Liberty of the Seas Review

Cruise Ship Overview

Since her debut in 2007 as the second of three Freedom-class ships, Liberty of the Seas gained even more innovative features in 2012. The DreamWorks Experience includes characters such as Shrek and his pals; there's also a nursery and puppet shows. Digital signage makes navigating the ship simpler. Adults can finish the evening with a selection of reds or whites at the intimate Vintages wine bar.

Although they are no longer the world's largest cruise ships, the Freedom-class vessels live up to Royal Caribbean's reputation for creative thinking that results in features to stir the imagination and provide a resort-like atmosphere at sea. Whether you are hanging 10 in the surf simulator, going a few rounds in the boxing ring, or strolling the Royal Promenade entertainment boulevard, there's almost no reason to go ashore. The layout is more intuitive than you might expect on such a gigantic ship. A mall-like promenade is lined with shops and bistros, an ice-skating rink/theater, numerous lounges, and dining options, but these are not simply enlarged Voyager-class ships. With plenty of room, even the most intimate spaces feel uncrowded. A good fit for extended families, these ships have expansive areas devoted to children and teens and enough adults-only spaces to satisfy everyone.
