Things to do

Recreation

From high-adrenaline activities to spaces for relaxing and unwinding, Freedom of the Seas has everything you could need for an unforgettable onboard experience. 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. Meanwhile, the ship's pools are always a popular spot to spend a few hours during your cruise, whether you like to cool off in the water or chill out nearby on a sun lounger.

However, the fun doesn't stop there. Thanks to the Perfect Storm, two exhilarating water slides, guests can twist and turn their way down the ship, taking in the views as they go. Plus, for younger children, Splashaway Bay is on hand with slides, water cannons and fountains.

Spa and fitness

Freedom of the Seas is no slouch in the spa and fitness department either. The ship boasts a fabulous spa, where you can be pampered to your heart's content with the great selections of treatments on offer. The adult-only spa has its own relaxed pool, hot tubs, and all the great facilities you would expect from Royal Caribbean.

Freedom of the Seas' gym is also fully-equipped with modern equipment 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.
