My next cruise has many firsts. It will be my first time on Freedom, first balcony room, my boyfriend's first cruise, and my first cruise with a Supper Club. I am so excited. ANYWAY, my question is how does reserving the Supper Club work? What is the appropriate dress code and what about tipping? Also, for people that have tried out the Supper Club what did you think?

having just come off the Freedom in June, I can answer your questions-

We reserved our Supper club nights the first day. After you get on board, go up to the supper club and reserve your night. We picked a day when we were leaving port early (4PM) so that we knew we would be back on board without rushing. Make sure you don't pick a formal night (they have the schedule at the club so they can tell you which days are which). Dress code is "Smart Casual to Cruise elegant"- You will see suits and dresses, no shorts, jeans or collarless shirts allowed. Assume the dress for a fine restaurant and you are ok. I'm pretty sure the tip was not included on the bill but I could be wrong. You can ask to be sure. But you can tip what you think is appropriate.

As for what did I think- It was worth the extra money. The quality of the food was outstanding and they cook it per order, so it has not been sitting out prepared ahead of time in a warmer. We went twice during our 12 day cruise, but you should try it at least once.

Thanks Jim for your great reply. I can't wait to try out the ship and the supper club.
