You are correct when you say that "western is better for adventure". I personally LOVE Eastern because I am a lay on the beach and vegetate kind of gal but for adventure - you want Western.
The Western itinerary is famous for swimming with stingrays, climbing water falls, white water rafting, zip lining, cave tubing, ATV jungle tours, horseback riding on the beach, etc.
And Freedom of the Seas is awesome for kids! I bet your son would love the flow rider surfing, rock climbing wall and ice skating rink. He may even enjoy the golf simulator (I know my big boy did - aka hubby)
