Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2021
Cabin: Junior Suite

We really needed this cruise and returned the most relaxed in a long time! Covid protocols politely enforced and followed. Dining areas basically sat every other table. Boarding and disembarking smoothest ever - less than 30 minutes each!

There were about 2000 guests. Food was delicious and better compared to previous cruise on Freedom of the Seas. However, we did walk out of Grease. It was not the caliber we expected.

Coco Cay very clean and updated. First time there since revamp. The roaming drink staff did not know what a Cuba Libre was, I thought it was a common drink there. Nassau still pretty closed up. Staff vigilant about hand sanitizer. We did not eat in port, but heard of others who returned to ship for forgotten vaccine card. This was needed to be seated in a restaurant.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite

First time in this cabin and LOVED the space to escape pool deck crowds. Maria is a very attentive and personal cabin stewardess.
