There’s a reason why guests have been raving about Liberty of the Seas since the cruise ship first debuted — and it’s only gotten better and bolder since. It’s of the Royal Caribbean fleet’s top cruise ships with water slides, which has long made it a winner among thrill-seekers looking to spend their sea days chasing an unparalleled adrenaline rush. But that’s not all — Liberty of the Seas also boasts some of the best onboard attractions, entertainment and culinary concepts in the cruise industry. 

From encore-worthy Broadway shows and original productions, to rock climbing, karaoke sessions, ice skating and movie nights under the stars, there really is something for everyone onboard this fan-favorite cruise ship. Parents can unwind in the adults-only Solarium while kids have a blast at Adventure Ocean®. Teens can kick back in a lounge all their own or get in the game on the Sports Court. For those craving some wet and wild thrills, there’s The Perfect Storm℠ dueling waterslides and the Tidal WaveSM — the first-ever boomerang-style slide at sea. Even the littlest explorers can get in on the action at Splashaway BaySM, an aqua park that’s loaded with mini slides and interactive water features designed just for kids.

And when it comes to food, Liberty of the Seas offers plenty of ways to satisfy your cravings with delicious cruise dining options. Like an ever-changing selection of complimentary global fare at Windjammer and the Main Dining Room. Fresh and authentic flavors from south of the border at Sabor Modern Mexican. Prime cuts of steak sizzled to perfection at Chops GrilleSM. And cheesy goodness served by the slice all day and late into the night at Sorrento’s Pizza. 

No matter what your ideal vacation entails, one thing is certain — you’ll never run out of onboard activities when you book a Liberty of the Seas sailing. Here are ten of the ship’s top things to do to help you start planning your itinerary. 

1. Conquer The Perfect Storm And Tidal Wave Waterslides

Available on select cruise ships across the Royal Caribbean fleet, The Perfect Storm waterslides are legendary among thrill-seeking cruisers of all ages. Onboard Liberty of the Seas, they take the form of two lightning-quick dueling racer slides called TyphoonSM and CycloneSM. Grab your bravest friend or relative and see who can get to the bottom of this twisting, turning, white-knuckle ride first. The ship is also home to Tidal Wave, the first boomerang-style slide at sea. Daredevils who step up to the edge will experience a heart-stopping plummet before being flung up for a moment of zero-gravity weightlessness. Then it’s straight down again in an exhilarating, ricocheting rebound toward the slide’s opposite end. Admission to The Perfect Storm and Tidal Wave is complimentary for cruise guests, so you can ride as many times as you like. 

2. Go For A Whirl On The Ice-Skating Rink

The vibe is always cool when you visit this game-changing cruise ship’s famed ice-skating rink, a popular hangout spot for kids, teens and adults. When the rink isn’t being used as a stage for the ship’s spellbinding ice-skating shows, it’s the perfect spot to work on your balance and practice your turns, pirouettes or figure-eights. Anyone can lace up and hit the ice to try out their skills. What’s more, admission is totally included in your cruise fare so you can visit as often as you like. 

3. Treat Little Ones To Gallons Of Fun At Splashaway Bay

Liberty of the Seas offers no shortage of onboard activities for kids — and Splashaway Bay is one of the most popular onboard attractions available to small sun-seekers. A fixture on several top-rated Royal Caribbean cruise ships, this fun-filled water park was designed exclusively for tots to tweens, complete with mini water slides, interactive splash features and a massive drench bucket that tips over when little ones least expect it. It’s the perfect spot for young adventure-chasers to get in on some sun-soaked thrills while parents watch on. 

4. Kick Back And Unwind In The Solarium

If you’ve dropped your children off at Adventure Ocean or have managed to score some grown-up time while your older kids explore the ship, there’s no better place to relax and catch some rays than the Solarium. This tranquil adults-only oasis is all about chill vibes. It offers plenty of room to unwind in the shade or the sunshine, along with lagoon-like whirlpools that boast dazzling sea views and a full bar just steps away. Whether you’re looking to mingle with fellow travelers or indulge in some shut-eye as you work on your tan lines, this is the perfect hideaway to drift away as you sail toward your next destination.

5. Scale The Rock Climbing Wall

Here’s a true Royal Caribbean classic — the Rock Climbing Wall. An oldie but a goodie, this guest-favorite onboard attraction towers 40 feet above the cruise ship’s top deck, yielding spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding sights to those brave enough to reach the top. All you have to do is harness up and give your arms and legs a good stretch before taking your adventure vertical. Just like most of the other top things to do onboard Liberty of the Seas, sessions on the Rock Climbing Wall are free to all cruise guests.

6. Raise A Glass To Great Wine Onboard

If you’re a wine lover, you’re on the right ship. Liberty of the Seas is home to a range of incredible restaurants and bars serving world-class wines — plus pop-up tastings guests can take part in as long as they’re 21 or older. One of the best spots onboard to enjoy some delicious vino is Vintages, the cruise line’s premier wine bar serving up sips by iconic and lesser-known producers from around the world. There’s also Giovanni’s℠ Table, known for its authentic Old-World Italian eats and its impressive selection of accompanying reds, whites, roses and proseccos. And those are just two of the many options onboard where wine lovers can say “cin cin” to big flavor in every glass.

7. Unleash Your Inner Karaoke Star At The On Air Club

Mic check — get ready for the hottest karaoke party at sea. Welcome to On Air Club, where anyone can be a headliner for a song or two. Rally your besties or the whole extended family and prepare to unleash your inner rock or pop star the moment you step onto the stage. You’ll find a seemingly endless list of hits to choose from spanning a wide range of genres — everything from boogie-bouncing disco to classic rock ballads to iconic show tunes. And don’t let stage fright hold you back — everyone’s an idol when they’re in the spotlight at this always-lively hangout. 

8. Feast On A Wide Range Of Foodie-Approved Flavors

Royal Caribbean is known for having the best cruise restaurants in the entire industry, and some of the cruise line’s top heavy hitters are part of the roster onboard Liberty of the Seas. No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll find something delicious to satisfy your cravings when you choose to cruise on this iconic ship. Windjammer is a family favorite — it serves up a rotating selection of global dishes in a casual setting during breakfast, lunch and dinner — all complimentary. There’s also Café Promenade, your go-to for quick, casual and complimentary bites on the go served 24/7. For a dialed–up date night or celebration dinner, head to Chops Grille — the cruise line’s long-running, much-lauded steakhouse experience, or snag a coveted spot at the ultra-exclusive Chef’s Table. You’ll find mouthwatering — and free — pizza by the slice at the ever-popular Sorrento’s, open until late every day. And those are just some of the many yummy cruise dining options that await onboard Liberty of the Seas. 

9. Enjoy A Night Out At The Theater

Like its culinary offerings, Royal Caribbean has won countless awards for its incredible onboard shows and entertainment. These run the gamut from Broadway spectaculars — like CATS, Mamma Mia! and Hairspray — to spellbinding original productions dreamt up in house by the cruise line’s talented entertainment team. Onboard Liberty of the Seas, you can enjoy In the Air, an awe-inspiring show that celebrates the history and evolution of flight and aviation, as well as the Broadway spectacular Saturday Night Fever, a jive-talking gem filled with disco moves and hits by the Bee Gees, Tavares, KC and the Sunshine Band and more. All shows onboard Liberty of the Seas are free for cruise guests, so you can line up every night with a different performance.

10. Cozy Up For A Poolside Movie Under The Stars

One of the most fulfilling yet underrated things to do onboard Liberty of the Seas is to settle in for a movie night out on the pool deck. Every night you’ll be treated to a different flick projected onto the big screen located poolside. All you have to do is grab a beach towel or blanket, settle into a lounge chair and lose yourself in a little old-fashioned movie magic. It’s the perfect way to unwind after a day filled with thrilling adventures onshore and onboard. 

These are just ten of the top things to do onboard Liberty of the Seas. Remember that there are plenty more onboard activities, attractions and restaurants waiting for you onboard, plus daily experiences you can read about in your Cruise Planner — like impromptu parades, performances at the English pub, themed parties and more.
