Just returned from the magnificent Freedom of the Seas. WOW! WOW! WOW! You never need to get off the ship....of course, this was a cruise to nowhere so we couldn't, but who would want to anyway. This ship has everything. Great service, nice cabins, and good food. Entertainment was awesome. Something for everyone to do and see. We actually tried to stay up for the entire 3 days so we could experience everything.
We arrived at Miami airport on Monday around 12:30. Our flight was actually a half hour early. RCCL met us at baggage claim and transported us to ship. Embarkation was quick and easy. Smiling faces, glad to see us all around the ship. When we arrived at our cabin someone else was in there so we had to go to guest relations, which was a bit crazy with people trying to upgrade their cabins. They kept our luggage and told us to go have lunch and come back in an hour and they'd have everything straightened out. When we came back, our cabin was changed from a beautiful Promenade cabin on Deck 8 to an inside cabin on Deck 10 which was very, very small. A little sad about that, but hey...what can you do?
Set out to explore from Deck 15 to Deck 12 and found wonderful places to eat and drink. Then to Deck 11 for even more fun with pool and solarium and surfing and on and on. This is a great ship for kids and families and singles and couples looking for relaxation. There are so many things to do that it never seems crowded even in the restaurants.
