Freedom of the Seas® launched in May 2006 as the world's biggest cruise ship, measuring 155,000 tons, carrying 4,500 passengers and introducing Royal Caribbean's now-widespread FlowRider surf simulator to the cruise industry.

It is the ultimate adventure seeking, discover peaking expedition. This fan favorite cruise ship sails way beyond the typical getaway. It’s the perfect mix of destinations no matter where you want to go, plus all the best thrills at sea.

Although the ship is no longer the biggest in Royal Caribbean's fleet – that title is held by the line's newer Oasis-class ships -- it does not feel outdated. If anything, Royal Caribbean is doing a great job of keeping Freedom of the Seas in tip-top shape.

During a 2015 dry dock, Freedom received new cabins, a new nightclub and two new for-fee restaurants – giving passengers a plethora of dining choices that range from Italian to Mexican.

Hang ten on the FlowRider® surf simulator. Race to the top of the Rock Climbing Wall. Take in ice thrills and bold skills in Studio B. Or catch a first-run flick at the 3D theater. Revolutionary favorites make the journey just as adventurous as the destination onboard Freedom of the Seas®.
