Carnival to Visit Greece, Turkey for First Time with Freedom
Carnival Cruise Lines, which made its first foray into the Mediterranean with Carnival Liberty in 2005, is increasing its European presence. The line has announced that its 110,000-ton, 2,974-passenger Carnival Freedom, set to kick off its inaugural sailing season on March 14, 2007, will sail 12-day cruises that include the line's first-ever visits to the Greek Isles and Turkey.

A series of seven 12-day Mediterranean & Greek Isles cruises include eight ports: Naples, Rhodes, Izmir (Ephesus), Istanbul, Athens (Piraeus), Katakolon and Livorno, as well as an overnight call in Rome (Civitavecchia). A dozen 12-day Grand Mediterranean cruises visit seven ports: Naples, Dubrovnik, Venice (two-day call), Messina, Barcelona, Cannes and Livorno.

Carnival Freedom's Mediterranean itineraries will operate through fall of 2007. The ship, the fifth in Carnival's Conquest class of ships, is being built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Sestri, Italy.
