Default FREEDOM CLASS INSIDE OR BALCONY ON ANOTHER CRUISE LINE

Hi everyone...I am really needing some help.
I love BALCONY.. it makes the vacation. However, I have been dying to get on the LOS or FOS, since they came out...and the last 2 years...have chosen CCL Valor and NCL Dawn because of price. Now, the prices have skyrocketed...and I could of course kick myself for not going two years ago...but here I am. I can get balcony on some other cruise line for almost the same price of a promenade. From what I have read Prom is not so bad. Have any of you down graded? How do you feel about it? Are the prices on RCCL having you make other choices?
The itin on the Freedom class ships is no big deal, other than Labadee, which I find awesome. What are your thoughts?
Please help this RCCL fan....

A current marketing tool is "the ship is the destination." IF that is the case for you, then a Freedom class ship is the ticket. Just my vote tho, Robbie

I love the Freedom class ships so much that if they said the only cabin available is a rope around your neck being towed by the ship.....no problem. Like I have said before on this forum, I only book Promenade cabins, but to each his own. I am only in the room to change and sleep.

Once you get on that ship and see what it has to offer not having a balcony will not make a difference!


ENJOY! 8)
