I'm a barber in North Carolina and was curious about the barber shop on board of the freedom ship? I was really surprised to hear they had one. I wonder if they really are barbers and if they are regulated the way we are here in the states. Has anyone had experience with it? How much are haircuts and shaves? We charge $13 for each here in NC.

Thanks,
BarberGirl Linda

Linda, I've seen the barber shop on Freedom of the Seas but never went in, so I don't know much about the rules and regulations to which they may be subject. I've seen people in there getting a shave, complete with hot towels on the face, and they've all looked very happy!

Sonny,

I remember the taller barber in your photo. Like many people, I didn't go inside but stood out in the promenade and gawked. For some reason I think the barber shop is run by the same vendor who does the spa treatments. I thought I heard that barber speak with a British accent.

Linda - I'm sure they are not traditional barbers, but more likely trained hair stylists or beauticians playing barber. I did see the whole treatment though - the hot towels, men getting shaves, etc. The barbers had order pads and wrote down what the person wanted before starting. No doubt to ensure the cruise card was properly charged!

If you want to take a look inside this Barber Shop, Go to the Virtual Tour onboard Freedom at; www.freedomoftheseas.com - And visit the royal promenade - It's absolutely recommanded!
