Royal Caribbean has altered Liberty of the Seas planned itinerary due to the forecasted path of Hurricane Joaquin.
Liberty of the Seas will not be able to call on Kings Warf, Bermuda as originally scheduled. Instead, the ship will sail to St. John, Canada in an effort to ensure guests have a safe and comfortable cruise.
Royal Caribbean will be adding three new water slides to Liberty of the Seas, including the first Boomerango at Sea.
Liberty of the Seas will be undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation in January 2016, as she settles into her new homeport of Galveston, Texas in 2016. The Sports Deck will be re-imagined and the three new water slides will be a focal point of it.
Liberty of the Seas will have three slides, a Boomerango and double body racer slides.
The Boomerango will let guests ride in rafts, where they will "plummet down a steep drop, then shoot up a nearly vertical wall, high into the air, for a moment of weightlessness".
The Boomerango appears to be a water slide built by WhiteWater and here is a video of a Boomerango that may be similar to the one coming to Liberty of the Seas.
