has announced that the newest liner in its fleet, Liberty of the Seas
, is one step closer to completion.
The company has said that the ship has been "floated out", meaning it has been moved from dry dock to wet dock where the remainder of the work will be completed.Liberty of the Seas
, which will join stable-mate Freedom of the Seas
as one of the two largest cruise liners in the world, will make its debut in May 2007.
"We created Freedom based on guests' wishes and demands and there are so many things to do, see and experience, that it allows cruisers to escape and have the freedom of choice," said Harri Kulovaara, executive vice president of maritime at Royal Caribbean.
"It's a terrific time for our brand and we look forward to introducing Liberty of the Seas
, to returning guests and first-time cruisers."
Capable of carrying in excess of 3,600 passengers, the Liberty of the Seas will be decked out in much the same way as Freedom, featuring the FlowRider surf simulator, the H20 Zone aqua park, cantilevered whirlpools, an ice-skating rink and a boxing ring.
