» Freedom of the Seas Arrives

Ships Attending: {Freedom of The Seas}
Date: {29/04/06}

Well getting up at 5.30 wasn't fun - but knowing you're about to greet the world's largest cruiseship makes it all worthwhile! Boarding a small vessel we awaited Freedom and eventually at about 6.45 slowly but surely she came into view off Calshot spit. It was a breath-taking sight as the huge vessel came towards us. I snapped away quite happily in the chilly morning air and it was nice to see so many other people out on the shores at Hythe and Mayflower park - good on you all!

Later in the day I was lucky enough to get a tour of Freedom of the Seas and see for myself the immense size and quality of the ship. Built quite obviously for the American market there is little that Freedom can't offer - you'd never ever be bored of that I'm sure!. I think my favourite part on our whistle top tour would have to be the Royal Promenade which was very grand and almost had a surreal feeling, a definite street atmostphere even though it wasn't filled with real holiday makers as yet.

If you get a chance, I highly recommend a look at Freedom of the Sea's, she's an awesome sight indeed!
