We chose this cruise for the ship and the embarkation port. Freedom is an elegant ship, the largest in the world for a while. The ship has a standard layout - Theater and lounges forward, Casino in the middle and a 3 story dining room that ... Read more

Our overall experience was excellent. Our cabin (8632) was in a very convenient location. It was a great size with a small couch and a good-sized balcony that was very private. The ship was easy to get around and had so many amenities. ... Read more

Living in Florida, we like the convenience of cruising out of Port Canaveral. Being a Diamond member with RC, the Freedom of the Seas is also our favorite ship. Overall, we had a good time on the cruise and great weather and smooth seas. ... Read more

I would rate this in the minus if I could. The cruise started badly with Royal caribbean's choice of Airline BA leaving all our luggage behind in Gatwick. The efforts by both BA and RCI in getting the luggage to us could only be ... Read more

Redeeming RCL Visa points, we were very limited in what we could choose from. It was average. The room 8396 was at the back of the boat. The walk was long to do anything but it was quiet. Overall room was acceptable but Jessica the ... Read more

We had a great time. Our cabin was spotless - thank you Nola. The service was excellent and the ship was very clean overall. Food is always subjective but we felt it was okay - not fabulous but certainly good. It was comparable to any of ... Read more

We picked this cruise primarily because of the ports of call but also because we had sailed on this ship before and enjoyed it. Generally a really great cruise, good ports ( although we were a little disappointed with Jamacia), Grand ... Read more

We were with siblings and in-laws and it was an amazing group. We had a blast because we all enjoy each others company and we never get to do things like this. The ship was old and ragged looking. I couldn't find a single employee that ... Read more

I've been cruising for a long time. We've been on the larger ships and the smaller ships and really prefer the smaller ships (they feel more like cruising and not shopping in a "mall" - just my opinion!). It's been awhile since ... Read more

Had a very nice time. This was a last minute booking so we were not too picky about the itinerary or the ship as we just wanted to get away. We booked a guaranteed ocean-view cabin. We were assigned a cabin on deck 2. Was not thrilled with ... Read more
