If you're looking for elegant surroundings and a la carte menus, head to Portofino's for the finest Italian cuisine, or to Chops Grille for a perfect steak. On the other hand, if you're in the mood for pizza and a more casual Italian atmosphere, then Sorrento's is just the treat.

For casual dining you can head to the ship's buffet venue, enjoy the famous American diner experience in Johnny Rockets, or maybe tempt yourself with the '40s charm and wonderful baked goods of the Cupcake Cupboard.

Freedom of the Seas is renowned for its exceptional choice of onboard entertainment. The Freedom-class ship brings together the elegance of Broadway-style shows in the main theatre, wonderful products in Studio B's ice rink, and a fantastic choice of bars and lounges to relax in.

Whether it's high rolling in the casino, enjoying the elegant surrounding of the Martini bar, or heading to the sports bar, or the English-style pub for a cold beer, you will be spoilt for choice.

Freedom of the Seas is no slouch in the spa and fitness department either.

The adult-only spa has its own relaxed pool, hot tubs, and all the great facilities you would expect from Royal Caribbean.

There is also a fully equipped modern gym onboard, so you can burn off the calories from all the wonderful food you've indulged in. If you fancy taking a class or two, then why not give the likes of yoga or pilates a go?


Freedom of the Seas, as the first of the Freedom-class ships, was unrivalled when it comes to recreation at sea when she was first launched. Today Freedom of the Seas remains one of the finest ships at sea and still offers a great selection of entertainment and recreation.

If you are looking for a little excitement at sea, then why not try the ship's climbing wall, the FlowRider — the cruise line's renowned surf machine — or you could go ice skating in Studio B. Head to the Royal Promenade to enjoy the hustle and bustle, or the ship's social hub to do a spot of shopping or maybe for a relaxed coffee. In addition, there's always the library to escape to for some peace and quiet, or it's possible to relax in the spa, on deck, or by the pool.

Customer reviews for Freedom of the Seas

Having never cruised before I didn't know what to expect but it was amazing. You could dress as you wished but wish I had taken some special outfits. All the staff could not do enough for you, entertainment was great from bands, theatre like shows, quizzes, comedians. Plenty for all ages and I was amazed how many young people(under 30) were on board. Great range of excursions. Glad we took out the drinks package but did not realise tips would be added to your final bill so I wish I had added these on to package. Food was great which changed daily, so much choice. You don't need cash on board as it just goes on your seapass card which is linked to your credit card. Would definitely cruise again in a few years when we've saved up!

Royal Caribbean Cruise Cruise in general was ok, but the staff experience on several occasions was terrible. I’m a Gold member and will not recommend or have Royal Caribbean as my preferred cruise line until this is fixed. Examples of our experiences are shown below: 1. I left my class of Whisky in the room after lunch & the cleaning staff through it out before I got back from the early evening show 2. The Flowrider staff refused to allow my son to participate because their systems where down and they would not let me sign an indemnity form because I had a drink in my hand. I had to rejoin the long que and again got told to come back after 15 min. 3. They refused to honour my gold membership but one get one free drink because I did not inform the staff that I wanted to use it while ordering 4. There is no app with the schedule of activities & no free wifi to stay intouch 5. Long que at Service Desk with several staff just doing their own thing and ignoring the line of waiting customers 6. No single table seating for our group of 24. Not even one night to celebrate our Aunts 80th Birthday These and other incidents course unnecessary frustration that you don’t need while on holiday.
