We liked the ports that this cruise was stopping at. All ports of call went smooth and we enjoyed it very much. When you eat at the open buffet. On the Liberty it's called the Winjammer. Be very careful and choose salads without ... Read more

Not impress with the ship. It was clean but not a ship that I would book again. There was only one buffet which caused issues with lines and seating. You were being sold something on the whole trip and dining choices were non existent ... Read more

There were 3 adult women in one stateroom. The drop-down bed was a little shakey, as well as the ladder, and woke the other 2 travelers when she climbed down. We would have preferred a pull out love seat instead of a drop down. The ... Read more

For the port of calls. Also hate to cruise out of Florida. The dining experience was great! Everything else was not for me. To loud, partying and loud music and stupid dance contests at the pool. Pool is for relaxing not loud ... Read more

We were invited to join our niece's family, who were already booked, so we went along as we had never been to two of the ports. Our cruise was excellent. No problems whatsoever. The weather at the beginning could have been better but that ... Read more

We chose to take this cruise for 7 members of our family because of its close proximity to our home. This allowed us to drive rather than fly. We found the ship to be perfect for family with children ages 3 (potty trained)-high school. ... Read more

Galveston is a easily accessible port with simple parking and plenty of hotel and townhome options. Some in our party flew into Hobby Airport and took a quick transportation transfer to the port. Our group included a few first time ... Read more

We embarked during a flood in Galveston (no one's fault and that doesn't impact my review) and in fact, made it more epic. I was a single parent travelling with an 11 year old. Pros: Amazingly quick embarkation and debarkation ... Read more

We arrived in Galveston the night before and did some walking around the Strand. We stayed at the Tremont, which, if you are looking for a nearby hotel to the terminal, this is it! Beautiful and stately, fabulous rooms. However, it's ... Read more

We have been on several RCI cruises and this was not up to par with the others. The boat was fine and clean, but kids club and Cruise Entertainment team were nowhere close to as good as other ships we have been on. Kids club was a ... Read more

Any cruise, anywhere should be considered a luxury even by American standards, and so it's a little awkward to sound spoiled by complaining. But you're reading these reviews for the truth, right? Yes, the Liberty is a beautiful ship, ... Read more
