Five sailings in 2021 on Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas have been canceled to allow extra time for the ship’s dry dock next year. The cancellations begin with its February 14, 2021 sailing and include February 21, February 28, March 7, and March 14, 2021.

The extra time is needed to upgrade and enhance the ship as part of Royal Caribbean’s more than $1 billion Royal Amplified fleet modernization plan.

Options for clients impacted by these cancellations include rebooking on other Liberty of the Seas sailings later in 2021 or on Jewel of the Seas during the same period. Clients can also rebook on a different Royal Caribbean International sailing or cancel the cruise.

Starting in the summer on 2021, Liberty of the Seas sails roundtrip from Galveston, TX  setting course for the Western Caribbean on seven-night sailings before transitioning to Miami for the winter to offer three- and four-night Bahamas and Perfect Day at CocoCay itineraries.
