This whole project started just over five years ago. We were negotiating the contract for what would become Freedom of the Seas and we were apart on price. Harri Kulovaara, Adam Goldstein, and I met at the Heathrow Hilton hotel in London to consider our options. As a way of bridging the gap, we came up with a proposal we thought would help the yard meet its financial needs (wishes??) and provide us with something of value.
