Royal Caribbean – Liberty of the Seas Photography
I spent some time while on a 7-night Royal Caribbean cruise taking photos of their ship, The Liberty of the Seas. A good portion of a cruise is spent on the ship.
The Liberty is just over 1,100′ long and displaces 160,000 gross tons. It cruises along at 21.6 knots (that’s almost 25mph) and has been in service with the cruise line since 2007. I took hundreds of photos of the ship’s interior and exterior during the trip. Below are a few of the highlights I was able to capture.
Liberty of the Seas: Stock Photography vs Custom Photos
When it comes to the travel industry, custom photography is a must. Stock photography for specialized destinations and locations like a cruise ship just won’t work. Consider that hotels, resorts, theme parks, cruise lines and other travel businesses often dedicate tens of thousands of dollars per photo shoot, the investment in photography is often substantial. Hiring a photographer for your travel and destination photography is a necessity. However, when you consider the investment made for a project like this, the return can be realized for months or even years into the future.
In addition to a cost savings, the images produced from a custom photo shoot can be used for months or longer on your website, social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram or Pinterest and provide a high degree of relevance to your potential customer.
