Bomb Threat against Liberty of the Seas

A caller to Royal Caribbean's Wichita reservations office reported a bomb aboard Liberty of the Seas about 5pm on Saturday.

Crews aboard the ship searched the ship's interior but found nothing. The ship proceeded on its schedule to Miami where it arrived at 6am on Sunday morning. Coast Guard vessels escorted the ship to its berth at the Port of Miami where FBI, Immigration & Customs Enforcement and Customs & Border Protection agents again searched the ship and investigated.

They cleared the ship to resume normal operation Sunday afternoon.

Further details will be in Monday's edition of Cruise News Daily.
