Great Vacation

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My husband and I had cruised before, but this was an experience never to forget.  We left completely relaxed, entertained and happy.  After having different vacations around the world, I felt that this one was perfect because of the inclusions that we didn't have to worry about.  Less planning and fretting, more fun!

Very Good Experience

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The workout center and the food was great. Most of the staff went out of their way to serve and ensure my experience was great. A few staff showed signs of being tired of so many people which is understandable but something to be mindful of. I would definitely recommend the cruise to others and have already done so.

Balcony or Bust

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The balcony and complimentary and very well organized kids camp was worth the trip alone. First, research the class of ships and the specific ship to see if it meets your expectations. We wanted a kid friendly ship that didn't feel like people were stacked on top of one another, and Liberty of the Seas didn't disappoint. The ability to walk onto a balcony was priceless and I'll never do without one! Bring your allotted two bottles of wine. Don't book expensive excursions through the ship. Buy through or wait until you get there. There is plenty to drink without buying the drink packages, unless you want to drink a ton of alcohol. I bought a 15 specialty coffee pass and used it, but the free coffee was decent and plentiful, so not sure I'd buy another pass. We ordered a few pina coladas and otherwise drank our wine -way cheaper than drink packages. The only thing I didn't like was all of the up-selling attempts. That was annoying. The food was inconsistent, and should be better in the MDR for what you pay. Two nights were really good, two nights were bad, and two nights were ehh. The one night we ate filets at chop grill, which costs extra, was awesome. We won't be multiple cruise people (maybe one more to Alaska), but it's worth doing every 5-10 years.

Probably the best part of the cruise was the excellent service The food was great, and the waiters were incredibly attentive.  The facilities were much nicer  than some of the other cruises we have been on, and including things like a rock wall and ice skating, which were included in the price.  Overall, I would say it was much nicer than some of the other cruises we have been on coming from Galveston.

Wonderful Time

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We went on this cruise with family.  We had a group of 17 people.  The cruise overall was wonderful.  Lots to do!  The staff could be a little friendlier.  The ports Honduras- Beautiful and relaxing, Cozumel - Wonderful however Costa Maya- will stay on the ship next time.  I felt like it wasn't tourist ready.  The waterpark was fun for the kids but the beach did not look safe to me.  We didn't stay long.  The food on the ship was Spectacular!!!  Happy

Liberty of the Seas out of Galveston

i would definitely recommend this cruise for relaxation and a stress free vacation. Absolutely beautiful ship on a small scale of the Oasis of the Seas. Departure could have been better for anyone travelling on a bus transfer to the airport. We were first to leave the ship however our luggage was in the last section and by the time we got there the lines for customs were so long that we were late arriving at the bus. Luggage should have been the first to be found as you come into the terminal from the ship.

RC - Liberty - May 28

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

This cruise was outstanding.  Main dining could not have been better.  Head waiter (Charles), waiter (Bento), and assistant (Michelle) were probably the best I have ever had.  Service was always timely in dining room and bars.  Buffet always had more than enough staff to wait on you for whatever your needs were.  Staff always wore a smile and were eager to make you vacation the best they could.

Wonderful Cruise!

We enjoyed our cruise on the Liberty of the Seas on May 28 - June 4!  The dining was fabulous...a great selection and the food was great in the Main Dining Hall, which we enjoyed for dinner.  The food in the Windjammer was good; when we went there for breakfast, it was sometimes difficult to find seating during peak times (around 9 a.m.)  All staff were attentive and caring regardless of the time of day.  The entertainment was good - I especially enjoyed the Ice Show and the 70's and 80's show the night before the Saturday Night Fever show.  The only difficulty we found had to do with the Waverunner.  Both of our sons wanted to try it, but it was often reserved for lessons.  Our ports - Roatan, Costa Maya, and Cozumel were good as well. Getting on and off the ship was relatively easy.  We look forward to cruising with RCL in the future!

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.

Cupcake decorating is NOT just for kids. I'm 61 and loved it.
