Default Freedom of The Seas In Hamburg Germany

Saw this article at BBC News Europe this morning:


Giant cruise ship thrills Hamburg


The ship had very little space to manoeuvre in Hamburg

The world's biggest cruise ship, the "Freedom of the Seas", has drawn
a crowd of thousands in Hamburg ahead of its maiden transatlantic
voyage.

The Finnish-built vessel - flagship of Royal Caribbean International - will
have a thorough check and final polish at Germany's Blohm and Voss
shipyard.

It boasts the world's first on-board surfing pool, called "Flow Rider",
a skating rink and a rock-climbing wall.

It will take up to 4,375 passengers at a time on Caribbean cruises.

The 160,000-ton ship is 339 metres (1,112 ft) long, 56m (184 ft) wide
and has a cruising speed of 21.6 knots.

The crew had to carry out a tricky manoeuvre in Hamburg, as the
ship's berth was only three metres wider and 12m longer than the ship.

The ocean liner Queen Mary II is six metres longer but 15m narrower
than the Freedom of the Seas, which will be based in Miami, Florida.

The Freedom of the Seas will leave Hamburg on 25 April for a stopover
in Oslo before crossing the Atlantic and starting Caribbean cruises in June.

Its features also include a water park with colourful sculptures
and numerous restaurants, bars and salons. (End of article)

She's a beauty! Isn't she?
