Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Fresh from Freedom of the Seas!
Our Balcony room was fantastic. It was roomy, and smelled very clean and fresh upon entering. This particular room was the first room in the front of the ship on the left side, so the view was great having no neighbors on one side of us. Pat, our Stateroom attendant was sweet. She cleaned up after us, even folding our laundry if it was left on the floor. Our room was cleaned and attended to 3 times a day, fresh ice, towels, sheets, etc.

Pool area was nice, but crowded. The pool water after a few days was kind of nasty. Cloudy with foamy dirt bubbles on the top. We only went into the pool once because of this. With the breeze we really didn't need to be in the water. The hot tubs were ALWAYS clean and hot!!

The food: Well, we give it a C minus all around in Windjammer and Main Dining. Nice presentation in MDR, but tasteless, not enough flavor. If we didn't like it, we sent it back and got another entree to try, as there were several to choose from every night. Our Waiters and Wait Staff were lovely people who treated us with the utmost courtesy & respect. Rose, Didi and "the Sippy, Sippy Guy", Joseph we love you all. For a wonderful lunch skip Windjammer on sail days for MDR salad bar...best salad ever. Breakfast in MDR is better than WJ any day but most days were not up early enough to partake. Room service was quick, but the coffee wasn't very hot.

Ports: CoCo Cay: C minus. Seagulls are aggressive especially when the food got served. We did not eat after seeing a woman get attacked by seagulls who wanted her hamburger. I also got pooped on as the seagulls are everywhere and low flying. Snorkeling is boring here; nothing to see. Not enough chairs, drinks were not tasty and very overpriced.

St. Thomas: A. Beautiful Island. We did the sail-away excursion to Honeymoon Bay and Christmas Cove with BONES which was fun.

St. Maartin: A. Mountains, scenic, crystal clear turquoise waters. We did the Extreme Zip Line at Loterie Farms.

Overall 7 day cruise rating: B Plus. Would definitely go again
