The Freedom of the Seas offers fun for all members of the family while also offering some much-needed relaxation. As Cruise Critic's 2017 Best for Families winner, kids and parents alike will want to come back again and again. The Freedom sails around the Bahamas and the Caribbean.
As with any cruise, a fun-filled pool deck is a family must. The two onboard pools are perfect for water lovers and those who want to relax by the water. The pool also hosts competitions like "sexiest legs", late-night pool parties, and dive-in movie nights. The H2O Zone is a kids-only aqua park that is sure to entertain youngsters for hours. Those who may not want to spend time around splashing kids can enjoy the adults-only Solarium, perfect for relaxing and enjoying a cocktail. Thrill-seekers must try the Freedom's surf simulator which will be fun whether it is your 1st or 101st time. Those over 6 years old can also try out Freedom's rock climbing wall or the mini-golf course.
Parents may worry about keeping their kids entertained during sea days, but Freedom's youth programs have got you covered. Split into three groups based on age, Adventure Ocean offers educational, fun, and FREE events for youngsters including themed parties, games, science experiments, and socializing with other kids on board.
Family entertainment is more than abundant on board from original theater productions to ice skating shows. Mystery fans should be sure to try out the Mystery Dinner Theater, in which a professional cast host a fun, mystery-filled evening with a multi-course dinner (note that this event requires an additional fee). Similar to Disney cruises, Freedom offers the opportunity of character meet and greets with Dreamworks characters like Kung Fu Panda and Shrek. Just be sure to tag us if you snap a pic! Daily fun varies from the onboard casino, dance classes, guest lecturers, game shows, culinary courses, wine tasting, and much, much more.
Babysitting is available onboard for parents looking for a little alone time. Group babysitting is $7 per child, per hour in the Late Night Party Zone. In-room babysitting is $19 per hour, for UP TO THREE CHILDREN AT A TIME. For families with older kids, this may not be a problem, but for those with many little ones, group babysitting is the better option.
Each ship has a variety of fun activities for the whole family, so be sure to check your ship before you cruise to view what's available. Whether you're 8 or 80, there's no reason not to have fun on your getaway at sea; before breaking off into everyone's activities, enjoy some time together by planning to meet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
This is the time to make memories and nothing could be more memorable than setting up a shore excursion for the whole family. Plan your shore excursions ahead of time for the best chance at booking your top selections.
*Please note it is often cheaper to book two staterooms or two connecting cabins instead of one large stateroom suite - plus it gives you a second bathroom.*
