Freedom of the Seas Back after 24-Day Drydock with New Features

Re-emerging from a 24-day drydock at Grand Bahama Shipyard, Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas returned into service this past weekend.

The newly revitalized Freedom of the Seas has updated dining options, new staterooms categories, the new R Bar lounge, and underwent a bow-to-stern refresh of the entire ship’s furnishings.

There are nine onboard dining options including new specialty dining experiences like the  Mexican specialty restaurant Sabor; a new Chops Grille: The New American Steakhouse, offering a completed revamped and elevated menu; a new Giovanni’s Table serving delicious Italian favorites, family style; as well as the classic Johnny Rockets.

An additional 67 new staterooms also have been added to Freedom of the Seas during its recent drydock.

Among the new staterooms is a new category of Panoramic Ocean View staterooms located atop the front of the ship. Panoramic Ocean View staterooms feature a floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall window to offer guests expansive, unobstructed vistas of ports and sea.
