Goldstein: Liberty’s Royal revitalization ‘historic’
Liberty of the Seas’ January drydock at Grand Bahama Shipyard, where it received Oasis-class features as part of the ‘Royal Advantage’ refurbishment program, is particularly significant, says Royal Caribbean International president and ceo Adam Goldstein.    

‘This is a historic event in the sense that we are going to enhance the offering of a ship that is not even 4 years old and very much still at the forefront of the industry,’ Goldstein writes in his ‘Why Not?’ blog.

‘I simply want to emphasize that this drydock commences a program of revitalization that will keep our fleet pre-eminent in the cruise industry,’ Goldstein adds.

Next up, in March, is a similar body of work on Freedom of the Seas at Grand Bahama Shipyard.

Later in the year, Royal Caribbean will refresh Radiance of the Seas and then Splendour of the Seas, as earlier reported. No further plans have been announced, but Goldstein says the hope is to add the ‘Royal Advantage’ to other ships in the future.
