Default Page 3 Freedom, Final Thoughts

The ship is decorated in soft tones, and light woods, for the most part. Lots of seating done in comfy ultra suede. The Champagne bar is done in soft tones, with a zen like atmosphere. The Japanese style round windows there, are beautiful, but sadly look out onto the lifeboats.






The dining room is certainly impressive, 3 stories, to me, looking like victorian decor...nice spacing between tables...The menu looked to be a temporary one....certainly not the stlye of a fine dining room..Not much interested me, so I ordered a chicken dish...it was sooo spicy, my eyes watered. A dish, I was surprised that would be offered to the masses, that had such a kick. Service was very good... dinner was at 8:45, way to late for us.

Saturday was formal night, and the media was invited to a cocktail party in the Viking Crown lounge. Lots of goodies to munch on, and my new favorite drink..the martini! We then went down to Portofino's, where we enjoyed dinner with a lively group, for a nice night.

The internet area, has about 25 computers, not enough I think for the Freedom population. The service started off very slow, got better, but was still not what I would have expected. I hope things change, but have patience. The Library was fully stocked, and a comfortable area.

While I certainly don't discount ever sailing this class, I felt a bit overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the ship. In high season, I am sure the lines we had will be magnified by many, and I just sense this will be a popular family and younger crowd ship, and they will all absolutley fall in love with the endless activities, and high tech play.

I was thrilled to sail her and have the opportunity to see it all
