Royal's Liberty of the Seas to undergo revamp

Royal's Liberty of the Seas to undergo revamp

Royal Caribbean International’s Liberty of the Seas is set to undergo a major revamp.
The 3,634-passenger ship, which is sailing from Galveston, Texas, will go into dry dock for a month in February next year. During the transformation the ship will be given new water slides and new dining options.
The collection of water slides will include Tidal Wave, the first boomerang style slide at sea which features a steep drop that propels guests up a near-vertical wall where they’ll feel weightless and be sent into free fall.
The ship also features two new racer slides – Cyclone and Typhoon. The slides will be at the back of the ship, close to the Flowrider surf simulator that was initially introduced on the Freedom class ships.
A Splashaway Bay adult-free water park is also being added to the ship during the stint in dry dock.
New dining options on the ship will include Mexican restaurant Sabor and Italian venue Giovanni’s Table. A new cocktail bar, R Bar, is also being added.
A new cabin option will also be introduced on the ship with 26 panoramic ocean view staterooms, featuring floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
Liberty of the Seas will sail on seven-night Western Caribbean itineraries every Sunday from Galveston from November.
