Liberty of the Seas to Feature New Waterslides after Dry Dock

Liberty of the Seas will feature new thrilling water slides after a major dry dock in February 2016. Passengers sailing from Texas will be among the first to enjoy the ship’s new enhancements.

Passengers are in for a real treat once Liberty of the Seas has completed her refurbishment in February 2016. The 3,634 passenger ship will get a ton of upgrades during a month long dry dock. Some of the biggest highlights of the upgrade are new waterslides that will keep adults and kids thrilled all day long. Liberty of the Seas will become one of the most innovative ships sailing from Galveston, Texas once complete.

The new slides are all part of “The Perfect Storm” that will each offer a different kind of thrill. The same concept will also be introduced on Harmony of the Seas once it enters service next year. So what new water slides will the ship get?

Tidal Wave

Tidal Wave will be the ocean’s first ever boomerang styled slide. The new hair-raising slide features a steep drop that propels riders up a near vertical wall for a moment of weightlessness and into free fall.

Cyclone and Typhoon

These slides which are part of the “Perfect Storm”will be located at the aft of the ship alongside the Flowrider surf simulator that was initially introduced on the Freedom class of ships.

Splashaway Bay

Splashaway Bay is an aqua park featuring an interactive kid’s play area with water cannons, geysers and much more.

There will also be plenty of great dining options available for guests including Giovanni’s Table, an Italian style restaurant and Sabor, a modern Mexican cuisine restaurant. There will be 26 new Panoramic Ocean View staterooms as well as an additional 53 staterooms throughout the ship.

Liberty of the Seas will sail seven-night Western Caribbean itineraries departing every Sunday from Galveston starting from November 2015. The port of calls include: Belize City, Belize; Cozumel, Mexico; Falmouth, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Puerto Costa Maya, Mexico; and Roatan, Honduras.
