Viking Crown - Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

That big round space ship "thing" at the top of the Freedom of the Seas is Royal Caribbean's trademark Viking Crown Lounge.  This lounge has grown substantially since RCCL's first ships.  Aboard the first ship, Song of Norway, and some ships that followed, guests were required to go outside and climb an exterior stairway to reach a very small Viking Crown.  If you wanted to go there in the evening, the ship was usually at sea where there was plenty of wind so it guaranteed a "bad hair" evening.  My how times have changed!
Now access to the Viking Crown is via elevator or interior stairs.  From this side of the lounge (above image) the view is of the pool deck.
The lounge is circular so there are also spectacular views of the sea.
 The Viking Crown is one of the best places on board to enjoy sail-away or a sunset.
 This is the view of the pool deck from inside Deck 12, just below the Viking Crown.

I never run out of places to explore here.  I hope you are having fun exploring with me.

All the best,

The one cruise we went on was on the Song of America (not part of the RC fleet any more but still sailing under a different name with another company) and the Viking Crown was our place for before dinner drinks. It was so high we felt like we were piloting the ship. Great views all around.
