This was our third cruise on board RCCL but first on Freedom of the Seas. The ships size is a bit overwhelming but not a problem in getting around. Although, I would strongly suggest maps be given out upon check-in.

Basically this cruise was made good by the ship itself and the amenities it offers, whether it be a rock climbing wall, the flow rider on the back of the ship, three separate water/pool areas, inclusive of a water park (H2O Zone for kids), and perhaps most importantly many elevators.

Food was good and had a nice selection. Bar service was nice and especially liked the wine bar and English pub. The worst experience on board was dealing with the most arrogant cruise director we ever encountered. Graham Seymour was absolutely in love with himself and his ego was larger than the ship itself. The first night there my wife said he needs to decide whether he wants to be a cruise director or comedian. On the third night, who turns up to be the late night Comedian? Of course, Graham Seymour. An absolutely pitiful display for a CD.

Embarkation and debarkation were easy and the itinerary was pleasant, made better by no weather issues. You cannot go wrong booking on Freedom of the Seas if Mr. Seymour is not your CD.

Good, not great. Good portions too

Our balcony stateroom was as expected and would mirror that from any other in the industry.

Plenty of activities for all ages.
