We were joined on this cruise by several friends and family members to help celebrate our 25th anniversary. Most of them had not cruised before, we had many times. I'm always pleased with Royal Caribbean and this ship was breath taking. It was huge, and had so many extras, we choose Promenade rooms and really enjoyed watching the street parties from our room. The bay windows really helped you feel like the room was bigger that it actually was. We have normally picked ocean view or balcony rooms and were unsure at first, but really enjoyed it, other than it was difficult to know if it was day or night. The entertain was grand and our favorite was watching the cruise director's show each morning, telling you of the days events. The man was just too funny and throughout the day we kept repeating lines from the show. The food is always great and our service is always constant.
Favorites while on the ship was the Bull & Bear pub, great beers and the service was great, Penchang, Deanna and Fillmore were great! It felt like your favorite hometown pub, from the moment you walked in! Great views of the street parties too! And we liked that they had an adult only pool, although 16 years of age is not what I call an adult, should be 18 and older in my option. The hot tubs in adult only section were great too!
Since Freedom is their second largest ship I'm now spoiled to go anything less in size! It was truly a memorable trip, thanks Royal Caribbean staff you are all the best!
