Default Juicy rumors about Freedom

Just off Navigator yesterday and had several conversations with staff members about Freedom.
Some of the more interesting rumors came from our head waiter, who said the dinning room will have 4 levels and there will be batting cages on the sports deck.
The assistant activities director said there will be a Bungee jump/ride and a lazy river tube float as well as 2 additional pools and hot tubs.
Our head waiter also said the itinerary was going to be the same every week because there will only be so many ports that will accomodate her size. He said the ports would be Labadee, St. Martin and St. Thomas sailing from Miami.
I'm not sure how accurate this information is... but it sure is fun to speculate!

The "rumors" you speak of are most likely true. We were on Adventure and the Captain spoke at length at the Crown and Anchor party, and told us a lot about Freedom. He didn't mention the batting cages (although that too may be true) but did speak of the bungee jumping and more pools. He said the size of the first one would be 175,000 tons, with future ships as large as 275,000 tons. Also that the cabins would be much larger with flat screen TVs. He said the ships would sail out of Miami with an Eastern/Western Caribbean itinerary. Crown and Anchor members now have the opportunity to book this ship prior to reservations being open to the general public. I believe he said it will start sailing in June 2006.

Anyone else care to repeat what the Captain had to say during the Captains Meet? Please don't hold back. Thank you for sharing OP.

WE were told at a recent cruise training class about the bungie jumping and this will not be the first ship to have a batting cage. NMnita
