We were on Freedom on a June 18th sailing. Great ship-clean, huge, new and fantastic beds. Built for families w/ children (flowrider, nice arcade but expensive, H2O Zone is great. In Montego Bay we took the River Tubing excursion. If you are going to do this, WEAR SNEAKERS due to the total mud they leave you off in. Vans could not get down to pick us up and the mosquitoes were nasty. We wouldn't do it again. Beware! Also the Seattle's Best coffee was the worst. Drink tea. I think they have coffee pot problems or they just let the stuff sit too long. The ship was beautiful but we liked Explorer better. Also, the food was tasteless and the chef evidently doesn't like chocolate caue a chocolate cake was not to be found.

SusanM,

Glad to hear you liked the Freedom. We were on the maiden voyage on June 4. No chocolate? Didn't you get the chocolate banana cream pie one night? The buffet dinner had a ton of chocolate desserts - including cake.

I generally liked the food. Most cruise ship food is not seasoned too highly since they have so many people to cook for thus they go for the bland side of the spectrum - although on the Freedom cruise I got soup one night (I think it had "Malaysian" in the soup name) that was quite spicy, which I loved.

To 17andacruiseaddict-I too was on the maiden voyage on June 4th. As far as different things to do. There is a Kareoke club, that was alot of fun. The promenade is bigger, with more stores/bars then the Explorer class. The Flowrider is a blast to go on, and almost as much fun to sit and watch. The cantilevered jaccuzis are wonderful, and sooooo big. And besides, she is the largest cruise ship in the world, for now. That was reason enough for me, the other stuff didn't hurt either. Good luck. Lil' Lori Plus they have the most entertaining bartenders at the Boleros, I have EVER seen.

I almost forgot about the guys at Bolero's! Manny and Adrian are great! Manny makes the best mojitos and caipahrinas.

Hi Dave56: No! No chocolate banana nothing! Glad you got it though. We ate in the dining room every night so perhaps that's why but they really did skimp on the chocolate...The best was the chicken marsala which was very good and moist and the cold soups were great. Other than that the dining room food was blah.

To 17andacruiseaddict: You probably already found it, but the FreedomOfTheSeas.com shows some great pictures. Sorry if you already saw them! Good luck, it really is a magnificent ship!
