Loved the big ship, very clean. New slides were great. Edgar (Elvis) and Oka, our dining room waiters did a great job. They really seemed to care about doing their job well. Our room steward, Raphael, was very good too. Deck 4, outside, ... Read more

As a frequent cruiser and long time fan of RC, I must sadly say, that this was the worst cruise I've ever been on. I would liken it to a two star all inclusive resort. Only problem is that it wasn't all inclusive. What happened to the old ... Read more

Family reunion with 9 members booked in 3 suites. Ship is very well maintained and beautiful. It was at capacity. Grand suites are lovely--well laid out, even double sinks in the large bath. Bathtub has very high sides which makes it ... Read more

This was not my first time cruising on Royal Caribbean. So, I was very aware of the kind of service to expect. There are a couple of areas of improvement needed, but I will discuss those in detail later. We departed from the extremely ... Read more

We have cruised over 50 times and approximately 23 on RCCL. Because of the Diamond Plus benefits and the proximity of Galveston we chose to go on the Liberty. Our dining room service was excellent(thank you Norman and Elze), our cabin ... Read more

This is my 7th cruise as a passenger, and I went with my good buddy. We also went on a Carnival out of Galveston a few years ago. I live in Texas and didn't want to fly or drive far for the cruise, so chose Galveston again. Getting on the ... Read more

We started out by waiting in a very slow long line to check in after security. The security line was fairly slow too. We are platinum and thought we would have a very speedy entry, but that was not the case. My husband, who is 77, ... Read more

Our family (including 3 children) went on a cruise of the Western Caribbean on The Liberty of the Seas, which is a large well-maintained ship. The amenities are as advertised, and the food on the whole was excellent. The best part of the ... Read more

I have been on at least 70 RCL cruises and am Diamond plus with about 530 points. I am writing to tell frequent cruisers about how disappointed I was with my back to back sailing on the Liberty of the Seas from 5/15/16/-5/29/16. First, RCL ... Read more

Went with friends who already booked it. We usually cruise on the smaller Radiance Class. We also were spoiled cruising on a 200 passenger Viking "ship". But we went with high expectations. Never again will I cruise on a ... Read more

This was a last minute cruise we booked because we got a very good rate. We ate most of our meals in the buffet. The service was as good as in the restaurant. They had wait staff to find you a table and bring you drinks, dessert, or ... Read more

I've cruised numerous times with RC, but this is the first with LOS. The ship was good, never felt over crowded even though the trip was sold out. Very roomy. Superior balcony room was very nice and the balcony itself was larger than I ... Read more

Embarkation went smoothly but disembarkation was a disaster. They had the luggage lined right where passengers were supposed to through to get to customs and immigration. There was complete chaos; passengers with their luggage could not go ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the location of the embarkation/disembarkation port. My wife and I were 6 points away from obtaining Diamond Plus status, and we wanted to accomplish this before our next family cruise. We have been on this ... Read more

This was my fifth cruise, but my first on a very large ship with more than 4000 passengers. Overall, the cruise met and exceeded all my expectations. One contributing factor was the timing of our trip - we went in early May before schools ... Read more

After 20 years of cruising we probably won't return to a Royal Caribbean cruise ever again and definitely not one from Galveston, Texas. The city is not convenient to get to and both it and the port are very run down. Boarding was ... Read more
