Freedom Cruise Line International has proposed a new ship which will carry 60,000 passengers and will be nearly one mile long. Freedom Cruise Line International is proposing the largest vessel in maritime history. It will be 4,500 feet long, as wide as 2 1/2 football fields, and 350 feet high. The ship will be the first mobile City at Sea and carry the name Freedom Ship. The cost to build Freedom Ship will be around $11 Billion.
The 20+ story superstructure would contain condominium housing for 60,000, a hospital, schools, hotel, casino, duty free shopping, and commercial and office occupancies. The commercial district aboard Freedom Ship will sustain a population of 100,000 people comprised of 40,000 residents, 20,000 full time crew, 30,000 daily visitors, and 10,000 overnight guests to the hotel and casino.
Freedom cruise would circumnavigate the globe every two years constantly visiting different countries and ports. The top of the ship will have a landing strip for aircraft that will be able to support turboprop aircraft in the 38 to 40-passenger range. While the idea for the project was unveiled several years ago, the company hopes to commence primary construction type operations within the year.
However, don’t get your hopes up for this monster cruise ship. The odds that will actually be built are extremely low. Put it this way, you probably have a better chance of winning the lottery.
