» Freedom of The Seas
Owned by: Royal Caribbean International
doesn't take long for a ship to be superceeded these days! Freedom of
the Seas is huge! Her impressive stats speak for themselves. She weighs
in at 160,000 tonnes and is 237ft high (more than half the height of the
London Eye!) She is 184ft wide and longer than 37 double decker buses
put end to end (1,112ft!)
Freedom was built in just 3 years and
is able to carry over 4000 passengers and 1300 crew, truly a remarkable
vessel and on the puts Royal Carribean firmly in the spotlight. She
carries the world's highest climbing wall which sits behind the funnel
and even has the world's first flowrider which actually lets passengers
surf whilst remaining onboard! - quite astounding indeed! The Royal
Promenade which lies in the middle of the ship is a 368ft long shopping,
dining and entertainment boulevard provides guests with myriad
experiences and pretty much all they could need on a cruise.
other interesting technical facts are the hull contains 350,000 pieces
of steel, she houses 2,200 miles of electrical cable, has 62,430 square
feet of window space and is lit with 750,00 light bulbs!
