This and That Aboard Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

After I published the post about the Paws for a Cause Cruise aboard Freedom of the Seas I knew I would get a question about where the dogs went potty.  Sure enough, the question was asked by Beatrice of The Frog and Penguin.  If Beatrice wondered about this, I am sure others did also.  Soooo, above you see one of the doggie rest stops that is lined in plastic and filled with wood chips.  The dogs know what to do here.  ;)  During the Paws for a Cause Cruise, the boxes were conveniently located on the aft part of deck 4 where a generous area was roped off where the dogs could also run and play when they were not working.
A convenience for guests is the touch screens around the ship where you can find what is happening and a map to find your way to get there.
And, finally, a view of the dining room at breakfast time on a sea day.

Life is good at sea. 

Best,
Lois

I would love to have my breakfast while looking out to sea. What a great view to have.

I think it's quite possible I'd spend all my time in the dining room if I were aboard! Something about white linens and a view of the sea I suspect. Beautiful photos, as always!

The touch screens are a marvelous idea - because if anybody would get lost, it would be me!

Interesting doggy potty! Catching up again after a layoff from reading and commenting.

Critters are keeping me running, but its nice to spend a moment with you on your travels.
