Freedom of the Seas 2011: Freedom of the Seas Cruise Review by cruisegma

Freedom of the Seas 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The pools and hot tubs were superb. This is the first cruise we've been on where the pools and hot tubs were always open. This is a great feature. And these pools and tubs were very clean. The water was crystal clear with minimal smell of chlorine. The hot tubs were actually hot. Another plus is the adults only pool and tubs. The only negative to the pool area were the revolving doors onto the deck. I realize they stop the wind but half the time they didn't work and the other half of the time they just got jammed up with people not understanding the mechanism. A very poor design.
The cruise director, Graham Seymour, is a great asset. He is funny, talented and approachable. The shows were wonderful. The entertainment in the lounges was so-so. On the plus side was the piano man in the Schooner Lounge. Mike McCabe was very entertaining. Although his singing left a little to be desired, his piano playing was wonderful and he was very comical. A large crowd every night attested to this.
We had a great time on the Freedom of the Seas. I was very happy to return to a Royal Caribbean ship. I like set dining and individual tipping. Less
