I just got back from a Western Caribbean Cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas and Wow! What an amazing ship!! A few of the many really cool ship highlights are the FloRider, Ice Skating Rink, Rock Climbing wall, Royal Promenade and 9-hole miniature golf course. The FloRider is one of the coolest ship highlights and it’s not only fun for the riders but for the spectators as well. This video will sum up why.

Yotel

June 25th, 2009

Now you can rent out a small version of a luxury hotel room inside select airports. The Yotel can be booked hourly or overnight. It’s basically a mini luxury hotel room that is located in the terminal buildings at London’s Heathrow’s Terminal 4 and London Gatwick’s South Terminal. Amsterdam Schilphol has one as well. Each Yotel is within a few minutes walking distance from check in, arrivals and other terminals.

There are 3 types of rooms available:

  • Premium Cabin
  • Standard Cabin
  • Twin Cabin

You can see more details about each cabin on the Yotel.com website. These rooms are great for taking a quick nap in between flights, refreshing your self, catching up on some work or just to relax and watch some TV.

Here is a review from a guest who stayed in the Heathrow Yotel.
