I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the Liberty of the Seas.

I did not know this ship exisisted.

So, it is the sister ship of the Freedom of the Seas?

Did it already have it's maiden voyage?

Hi Frase!

Yes, Liberty of the Seas excists, and she will start her sailings in May 2007.
She is build just like Freedom of the Seas, so I guess she is pretty identical.

Best Regards,

Hello Frase,

There will be 3 Freedom class ships. The Independance will be the third in 2008. In 2009 there will be a new and bigger breed. The Genesis Of The Seas. If bigger is better, the Genesis will be the best of the best. We're talking 220,000 tons. The Freedom is 160,000 tons.

I cannot imagine what neat attractions they will come out with for the Genesis! And I am still saving up for the Freedom!

Can't wait to see what the Genesis of the Seas will look like!
What about a beach onboard for one of the pools?
Nothing will surprise me with RCCLs next ships

On the inaugural voyage of the Freedom, the Captain (who is actually a senior VP with RCCL) told us that in the executive offices they referred to the Genesis project as "game over".

Really? Well, I bet they have plans for other and more cruise ships anyway

My interpretation of his comment was "nobody can beat this". I'd really be surprised to see cruise ships get any bigger than Genesis. At some point size becomes a logistics problem. I liked Freedom just fine, but it is really just a stretched Voyager-class. Genesis will have A LOT of people aboard - over 1000 more than a maxed out Freedom loading. It will be interesting to see how managing that many people goes. Just one Genesis ship arriving in a port will be almost equal to having three "regular sized" ships arriving! Embarkation and debarkation will also offer some new challenges. But I'll be there on it when it goes into service - perhaps on the inaugural sailing or at least soon thereafter.

Hopefully by the time a Genesis ship is launched, there will be all kinds of "trekkie" discounts and promotions! Would be neat if the major lines gave little incentives to members of this site. I've always thought parasailing from a cruise ship would be neat..perhaps that could be in store for us on a genesis ship?

Yes, true - The question is if the ports will have enought space and capacity for those ships.
In the port near me, even the Voyager-class ships don't get in, because of bridges and such.
Only the Jewel of the Seas has done its visit, as far as I know..

Thats why I miss even more RCCL cruises from Norway and the rest of Northern Europe, but also from New York - a port which is not really "in use" by Royal Caribbean.
