Winter Vacation FUN!

 We took a little break from the cold Virginia weather and flew down to Florida for a cruise. 
We met up with some friends, old and new!  
 We sailed on Royal Caribbean's, Freedom of the Seas.  We went to the Bahamas, St. Thomas and St. Maarten.  Let me take you on a little tour of the ship.

 One of the most popular areas on the ship was the pool deck.  They had what looked like a real fun kids area and then a large family pool.
 Above the pool area was the run/walking track.  Do you see the window area sticking out of the ship.  That is a large hot tub.  It was a great place to relax.

They had a large indoor promenade area in the middle of the ship.  It had shops, bars, and restaurants.  They also had parades and dance parties going on during the week.  I am not sure I would have like a room facing this area.
 They had a Johnny Rockets Restaurant on board.  We ate there for lunch one day.  The food was pretty good, but the best part was the hot fudge sundaes. 

Below is the flow rider.  I didn't get a picture of it in action :( , but people can boogie board or surf on this man made wave machine.  It looks very fun, but dangerous.

 Here are the greens on the ship.  It is a fun way to spend part of your day at sea.
 The eagle is made all out of natural ingredients.  The chef gave a great demonstration of food art.  It is amazing what they can do with a knife and fruit!
Here is a shot from the a lounge at the top/back of the ship.  It was a huge ship compared to what we have sailed on before.  
Tomorrow I will share with you more of our adventure!

Thanks for stopping by!
