Liberty of the Seas

4.0 out of 5

Overview

Liberty of the Seas first set sail in 2007, and offers voyages to the western Caribbean from Galveston, Texas. The second of Royal Caribbean’s Freedom-class ships, Liberty and her two sisters were the largest cruise vessels in the world until Oasis of the Seas debuted in 2009. Holding 3,798 guests, there is a myriad of activities for fun-seekers to choose from, including the Tidal Wave boomerang slide, surf simulator FlowRider, bumper cars, ice skating, and a rock climbing wall. For activities that are a bit less heart-pounding, there are outdoor movie nights, cooking demonstrations, mini golf, and a mystery dinner theater. Kids will especially love the variety of swimming pools, ice skating shows, DreamWorks character meet-and-greets and parades, and the youth clubs. Adults can unwind and take a dip in the Solarium pool, get a massage at the spa, or take in a Broadway at Sea production.

Aboard Liberty of the Seas, every guest will find something to suit their taste buds. There are nine dining options to choose from, including modern Mexican eatery Sabor, Chops Grille steakhouse, Tuscany-inspired Giovanni’s Table, burgers and shakes at Johnny Rockets, and of course the main dining room and lido deck buffet. For an after-dinner cocktail, try the R-Bar, Latin-themed Boleros club, Schooner piano bar, or Vintages wine bar. Nearly half of the cabins aboard Liberty have balconies, and there is a variety of suites to choose from, including Royal Family Suites which hold up to eight people. One fun cabin “easter egg” that’s only found on the Freedom-class ships is the Ben & Jerry’s “Sweet”, or “cow butt cabin.” The window in this room overlooks the Promenade and sits right behind the cows that welcome guests to Ben & Jerry’s below. As a perk for taking this, erm, obstructed view cabin, cruisers enjoy a cow-themed room and free ice cream during the voyage.

Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our first cruise, experiencing some pros and cons. We will definitely cruise again...but will be selective of the number of people on board and the time of year we travel. We will continue to weigh all the additional costs involved and compare them to other means of travel. The service and entertainment were outstanding!

Great cruise. Itinerary is mediocre but the ship makes up for it. Bring sunblock and go to stingray city and turtle farm in Grand Cayman. Snorkel or dive in Cozumel.

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.
