You’ve heard your friends talking about the Oasis of the Seas and the Anthem of the Seas, praising their size and their 21st century amenities. But did you know that you don’t necessarily need to book passage on one of those ships in order to have the best experience that Royal Caribbean offers? In fact, it’s quite the opposite. While the Oasis-class ships are plenty cool, the previous generation of ships (Freedom Class) are every bit as modern, fun and cool.
The Liberty of the Seas is one of those ships, and she received her first big upgrade only a few short years ago. Since then, she’s been ferrying passengers all over the world, offering each an unforgettable experience as the ship moves from port of call to port of call. If you ask any of those passengers, they’ll tell you: bigger doesn’t always mean better!
So, what is it that makes Liberty of the Seas one of the best cruise ships on the seas today, and why should you consider booking a trip aboard her? That’s exactly what we’re going to be exploring below as we take a look at 21 stunning photos of the Liberty of the Seas!
