We have sailed twice on this ship because we were very impressed the first cruise.There is always plenty to do and it is a beautiful ship.Entertainment was good and so was the food.The second cruise they were using the terminal for the Oasis and it was extremely easy to drop off the luggage and park the car.All cruise terminal should be this nice and user friendly. The cabins could use a slight upgrade with new carpet and decor,but it's in overall good condition.We were on deck 7 and we didn't experience any problems with our state room.The ports were great and we did an excursion at all 4 ports.In Grand Cayman the dexlux city sand bar swimming with sting rays was a very good experience. Ilsa Roatan excursion at the Gumblimba Preservation park was another good choice but were not imformed that you could bring swim gear and enjoy a private beach while there.It was very hot the day we were there and a swim would have been great so remember to take swim suits.Next stop was Costa Maya and we drove on a bus to the Choccoben Mayan Ruins.This was interesting and we enjoyed our tour guide.On to Cozumel where we went out on a limb and I booked the Ilsa Passion by Twister.This is a big speed boat that drives for several miles up the coast and on the way to the private Island with the most wonderful beach,your driver will do a 360 turn with the speed boat.You are buckled in and have on a life vest so you are secured.My husband and I loved the speed boat trip to and from the island.we enjoyed all of our excursions and I booked with RC on line about 2 weeks prior to departure and they hand delivered the envelope with all the tickets to the excursions to our state room within hours after departure . Thanks Royal Carribean for a great week on The Freedom of the Seas.

Good Times on a fantastic ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7694
Overall condition of the state room was good.the curtains on doors leading on to the balcony were starting to be in need of replacing but that surely did not interfere with having a clean and safe stateroom.
