213 Royal Caribbeans Freedom of the Seas, first U.S. sailing with Shannon Ford

Shannon Ford joins us this week to discuss her recent sailing aboard Royal Caribbeans, Freedom of the Seas. This was the first U.S. Cruise to take place since the Covid lockdown, and she does an excellent job filling us in on everything she experienced. We discuss planning for this cruise, new Covid 19 restrictions put in place by Royal Caribbean, vaccinated vs. non-vaccinated opportunities onboard, dining, entertainment, the kids clubs, and of course a lot of tips for those of you who may be sailing with Royal Caribbean, or other cruise lines soon. Shannon also has an amazing YouTube channel, where she has uploaded videos from her family’s cruising and park experiences. She has several up already, for this cruise aboard Freedom of the Seas. In addition, you can find her weekly on My DVC Points, DVC Newscast. We hope these experiences will help you and your family plan for your next cruise, whether its with Disney or beyond. Bon Voyage everyone!
