CRUISE COMPASS  Each day passengers on
FREEDOM OF THE SEAS receive a copy of Cruise
Compass listing the day's events and providing other
information.  Attached is a copy of one issue.  It is presented
for historical purposes as Beyondships has no control over
Royal Caribbean and cannot say whether it is representative of
what Royal Caribbean will do in the future.
