Freedom of the Seas Cruise Vlog Day 5 - St. Maarten - Royal Caribbean

225 ratings | 37592 views
Brooke and Garrett head out on Day 5 of their Cruise vacation aboard the Freedom of the Seas. Two Islands in a row on this trip. They are now in St. Maarten Virgin Islands, the last port on their 7 day cruise. They endeavor not to spend money on an excursion and head into for a day full of fun and not spending more than 2 bucks. They take a trip to a resort to listen to an hour time share seminar to get free lunch, free drinks, free beach, free ride and then enjoy a walk downtown and back to the ship. Then back on the ship there was the Silent Disco and Party in the Street.

Divi is my favorite resort.I have flown into St Martins several times and always stay at Divi..When we cruise in we always go to divi to hang at the beach after visiting front and back street.After staying their for a week you have to drag me to the airport.Did you get to see gizmo the parrot?

Nice video, thanks! Do you know how far from the ship is Maho Beach? It's on the Dutch side. It's where the planes land extremely close to the beach. I'm going on the Anthem of the Seas next year and I don't want to pay for an excursion. Thank you so much for any info.
jade delarge (2 years ago)
Thank you! I will do that.

A 25 minute drive maximum. It's easy to catch a local public bus from Philipsburg that'll take you straight to Maho for US $1.50-2.00 per person.
SheaParker (2 years ago)
It's not that far actually. I wanted to go but I forget why we didn't

I definitely want to go on this cruise ship. How long was the time share seminar?
SheaParker (2 years ago)
They give u a tour of the property and run numbers with you for a little bit. Not very long. Definitely worth the money and food they give you and the beach time there

St Martin is not part of the Virgin Islands as you stated in your description above

How painful as the timeshare pitch? Did they pressure you hard?
SheaParker (3 years ago)
It wasn't painful. It was actually nice cuz you get to take a tour of the place and they don't pressure you that much so it was worth it for us :)

SheaParker (3 years ago)

Did you guys get wifi on the ship?
Sugoii (3 years ago)
Thanks for the info!
SheaParker (3 years ago)
You can if you wanna pay for it. We personally didn't. It feels great to be disconnected for a week

It's warm enough to swim and there are some restaurants you pay for on certain cruises. They have different restaurants you can spend to eat at but most are free

+Joz K thanks will do

There are several components to saving money on cruise trips. One place I discovered that successfully combines these is the Carls Cruise Cutter (check it out on google) definately the most incredible blueprint that I have ever heard of.Check out all the interesting information .

I really enjoyed watching your vlogs. Thanks for sharing! My husband & I are going on this ship in April for our 15 yr anniversary. It will be our first time cruising and I can't wait! I wanted to ask 2 questions, how did you find out about the time share option from this video, and do the pools and hot tubs close at night? Thanks in advance!
SheaParker (3 years ago)
We kind of just stumbled upon the time share option. We usually just walk off the cruise about and explore around a bit if we don't have a planned excursion to do and there was a guy with a booth telling us about it so we said ok . I believe the pools and tubs close at certain time but I forget what time. They will put a chain across the entrance of its closed. Mainly for cleaning
Abdulaziz aziz (3 years ago)
Hello nice trip :) I will go with this ship in march I have 2 Qs does the food free all or there is some restaurant you must pay for them? I ALSO i will go during spring break do you think will be a good weather for swimming ?

any thoughts on what to do cheap with i have kids?
Jennifer Bishop (4 years ago)
thanks for the update.   I have talked to a few people and they just suggested with kids walk around and see what you might want to get into and then when they get tired head back to the ship.... or stay close so that you can go back for lunch.   
SheaParker (4 years ago)
On the cruise ship itself there's lot to do with kids and you can enter the kids into clubs on the boat. There is staff members that will watch your kids along with other kids and they will do fun activities while u and husband relax . Off the ship the excursions can get expensive especially if you have a few kids with u. Me and my husband will do a cheaper excursion sometimes depending on what it is but usually the cheapest way to go is just get off the ship and walk around see what the island is like. Like shops and usually a beach is close so we usually just walk to the beach and enjoy the day at the beach and Grab maybe a drink or snack but it's cheaper to go back on ship to eat instead of spending more money to eat on land

Love your videos!  Just curious, what did you get with your $50 gift card? Brilliant way to save $$!
SheaParker (4 years ago)
I was kinda rushed cuz we had to catch a taxi and head back to the ship but I got a shirt for hubby that he loves wearing still and a beer mug for my dad and a butterfly paper weight for my mom. Little things that say what island we were on and that I was thinking about them :)
Devion Willis (4 years ago)
Yall cheap and money savers. I like it. People with budgets two thumbs up. #Bigtym3sav3r$
SheaParker (4 years ago)
Yes I definitely love saving money where I can because then you can afford to do more things
TheSwedishCruiser (4 years ago)
Lovely videos! I believe that Independence is servicing on a transatlantic itinerary. Next stop for it is Southampton 9 days from that day. That's almost the same cruise I'll be doing Nov 1st but the other way around and instead of 13 days It'll be 14 days with Cococay aswell. You're videos are nice to watch as it gives me a nice tease for whats to come. 
SheaParker (4 years ago)
Yay thanks for watching!! Have fun on your cruise!!!
