COMPLETE REVIEW

WE WOULD LIKE TO START OUT BY SAYING THAT WE NEVER TRIED A BIG SHIP BEFORE, WE KEPT A OPEN MIND BEING ON A SHIP THAT HOLDS 4,000 GUEST :excl:

WOW, WE WERE SURPRISED HOW ORGANIZED AND WELL THOUGHT OUT EVERYTHING YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO ANYWHERE ON THE FREEDOM, ROYAL CARIBBEAN KNOWS HOW TO HANDLE ALL THE NEEDS FOR THEIR GUEST.:thumbup::thumbup:

OH BY THE WAY, JUST IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING (WE DIDN'T SEE ANY DIAPER CHANGING IN THE DINING AREA;) :thumbdown::thumbdown:

FROM THE FIRST DAY TO THE LAST DAY, WE WHERE ENTERTAINED, YOU HAVE 3 POOL AREAS TO CHOOSE FROM, THE H20 AREA FOR KIDS & PARENTS, THE COMMUNITY POOL WITH THE BIG SCREEN TV AREA & THE ADULT AREA, PLENTY OF LOUNGE CHAIRS IN THESE ARES SO WE DIDN'T SEE ANY HOARDING.:rolleyes2:

WE DIDN'T TRY THE FLOW RIDER, BUT WE SAT THERE AND WATCHED THE GUESTS WHO TRIED THE FLOW, THIS WAS FUN AND FUNNY AT TIMES :biggrin:

WHAT WAS REALLY A SURPRISE IS THE ICE RINK, AND A MUST SEE ICE SHOW, WHAT A PRODUCTION. IF YOU GO MAKE SURE YOU MAKE RESERVATIONS EVERY SHOW IS PACKED :thumbup:

NOW IF YOU GREW UP IN THE 1960'S LIKE WE DID, YOU WILL LIKE JOHNNY ROCKET DINER, CHEESEBURGERS & FRIES BUT YOU HAVE TO TRY THE MILKSHAKES :ohmy: THEIR REALLY GOOD :thumbup: & THE TABLE JUKE BOXES AND THE NICKLES ARE SUPPLIED FOR YOU TO CHOOSE THE MUSIC FROM THE 60'S.

THE DINING ROOM IS WELL STAFFED, FLOOR PLANNED WELL THOUGHT OUT AND THE STAFF IS WELL MANNERED ALWAYS POLITE & THE SELECTION OF THE MAIN COURSE IS PLENTIFUL :thumbup:. FOOD IS REALLLLLY GOOOOD :excl:

TO OUR SURPRISE, THE BUFFET AREA. NO LONG LINES, WE COUNTED FOUR COUNTERS OF ALL KINDS OF SELECTIONS OF FOOD, THE BEVERAGE AREA'S WAS FAST AND WELL STOCKED, THE STAFF AGAIN IS VERY POLITE & WELL MANNERED :thumbup:

WE REALLY LIKE THE ROYAL PROMENADE AREA, THIS IS MADE UP OF SHOPS & BARS MADE OF AS A STREET THE BARS OR PUBS ARE LIKE YOU WOULD FIND IN ENGLAND OR EUROPE, ALSO IN THIS AREA PLENTY OF ENTERTAINMENT AND DANCING MUSIC, BUT WHAT A FINALE ON THE LAST DAY OF YOU CRUISE AT SEA WHAT EVER YOU DO YOU CAN'T MISS THE PARADE THE STAFF PUTS ON A SPECTACULAR EVENT :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

IF YOU LIKE DREAM WORKS CARTOON CHARACTERS, LIKE SHREK, PRINCESS FIONA & OF COURSE PUSS-AND BOOTS AND MANY OTHERS, ARE OUT AND ABOUT FOR YOU TO TAKE YOUR PICTURE, JUST HAVE YOUR CAMERA READY. IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN OR GRAND KIDS WITH YOU TAKE THEM TO THE DREAM WORKS CHARACTERS BREAKFAST :thumbup:

WE TOOK ARE PICTURES WITH SHREK & PRINCESS FIONA, AND ALSO PUSS :blush:

WE ALSO TOOK IN A FEW PRODUCTION SHOWS IN THE MAIN THEATER & COMEDY SHOWS, REALLY, REALLY GOOD SHOWS AND DIFFERENT FROM SHOWS WE SEEN ON OTHER CRUISE LINES :smile:

WE ALSO LIKE THE IDEA THAT YOU CAN WALK OUT TO THE BOW OF THE SHIP ON A NICE DAY AND SIT AND JUST LOOK OUT OVER THE OCEAN AND QUIET :mellow:

OUR CABIN STEWARD WAS POLITE AND A HARD WORKER, TOOK VERY GOOD CARE OF US HIS NAME IS MARLON JAMES FROM JAMAICA ,

AND IF YOU EVER GET MARLON AS YOUR CABIN STEWARD MENTION A BIG HELLO FROM US :thumbup::thumbup:

OVER ALL WE JUST HAD A GREAT TIME AND WE WILL DEFINITELY CRUISE AGAIN ON THE FREEDOM :excl:

MAYBE WE SHOULD PUT A CRUISE CRAZIES CRUISE TOGETHER ON THE FREEDOM IN THE FUTURE, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

THIS IS GOOD INFORMATION IF YOU EVER GO TO PORT CANAVERAL FOR A CRUISE, A LOT OF THE HOTELS ARE IN COCOA BEACH, WE LIKE TO STAY AT THE HILTON,HAMPTON & DOUBLE TREE, NOW WE KNOW THESE 3 HOTELS OFFER CRUISE PACKAGE DEALS,. IF YOU CHOOSE THE HILTON WE KNOW THEY OFFER FREE PARKING AND FREE TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM THE PORT, THE HAMPTON & DOUBLE TREE OFFER A PACKAGE DEAL FOR A SMALL FEE.

AND IN THIS AREA IN COCA BEACH THEIR ARE PLENTY OF GOOD RESTAURANTS & AT THE PIER.

CAPE CANAVERAL BY THE PORT IS ALSO PLACE TO EAT, TRY RUSTY'S & GRILLS BAR BOTH HAVE GOOD FOOD AND YOU CAN WATCH THE CRUISE SHIPS LEAVE THE PORT :excl:

WE NOW ARE READY TO TRY THE OASIS OF THE SEAS & ALLURE OF THE SEAS, HOPE TO SEE YOU ON BOARD :excl:

TO SAILING ROSE CENTRAL FLORIDA, YOU ARE RIGHT WE DID HAVE LOTS OF FUN :excl::excl::excl::excl::excl::excl::excl::excl:

OUR NEXT CRUISE, NCL STAR WESTERN CARIBBEAN FROM TAMPA. MMMMMM :thumbup::thumbdown:? 27 NOV, 7DAYS.

I WILL BE HAVING MY 60TH BIRTHDAY ON THIS CRUISE.....:wacko:

HAPPY SAILING TO ALL;

:wub:

Glad you had a great time, I'm still a bit wary of large ships after a couple bad experiences on carnival and princess. I didnt see anything about if you had to pay for the "Johnny Rockets" or if you had to pay any additional fees for anything else? I have to say though this review might make me rethink my postion on bigships. Thanks so much for the review!

HELLO CRHRISMORGAN :biggrin:

THE EXTRA FEE FOR JOHNNY ROCKETS IS $4.95 PP AND WORTH PAYING FOR, GOOD FOOD AND SHAKES, AND IF YOU GREW UP IN THE 50 & 60 A WALK BACK IN TIME, REMEMBER THE JUKE BOX'S ARE A $0.05 AND RCCL SUPPLIES THE NICKEL. WE WILL BE BOOKING AGAIN SOON AND THINKING OF BOOKING THE BIGGER RCCL SHIPS.:thumbup:
