We've stayed in Promenade Cabins twice, both times on deck 8. Like being higher and looking out the slanted windows. Always had a great view for parades and people watching.

The two of us each carry one bag. We always carry on our toiletries as we wouldn't want anything leaking into our checked bag of clothing. Our other small bag has more important items like...
Freedom Self Assist
Your cruise compass will tell you the time for self assist. I remember it was either 6 or 6:30 am. Just get your stuff together and walk off deck 4.

Just got off Freedom yesterday. Both formal nights are non smoking in the casino. You can still smell the stale smoke from the previous night, but at least you don't have smoke blown in your face. ...

I had a horrible experience getting my hair cut many years ago. Since then, I've cut my own hair. Haven't been to a salon since the 80's and do a darn good job if I do say so myself. I even cut my...

I usually wear a few outfits again and again, but I always get something new for photo night.
I would certainly wear it, it's beautiful.

Most if not all cabins now have hair dryers in the drawer, but I for one prefer to take my own.

My DH doesn't wear an undershirt anytime, even if it's cold, but that's a matter of personal taste I guess.

The number varies, but we've never had enough to hang everything.

You ARE allowed to take your curling iron along with you. Don't know how that one got started.
Mariner Promenade
In my opinion the promenade cabins are so much better than a regular inside cabin. We were on the Mariner, promenade deck 8 and absolutely loved it. It didn't give me that closed in feeling I get...

Whatever you decide to do, I certainly wouldn't recommend hiring a local to give you a tour. We did that one time and it will be our last time. It is extremely dangerous outside the fenced area in...
Name that tune!
The last time we cruised on Mariner of the Seas they played "Love Today by Mika" every night in the theater as people were arriving. Anyone know what song is currently being played on Freedom of the...

My DH & I prefer the promenade cabins. We loved the first one so much on Mariner, we booked another one on Freedom. We like deck 8 with the slanted windows. I cannot stay in a typical inside room...

I do basically the same thing. I have a couple of dressy blouses that I wear with a black skirt. It appears that I have 2 completely different outfits, and a bonus is they don't wrinkle.

We did experience a similar situation. We cruised with 2 other couples (good friends before cruise), but one couple wouldn't let us have a moment to ourselves during the cruise and it strained our...

Day 4
Ocho Rios, Jamaica....we expected the local to be a little pushy.
However when we came out of the dock area through the security gate we were not prepared for the number of local men – mainly...

I agree the ships water is fine, and we always drink it with meals, but I would like the convenience of carrying a water bottle at times rather than a glass with ice and was just curious about what I...
Water Package?????
I recently read a RCCL ship review (can't remember what ship now) and the wife bought a water package. It's supposed to be just like the soda card, only for bottled water. Anyone ever heard of such...
Freedom of the Seas
YIPEEEEE!!!! Welcome to Port Canaveral.:D
Saved $140
You gotta love RCCL for honoring price reductions. They made my day! Of course I'm sure we'll spend the difference on board. Thanks RCCL, you're the best!!!!:D:D:D

We just loved our (deck 8) promenade cabin on the Mariner. I just can't do an inside without a window. It's too closed in for me personally. With the window overlooking the promenade I don't get...

Love the larger ships, just my taste. Some of the cruiselines have cut the number of ports from 4 to 3 for a 7 day cruise. That's not necessarily a bad thing if there is plenty to do onboard. That...

Congratulations on your win. My DH won $100 once playing bingo, but winning a cruise would really be exciting. We'll keep trying and maybe someday it will be us.:D
