Here’s what happens on Scientology’s cruise ship, the Freewinds. It sounds pretty intense.
When you hear the phrase "Scientology cruise ship," it may conjure images of Tom Cruise playing shuffleboard on the deck while church members sunbathe and sip strawberry daiquiris. That's not exactly what happens aboard the Freewinds. The Freewinds, a cruise ship belonging to the Church of Scientology, was quarantined this week in the Caribbean with an apparent case of measles. It was allowed to return to Curacao harbor, its home port, on Saturday morning.
