Default Woo Hoo!!!

Woo Hoo!!! Have an absolutely amazing, wonderful time on my favorite RCCL ship. I will be celebrating my 50th birthday on her in October with my family. St. Thomas and St. Maarten are my two favorite ports. Can't wait to hear all about your trip when you return. Safe travels! Wanda

I rolled into town just in time to watch the Disney ship leave.



Then checked into to my hotel. I'm staying at the LaQuinta inn on nort Atlantic ave, cocoa beach. I have stayed here before. It's the 7 astronaut hotel that was originally built in the 60s but has been updated very nicely and was 89 dollars for park and cruise. Great people here and we had a wonderful dinner at the Asian place here at the hotel.




And just like my cabin on the ship a nice roll in shower




I recommend this hotel. Very clean and awesome staff here. Tomorrow pics of Freedom!

Almost cruise time! I hope I can sleep tonight! Lol

Have a great time!! We are on the Freedom 3 weeks from today and can't wait!

If you like chocolate, be sure to go to Beatrix's chocolate box in St Maarten right off of front street. She makes the BEST chocolate and is always our first stop since she will send it back to the ship for you! If you go, tell Beatrix that Debra and Deborah said HI!!

Enjoy!
