Freedom of the Seas Cruise Review by kratescape
- Sail Date: December 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Grand Suite
Our suite was nice, actually bigger than the hotel room. It is located just in front of the whirlpool. You could occassionally hear chairs being moved, but nothing disturbing.
We ate breakfast and lunch in the Windjammer. It was usually good. They always have a lot to offer, so if you get something you don't like, just go back and get something else. We had the 8 pm seating in the dining room. I had emailed the dining room to request a table by the window and we were surprised that not only was it a table buy the window, but also a rare table for two! Again food was good, several time we couldn't choose one specific appetizer so we had two. And as always, if you don't like what you've ordered, they will bring you something else.
Activities and entertainment. Wow, always something to do or see. We caught most of the shows. Don't miss the magic show and stay for the whole thing. It seems like it's over but it's not a lot of people got up and left. Also the Ice Show is a must see. It was hard to do everything, so we'll have to make another trip.
Ports of call were all like we've read in reviews. Labadee, we were in a suite so we accessed Barefoot Beach. It was very relaxing, just floated in the water all day. Jamaica, that was our actual anniversary, we walked around the port and ventured outside the gate. It was just like we've read in other reviews. Book an excursion if you want to do something there. We did a couples massage on board. That was wonderful. In Grand Cayman we booked an excursion outside the ship to swim with the stingrays. That was fun. The last was Cozumel, we booked an excursion through the ship and it was also a lot of fun.
We had a great time, we relaxed a lot and will definitely go back with the kids next time.

Amazing Cozumel RaceWe had so much fun doing the Amazing Race. We got to see a lot of different things that we would not have done otherwise. We'll do this one again!View All 33 Amazing Cozumel Race Reviews
FalmouthIt is everything that you've read. We walked outside the gates knowing what to expect. We recommend booking an excursion if you want to see Jamaica. It's still up and coming, but it's still hard to have all those people wanting you to look, buy their stuff or take their tour.View All 1,151 Falmouth Cruise Port Reviews

SnorkelingWe booked a tour through Moby Dick Tours. We had a great time. The guys are great, stingrays are awesome. The recommended Rackum's for lunch, that was great as wellView All 242 Snorkeling Reviews
LabadeeWe loved just relaxing and doing nothing at Labadee. We were in a suite so we had access to Barefoot Beach. We floated in the water all day. If we go again we most likely won't go in a suite, so we'll be sure to reserve a cabana.View All 1,457 Labadee Cruise Port Reviews
