Two sisters (50-ish) and Mom (late 70s) on our first cruise. Had a blast. Did as little as we wanted on some days, as much as we could handle on other days.
The ship is very nice. Plenty of various activities. Plenty of food choices.
Every member of staff that we had contact with was beyond friendly and helpful.
Looking forward to our next cruise.
The Liberty is a very nice ship. The part that stands out to me is the promenade. That is the main mall type walking area down the middle of the ship. It's 4-5 stories tall. There are shops and places to eat. Two of which are free to eat at. Sorrentos and the promenade cafe. I really like the pizza at sorrentos. The other free places to eat on the ship are the windjammer and the main dining area. In the main dining area at (your time dining), you can make reservations for whatever time you want and whatever seat you want. We enjoyed a window seat every evening. The menu changed every night, with some things staying the same. It was a really good verity for a 7 day cruise. Before my cruise, I saw some negative reviews for the windjammer, but I thought the windjammer was excellent! Good food and a lot to choose from. Sometimes it gets crowded, but we always found a seat within a few minutes. Just be patient. The pools were good. There is 2 main pools and 1 adult pool. The adult pool and one of the main pools is a very comfortable temperature. The other pool is a little chilly. The activities are fun to watch. We enjoyed the belly flop contest. The slides were good but slow. Hardly any lines. Our favorite slide was the tube slide. It was a rush. The flow rider was a blast! We did the knee board, rather than the surfing. If you want to try something different, and you're a bit active, this is for you. We saw all ages and sizes on the flow rider. You need to sign a waver, but you can do that on royal carribean website. Then pick up your wristband up by the flowrider. Rock wall was pretty sweet too! Putt putt golf, shuffleboard and the sports court were also a lot of fun! All of the shows were very good! Saturday night fever, the ice skating show, Nathan Osmond and the comedy were among my favorites. There is also a free skate on the rink that is really fun.
In Roatan, we took a cab right off the boat ($60 for the entire day). We went to a park with monkeys and other animals. We got to hold the monkeys and take pictures. It was $10 each to get into the park, and we had a guide for about 30 minutes. Pretty sweet. They also had a botanical garden there. After that we went to west beach, on the other side of the island. The beach was great, but so many people crowding the beach trying to sell stuff. The best part of the beach was we walked down about a 1/2 mile to the end of the beach (by the cliffs) and rented some snorkel gear for $5-$10 and snorkeled the reaf. Really good snorkeling there!!!!
Our favorite excursion was in Belize. It was cave tubing. Go to cavetubing.bz. It's $50 for a 5 hour excursion, and you get a really good meal with it. The tour guides were excellent. We are always on a budget, so this was very affordable and a lot of fun! It's #1 on trip adviser. It also gives you a tour through belize city on your 1 hour ride to the caves.
In cozumel we rented a car right off the boat for $60. Went directly to the san gervasio ruins. Loved it! Eguanas everywhere. It was like $10 each to get in. we did it without a tour guide, so we weren't tied down. It was great. Prices are negotiable at the shops for souvenirs. After that, we drove the rest of the way around the island, ate lunch and found an awesome beach.
We had a wonderful time on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas ship. Everything from boarding the boat to disembarking went exceptional well. The food was very good. We ate at two of the specialty restaurants, Chops Steak House and Sabor. Wow, that is some good food. We did not miss a show. We saw real quick the quality and time put into these productions and looked forward to them each evening. Definitely will be cruising again on this ship.
Boarding the ship was simple and easy. We got to the ship at 10:30 a.m. and got on board quickly. Luggage arrived to room at 1pm as promised. Room was spotless and attendant was over-the-top cordial and accommodating. Meals in dining room were above average. Had dinners in specialty restaurants (steak and Italian) and both were excellent and highly recommended for a quiet and romantic setting.
The ships entertainment was really great and maybe the best we have seen in 15+ cruises. Professional and impressive performances consistently delivered at all shows...really great!
Fitness center nice and quite busy but clean.
Overall, excellent value and relaxing with a fantastic staff. Ship needs some work as carpet and other areas showing wear.
This was my first cruise and my newly wedded wife's second. It was our honeymoon cruise and our main activity off boat was scuba diving. We thoroughly enjoyed the ship. The crew was amazing and the ship was clean and well maintained. The only negative was one of two nights in the main dining room where we had a waiter who was clearly having a bad day. He got upset because my wife ordered something other then the beef dish that he recommended and it went down hill from there. The other other issue was an early morning pre excursion room service order that didn't arrive in time for us to eat it. Generally it seems to me that you'd have to really try hard to not have a great time aboard this ship. You would have to be going out of your way and looking for trouble. The food was great and the drinks even better. We ate at Sabor two times, Chops once and did the mystery dinner theater which was with Giovannis and all of the food was great. We dove in Roatan and Cozumel. If you plan on renting any gear be sure to check it out at the dock before the boat leaves. We had one diver in Roatan who didn't do this and his BCD didn't work. Roatan was great visibility and great diving but Cozumel was even better. We saw a 5' shark, eel, sea turtle and a large ray all on our first dive. Visibility was unlimited and the water was a warm 78. Overall the cruise was over the top great and we can't wait to go again.
Probably the best part of the cruise was the excellent service The food was great, and the waiters were incredibly attentive. The facilities were much nicer than some of the other cruises we have been on, and including things like a rock wall and ice skating, which were included in the price. Overall, I would say it was much nicer than some of the other cruises we have been on coming from Galveston.
