Have a great cruise, looking forward to your review.

 

Any info you can offer on table limits will be helpful.  Also wondering if they have a Let It Ride table for my wife.  Thanks in advance.

 

We loved Coco Cay last March and definitely will be returning on our Freedom cruise end of October.

 

I will find out for you guys.

 

Coco Cay looks amazing from everything I have seen, part of me wants to wait and enjoy it sometime that isn't the middle of summer, and part of me knows that tomorrow is never guaranteed..

I am on the same sailing, in a comped casino room as well. I always moaned about the drive to FLL/MIA from where I am, (Tampa area) but now... not a word. I cannot wait to get on board! 

 

Yep, so okay with the drive now lol. Good luck in the casino, hope we all take them for lots of money 🙂

Hi, My husband and I will be doing a b2b on Freedom in October.  Also compliments of the casino.  I will be following your report closely.  My two favorite things to do is gamble and play Pickleball.  If you have spare time, could you go to the sports court and see if they have a Pickleball court on Freedom.  Sometimes on the daily planner they have special times if there is an actual court.  We would like to know if we should pack our paddles.

Thanks,

Arlene

I assume you meant a game organized - the court is certainly there. The RCI app may show something like that but availability is varied so if someone reports it available on their sailing doesn't mean it will be organized for your sailing.

Glad to know that the court is there.  If there is no organized game we will see if we can get one going!

Thanks for the info!

Was running behind so I skipped daytona to save some time.

 

I'm at M's place now and starving. Need food lol.

 

J is no longer going with us so it is just M and I. They work together and staffing issues they are not both going to be able to go.

 

I'll update more later once I solve my hunger issues 🙂

The sports staff are usually accommodating but COVID has changed the rules for just about every thing.

Aww man! Too bad J is not able to go on the cruise. 

 

All these comp'd casino cruises on this thread. EXCELLENT!  I'm a cheapskate and budget $100 on cruise ships for the week to gamble. YEP,  you guessed it I should just keep it in my pocke which is what I do sometimes and treat myself to a specialty dinner. LOL!!

 

Enjoy your cruise.

Pizza.

The pizza was made in a wood stove and really hit the spot.

 

Gonna catch up with M for a bit - this is the first time I've seen her since March 2020. I'll catch up on replies before I turn in  for the night.

I was on that cruise originally but had to move to 10/3 when the ships changed because M had some kind of special room that was not available once they got around to moving her booking.

I know no Let it rude tables but could you check other table poker games they have? Like 3 card, ultimate hold em? I usually hang in that area that my husband calls the circus game area! He prefers craps and blackjack! Games of skill!
