We’ll get you home

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Fort Lauderdale . Choose to arrive Friday morning and head straight to the Freedom of the Seas or come a day early to enjoy the beautiful beaches this incredible city has to oﬀer. Sailing out of Fort Lauderdale is the perfect beginning to your cruise.
Our first stop on Saturday is Royal Caribbean’s very own private island, CocoCay. Discover the many ways to relax or go on a unique adventure. One of the private island’s most popular options takes you down the coast aboard a waverunner. Fly past Great Stirrup Cay Lighthouse, Slaughter Harbor and Starﬁsh Alley. It’s a thrilling ride in the Bahamas that’s worth taking. And now open is Perfect Day at CocoCay — This isn’t vacation days spent. This is bragging rights earned. With one-of-a-kind ways to thrill and chill, all in the same day. Like conquering the tallest waterslide in North America, and snapping a shot from 450 feet up in a helium balloon. A drink at the swim-up bar in the Bahamas’ largest freshwater pool. Or a taste of Bora Bora in the only private overwater cabanas in the Bahamas. This is Perfect Day at CocoCay.
Our second stop on Sunday is the beautiful port of Nassau. Visit the luxurious Bahamian resort, Atlantis in Paradise Island. Interact with amazing dolphins at Atlantis Dolphin Cay, one of the largest dolphin habitats in the world. Register for the Aquaventure program, the premier water park in the Caribbean, and participate on a Discover Atlantis Tour. View more than 50,000 fascinating species of marine life in the largest open-air aquarium in the world. Visit Predator Lagoon where you’ll see sharks, barracuda and many other creatures from the deep.
Weekends were made for wandering, and Liberty of the Seas® is your gateway to reef-roaming tropics-trekking adventures. Discover our award-winning private island in The Bahamas, Perfect Day at CocoCay. Dial up downtime with figure eights on the ice rink and boogie down to the hit Broadway musical Saturday Night Fever. Getting there is all the fun!
Brace yourself for high-flying fun on Tidal Wave℠, the first boomerang style slide at sea. And challenge a fellow daredevil to a rip-roaring race along The Perfect Storm℠ high-speed water slides. It’s time to test your threshold for thrills, because this cruise ship is all about upping the ‘H-2 Whoa’ factor.
In between exploring exotic tropical shores, taste your way around the world with dining that transports you beyond the Caribbean. At Sabor Modern Mexican, you can indulge in a fiesta of fresh flavor, while Sorrento’s Pizza serves up a taste of New York by the slice. And at Chops Grille℠, savor sizzling prime meats and American steakhouse classics in a sophisticated setting.
Just because the day’s over doesn’t mean the adventure is. Grab an expertly crafted martini with a side of mid-century modern vibes at R Bar or uncork a good time with wine from around the world at Vintages. And don’t miss out on the scene-stealing performances that await onstage and in the rink — like dazzling ice skating shows and disco beats during Saturday Night Fever, the musical.
