Default Freedom - Presidential Suite

Has anyone stayed in the Presidential Suite on one of the Freedom class ships? I've toured it but my memory is rusty. We're booked for March 15 on the Freedom and I'm starting to feel like this is a big mistake. From remembering the layout I believe the living/dining room is tiny. Max capacity is 14 but I've already warned the family that I'm limiting it to 8 but even that seems a bit too many for my liking.

Any feedback from anyone?

Thanks
Bobbye

As I recall from touring the ship the suites on Freedom were a little on the small side. They had a lot of bedrooms with separate baths, but the family spaces were limited to a somewhat tight space with couches, table and bar area. Nice deck area though.

the Celebrity mega-suites are definitely a lot bigger.

Thanks! Yes, that's what I remember too. Fabulous deck with hot tub but the living area is small. Guess I rethink this trip.

BTW I will admit to being spoiled. Our last 2 extended family cruises have been in Garden Villas on NCL. We haven't been cruising as much as normal but cruising at a higher level.

::grumble grumble:: I hate it when a plan falls apart!

Haha, we had a family reunion on Mariner last summer and each family just had their own inside cabin! Haha, quite the opposite of your cruising experience!

We've done everything on cruises from inside on up. Just have been doing a little celebrating in the last year since the house is paid off and the college bills are a thing of the past

Hi

We stayed in the presidential suite on the freedom.

For 8 people it’s ok. If you booked it for 14 then it’s small.

The service is very good, you have your own butler. The balcony is very nice.

If you want some more information contact me
