I will post a detailed review when i get a few minutes to compose it.
couple of highlights - Ice Show is great, Main Pool area is wonderful, not overcrowded and they do have "chair police" if you leave your lounge unattended for more than 15 minutes the patrol will scoff up your towel.
FlowRider looks like tons of fun we could stay there all day just watching other passengers. Staterooms are good sized, beds are comfy. Grand Promenade is amazing, marble floors that you could eat off of. Martini bar is nice and cozy they make a great Cosmopolitan. We had a few issues with slow service in the dining room, but a little chat with the Maitre D solved that problem. The food in the Windjammer buffet was good but it was not warm. The Crypt disco is a cool place if you are 20 something. Its very gothic with crushed black seats, gargoyles things like that. The cantileavered hot tubs that are attached to the side of the ship are great, especially at night when you can look up thru the dome at all the stars.

Welcome back Lisa K. Sounds like you had a great time. The folks around here are the best advertisement for the cruiselines. Wonder if they realize that? Just the little you wrote makes me want to go book a cruise on the Freedom.

I know you wish you were on the ship still.
