Default CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES’ NEW 110,000-TON SUPERLINER TO BE NAME

CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES’ NEW 110,000-TON SUPERLINER TO BE NAMED CARNIVAL FREEDOM

New 2,974-Passenger ‘Fun Ship’ Scheduled To Enter Service in Spring 2007

MIAMI (November 16, 2004) – Carnival Freedom is the name selected by Carnival Cruise Lines for its new 110,000-ton cruise ship scheduled to enter service in spring 2007.

To be built at a cost of $500 million at the Fincantieri shipyard in Sestri, Italy, the new 2,974-passenger “Fun Ship” will be the fifth in Carnival’s highly successful Conquest-class, which also includes Carnival Conquest and Carnival Glory, currently in service, and Carnival Valor and Carnival Liberty, set to debut Dec. 15, 2004, and July 20, 2005, respectively. The itinerary for the Carnival Freedom will be announced at a later date.

The new Carnival Freedom will encompass 13 passenger decks housing 22 lounges and bars, a 13,300-square-foot health club, a 4,200-square-foot children’s play room, an 1,800-square-foot teen club/game room, four swimming pools, a 214-foot-long water slide, and four restaurants, including an upscale reservations-only supper club.

Other features will include a nine-deck-high atrium, a full gambling casino, a duty-free shopping mall, and a comprehensive golf program. Of the ship’s 1,487 staterooms, 60 percent will offer either an ocean view or a balcony.

“Among the largest passenger vessels at sea, Carnival Freedom will embody ‘Today’s Carnival,’ with a huge array of on-board features and facilities for guests to enjoy. It will certainly be a fantastic addition to the ‘Fun Ship’ fleet,” said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president and CEO.

Talk about confusing some people!

Carnival's new ship is named Freedom, and Royal Caribbean's new ship is named Freedom of the Seas!
