Probably going to send it to turkey for scrap moran

Definitely not. The only thing wrong with it is the funnel wing burned off.

Is there anything new about fire and the “Freedom” ?

After the fire: Only thing damaged was the ring wing of the funnel. Mardi Gras departure from Grand Turk delayed to assist Freedom. Freedom will stay in Grand Turk until Saturday. Guests can stay on the ship and go on the island. Carnival Conquest will come at 4:00pm on Saturday to pick up Freedom's guests and take them back to Port Canaveral, arriving Monday. Freedom's May 28 cruise is cancelled, and Conquest's May 27 cruise cancelled, Conquest's May 30 shortened one day to now depart on May 31 because it needs to get back to Miami.

Hope that makes sense

This fire was the result of a poor design and deferred maintenance.

 Carnivals whale tail funnel design is a sure way to cause a Fire in the buildup of stack gas soot.

 Hot gas wants to rise Straight Up and making do a sharp turn only contributes to slowing the speed of the gas and that leads to a separation of soot from the gas and an accumulation of soot in the funnel.

 If you have a good Chimney Sweep program this kind of fire is preventable.

 I was on another Carnival ship that had an engine room fire and that was the Last Carnival Cruise ship I will ever be on.

Like most things in Life you get what you pay for. Often Less (Carnival) seldom More.

Are there any updates? Will the Freedom Sail June 25? If not when will we be informed?

From Carnival's statement, the ship’s May 28, June 2 and June 6 departures were cancelled so repairs could be made.  No word if the June 25th sailing will be cancelled as well.  They usually send out an email for any cancellation, so watch out for that.  Here is Carnival's statement : https://carnival-news.com/2022/05/27/statement-on-carnival-freedom/

Does anyone have insight on to how long a funnel takes to repair?

I think Carnival is moving along very quickly to repair the funnel.  They have canceled the the June 6th sailing and not the sailings after that, so probably 2 weeks repair.  We might get more updates for Carnival Freedom as the date draws near.

Hmmn, not so much, the latest official word from Carnival is this from their website: https://carnival-news.com/2022/05/27/statement-on-carnival-freedom/  They have canceled their May 28, June 2 and June 6 departures.  Are you cruising onboard Carnival Freedom?
