Review summary

There were fights everywhere and security was never around to descale the situations! The ship is out dated & smells of old musty rug! There were rust stains throughout the bathroom in our cabin! at one point water ran out in our shower. Our bed collapsed and they solution was a screw! There was a smell of feces all throughout the 2nd deck which was masked with cleaning supplies making the smell worse. Staff had no idea what direction to point us to! This was our first time cruising and this ship certainly left a bad impression. I would recommend another ship and if the price is to good-then you get what you paid for. To us it felt like visiting the ghetto, the crowds were unbelivable no manners and no respect for others traveling and no idea how to act! Staff need to learn how to cut people off from the liquor even if they haven't made there limit for the day if they notice they are not holding their liquor well! we spent most of the time with our children by our side because safety seemed to be an issue! I wish that for our first cruise i can say we spent an amazing time but the truth is we were so ready to get back the same day we got on!

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
This cabin is way to small to accommodate 4 people. The beds and lines and pullout were stained horribly! It looked dirty and dingy, there was a weird smell in the room. Upon us arriving my son sat on the pull out to claim it before my daughter would and the thing just collapsed right in front of us, i was afraid he had gotten hurt with a piece of old wood, when i called this in, maintenance came and put 1 screw into it an said all better now! Upon looking around there seem to have been many of these 1 screw fix ups through out the entire room! this was the most upsetting thing i have ever witnessed. It would have been nice to hear would you like another cabin but instead they assured me all was good! Even knowing that there was a septic backup that and our entire deck area smelling like feces!

Ship tip

Safety is certainly a Huge factor & the Liberty is outdated take another ship
