RCI Debuts World's Largest ...

Now Here's Freedom: With it’s FlowRider® surf park, cantilevered whirlpools and colorful H20 Zone silhouetted against the Statue of Liberty backdrop, Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas today made her U.S. premiere, with tons of never-before-seen features. Carrying up to 3,634 passengers, Freedom sails seven-nighters from Miami calling in Cozumel, George Town, Montego Bay, and Royal Caribbean’s private Labadee in Haiti. A few mega-highlights:

  • The first FlowRider® surfing simulator at sea, on the same deck as the multi-hued interactive sculpture garden in the H20 Zone water park.
  • The first cantilevered whirlpools at sea, suspended 112 feet above the ocean in the adults-only solarium, also featuring a pool flanked by hammocks.
  • Studio B the onboard skating rink open for skating lessons and free skating during the day while used to stage the original ice show by night.
  • At 1,215 sq. ft., the Presidential Suite sleeps 14 with an 810-sq. ft, outdoor living area with Jacuzzi and private bar.
  • The first boxing ring on a cruise ship in the Freedom Fitness Center, the largest-ever cruise ship gym.
  • The Royal Promenade entertainment boulevard, longer than a football field, for dining, shopping, bars and lounges, and the midnight parade.
  • Samsung Flat-paneled televisions and the line’s new bedding program in every stateroom.
  • A Sports Deck with a 9-hole miniature golf course, golf simulator, basketball and volleyball.
  • Also on Sports Deck, a bigger version of the industry revolutionizing rock-climbing wall that first appeared on Voyager of the Seas in 1999.
