Liberty of the Seas

7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)

Sail date: September 15, 2019

Ship: Liberty of the Seas

Cabin type: Suite

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Review summary

Really enjoyed the ship and our room. Even though it rained 6 of 7 days did not bother us with plenty of inside activities. Would do the same cruise again if cheap. Prefer cruises that go out of Florida simply because of distance between airport in Houston and cruise terminal in Galveston.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Only ate in Main Dining room & room service. Was very disappointed to find out Windjammer closes at 9:00. I am so use to getting a snack at midnight on all previous cruises this took me by surprise.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The casino is very small. However, it still was fun to play there without loosing a bundle of money.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Saturday Night Fever was an average Cruise ship show. The comedians were average.

Children's Programs

Not travelling with children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every person we encountered in the ship was extremely professional and eager to help.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I concern the Freedom class the best layout of all the RCCL fleet. Not too big, not too small. They are doing a good job of not letting it look dated.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Jr Suite which is 1.5 size of a balcony room. A nice size for 2 people. The bathroom is still tiny. Lots of closet space. There is no longer mini fridges in rooms. Now they are coolers with fixed temps, so forget about having a cold drink in your room or keeping milk for a day.

Ship tip

We found out this trip that our gambling points add up over a year period & once we reach 2500 we become prime members for a year. Prime members drink for free in the casino, have the best discount for wifi if it is booked on board and other perks. Trick is to check with the Casino host on first day to find out points for year. You want to get the “Prime” sticker added to your room card as soon as possible.

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico

2 out of 5
Has improved through the years. It is still Mexico. We have booked a shore excursion 4 times to go to the Mayan ruins with RCCL when in Cozumel and on every cruise it has been cancelled at the last minute.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Have been to this port many times. Lots of do. Best shopping port on a Western Cruise.

Falmouth, Jamaica

2 out of 5
Not much to do here except shop at the pier & be harassed by the locals to buy drugs if you wonder pass the gated port area.

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
We were doing a back to back cruise which was arranged to run very smoothly.
