HELP! This is my first time cruising, my son plays hockey all year and we are going on Freedom of the Seas March 22-29th I was wondering what their ice all entails-
If you know of anyone else who could help that would be great!
Thank You- Michelle
The rink onboard Freedom-class (and Voyager-class) ships is used for leisure skating and evening ice shows. The rink is pretty small, but I guess that's expected. There's a lot of other active stuff -- rock-climbing wall, surf simulator (very fun), video arcade -- so the boy probably won't have trouble keeping occupied.

This really ticks me off. I have a lot of t-shirts earned from walking my one or two miles per day on each cruise we've taken as well as participating in the line-dancing lessons. I even got my dh to walk (and that's saying something!). I will admit we've done some Tai Chi as well as Sit and Be Fit and beanbag tossing but if I wouldn't have gotten a reward I would staff have done them.
If they think they're giving too many items away for people playing bean toss, etc., then quit giving the Vitality Reward for those activities. The Vitality Reward should only have been given to those who truly earned it by doing some strenuous exercise activity.
I've always worn my t-shirts proudly on our cruises and to the store at home. I'll continue to wear them until they wear out even if it takes 20 years or so.
Actually, I think I still have some of the Vitality cards that I was planning on using on our next trip. Guess they've just become collector's items, right?
