From our friends at <a href=""><b>DR1</b></a>:

"The largest cruise ship in the world, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines' Freedom of the Seas, will be visiting La Romana port this Wednesday, 23 May. The 155,000-ton ship has capacity for 4,500 passengers. La Romana Port is served by Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruises and Aida Cruise ships. More than a quarter of a million cruise ship passengers visited the DR through La Romana port in the 2006/2007 season. The number of passengers is expected to double for the 2007/2008 season that begins in October. Attractions for passengers in the La Romana area include the Altos de Chavon artists' village, the modern Casa de Campo marina, and the town of La Romana itself, with its arts and crafts shops."

I was on this ship on May 15, 2007 on its semi-inaugural sailing out of Bayonne, NJ.
