Review summary

As always, Royal Caribbean was GREAT! We love RCI and will continue to cruise with them in the foreseeable future. Captain James kept us informed of the Hurricane and what/where we were going to go.

We haven't ever had a problem with embarkation. Just be patient and everything goes very smooth!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The ship has amazing food and so much to choose from. You can always find something you like and most times, find new things that you love.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We used the fitness center, went down the slides, pools, hot tubs. So much to do on board and we had fun trying almost everything.

The orchestra on Liberty is Great!! The ice show always amazes us and the other entertainment, the comedians, bands and game shows were great. We laughed and had a great time.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Sheena and Xiouyau in the Main Dining Room were very good and always right there when we wanted something. Sheena has a beautiful smile and was always very helpful and attentive.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Every area on the ship was clean and there were always people doing maintenance on the deck and pool areas. Nothing to complain about here.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a Promenade Room this year and we really enjoyed it. We wondered if it would be too loud from the shops below, but we were amazed at how quiet it was. We booked the same room for next year.

Ship tip

Be sure to pack long pants or a jacket. The Ice Show is something you don't want to miss, but it can get a little cool in there.

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

5 out of 5
We drove into Galveston and departed on Liberty there. No excursion. We do enjoy sailing out of Galveston and will do it again.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
We went on a beach excursion in Honduras and really enjoyed it. The tour guide was very informative on the drive and the beach was beautiful.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
No Excursion here, but we enjoyed shopping.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
No excursion here either, but we walked down the streets close to the port shopping and had a lot of fun looking for one item in particular for our daughter in law. Everyone tried to help us find it and end the end, we did.

Well we actually disembarked in Miami this year due to Hurricane Harvey. It was fine and the CEO of Royal Caribbean came aboard to ask if we had been treated well, during the extra days at sea. Everyone was very accommodating and friendly.
