I don't know when the exact date of this new ship is, but she's a beauty!

That would be the newest Frredom Class ship from RCI, the "Independence of the Seas". I believe RCI just took delivery of her or will do so shortly.

It almost looked like from the pics that today was the float out?? Ship looks almost done, at least from the outside. From what I've read the ship has yet to be named...[/i]

Nice Pictures! :D

May 2nd is the first sailing on Independence. A 4 niter Europe. Genesis first sailing is fall of 2009. :D

Independence of the Seas. Genesis is still under construction.

Can you tell, I'm a bit excited about these new ships....I would still love to go on Independence :-)

That is definitely independence of the seas. RCCL took delivery a few days ago. "Genesis" is not even close to float out yet. Still a long way from that. Currently in dry dock.

Thanks so much for the pics of the Independance.. we're booked on her for February 2009.... Seeing the pictures makes me even more excited!!! :D :D :D :D

These are some great ports for the summer on the Independence! :D

14 nite cruises with stops at Gibraltar, Barcelona, Malaga, Vigo and Seville, Spain; Nice and Cannes, France; Florence/Pisa and Sardinia, Italy; and Lisbon, Portugal. :D

Independence is the only Freedom Class ship that will have heated pools. :D
