Royal Caribbean International rolled out new razzle-dazzle features planned for its 158,000-ton, 3,600-passenger Freedom of the Seas, the first in a new Freedom-class series of ships. Launching in May 2006 as the world's largest ship, Freedom of the Seas will offer a top-deck aqua environment, boasting a pool area 43 percent larger than on Voyager-class ships. Guests will enjoy three separate pool areas -- an interactive family water park, cantilevered adult-only whirlpools and a dedicated sports pool. The aft H2O Zone family park will boast large, colorful sculptures doubling as interactive fountains that spray, sprinkle and spurt water in every direction. A circular pool will shoot a current of water into a river around a central island, which guests can float around. A separate, flamingo-shaped fountain will flow into a shallow kids pool. At the back of the park, a rectangular swimming pool will be flanked by wading areas and fed by a waterfall cascading from an overhanging bridge. At night, the water park will turn into a lighted sculpture garden. Forward, an adult-only, jungle-themed Solarium will feature two large hot tubs cantilevered out 12 feet from the ship's sides and suspended 112 feet above the ocean. A separate sports pool will be home to pool volleyball and basketball, floating golf and pole jousting contests, synchronized swimming competitions, and during non-activity hours, lap swimming. From the accommodation side, Freedom of the Seas will offer six different family-focused stateroom categories designed for larger families. A 14-person Presidential Suite, the largest stateroom Royal Caribbean has ever offered, will feature 1,215 square feet of interior space and an 810-square-foot outdoor living area.

RCI showcases Freedom's water park, family-size suites.

NEW YORK -- A water park for kids, whirlpools cantilevered from the edge of the ship and family-sized suites that can sleep up to 14 are some of the features the Freedom of the Seas will introduce to the cruise industry next spring.

The 158,000-ton, 3,600-passenger Freedom of the Seas, which is under construction in Finland, won’t debut until May 2006. But there’s already been plenty of buzz around Royal Caribbean International’s latest build, mainly because it will be the largest cruise ship in the world when completed.

On May 5, the line added to the buzz by renting a giant space in New York to showcase some of the new pool-deck features.

The water park, called H20 Zone, will be filled with colorful statues that spray water. Water cannons, whirlpools and a “lazy river” also will be featured.

A new pair of sports pools will be the setting for volleyball and synchronized swimming contests.

A third pool zone, the Solarium, will have two whirlpools that protrude over the edge of the ship. People will have a view 112 feet down to the water. Another Solarium pool backs up on a glass wall that overlooks the Freedom’s central atrium.

Royal Caribbean also is rolling out family-style cabin configurations that can sleep between six and eight passengers. The largest suite has room for 14 and has a balcony with a wet bar and a dining table that seats 14.

Two more Freedom-class vessels are under construction for delivery in 2007 and 2008.
