Default Show Reservations?

First time With RCCL, and read that I need to reserve to see the shows, is there a cost too? Do I just go to the pursers and scan my cards and reserve the shows? how doe it work?

No, you do not need to reserve the shows on the Freedom. On the Oasis-class ships, yes, you do.

Talk to your agent and let them help you with all the arrangements.

That is what I did when I sailed on the Allure and the Oasis "twice".
She took care of it for us.

IIRC the only thing that required a 'reservation' on Freedom was the Ice show. You can reserve them now, (from 90 to 4 days out from your cruise) by going online to your reservation. If you don't pre-book, then they will announce several times where and when to pick up tickets and you just show up and get them. IIRC we went to Studio B ( the Ice rink) to get them. Don't miss the show, it is superb..

I agree book them online in RCI's website. Much easier and much faster. This way you can see the shows and times and dates for yourself. We did this for our cruises on the Oasis and the Allure.

We also reserved our shows on the Allure and the Oasis. There is no fee.
Find your booking on their website and figure out when you want to go. Reserve it.
If you are reserved and get to the show early pass all the people who don't have reservations and at door the attendant will scan your card and let you in. At 10 minutes before the show the waiting crowd is allowed to enter and there is no more scanning of cards. It is a great system.

Just keep in mind, if you don't have reservations and choose to wait in line, there is no guarantee of getting a few seats together or seats at all. So, it is a good idea to make reservations, just kind of hard to do before you cruise, kind of locks you into time's, etc.

But even though you have a reservation, it doesn't mean you have to show up. If you decide to skip and go to another some other show time you just have to wait with the crowd in line.

MN,
Or, you can try to make another reso if spaces are available. We did the stand by twice and got in both times, although seats are limited at that point, but we got to see the show.
