More Freedom of the Seas Christmas Decorations

 Good morning,

Here are a few more images of Christmas decorations on board Freedom of the Seas.  The tree above is outside of one of the dining rooms.
 Leading up to Christmas, every time I went for a stroll around the ship I found something new had been added.
 These are pictures of a Christmas village I found on Deck 3, outside one of the dining rooms.
 I attempted to take a little video of this, but after three times of people walking in front of my camera, I resorted to a collection of still shots.  ;)
 It's a beautiful display that certainly took a very long time to construct.  I loved seeing the manger scene and all the detail of the village.  The train was very nice, too, although not running while I was there.
Back in our suite, I added more to our tree.  I used that table runner (pattern here) I made when we came on board to cover the base of our small (Charlie Brown?) tree.
I believe I have already posted a picture of the tree with the little blue baskets (pattern for larger version here) filled with candies wrapped in gold paper.  Another tree addition are the little Santa hats (pattern here).  I went ashore a few days ago and bought two packages of candy canes.  :)
And, after taking the picture of the tree, I have added a blond Barbie doll dressed in a long gold dress (lower left corner of this image - I crocheted the dress, of course!) as our Christmas angel.  ;)

I made the springy doll (pattern here) dressed in blue in the above picture to give as a gift. 

So our little tree of hand made decorations is complete.

I hope your Christmas was Merry and that you are still enjoying the season!

Very best,

Ahhhh....how cute that you have your own little tree! You're so lucky to be sailing the warm seas now. It's so cold here. Enjoy the holidays!

There's something altogether brilliant about cruising thru the holidays....you can enjoy other people cooking and decorating.....

I've lost my Christmas mojo I guess! (But that's OK....since Christmas is over for this year!)

Hope your trip continues to delight!

Your little tree is lovely, and all the decorations around the ship are beautiful. It's got to be great fun to see the new things as they are added.

Good morning,

Yes, Christmas was wonderful on board. Now we are preparing to celebrate New Years out here. Today we are really rockin' and rollin' in the Atlantic. The storms you have up there are here, too, but without the snow. We have plenty of white caps to make up for the snow.

I have so enjoyed your blogs during this holiday season. I love all the snow, decorations, and thoughts of the season.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Very best,

The Christmas Season is not over in Puerto Rico. We are still in The Twelve Days of Christmas, which ends on January 6th. :)
