LIVE from the Freedom of the Seas! - Nov 12, 2016/ 8 night Eastern Caribbean

Recommended Posts

Welcome to LIVE from the Freedom of the Seas! I'm very excited to be sailing on the Freedom again as it is definitely a favorite of mine

 

This cruise will take us to Labadee, San Juan, St. Kitts and St. Maarten. I have plans for most of these ports, and will be reporting on my day at each of them complete with commentary and pictures. Our cruise also has 3 sea days and I am looking forward to relaxing by the pool and enjoying everything Freedom has to offer. I will be posting often, and uploading pictures of the ship as long as the Internet is reliable. Feel free to ask questions as I do scroll back and try to answer all of them!

 

I'm cruising with 3 friends this time, in fact it's our 10th annual Girls Cruise which means no DH's and no kids Just 4 women on the high seas (okay hopefully not too high). I'm sailing solo in a D2 balcony on deck 9, and the view should be amazing as it is a center hump.

 

I have just checked in to my pre-cruise hotel, the Toronto Airport Marriott, it's a full service Marriott that I have stayed in many times. I will be receiving a wake up call at 3A.M, and our flight to Fort Lauderdale is at 6A.M ✈️

 

I will be spending 2 nights at the Courtyard Marriott Fort Lauderdale Beach in a fantastic corner ocean view room

The weather forecast in Fort Lauderdale is calling for sunny skies and temps in the 80's.

☀️

 

Looking forward to sharing my cruise adventures with you!

Looking forward to your review! I am on the same itinerary 11/26 :). If you are taking requests, if you happen to be in the schooner and/or pub in the evenings, can you let me know what you think of the acts? I love hanging out at one or both each evening and I am hoping they are good. The ones on the Liberty this summer were not a highlight.

Thanks!!

Here's a pic of my hotel room, very spacious and very comfortable beds! If you sense a Marriott theme here it's because I'm an Elite member and try and choose Marriott whenever I can for some very nice perks like upgrades and access to the Concierge Lounge d9a0104c6c7b4ceae14cd245257bedde.jpg

 

These are both mine. Don't judge

Subscribing! Don't forget to report on the ship's mattresses! I'm curious what you will find.

Stay tuned, I'll let you know.

In the meantime I'm on a Marriott bed and they could teach RCI a thing or two about comfortable mattresses.

We're on this itinerary also in February. There have been so many replies already on this thread saying the same thing - no wonder the prices are going up instead of down... :-)
