I was surprised to see that the pub on my Freedom of the Seas cruise offered frozen drinks. Is the daiquiri you want frozen? I think they could most likely make this for you here.

Miscellaneous

Richard Spacey is awesome. He is my new crush. He is just so silly and seems really happy and genuine. His morning shows with Jaime were too cute.

On the first night we kept...

We didn't book online either but we did call each day between 2-4pm to make reservations. Don't know what the issue was. Maybe because we weren't calling from our room phone? By BF did give them our...

Excursions & Ports

Cocoay for us was a beach day. The tender was fine although there was an annoying incident when waiting to tender in. Either the port/aft side (I don't know which was which) of...

Coco Cay was kind of "meh" for us. We made it to Barefoot Beach and sat in some loungers on the top of a little hill. Behind us was a lot of trash and broken loungers (it looked kinda sketchy). I...

Thanks for the info. It happened so late in the evening, we contacted both Guest Services and Maintenance rather than our Room Steward. We did not know they would not need to get into our room to...

Entertainment
BF and I only attended one show, Drew Thomas' magic show. It was incredible! We had towards the side, a level up from the floor and were pretty much level with the stage. I've seen...

Food & Beverage
BF and I ordered room service each morning. BF typically had coffee and eggs, I had pastries and jam. BF was so excited because he'd never used room service before! We tipped $2 each...

The Cabin
When we got to our room, we tried to forget about the incident. We had cabin 8376, a superior oceanview room. This was our first balcony and we were beyond excited. There were two chairs...

Sunday, May 19
We awoke around 8am. BF headed to get breakfast while I showered (I was too excited to eat). We headed to the waiting area for our shuttle around 9:15. I left the luggage with the BF,...
Review: Freedom Eastern - May 19-26
This will my my first in-depth cruise review. I'll be posting this in pieces, hopefully completing it within the next few days. Sorry, there will be no photos. I am basically going to stick with my...

Hi Jax! I didn't do the Meet & mingle either. BF and I really enjoyed having a balcony for the first time! We had breakfast room service everyday, cocktails in the Champagne Bar and beers in the Bull...

Not sure if they are nonsmoking venues. I HATE smoke and am pretty sensitive to the smell and did not notice smoke from either of these venues. I'm pretty sure the Bull & Bear does not allow smoking,...

I too just got off the Freedom yesterday. I will post an in depth review later, but my MTD experience was much different from yours.

Yes, very much so. Could also smell smoke from the Bull & Bear pub. The smoke was coming from the casino, not the bars.

I just got off the same Freedom sailing as well so I can answer this question. Short answer, I was disappointed with the electronic coupons.

When first arriving to the room (possibly it was the...

I like to bring my own beach towels (just a couple, but then again only 2 of us travel). I don't like fooling with the towel exchange process. This year I will be bringing a beach roll mat so I can...

Loving your review of the Freedom! My hope is that you have it completed by the time I sail on her THIS SUNDAY. :eek:

Seriously, awesome review. One of the best I have seen.

I gave some serious consideration into purchasing the package. Until about a week ago, I was 100% behind the package. However recently, I started thinking about the items not included. For me, those...
In port taxes for drinks before set sail?
This may vary by port, or might be a nonissue altogether, but say if you were to purchase a single drink or even an alcohol package before setting sail and leaving port, would your purchase be...

Anyone have any experiences bringing soda/water aboard recently? Specifically for Port Canaveral and/or on the Freedom?
