ship information

 

Freedom of the Seas launched in May 2006 as the world's biggest cruise ship. The vessel introduced a new class of ship for Royal Caribbean, measuring just shy of 155,000 tons with a double occupancy capacity of 3,634 passengers. It surpassed Cunard's gargantuan Queen Mary 2 by 7,000 tons and carried 1,014 more passengers.

The newly enhanced Freedom of the Seas® is a marvel of maritime engineering, packed with awesome innovations to stir your imagination. Catch a first-run movie in the 3D theater or poolside under the stars on the outdoor movie screen. Infuse color into your cruise with the artworks of the BRITTO Gallery or with the frosted confections of the Cupcake Cupboard. And finish the evening with a selection of reds or whites at the renovated, now-more-intimate Vintages wine bar.

Plus, enjoy all the revolutionary features Freedom of the Seas has always been known for – FlowRider® surf simulator, rock climbing wall, ice-skating rink, Royal Promenade, cantilevered whirlpools, mini golf course, H2O Zone water park, and much more.

What's Included in Your Cruise?


Almost everything is taken care of on this cruise ship with the original payment. Your stateroom accommodations, fantastic meals in the restaurants or cafés, snacks throughout the day, and even 24-hour room service is included. (A few of the special restaurants have an extra charge.) Entertainment and most other activities are part of your fare. (Tours are your choice and you pay for the ones you pick.)

The daily newsletter is your daily schedule of ship activities and entertainment events. It's also your guide to shipboard services with hours of operation. It is delivered nightly to your stateroom. Keep it close at hand, so you'll always know what's happening and where.

On the other hand, you may want to spend every day in a deck chair reading a book from the onboard Library or sitting in the Promenade at one of the shops, watching the people stroll by. You can also find a choice seat for the climbing wall and the surf simulator.
