Sail Date: Mar 2009
Cabin:
Traveled with children

Our trip did start off so good we landed in Ft Lauderdale and had a reservation with Hertz to rent a Suv for the drive to Miami, well after standing in line for 1 hour and then being told that they did not have any Suv's available (booked in January)they tried to put us into a small Ford car. It took us over 2 hours to get something that would carry the 4 of us and our luggage. I was not impressed as we lost our time to check out Miami.

Getting onto the Freedom was a breeze with no wait, although the wife and myself argued who's credit card we would use for the onboard charges, the person behind the counter was laughing and said this happens alot.

The size of the ship is rather overwhelming and something to behold when you first board.

Cabin Review
