Freedom of the Seas

Freedom of the Seas

The world’s biggest cruise ship when built, the Freedom of the Seas was delivered to Royal Caribbean International in 2006.

It is the first ship of the Freedom-class, essentially an enlarged and enhanced version of the Voyager-class project. Both classes, including Freedom, were built at the shipyard now known as Meyer Turku, in Finland.

Accommodating almost 4,600 passengers, the ship spent its inaugural season sailing in the Caribbean, with Miami as homeport. It was christened at Bayonne, New Jersey, in May 2006.
