Liberty is the second entry in RCI's line of Freedom class ships. She is much in common with her older sister with just a few changes. This is a huge ship and in two days it was hard to see everything. Outstanding was the ice show, which would be fabulous even on land, but was even more so considering we were at sea, albeit with perfectly calm seas. Crew worked very hard to please and was smiling and friendly as is the norm on RCI ships. Cabins were nicely appointed and the new bedding a HUGE improvement from the old cot like bedding that is being replaces on all RCI ships this year. Public rooms were varied and well designed. The Catacombs disco was a decorators dream, with small touches everything to enhance the gothic overtones. Lots of kid and teen friendly places on this ship and RCI has made it very clear that families are their target market. The design of Freedom as well as Voyager class make that abundantly clear. As for food, it was standard RCI; good not great. At Sorrento, the food looked better than it tasted. Windjammer offered many options and good seating. Food in the dining room was average. Cafe Promenade offered a large selection of sweets and snacks throughout the day. While one will never go hungry on this ship, neither is the fare offered creative or exceptional. I am sure it will please the vast majority of folks sailing on this ship. Chops and Portofino were closed but I would guess they would be just as good as they are on RCI's other vessels. The gym and fitness facility is outstanding and my single favorite part of the ship. While all RCI ships have above average fitness areas, Freedom and Liberty take this to a whole new level. RCI has another winner in the monster ship market with Liberty. Those looking for a casual, activity rich cruise will undoubtedly be very pleased with this new addition to RCI's fleet.
