Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Freedom of the Seas a midwest winter escape!
This being our 2nd cruise in 10 years I was anxious to see what had changed. I was not disappointed. Our cabin was perfect for 3 of us. Loved the balcony that looked out the aft of the ship and the layout of the room was wide instead of narrow. Never felt like we were in a box.

There were several times where it rained during the cruise so instead of going inside we put on our swimsuits and got in one of 6 hot tubs to enjoy the warm air which we had escaped to from the cold midwest winter.

My daughter who is 9 joined the Adventure Ocean group and loved it!! The staff was great and they kept the kids busy the whole time she was there. We went to give her a message one day and she came over mad because she thought we were going to make her leave. Great Job with this group RCCL!

We attended the ice show one day. It is amazing what the skaters can do on a moving rink. Great dancing unfortunately the ice was not totally set in one spot and it caused a few falls but they kept on without hesitation.

Drew Thomas Magic was a show you would expect to pay big bucks to see. I am still trying to figure out how he was able to do all the tricks. The Royal Caribbean dancers and singers add a whole new dimension to this show as well.

Flow Rider is awesome! One night we paid for a lesson since we wanted a little more guidance before sacrificing our bodies to the 35mph waters. The staff were very helpful. The next day all of us were boogie boarding and my husband even braved the surf board as well.

We ate breakfast in the Windjammer just so we could get in and out without waiting for anyone. The nights we ate in the dining room using My Time Dining we ended up getting the same table each night by the window with the same wait staff which was nice. Food was excellent! One night when we felt like staying dressed casual we went to Johnny Rockets. You get unlimited fries and onion rings while you wait for your main course. It was a fun atmosphere.

It was fun to meet up with other Cruise Critic members the first couple days and chat with them over the course of the cruise.

We did the luggage valet offered on the ship and highly recommend this if you have to fly out of Orlando. When we debarked we got to walk past all the people standing around waiting to find their luggage. Just jumped on the shuttle and then when in Orlando we were free to wander without having to check in or haul luggage around.

Highly recommend Freedom of the Seas!!
