Central Florida is excited about Royal Caribbean upsizing the ship they have homeported at Port Canaveral for 7-day cruises, and they're going to have a "Sail-a-Bration" to welcome the new ship.
The port is sponsoring the "Sail-a-Bration" to see the 154,407-gross ton Freedom of the Seas sail away on its first cruise from Port Canaveral, which is located near Orlando. Free admission will be granted to Jetty Park at the port (the prime viewing spot) to everyone bringing a non-perishable food item for donation to the Brevard Sharing Center.
The event will take place on Monday, May 4, 2009 from 4pm to 6pm. Everyone will be given a free commemorative Sail-a-Bration flag to wave as Freedom passes on its first departure from Port Canaveral.
