional wiff of smoke from a smoker in the

area, but that was usually in the morning and maybe once or twice all


This ship is large! It is also very impressive. I cannot say enough about RCCL. Everything runs like a well oiled machine. Our cruise director was hilarious. The Captain was really hard to understand over the intercom. I almost never knew what he was saying. Dining room staff was excellent as always. Service was exceptional. We were a little dissapointed with our stateroom attendant, as we saw him the first day, and maybe once the rest of the cruise. And somehow my wifes hair dryer ended up with a chunk of plastic broken on it? For as few kids as we had on the boat, we ended up with some rowdy ones on our floor. They would run up and down the hallway at certain times of the day, but never at night, so no worries there. And when you are rarely in your stateroom it is not a big deal. There are so many things to do on this ship that you cannot do them all. Even with two days at sea! Decent itinerary, although we had a great time in Jamaica,(see below) I heard quite a few horror stories.

Disembarking was great, using the express feature we waited a short time and were then in the car on our way home.
