We just got back on Freedom of the Seas through the Carribean. It was awesome! The captain redirected our itinerary so we would not be effected by Hurricane Irene. We sailed our route in reverse from original plan which I thought was even better. Because it was great to finish the cruise in Labadee and relax rather than doing an adventurous excursion in Cozumel last. Because of the hurricane, our sailing was so smooth because the rough waters are drawn toward the hurricane which left us with crystal clear waters.
