Freedom of the Seas Makes Waves

Wednesday, May 10, 2006
With its FlowRider surf park, cantilevered whirlpools and colorful H20 Zone silhouetted against the backdrop of The Statue of Liberty, Freedom of the Seas, the RCL’s latest cruise ship, made its U.S. premiere today. When measured from the waterline to the top of the funnel, Freedom of the Seas towers 208 ft. tall, approximately the same height as two Statues of Liberty, placed head to toe. At 160,000 GRT and holding 3,634 guests double-occupancy, Freedom of the Seas is the largest cruise ship in the world. The first in Royal Caribbean’s new Freedom class, she sails seven-night Western Caribbean itineraries from Miami calling in Cozumel, Mexico; George Town, Grand Cayman; Montego Bay, Jamaica; and Royal Caribbean’s private destination, Labadee, Haiti.
