More Information
Not only will you find Freedom of the Seas impressive, but her itinerary as well.  Sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, the Freedom of the Seas calls on such desirable ports of call as St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Antigua, St. Lucia, and Barbados.  You'll experience epic sunsets, some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and world-class shopping.
Ports of Call
Any visit to Puerto Rico begins in Old San Juan.  Its cobblestoned streets feature colorful Spanish colonial buildings and 16th-century landmarks.  You can climb the ramparts of imposing fortresses like El Morro, at the entrance to the bay, and visit the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, one of the oldest churches in the Americas and the final resting place of the city’s founder, Ponce de León.

Add in palm trees, fragrant food cooking at wonderful restaurants, and sweeping views of the Atlantic, and you’ll fall in love with San Juan.
The smallest island in the world that is shared by two nations - the Dutch on the southern side (St. Maarten) and French to the north (Sint Martin), this beautiful island is blessed with beautiful, white-sand beaches, tranquil lagoons, colorful coral reefs, and duty-free shopping that will satisfy even the hard-core shopper. 

The best shopping is located along Front Street in Philipsburg, the capital of Dutch St. Maarten.
Nothing soothes the soul like a walk on the beach in St. Kitts. With it’s intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters and white sandy beaches, St. Kitts exudes a peaceful calm that will take your breath away. Originally named St. Christopher, after Christopher Columbus discovered it in 1493, the island was given the nickname St. Kitts which it holds today.

Be sure to take an excursion to Nevis for the hot springs, naturally heated by the active volcano at the center of the island.

Antigua is known for it’s many beaches.  There are 365 of them…one for each day of the year.  The majority of them rest inside the calm protected waters of the island’s Caribbean side.  All beaches are open to the public and you can spend an entire day trying to find them all.

While in Antigua, be sure to visit Stingray city, where you can partake in the unique experience of interacting and feeding these friendly and gentle creatures. 
St. Lucia’s landscape is dominated by the majestic twin Pitons.  Created from hardened lava, and rising almost 3,000 feet in the air, they seem to rise straight from the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.  These stunning peaks were made a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004.

Looking for a little adventure?  Take a tour to Sulphur Springs, the world's only drive-in volcano. Enjoy a short tour of the crater and see the bubbling pools letting off puffs of odorous steam.

Every great story begins with a time and a place.  For Mount Gay Rum Company, the time was 1703 and the place was the Caribbean island of Barbados.  Mount Gay Rum, the oldest and most storied Rum in the world, has been produced in Barbados with passion and unparalleled craftsmanship since then, earning it the title of the “Rum that invented Rum”.  Expertly crafted from the rich sugar cane and pristine coral-filtered waters native to the island, Mount Gay Rum is a spirit with a rich history and true character.

Take a tour  and learn the art of distilling this sweet spirit; tour the aging facility; and talk with expert rum makers. Finally, savor different varieties of the island’s prized spirit to appreciate three centuries of Mount Gay excellence.
