While this ship was the easiest & fastest to board we thought this was going to be the best. We wanted to try Freestyle, sorry to say, that it was not great. I should start with the good points: Spotlessly clean. Great service, good prices, (but you get what you pay for) The cabin, although smaller than the other cruise line I had traveled with, was better engineered for storage, had a much larger bathroom, and again, was always spotlessly cleaned. With that being said, the rest of the cruise left a lot to be desired. The food was just OK. Even at the pay as you dine restaurants: Cagney’s, Salsa, Impressions, were not terrific, but at least better than the dining room fare. The entertainment was just OK. Not a lot to do during the day. the only entertainment that I liked was the comedian, Dave Heenan, and the pianist, at one of the lounges. Perhaps it was all the wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and elderly cruisers that made this voyage not as much fun. I will not cruise with them again.

OK and we'll leave it at that.

Spotless, very well engineered for storage. The bedding was not as luxurious as Royal Caribbean, and the bed was hard as a rock. I did not sleep well. The bathroom was pretty roomy for a cruise ship.

what on board activities? Hardly any during the day. At night there was only one show that I enjoyed and it was the comedian, Dave Heenan. I tried to make every show he did. Which leads me to this point, why not schedule two shows for those of us who rather prefer to eat later that the early bird special.

the sunset catamaran ride was great. The horse and carriage ride was nice and informative. Very enjoyable. You can take the Ferry over to Hamilton and get a great $50.00 tour with a cabbie named Mr. Bailey. He was awesome.

Not as great as I expected. Maybe Freestyle is not for us.
