Freedom of the Seas Cruise Review by larry_kak
- Sail Date: June 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
The Freedom is such a great family ship and we saw multi generation families everywhere. It is just a great ship for young to old, something to do for everyone except that I would point out that we made friends with a family with children 18-20 and they felt that for that age group they were excluded from some adult activities and excluded from younger activities also.We were in both of the specialty restaurants and loved both of them. Chops is absolutely FABULOUS and Portofino is lovely also. We were on my time dining and liked it except for the fact that because we were just two we were initially placed in a table configuration that had us in the middle between two other couples. I was requested a change and it was accommodated.
We used the health club and loved it, utilized spa services, the ice show was great and should not be missed. The late night Rock Britannia MUST NOT BE MISSED. All of the entertainment was great. We also loved the music trivia in the Schooner bar.
We felt that service levels were consistently high throughout the cruise. I am an early morning person and love the early morning solitude of a run on deck 12, and even there always a friendly "Good Morning".
The process of disembarkation could not have been smoother. We waited in a special area and quickly left the ship to a waiting car rental van back to Orlando.

Culinary TourWe booked a cooking class through RCI and loved it. They took us to Playa Maya and we worked as a team to cook and then eat an appetizer, entree, and desert. We would do it again, it was so much fun.View All 73 Culinary Tour Reviews
FalmouthIn Falmouth we stayed in close proximity to the ship. There is a trolley tour that you can take to see the Falmouth area for 15.00 and we did that. The tour guide was fabulous, spoke good English, and we enjoyed the tour.View All 1,150 Falmouth Cruise Port Reviews

Island TourWe booked Cayman Safari and saw the island from a historical perspective and an island perspective. We had a native lunch, stopped at a local fruit stand for a smoothie, toured the botanical garden, visited the highest point on the island, saw fabulous vacation homes. It was a great tour.View All 145 Island Tour Reviews
LabadeeI prefer Labadee over Coco Cay. It is larger, more to do and also the Freedom is able to dock. If you need to go back to the ship and return it is a simple process. We loved watched the Zip line and enjoyed the beach.View All 1,455 Labadee Cruise Port Reviews
