Too Good To Be True? Free Ben & Jerry's on Freedom of the Seas!

May 2, 2006

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream -- especially free ice cream!

And that's exactly what the occupants of cabin 6305 onboard Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas, the largest ship afloat, will get. That promenade view cabin has been officially nicknamed the "Ben & Jerry's 'Sweet'" (and unofficially the "Moo Suite" by Freedom crew) because of its obstructed view -- the window is blocked by the, ahem, behinds of two cows that stand atop the Ben & Jerry's ice cream parlor directly below.

But here's the good news. The "lucky" folks who find a pair of derrieres pressed up against their window for the duration of their cruise will also receive complimentary scoops from Ben & Jerry's. And not only is the ice cream free, but according to a spokesperson for the line it is also unlimited ... every single day of the guests' voyage.

The offer is being extended to cruisers booked in "Ben & Jerry's 'Sweet'" (inside cabin 6305 in category PR) on every future sailing of the 158,000-ton, 3,634-passenger Freedom of the Seas, which will set out on its first official cruise June 4. We'd venture to guess this is one obstructed-view stateroom Royal Caribbean will have no problem selling out....

Sure sounds like a sweet deal to us.
