We went on Freedom OTS for a 3 night cruise to the Bahamas - my first post-COVID cruise. The public spaces on the ship are beautiful. The dining room, Windjammer, sun decks, etc. are all recently renovated and very visually appealing and clean. I am not sure if it was because of COVID capacity, time of year, or the design of the ship, but there was always lots of space in public spaces. 4/5 of the ...

Cabin: Cabin was decently sized but felt very outdated. Also the air conditioner struggled to keep the room cool. Dining: There was a decent amount of dining options available. Giovanni's was by far the best while Izumi's Sushi was a major let down. The bars were all very good, especially The Lime & Coconut and Vintages. Embarkation: Very fast and easy. We did sail during the ...

This was my 33 RCCL cruise, and my first time on Freedom of the Seas. This was a rebooked "casino" cruise from a cancelled 2020 cruise.The cruise from Terminal A at the Miami cruiseport. Getting onto the ship was a nightmare. Due to flight schedule, I wound up arriving at 10 am for a 1 pm "scheduled" check in time. There were MANY passenger who had to wait OUTSIDE in the Miami heat and humidity. ...

We joined our close friends (group of 13) on this Birthday celebration cruise. 3 in our party were celebrating birthdays. We flew in to San Juan a few days early and stayed at the Sheraton in Old San Juan. It was an amazing hotel. A little pricey, but the location was well worth it. The bar in the hotel has great food and drinks. You will likely have to wait to check in as rooms are not available ...

We choose Freedom because of the sail ports and dates. A group of 18 people got together to take the cruise and celebrate New Years Eve! The New Years eve parties were awesome. Food was very good and you never went hungry. We were in a balcony cabin which was very nice and had plenty of room to move around and store our clothes. The entertainment was awesome - the cruise staff went ...

This is my tenth cruise and my wife’s ninth. We celebrated our 20th anniversary on this cruise. We wanted to go somewhere warm that my wife hasn’t been to. We flew into Puerto Rico 2 days early to explore the island. Had a fantastic time. Uber makes getting around a breeze now. Check in was a breeze. We were in the ship in about 20 minutes. We chose my time dining and really enjoyed our table ...

I have not had a cruise in four years and was so ready to have a great time. I had a good time but not too much on the ship. I had a lot of firsts on this cruise. We were in room 7566......DO NOT STAY IN THIS ROOM IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO MOLD!!! As soon as we walked in the room my nose started to burn. After investigating, when you walk out the cabin door you can look to the right and see ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We had never been to the ABC islands and sailing out of San Juan was a plus! Embarkation and disembarkation were super easy. We have never walked off before, we were at the airport so early, we couldn't check our bags for our flight! Ship notes: The service on the Freedom was amazing, except for one snafu on our cabin (discussed below). We ...

I picked this cruise for the date and the itinerary. The price was great. We spent the day before looking around San Juan and loved Old San Juan. This was a special trip with my 2 teenage daughters. Last year I took my younger daughter on our first cruise. Getting my other girl to go with us was a joy. After hearing all about our cruise she was excited to join us this time. Freedom didn't ...
