Just booked cruise on Freedom
We just booked Eastern Caribbean cruise on Freedom....December 2 2012. We got a junior suite (JS under suite category when picking rooms). I think it's a bigger room???

We are going to Universal Studios before. have not booked that yet..Too early.

How cold will it be on cruise in December??

Oh ya did I mention I am so excited??!!!

Junior Suites are a good value. Large closet and more floor space. Plus you get double points for your Crown & Anchor membership. You do not get suite amenities however, such as concierge lounge access (unless you are a diamond plus or pinnacle club member).

Nobody can predict the weather. Usually early December is still quite mild in south Florida and the eastern Caribbean.

How do I get my cruise ticker?? I think you did it for me last time..

Some how on last cruise I signed up for Crown & Anchor membership, but did not sign up husband. Travel Agent signed him up, hoping they (RCCL) will give him the credit.

Thanks for your help

Look at the 2nd post in this thread for ticker info.

Well I guess I was not paying attention at all when booking cruise.. We booked the Grand Suite not Junior Suite

Wow! There's a big difference between a Junior Suite and a Grand Suite.

Behold a Grand Suite:

Plus you get the Concierge service. You'll be able to access the Concierge Lounge where you can get complimentary cocktails from 5pm to 8:30pm.
Oh yeah, and there's the bathroom...

THANKS!!!! We went through TA..I do not remember her mentioning that. (concierge lounge) I am not sure why I was un sure..We were comparing pricing of JS and Grand suite..I guess I was (am) too excited just to be on cruise

Congratulations! I can only dream of a Grand Suite, I am so excited for you!!!! The weather is usually fantastic, but you can never really predict. We did a Christmas/New Years cruise a few years ago and had the worst weather we had ever had. The last 3 days were great, but the first 11, not so much. It wasn't bad enough to stop us from having fun, though. However, the other December cruises I've done have been fabulous weather. We're off in December this year, so I'm hoping for plenty of warmth and sunshine, but if not, I'll still be on a cruise:)

Candice that's wonderful. What a long time to wait! When you're sitting at work and break out in an ear to ear grin, only the cruise-a-holics will truly understand why.
Can't you just picture yourself sitting on the balcony seeing the turquoise water and smelling the salt air?

Candice R 10-06-2011 02:13 PM

Poor mom...Already doing that.. But try not to think about it too much..Over a year away.

I thought we were going to Universal before cruise, but got a text from husband asking if I
Wanted to go to Disney or Universal? I am just happy to be on cruise. We do have some planning to do before cruise.
