It's been awhile for me but I'm back trying to plan another family cruise for Jan.'09...possibly on the Freedom. A huge/primary reason I'd select this ship is because of the flowrider. Here are my questions:
1. The cost?
2. Realistically, how many times can one ride it in one day (crowd-wise/waiting time)?
3. Is it ever closed for maintenance or broken? If so, about how often?
4. What are the hours that it is open?
My "kids" are in their 20's but I'm sure this would be their main reason to pick this ship so it is really important that they can get adequate use of this feature. Thanks everyone, it's good to be back on this site again. Suzi
