Royal Caribbean Plans Third Freedom-Class Ship
Royal Caribbean, whose upcoming Freedom of the Seas will be the newest contender in cruising's vaunted biggest-ship-ever sweepstakes, announces this week it has now committed to building another.

The company, which has already said it would construct a pair of Freedom twins, plans for this third version -- which will have similar features and be built at the same Finnish shipyard -- to debut in spring 2008. That means that, beginning with next spring (2006), Royal Caribbean will be unveiling a new, 158,000-ton, 3,600-passenger ship for each of the next three years.

Freedom of the Seas, the first of the three, will launch in April 2006. Cabins have already been offered for sale to the line's past passengers (and sales will open to the general public soon).
