We started off our trip spending Saturday with a group of good friends that recently moved to Florida. They were so welcoming and invited us to their beach and the pool at their home, in addition to cooking for us. It was wonderful spending time with them!
Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas. We took the same ship about 2 years ago for our 5th anniversary.
The ship allows boarding at 1pm and we were there right on time to get our money's worth. We always head to the buffet first ;) Then the kids wanted to swim and play mini golf.
I thought these bracelets were in case kids got lost on board. Nope, in case of emergency so they know which life boat to load the child into. It put me at ease hearing that (gulp).
There's entertainment and a fancy three course meal every night.
They had a kid's club on board with different themes and activities every night: pirates, birthday party, camping, Thomas, superheros, etc. There was a parade on the final night.
Endless ice cream...
A royal promenade with shops...
We enjoyed every minute on board the days we were at sea.
