Freedom of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International

Lift anchor on a life changing cruise holiday with the Freedom of the Seas, from Royal Caribbean International.

Built in 2006, the Freedom of the Seas is one of the largest ocean liners afloat, and is literally packed with a vast array of entertainment and facilities that simply cannot be found anywhere else.

Destinations and Itineraries

As one might expect from a Royal Caribbean Ship, the Freedom of the Seas spends its time cruising between Caribbean islands from its home in Port Canaveral, close to the NASA Space Centre. British passengers fly to Orlando and then transfer to the ship after an overnight stay in Florida. The first port of call on the Eastern Caribbean Cruise is a private island in Coco Bay in the Bahamas, where a host of watersports activities are on offer.

After a day at sea, the ship then arrives at St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and then travels on to St Maarten in the Leeward Islands. Heading home the ship spends two days at sea before returning to Port Canaveral. Western Caribbean cruises also last for seven nights with passengers transferring from Orlando. On this route, the ship spends a day at sea before arriving at Labadee in Haiti where an array of watersports become passenger's first opportunity to take to the Caribbean waters. The next day the ship arrives at Falmouth in Jamaica where passengers can see the historic wooden buildings of the well preserved old town. The Cayman Islands' Grand Cayman is the next port of call with its picture-perfect beaches and more diving and snorkelling opportunities.

The Mexican island of Cozumel is the next and final port of call with its Mayan ruins and beautiful coral reefs. The ship then spends a leisurely two days at sea, slowly making its way back to Port Canaveral. The eastern and western Caribbean cruises continue right until next year. As the ship alternates between each itinerary, it is possible to book a 14-night cruise taking in all the islands on both routes.

The Freedom of the Seas is a giant floating city, the newest, biggest and best ship in the Royal Caribbean International fleet.
