Freedom of the Seas: Enhanced to cater to every cruise passenger's needs
The newly enhanced Freedom of the Seas features several maritime innovations to stir your imagination. Share a high five with Shrek as part of the DreamWorks Experience.

And finish the evening with a selection of reds or whites at the renovated, now-more-intimate Vintages wine bar.
