Default Freedom of the Seas Question

Sailing FOS 2/14-2/21 Eastern and was wondering:

*Does Royal Caribbean have towels available for use on and off the ship?
*Do the balcony room balcony doors stay open or do we have to rig?
*Has anyone participated in the poker crawl on FOS?

Have received our documents and are still dancing

Bags are packed and we just need the calendar to cooperate.

Thanks for all the advise.

Safe sailing-

Only can comment that you can check out towels to go off the ship.
Not sure your age or likes, but St. Thomas boat trip to St. John for snorkeling was fantastic, and took a cab to Maho beach by the airport on the dutch side of st. Maartin, also fantastic. Avoid segway tour on St. Maartin.
Poker tourney is 99 dollars to enter if that is what you mean by poker crawl.

Also try Portofino Restaurant on the FOS its well worth the extra $ person. Just make sure you reserve early if you go.. And if you like you got to try the tiramisu its SOOOOO good. Below is a review of it..

I've understood that lately, you have to sign towels out from the pool deck and will need your sign/sail card to do so. When I was on Freedom they were always left in the cabin each day as needed, as long as the used ones were there. So, they've changed the policy, but you can still use them for shore excursions, or going to the beach, just don't loose it, or they will charge you the cost of a towel.

Donna after you said that about signing out towel's at the pool deck i remembered having to do that as well. If we had used our "pool towel's" and left them in the bathroom the stateroom attendant would just replace them for us. Not sure if they all do that or if he just was doing it to be nice.. I wonder if you lost a towel how much it would cost you$$$$$....

Thank you everyone for the info.

And Congratulations to you luv2cruiserccl. Am sure a wedding on a ship would be awesome.

We are zipping the bags as I write. Very excited for our first RCCL cruise.

Let's keep our fingers crossed the weather in the northeast lets up. We are flying out of PA. Thanksfully we have a couple days before the ship leaves
