Freedom of the Seas Cruise Ship Overview:
The Freedom of the Seas is an Ultra-Voyager because she is an extension of the Royal Caribbean International (RCI) Voyager of the Seas class. The Freedom of the Seas is larger than the Voyager and carries 500 more passengers. The ship's extra length and size has enabled RCI to include lots of exciting options never seen on a cruise ship before such as a surfing pool.
