Freedom is FREEDOM!!!!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
This is the second trip on the Freedom, 7th cruise, but this cruise June 13, 2010, was a truly wonderful experience. We were on this ship in 2009, but did not have the great experiences that we have had this 2010 sailing. All RCI employees were really great! it seemed that they were really appreciative that you sailed with them, which I liked. They were really eager to please.
My family booked two jr suites and two balcony staterooms. We had a great cabin steward. Her name was Ethel from Columbia. She was really GREAT!!! Our waiter in the dining room was named NAVIN, his assistant was Ed. They were truly the greatest waitstaff that we have had on any sailings.
We had no problem at the pool in getting lounge chairs.
The shows were really great. The salute to More Temptations was something you wouldnt forget. The magician as well as the comedian were also great.
The only problem that we had was in disembarkation.
While leaving the ship I feel that they called too many guest. We were on the escalator going down to baggage claim and the escalator got backed up---No one at the bottom had anywhere to go. People began falling and my daughter was injured, we spoke to the lady from RCI there that was suppose to be watching and she absolutely didnt care. ( We had yelled to her from the escalator to turn off and hit emergency button--but she did not do it) Several people were injured and one man cut his toes very very badly. My daughter had a broken wrist and she was hurt. I have since sent a letter to RCI--but have had no response. It seems to me that a wonderful cruise was ruined by this one incident!!! This was complete incompetence from that worker that was suppose to be watching SO BEWARE--BE CAREFUL ON THAT ESCALATOR!!!!! Less
Cabin review: D19662 Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
oUR CABIN 9662 : WE WERE NEAR THE REAR OF THE SHIP. HAD A LITTLE VIBRATION, NOT REALLY BAD, BUT I SUSALLY STAY IN THE MIDDLE-SO I DID FEEL IT. CLOSET WAS PRETTY GOOD SIZE WITH A SAFE ON A SHELF AND SEVERAL SHELVES UNDERNEATH TO HOLD THINGS. DRESSER IN CABIN HAD 6 LARGE DRAWERS AND TWO SMALLER DRAWERS, ALSO SHELVES BEHIND MIRRORS OVER VANITY, AS WELL AS SHELVES UNDER TV. BED WAS KING SIZE AND VERY COMFY, BATH WAS SMALL BUT THE ROUND SHOWER IS ALWAYS NICE AND MORE ROOM. VANITY AREA PRETTY LARGE. ONLY 2 PLUG INS IN THE WHOLE CABIN, BUT WE WORKED IT OUT FINE. TV GOOD, RUNNING MOVIES 24 HOURS, NEWS CHANNEL, RCI CHANNELS, MORE THAT I REMEMBER BEFORE. NICE SITTING AREA WITH GLASS TOP TABLE AND LOVESEAT. VERY COMFY AND ROOMY.
