Default Just back from the Freedom on 10/01

Wow, where do I begin? The short version of my opinion of the Freedom is AWESOME!!!! The longer one is: She is a beautiful ship. The service is tops. The food is great. The on board shows and productions are very good. The gaming in the casinos are good. The slots were loose. There were several $1,000 dollar winners. Several $500 and $600 dollar winners. There was one woman who hit the big jackpot of $20,000. A gentleman who hit $6,000. There was another gent who hit $3,500. The tables were paying off too! The new beds are the most comfortable ever. We were told that all RCI ships will be outfitted with the new beds by April of 2007. You must try one they are great. Captain Erik, I found him to be very friendly and aproachable. Very nice man. Ken Rush, what can i say about KR. The man knows how to party. I witnessed it myself on the Royal Promanade. There is so much more about the Freedom. You must see and do it for yourself.
OH! By the way my wife and i did parasail on Labadee it was AWESOME!!!!!

And, gee, Seadog, how was your cruise? Did you enjoy it? HAHAHA

Sounds like Ms. Freedom impressed you. Welcome home, and don't be afraid to book another one. You can do land vacations and cruises, too!

By land vacations i think you mean getting off the ship at ports. we did that also. We exited the ship at every port and did the excursions. The only port DW and i had not been to was MoBay. Did a very nice tour there. In fact we did excursions on Coz as well as GC. as you can tell we did not sleep much. a lot of late nights. And thats fine too. By the way, for the Diamond and Diamond Plus members the Diamond Club is fun.

I just got off the Navigator and we saw your ship beside ours in Georgetown. They are both beauties.
