All standard cabins aboard Liberty of the Seas include two twin beds that can convert to a queen bed, a private bath with shower, a mirrored vanity, small couch, mini-fridge, flat-panel television, phone, hair dryer and a safe. RCTV offers 29 channels, including CNN International, ESPN International, Discovery, the Cartoon Network and a DreamWorks movie channel.
As for storage space, you'll find standard compact storage options including a small closet with built-in shelves, along with two columns of small drawers on either side of the living room vanity.
Bathrooms (which start at 18 square feet for an interior cabin) typically have a small stand-up shower with rounded sliding door and a soap dispenser, small toilet and sink area, with small shelves hidden within the mirrored medicine cabinet. Your stateroom attendant provides shampoo, conditioner and soap as needed.
About half the staterooms aboard Liberty are cabins with balconies, and there are various accessible cabins and rooms designed especially for families that include separate bedrooms and larger sitting areas.
Generally speaking, we found the staterooms to be in need of a cosmetic makeover. The tired drapery, aged furniture and worn carpeting reflected the age of the vessel more so than any other area on the ship. We did note that some of the staterooms in higher categories appear to have newer furnishings.
Interior: Inside cabins average a tiny 150 square feet. On Decks 6, 7 and 8, there are inside cabins with views of the Promenade that are 160 square feet. There are six Family Interior staterooms on the ship that sleep up to six people and offer 324 square feet of space, with two twin beds that convert to a Royal King, a sofa that pulls out to a double bed and two pull-down beds.
Oceanview: You can choose from a standard Oceanview (159 square feet) or additional categories that offer a bit more space: a Large Oceanview (175 square feet), the 24 Panoramic Oceanview staterooms on Deck 12 with floor-to-ceiling windows (191 to 215 square feet) or the Larger Panoramic Oceanview staterooms (283 square feet). Families can enjoy the space to spread out in a Family Oceanview (338 square feet) or a Panoramic Family Oceanview (406 square feet), both of which can accommodate up to six passengers.
