Reported in biz.yahoo.com: "April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Caribbean today announced the name of the cruise line's second Freedom class ship. The Liberty of the Seas reflects the same freedom of choice and experiences as does her similarly- titled sister ship, Freedom of the Seas, which enters service in June. With Liberty's debut in May 2007 as well as exciting new itineraries, new departure cities and exotic ports of call on the horizon, Royal Caribbean is setting a bold precedent for the 2007-2008 season.

Currently under construction at Aker Finnyards in Turku, Liberty of the Seas will closely mirror her prototype with signature class amenities such as the FlowRider® surfing simulator and cantilevered whirlpools suspended over 200 feet above the ocean but will also continue the cruise line's legacy of providing the unexpected with her own unique features.

The 3,600-guest Liberty of the Seas will sail alternating 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries year-round from Miami, calling on San Juan, Puerto Rico; Philipsburg, St. Maarten and Labadee, Haiti in the east and in Labadee; Montego Bay, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico in the west. Liberty will depart Miami on Saturdays while Freedom of the Seas also sailing alternating 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries out of Miami, will depart Sundays."
