Highlights
Aboard Freedom of the seas you will be able to find an ice-skating rink, rock-climbing wall, Royal Promenade (open 24 hours), extensive WiFi capabilities and connectivity for cell phones, full-sized, flat-screen TVs in every stateroom, theme bars and lounges, Adventure Ocean® youth facilities, restaurants, and much more!
Conference Facilities
Dedicated meeting space with breakout rooms and reception area.
Casino RoyaleSM
There's nothing like the excitement of a winning hand at poker or a slot machine paying off.
ShipShape® Day Spa and Fitness
The ShipShape Fitness Center is a world-class fitness center that offers everything from kickboxing to yoga, and features state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment.
Bonuses
Extensive WiFi capabilities and connectivity for cell phones. Because when you're on vacation it's great fun to let the folks at home know what they're missing.
Staterooms and balconies that are among the largest in the industry. Plenty of room to relax and plan your adventures.
A full-size, flat-screen TV in every stateroom. But then again, with all the incredible vacation activities to explore, try not to be too disappointed if you have trouble finding time to turn it on.
Activities
Entertainment & Activities
The gorgeous view isn't the only thing that will dazzle you onboard our cruise ships. See a contemporary musical stage production or catch a live band. Or be part of the fun with ballroom dancing lessons, ice-skating, or miniature golf. Then you can write home to tell everyone about it from our Internet Cafe.
Sports & Fitness
We offer so many sport and fitness choices that you'll break a sweat just trying to choose what to do next. Play basketball or volleyball on our Sports Deck. Climb our signature rock wall. Take a spinning class. Work out with one of our fitness trainers or enjoy a yoga class with an ocean view.
Spa
With so much to do onboard, plus countless adventures on land, remember to take time for yourself. After all, it's your vacation! So why not indulge a little and head to the ShipShape® Day Spa.

Treat yourself to a pedicure or facial, or go for something you've never tried before, like a seaweed wrap or aroma stone therapy massage. Let us soothe your body, smooth your skin and send your mind to a sensory heaven. You may even surprise yourself. What seems fun and extravagant, is actually a pathway to your own personal well-being.

Check out this interactive flash presentation so see some of the spectacular new attractions aboard Freedom of the Seasexternal link.
Dining, Bars, Lounges & Nightclubs
Dining on our cruise ships is as exciting as every other aspect of life onboard. There are so many different dishes and enticing atmospheres to experience you won't know where to start: Pasta at Portofino, Classic Burgers from Johnny Rockets, Gourmet five-course meals in the main dining room… In addition, all of our cruise ships offer low-fat ShipShape Day Spa menus, kids' menus, and, if you arrange in advance, Kosher menus. Specialty restaurants are not available on all ships.

The excitement onboard the cruise ship doesn't stop when the sun goes down. Dance the night away to hot Latin rhythms, watch a live band play your favorite song, laugh with a comedian, or enjoy a cocktail with some new friends in our bars, lounges and discos.

Cool, so I could get my nails done and watch TV ;-)a

It would be nice for a while, I'm sure but I prefer real travelling and wandering around a real environment. This is a holiday for people who's leisure time is spent in shopping malls.

Now now. I went on a cruise for my honeymoon. We traveled to Key West, Cozumel, Mexico and Costa Maya, Mexico. The ship is a blast on its own but the excursions offer you a chance to do lots of other things. We went snorkeling in Cozumel, had our picture taken underwater with fish, and drove across a remote area of Mexico through mangroves and farmland to a beautiful private beach. Sounds like you should check it out Dave. It could be fun for your next trip.

LOL.. I'm actually in Utah right now, although it's not far from home I purposely left my friend at home.. mostly because as much as I like him the two of us in my car for a whole day with his marlboro lights is more than I can stand..
and yes, new theme... somebody speak up. I don't want to choose just yet. I want to make sure this thing is good and self supporting before I start adding my strange ideas...

what about you? hmmm.....:D have you picked out a theme yet? I don't feel like doing a search there's getting to be more than a few threads to try to keep track of who said what on what week....

that's right.. sorry i'm beginning to lose track. and I agree we should let somebody new come up with an idea.. so far we haven't had any repeats and I kind of like it that way... So, if you haven't had a turn let us know....

How about something that is iconic of your town/city? You know; like the Empire State Building for NYC, the Golden Gate Bridge for SF, Eifel Tower for Paris, "The Big Potato" for Boise Idaho :-D (EDIT: My apologies to the inhabitants of Driggs, Idaho; the home of the ACTUAL "Big Potato") Could be an iconic person too I suppose...like Paul Bunyon.

[QUOTE=Meaty0]How about something that is iconic of your town/city?quote]

I like this idea. It would be interesting to see what different towns have as icons, as we know, most don't have something as well known as the Empire State building, but every town seems to have something. I know what I would do, as I've been talking about taking these pictures for a year, now. This would be just the kick-in-the-pants I need to get the job done.:lol: And, unlike last weekend, we don't have any scheduled shoots that would prevent us from getting out and about this week.

I like this idea.. and sorry. no big potato's that I know of.. But, there's always the sugar beet factory, or Lizard Butte or the Capitol building.. ok, I won't have a problem finding a composition.... Hey, were you doing a google search on Idaho landmarks?? :D :D
