Ship Facts: Freedom of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Freedom of the Seas Deck Plans
Eastern Caribbean
Went with friends so many good tips to give us guidance on what to expect. Check in was not all that friendly and left a sense of apprehension over the possibility this was RCL's mode of operation. After that, everything was fabulous.

Staff could not do enough to make sure our experience was the best ever. Our dining room waiter and his assistant were second to none and made dining everyday an experience to look forward to. Regarding the ship - absolutely beautiful, like a floating first class hotel. Coco Cay was a bust but given that the weather was not cooperative, it was okay. Would rather have a true port of call and not the company's private island. Essentially a seven night cruise boiled down to two ports of call, St Thomas and St Maarten. Both were okay but St Thomas was shopping for the most part and St Maarten was a bit disappointing but that was probably due to our not knowing anything about those two ports.

The difference between this and an absolutely fabulous cruise would be an additional port of call. Getting off the ship was a breeze and so efficient. It took but one hour from the time our number was called on the ship to getting into our car at the Radisson. Way to go RCL and airlines should take note. All in all a very wonderful first time cruise.
