Winter Travel Special: Set Sail on Freedom of the Seas with Royal Caribbean
By Tiffany Forte
Enjoy the innovative dining and entertainment options and children’s programming on Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas cruise ship as part of the Royal Advantage revitalization and enhancement program. Freedom of the Seas alternates an Eastern and a Western Caribbean seven-night, round-trip itinerary from Port Canaveral on Florida’s Space Coast. Added bonus: Universal Orlando Resort and Royal Caribbean International have teamed up to offer 3/4-day park admission to Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure.
With new technology advancements like enhanced Wi-Fi and interactive televisions, Royal Caribbean guests experience greater convenience on their cruise vacations. Technology doesn’t stop there. Cruisers can screen newly released and long-time favorite movies in 3-D. Plus, outdoor LED video walls, measuring at approximately 18.5 feet, overlook the main pool area and feature movies and entertainment programs for couples, friends and families alike for daytime delight or an evening under the stars. Also, signature additions include a DreamWorks Animation movie studio experience with a parade down the Royal Promenade and interactive character breakfasts.
And what about the food and libations? Guests will love gourmet cupcake treats at The Cupcake Cupboard. The 1940s-style shop has sweet offerings daily at a la carte pricing and hands-on decorating classes. The popular wine lounge has a new trendier décor where guests can enjoy an assortment of fine wines. Try the new automated serving system with a self-pour option stocked with 48 notable wine selections.
Children’s programming includes the exciting “Imaginocean!” puppet show, which stars glow-in-the-dark underwater puppet characters exclusively for Royal Caribbean. The Royal Babies and Tots nursery care program is for little ones from six to 36 months old. Trained professionals provide a safe and interactive vacation for a parent’s most precious cargo while the adults have fun on their own. The nursery offers various playgroups and activities designed exclusively for Royal Caribbean with partners Fisher-Price and Crayola.
