Though the ship first debuted in 2006, upgrades in 2011 and 2015 ushered in additions such as an 18½ ft poolside movie screen. The first-ever surf park at sea was introduced on the 3,732-passenger Freedom of the Seas. This 32-foot-wide by 40-foot-long FlowRider generates a thin sheet of water that flows over the ride’s surface, creating a wave-like shape. Similar to swimming against a current in a stationary lap pool, dare-devils can surf and bodyboard against a wave-like water flow of 30,000 gallons per minute, carving turns and performing tricks. The Royal Caribbean trademark rock-climbing wall is certainly challenging at 43 ft tall by 44 ft wide, offering adrenalin-junkies eleven routes from easy to expert.

Maintaining the philosophy of activity-oriented diversions, the innovative ShipShape Fitness Centre is brim-full of Hammer Strength, Life Fitness, and Everlast equipment. There’s also a 20 foot-square boxing ring where participants can burn off excess calories and aggression as well as perfecting the sport of kings using heavy bags, speed bags, and jump ropes.

The 1,200-seat main dining room, crowned by a magnificent chandelier, is spread over three decks. Named Leonardo’s, Isaac’s, and Galileo’s respectively, they are linked by a dramatic staircase and there’s a balcony from which a pianist or trio play mood music. The popular, nautical-themed, Windjammer Café is open for breakfast, lunch and casual dining. The reservations-only speciality restaurant Chops Grille offers several cuts of steak, plus other grilled meats like lamb and fish including halibut; Giovanni’s Table is a fun Italian trattoria; while Sabor is possibly the best Mexican restaurant at sea with guacamole prepared tableside. There’s also Johnny Rockets, a retro 1950s diner for all-American favourites; and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream parlour.

There are a dizzying number of onboard activities and top-notch entertainment, however, there’s no blockbuster show like those on sister-ships Independence of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas. A popular venue is On Air Karaoke with small booths to practice before would-be Sinatras belt out familiar anthems in front of fellow passengers.

We recommend the jungle-themed Solarium as a blissful place to chillax. Here the sun-loungers have thicker mattresses than those found in other areas of the open decks. There are two large hot tubs cantilevered out from the sides of the ship, suspended 112-ft above the ocean. Other genteel pursuits include ‘Freedom Fairways’ – a 9-hole miniature golf course.
