Default Liberty or Freedom?

Looking at a cruise next summer with my family. Since these 2 are sister ships, are their any differences? Any prefences?

Any one booked any of the family rooms?

Liberty and freedom are sister ships layout will be the same only difference might be the decor.

I guess you would have to choose by itinerary and/or price.

Actually, right now our own Paul Motter from Cruisemates is on LIberty and has also cruised on Freedom. I'm sure when he returns he can tell us of any differences, good and bad.

It is not cheaper than 2 rooms, but the double sized larger balcony and living room, we can all hang out in without all craming into one room.

Default do you mind my asking

How much does a Royal Family Suite cost for 5? I booked a Family Ocean Room for 5 and although a family suite wasn't available I am curious what it MIGHT have been.

What is the difference between the 2? Do they both have balconies?

Paul,
I paid 2200 for the first 2 then 399 per person after that. Min. 5 to book the room. I booked this room in dec. of 06.

Jackie.... Royal family is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, with a seperate living and dinning area, and a very large balcony. You can go online and see it.

Default !?

NO WAY! If my math is right, that means...uh....@$3,400 for all of you for the Royal Family Suite!? Or is it $2,200+2,200+399+399+399? Either way....I feel dumb now...we are paying over $7,000 for the ocean view family room (with the port taxes and all).



Do me a favor and lie to me and tell me you misplaced a decimal or something....
