“Royal Caribbean International is striving forward to grow its market
presence in the UK and Ireland. The pace at which we are introducing new
ships demonstrates the growth potential of the cruise market. The launch
celebrations of Liberty of the Seas in Southampton next week are made
even more exciting by the knowledge that the third Freedom-class ship,
Independence of the Seas, will be based from the UK next year.”
