Liberty and Freedom are both newer. They carry more passengers than the Explorer, a couple hundred more. They each have a Flow-rider surf simulator and an H2O zone (an aquatic play area for children--which we really love. We are too old for the H2O zone but LOVE that so many younger children hang there leaving more of the deck and pool area by the main swimming pools less congested with little kids). The Promenade area will be slightly longer and in addition to cafe prominade there is a Sorrento's Pizza on the Promenade. Everything is similar to the Voyager class ships, of which Explorer is one, but stretched a bit larger including the theater, dining rooms and windjammer, fitness center, and pool area. And being on a newer ship is just so much fun! We were on the Liberty two springs ago and loved it. The staff (at least at the time) was fantastic. Probably the best we had experienced in all our cruises. Hope this helps!
