Nice! Where was it previously and where will Navigator be going? Simple swap?

I believe Freedom was out of San Juan a while back and then went in for reamplification last summer. Not sure what the future plans are. Will be interesting.

We were originally book on Freedom out of San Juan for October of 2020, then lift and shifted to November 7 of 2021, then Freedom was replaced by Explorer but I don't remember the date of the change.

Ah so Navigator going to CA early, makes sense. Where is Freedom coming from or was it always offering sailings out of Miami?

Freedom was already sailing from Miami.  Navigator was sailing out of FLL

We sailed on her in May 2019 out of San Juan, Southern Caribbean itinerary. Had an amazing time 🤩

Trying to be positive, but was so happy to have Navigator coming to Ft. Lauderdale (just an Uber ride to port),versus having to drive and park at PortMiami ($22/day).

Freedom is probably my favorite ship

Why is that? Is there any significant difference between it and Navigator or Mariner?

We were originally booked on Freedom out of San Juan for March 2022 then in October 2020 it was swapped out for Explorer....I was a bit disappointed...but in the end I'm ok with it. Got the same category (OS) similar location and a reduction in pricing.

Same here. At this point I'd be happy on a tug boat just to get out in the Caribbean.

Some folks prefer the Voyager ships over Freedom due to less elevator crowding

I wish Freedom would go back to FLL with 8 night itineraries.

 

We did 8/6 B2B on Adventure out of PE. It was fun

I remember when Voyager Class started they were doing 7niter East/West Caribbean 3 Ports and 3 Sea Days flying high speed Port to Port. Love my Sea Days. Within year they started doing 4 Port and 2 Sea Days. All about $$$. Instead of speeding across Caribbean with all Engines on High ships now moved along slower, better MPG and then more money made on extra Ports. Me, I'd rather do 10,11,12+ niters but understand many more like(or only able to do) 7 or less. So see the higher capacity Freedom Class stuck on shorter 3-5 Niters.

Freedom class is nice, had planned a SJ trip on Freedom a couple of years back, never made it happen.   I too would love some longer voyages on these 3 sisters but to get a factor of 7 to work maybe 12/9 instead of 8/6.  Never say never, the new future of cruising could be just about anything....

Most of my Adventure cruises were from San Juan but I seem to recall one out of FLL.😉
