I am not a "bells and whistles" gal-I go for ports and things like the solarium/adults only areas on ship.
I think I like the Jewel of the Seas the best so far. I like the indoor solarium(perfect for a late nite swim and hot tub), outside seating in the WJ and there was just something charming about the ship that you can't quite put your finger on. Also had perfect weather and met awesome people on that cruise so that might be a factor.

On the Freedom, I LOVED the Flowrider!!!! (If not for DW would have spent the whole week there) I also like the Ice shows and the ice skating but wouldn't ruin my cruise without it.

I think I have to go with eleven night vs. seven nights and hopefully in the not to distant future experience the Oasis class.
