"Dramatic"... humm, maybe a stretch using that term. It was a good example of the well trained crew acting the way they have been instructed to respond.Very well put Gail!!
I was please to hear the captain make timely announcements as we watched the rescue: why we were slowing down and going into a turn followed by what was happening as the 8 men were brought aboard. He referred to them as "8 gentlemen from the island south of us".
Fortunately for those on the small craft, we had relatively calms seas rather than those we had encountered earlier in the week.
As an aside: the Freedom continues to be an awesome ship with an equally fantastic crew. The entertainment on board was excellent. We enjoyed every minute of our B2B on her. She is clean, attractive, and welcoming. Kudos to the Freedom of the Seas
Sooo nice meeting you and spending time with you this last week. You two made terrific
