We had a great cruise this December on Freedom. A child's life was saved and we made it home safely, with a loss of propulsion power. The ship was in great order otherwise. The staff were exceptional, and cruisers were friendly and polite. There were a lot of experienced cruises, as in diamond plus and above. Most experienced cruises did not mind missing Cozumel, while some were disappointed because the were looking forward to something there. Either way the captain makes the decisions and I am happy as long as all are safe. There was some excessive vibration in the aft, but usually only noticed this for a few minutes.

Cabin Review

Cabin 1630
The room was as usual except when closed up seemed to have a strange smell. I open the balcony door a couple of times to air it out. The locations was great just a few steps from the concierge lounge. Deck 10 is nice because it is just one flight up to the pool.
