The Liberty of the Seas of a wonderful ship with plenty of activities for all age groups. We took this same cruise lat year and the food in the main dining room seems to have improved. The ship is very clean and the Ice Show is a must see. The children's play area on the upper pool deck would be great for small children. They even have lifeguards on duty now.

Our favorite part of the cruise was the experience we had onboard. Our stateroom attendant Roy was awesome. He helped us with whatever we wanted or needed and visited with us daily. The balcony was beautiful to eat breakfast on and sit out and unwind each night. The shore excursions were well laid out and made some wonderful memories. We would have liked to know you can prepay the daily gratuitiy charges. Overall it was the perfect trip.

This was a wonderful family cruise with options for the children to see and interact with their favorite DreamWorks characters.  We traveled with two special needs children and the crew and staff were very accommodating - we didn't want for anything.  RCI even made special arrangements for boarding and disembarking to reduce the stress on the children.  Our cabin was large, the ship was clean, all the people were wonderful.  The purser's office could use some training on customer relations (they were a bit short/abrupt); and the food was more cafeteria quality (even in the dining rooms).  But overall this was a wondeful family experience!

This was our first cruise so we have nothing to compare it to, but the ship was great and sos was the food.  Our meal servers (we had the same ones every night) and the person who took care of our room were the best that I could ever of hoped for.  I couldn't have been happier.

     I had read so many negative reviews about Galveston, embarkation, cleanliness, food, hard selling etc....that I was a bit tentative. Still, I know that human nature is to complain first, then praise. A cruise, vacation, life is what you make of it. This was number 25 for me and number 8 for my daughter.

     We stayed at the Holiday Inn on the Beach the night prior and post. Good location, very good complimentary shuttle service to and from the port. We arrived at the ship around 11:30 am. My Elite status with Celebrity gave me Diamond status on Royal. A little confusion with porters and luggage drop off, but then we quickly moved through the process and were onboard by noon.

    Our guarantee inside cabin turned out to be a Promenade Family Inside as large as a small suite. Totally grateful for our good fortune.

     We tried Chops, Main Dining, Windjammer and Room Service for dinner. All with their merits. Windjammer was shockingly good in the evening. We had lunch and breakfast mostly in Windjammer, then once in the Main Dining Room. Food is subjective. Nothing exceptional, nothing bad.

    We took advantage of the Diamond Lounge for evening cocktails.

     The shows we attended were good.

     In port, we struck out on our own. Beach days each day.

     All in all, we had a great time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Liberty.

 

Bon Voyage

Great cruise...but...

The ship, crew and staff were great - room steward Ferdi was fun...but, the bed in stateroom 6650 definitely needed replacing!

Never ate in the main dining room, but all other food locations were fine, wanted to try the Chop House specialty dining, but did not due to very poor references from fellow passengers.

Loved the cruise with Royal Caribbean, but had bad experience with . They promised me a Specialty Dinner for two, but I didn't get it. I will certainly cruise with Royal Caribbean again but won't book through . They don't honor their promises - better to book direct with cruise line.

Birthday Celebration Cruise

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Favorite part of the cruise was the entertainment (Voytek-classical guitarist, ice show, pair of comedians).

 

Improvements: Toiletries should mirror what any hotel provides for a week's stay.  Swimming pools should have regular steps or beach walk ins for older travelers-babies and small children in family pools without swim diapers!-need better controls.

Our first cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first experience on a cruise. We had some high expectations with going on a cruise, from hearing friends and families trips on a cruise ship. Some of these expectations were met and others were not. The ship was very nice. Kept clean very well. Some maintenance needed to be kept up better but a very nice ship all in all. This cruise seemed to be about shopping mostly as they were constantly trying to sell you things on board the ship and telling you where to shop in ports. Did not realize that alot of the extra things were not included in the price we paid to sail on the ship. I.E. lobster, good cut stake, a good hamburger. We did enjoy the main dinning room. Our wait staff was fantastic Toni and Gerald. Great hosts fun and friendly. Service was wonderful. Every one said the food is great on cruises, I wasn't too impressed. I'm not sure how they prepare the food but it tasted not all but most, premade. We only ate at the buffet 3 times twice for breakfast once for lunch the breakfast was ok the lunch was....... well we didn't eat for lunch twice so. But the staff working the buffet were great. Or stateroom attendant was perfect. Great guy we enjoyed talking with him every day. I wish that there was a sail day between the ports it was one right after another and we were exhausted from the last one each time. Cozumel Mexico was a ok port could of been cleaner we went to the recommended shop Diamonds International to purchase a expensive watch. The first lady we met in the store kind of snub us and spoke poorly about us in a joking manner to her Co worker thinking we could not understand her. We worked with a gentle men at that store and bought the watch my husband wanted. ( the grear deals they talk about on the ship at the ports are not so great to say.) The watch we bought we could of bought at home for the same price. But it was an experience we know better now. When they tell you every thing is tax and duty free not true on every thing no matter how many letters of alcohol is bought you have to pay taxes when u get back to the US. Grand Cayman was great friendly people beautiful beaches. Jamaica was our favorite stop. We did what they tell you not to do, we went out from the port at Falmouth and met and hung out with some locals. Hands down the nicest people we have ever met. They were great so kind so much love. We walked around there neighborhood learned some history laughed and enjoyed our time there. The beach was nice also. I wish they wouldn't make it seem like jamaica is a dangerous place like it's in safe to leave their shopping port in Falmouth unless u go on an excursion with the royal Caribbean. It's not like that at all I would like to fly to Jamaica just to hang out with the sams people. When at sea we saw the FREE shows they were good. The two brothers comedy act was great. The solo comedian I didn't like he was too... insulting to be funny. We went to all 3 art auctions and enjoyed them. They were fun and we loved looking at the art work and learning about the art and artist. We rode all 3 slides they were ok. We watched the ride the wave it was entertaining. The pools were ALWAYS crowded. We had a great first time cruising. We might do it agian.

We loved our time in Galveston before the cruise. Great little town full of history. Thoroughly loved the staff on the cruise. Edison and Joe, our waiter and asst. waiter, always went out of their way to see that we were taken care of. They gave the best recommendations, and made sure we ate well, and ate plenty! They were like family by the end of the cruise. Our housekeeper, Obie, was also awesome. Always available with a smile, and kept our room looking fresh and inviting! Our excursion, the Best of Roatan, was the biggest disappointment of the trip. Please avoid this option. Belize and Altun Ha was AMAZING. Our tour A Tale of Two Cities, and our guide, Pedro(who could be a twin of Eric Estrada or Wayne Newton), made the history and culture of Belize come to life! This country is a gem in the middle of Central America. We didn't travel away from the port of Cozumel, and therefore, just experienced a lot of shopping. What no one told us about the inside stateroom was how great we would sleep because it was so dark!  The bed and pillows were fantastic!

You should plan ahead where to go before arriving on every port. Some are easily accessible through local trains & that will save you money.

The ice show is great and very popular. It should be booked in advance so as to get a seat.
