Gerry Pople's Trip Report

Ship: 
Freedom of the Seas
Duration: 
7
Cabin: 
OUTSIDE CABINS [3] WITH INTERCONNECTING BALCONIES

This was our first cruise with my daughters and 3 grandchildren aged 3,7 and 9.  My wife was anxious about cruising as she claims not to like 'being on boats'.   Freedom was everything we could have hoped for.  We as a family enjoyed the Galileo restaurant with the extremely friendly and courteous staff,  the cabins were always clean and well presented the entertainment first class and the boarding and embarkation efficient and speedy.

We were extremely lucky with the weather, with hurricane Irene appearing the following week and whilst not experiencing the excursions we still enjoyed visiting the islands especially St.Maarten.

The children enjoyed the O2 water area and the video games room but did not join the supervised activities [they enjoy playing by themselves - unsocial like their Granddad].  A great holiday enjoyed by all.
