Review of Liberty Of The Seas

Launched in 2007, Liberty of the Seas is the second Freedom-class Royal Caribbean ship, together with Freedom and Independence.

History - construction and ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is an US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCCL's largest fleet as both number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All Royal Caribbean liners have names ending with "of the Seas".

Liberty Of The Seas cruise ship (Royal Caribbean)

The 154,407-ton, 4,370-passenger Liberty of the Seas went under the knife in early 2011 for her first dry dock. During the multimillion dollar refit, the ship gained new features that first emerged on Oasis of the Seas, including a big-name stage show, a nursery for the youngest cruisers, an outdoor movie screen and cupcake bakery. New technology knowhow was placed in the form of interactive TVs and digital deck plan systems, located throughout the Liberty to help guests navigate by using LCD touch-screens for customized directions, ship factoids and real time updates. Liberty of the Seas also boasts all the Freedom-class favorites, including popular onshore brands like Johnny Rockets and Ben and Jerry's, cruising's only ice rink, a rock-climbing wall, the novel "Promenade" concept and Boleros Latin lounge.

In the beginning of 2016 Royal Caribbean's cruise ship Liberty of the Seas has undergone an extensive dry dock revitalization. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the new features to be constructed, such as the Splashaway Bay waterpark, The Perfect Storm water slides and new dining options at Giovanni's Italian, Sabor Mexican restaurant, and more.

Cruise itinerary program

Liberty of the Seas itinerary program is based on 7-day Western Caribbean cruises from Galveston, Texas. During summer, Liberty sails to Canada and Bermuda from Bayonne, New Jersey. Feature port destinations include Belize, Jamaica, Roatan, Grand Cayman and Cozumel Mexico.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

The 3-deck-high dining room on Liberty of the Seas accommodates nearly 4,000 guests per night. Passengers choose between assigned dining and Royal Caribbean's My Time Dining program, in which guests pick a preferred mealtime between 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. but can change reservations on a daily basis. Those who opt for My Time Dining have to prepay gratuities. Each floor of the MDR is named after a Renaissance master - Rembrandt, Michelangelo and Botticelli - and a huge crystal chandelier towers over the restaurant.

Liberty Of The Seas wiki

  • Royal Caribbean's Liberty is the line's 2nd Freedom-class vessel. Her sisters in the fleet are Freedom and Independence.
  • Liberty was built in 2007 at the Aker Finnyards shipyard in Turku, Finland. This shipyard was later acquired by STX Europe, a subsidiary of the South Korean based multinational STX. Godmother of the vessel is Donnalea Madeley. She was elected from about 2500 female travel agents, who had shown fondness of social causes. Donnalea Madeley is from Ontario, and she's the first travel agent to win such a position, usually given to VIPs. The ceremony took place at the Port of Miami on the 18th of May, 2007.
  • Liberty's maiden voyage was a 7-day Caribbean cruise starting on the 19th of May, and she was accompanied by her sister Freedom. Liberty, however, had some very special pre-inaugural cruises before she arrived in Miami. The first was Transatlantic crossing from Southampton to New York City, the second from NYC to Florida (Miami) with visits to several US East Coast ports.
  • Like all new and newly refurbished Royal Caribbean ships, Liberty offers the DreamWorks Experience. This type of feature entertainment was implemented on this ship in January 2011. Liberty's passengers can enjoy 3D DreamWorks Studios movies, can meet their characters or even to have meal with them. Also, available for the ship's guests is a DreamWorks TV channel in their rooms.
  • Liberty is an "Art Nouveau'" decorated modern cruise liner. Passengers will be amazed by the mixing colored light projections on broken or hanging canvasses created by the unique digital art celebrity Miguel Chevalier. All the rest is totally Royal Caribbean - the feature entertainment options with great shows, grand Vegas-style productions, the "ice-skating and rock-climbing", numerous themed bars and lounges, modern facilities to spend a top quality time on board.
