Shrek is Here! Dreamworks Aboard Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

It is Memorial Day in the United States and it will be celebrated in many ways.  It is the unofficial beginning of Summer and is often the first cook out for some of us.  Others will travel to see relatives; some will be working.  The important part of the day, though, is our remembrance of those who served and sacrificed to keep us free.  I hope you enjoy this special day wherever you are.

We are at sea this Memorial Day and I have pictures of Dreamworks to share!
It was so much fun to see the Dreamworks Parade aboard Freedom of the Seas!  As are all Royal Caribbean productions, this one is spectacular!
The ship's Royal Promenade, more than a US football field long becomes the parade ground...
for the Dreamworks characters that have come to life.

 Fifty five people are involved to pull off this spectacular event.

 Look!  It's Princess Fiona!  In addition to being Shrek's wife, she is also the official God Mother of Royal Caribbean's newest and largest ship, Allure of the Seas.
 Princess Fiona's mounted guards are here...
...and, if you look carefully in the center of the above image, her husband, Shrek, is here, too!

 In addition to having all these wonderful creatures on board, there is a TV channel dedicated to running Dreamworks movies.  We have seen some we didn't know existed.  They are terrific!
 The Grand Finale is when the confetti rains down upon all of us 

 This was soooo much fun!

Good morning,

This place is amazing. I couldn't take pictures fast enough during the parade. I have to go again with my big camera. I hadn't planned to be at the parade, but when starting time got close decided to stay where we were in a very good spot to watch it.

The ship in the header is Freedom of the Seas where all of these other pictures are taken. I took that header shot while we were at anchor in Grand Cayman.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind comments.

Very best,

What a spectacular parade! Your images capture it wonderfully.
