In 1986 the ship was bought by the Church of Scientology, to be used as a peaceful retreat and for members undertaking advanced training courses. It is operated under cover of a company called Majestic Cruise Lines.

The ship is the fifth owned by the Church of Scientology, whose founder, L Ron Hubbard, spent some time at sea in the 1960s. The previous four have all been scrapped, and Freewinds came within a whisker of meeting the same fate in 2008 when lethal blue asbestos was found on board.
