CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES’ NEW 110,000-TON SUPERLINER TO BE NAMED CARNIVAL
FREEDOM

New 2,974-Passenger ‘Fun Ship’ Scheduled To Enter Service in Spring
2007

MIAMI (November 16, 2004) – Carnival Freedom is the name selected by
Carnival Cruise Lines for its new 110,000-ton cruise ship scheduled to
enter service in spring 2007.

To be built at a cost of $500 million at the Fincantieri shipyard in
Sestri, Italy, the new 2,974-passenger “Fun Ship” will be the fifth in
Carnival’s highly successful Conquest-class, which also includes
Carnival Conquest and Carnival Glory, currently in service, and
Carnival Valor and Carnival Liberty, set to debut Dec. 15, 2004, and
July 20, 2005, respectively. The itinerary for the Carnival Freedom
will be announced at a later date.

The new Carnival Freedom will encompass 13 passenger decks housing 22
lounges and bars, a 13,300-square-foot health club, a
2,400-square-foot children’s play room, a 4,200-square-foot teen
club/game room, four swimming pools, a 214-foot-long water slide, and
four restaurants, including an upscale reservations-only supper club.

Other features will include a nine-deck-high atrium, a full gambling
casino, a duty-free shopping mall, and a comprehensive golf program.
Of the ship’s 1,487 staterooms, 60 percent will offer either an ocean
view or a balcony.

“Among the largest passenger vessels at sea, Carnival Freedom will
embody ‘Today’s Carnival,’ with a huge array of on-board features and
facilities for guests to enjoy. It will certainly be a fantastic
addition to the ‘Fun Ship’ fleet,” said Bob Dickinson, Carnival
president and CEO.

Carnival Cruise Lines, a unit of Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE:
CCL; NYSE: CUK), is the world’s largest and most popular cruise line
with a fleet of 19 “Fun Ships” operating three- to 16-day voyages to
The Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Panama Canal,
Canada, New England and Europe. All Carnival cruises can be booked by
contacting your travel professional.

Hello everybody,

it's amazing how "creative" the cruise lines have been lately when it comes to ship names. Two "freedoms" within a month have to be considered the all-time low in creativity, I guess.

Isnt it a hoot that Carnival selects the name Freedom a week after RCCL select Freedom of the Seas for their ship. I find that awfully odd.
