Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Freedom of the Seas Jun 12 2011
This was my first sailing with RCCL and had high expectations after reading all the reviews and I was not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, there were so much to do and see that we had to keep reminding ourselves to slow down, after all we are on a vacation. The crew members are very friendly and helpful. Meals at Windjammer Cafe (we went there for breakfast and lunch) offered a wide selection of delicious food. Dinner at the main dining room was marvelous and service was great. Our waiter (Steve) and assistant waiter (Joni) were very attentive and friendly, always a smile on their faces.

The cruise director (Graham) is a hoot, he is hilarious. He and his staff provides great entertainment for the cruise. Remember to catch the ice show and the entertainment shows in Arcadia. The Dreamworks parade in the Royal Promenade was wonderful. Shopping was always fun at the Promenade. A great time with Freedom of the Seas.

If you can, bring an underwater camera with you on the cruise, a decision you will not regret. If you think you want to try your luck in ice skating, you will need to bring a pair of long pants. No pants, no skates.

There is always confusion on the gangway as we leave for our land excursion. The crew need to get their information correct before passing onto passengers. At one port, we were told we need a photo ID (driver's license or passport) for all adults along with our sea pass to return. Well, no one asked or checked our photo ID. At another port, we were told we need our passport, and the driver's license will not work, if we are to leave the ship. Again, all we needed was our sea pass. In other words, brinrg your seapass and one form of photo ID with you when you disembark, just in case.
