Dec 12th 2006 7:05PM Well I was on board Freedom the week of 11/26-12/3 and all i have to say is that that ship is not all cracked up to what they publicised it to be. I mean come on i am 16 years old I had my birthday on board and all i got was a little piece of cheese cake with a candle.I am not so impressed considering my parents told our waiter it was my "Sweet 16" and they would pay extra for them to mae it extra special. And for the whole sickness thing it was HORRIBLE! out of the 25 people that were in our group 9 of them got deathly ill. The whole bull crap that RCI is putting out about there only being about 400 ppl sick our week was a HUGE missleading estimation! our waiter and the Teen Staff told me that the week before our sailing date there were 1,300 people sick and RCI didnt wanna leak it out to the public. So yea I wont ever go on another RCI cruise and that is pretty bad coming from a 16 year old who should have had the time of her life on the wolrd's Largest cruise ship!!!
