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.

I do not recommend anybody to book with this cruise line. Very disorganized disembarkation, very uncomfortable room, ship never left or arrived on schedule.

Wonderful Escape by caribebaby

It was a wonderful, relaxing, and fun 7-day cruise. We hiked up the Coba Mayan pyramid in Cozumel, snorkeled and petted stingrays in Grand Cayman, and rafted down the river in Jamaica. In the evening, we settled into our comfortable balcony stateroom and were pampered by our excellent exotic waiters Amine and Socorro. Thank you for the great memories!

Overall we love to cruise and hope to cruise again next year as well with Royal when the prices are right. If you have never cruised before I highly encourage you to at least try a cruise. It has something for everyone.

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

If it is your first cruise watch the cruise ship channels. Pay attention to the port of calls and the map. Plan every evening for the next days schedule. You can't do everything so plan out your day. Take pictures. The ship is beautiful!

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