Well folks, I booked my next cruise. We will be going on the inaugural voyage of the all-new Freedom Of The Seas! It wasn't cheap, and I had to stretch things to justify it in my mind, but I'm doing it. So on June 4th we will be heading out from Dodge Island along with a capacity crowd .

I am looking forward to doing periodic live updates from the ship. It is still several months away though, so now the anticipation begins!

Way to go Dave,

If I supply an extra suitcase can you check it at the curb? After that I will sleep on the lounge chairs.

As far as checking in...

Enjoy the ship and tell us your adventures upon your return.

I plan to do an extensive review of this cruise - perhaps the first published if possible.

Lisa,

This certainly goes against my recent interest in smaller ships! But as you said, the innovations are what piqued my interest. Plus the inaugural cruise coincided with my big break of off-days.

We expect pics of you boogie boarding on the bow of the ship in your review!!!

My four boys are eagerly waiting for their chance to surf the waves or the Freedom.

Hey mercedesno,

If Dave boogie boards on the front of the ship he will be in the ocean.

That Flowrider is on the stern that way if you fall off you dont get run over by the ship.

My bad...I thought the wave was in the bow. I would still like to see the pics of him on a boogie board. Let's take a vote...anyone else...

YEA

Hi everyone. Hey Dave 56, we will be sailing also on the inaugural Freedom cruise. I too am very excited. We are taking our 16 yr old son, he should be well entertained. By the way, the excursions are available to book with RCCL, just in case you didn't know yet. I booked mine early last week, and one of them was already "not available". The cruise is very expensive, so we got a inside cabin, and are splurging on our excursions. I am sure this topic will pop up later down the road. I would love to meet you, over a soda/drink, and chat cruising. I could use some good pointers, from an seasoned cruiser. I can't wait. Lil' Lori
