Here are some images of the Welcome Aboard Party on board Freedom of the Seas. I was standing on the Royal Promenade beneath the Sky Bridge where the entertainment is presented. Above are two vocalists entertaining the crowd before the Captain will appear and present his officers.
It's a fun presentation followed by a formal dinner in each of the the three dining rooms. If you don't care for a formal dinner, there are other restaurants on board where you can be more casual.
Ah, cruising is such fun!
