A bit of background: DH and I love to cruise. We are 54 and 57--kids are grown and we are pretty low maintenance. We have taken our last few cruises with our granddaughter who loves to cruise, but she started kindergarten this year so couldn't come along--she wasn't happy we left her! Because of our work schedules, this week worked well for us. We have been on many cruises and have sailed Holland America, NCL, RCCL, Costa and Carnival. We have been fairly loyal to Royal and this was our first cruise as Diamond level. We don't particularly care for leaving out of Galveston; as Fort Lauderdale and Miami are much more organized. I thought the service and staff were excellent on this ship. The only downgrade for the cruise was just the cuts they are making across the board to help control costs and feed their bottom line. I appreciate them keeping cruising affordable, but overall I will say that we have had a better impression with NCL the last few years than Royal. That being said, I will go where I can get the most value for my money and what fits in our schedule. We have been to most of the islands so itinerary is not as important to us in the Caribbean. We decided to take a last minute cruise on a comp from the casino. Booked about 6 weeks out. We were in a balcony cabin 7628. Cabin was fine and no complaints. Plenty of room for 2 people. We were on Liberty last November and vowed that we wouldn't sail out of Galveston again since the disembarkation was horrible the last 2 cruises out of there. But, since we live in Kansas we can drive to Galveston and save on airfare so we booked. We originally had thought of going to the Bahamas for a land vacation...glad we didn't as Dorian would have changed our plans! Reminder to everyone to always have insurance just in case! We went to the Diamond Lounge for the first night and never went back. So crowded and not worth the time since you can get drinks at any bar. We ate breakfast every morning in the Windjammer. Food was good, hot and plentiful. We are early risers and so there was never a problem with crowds. We did try and eat 1 dinner in the Windjammer and it really wasn't good at all so we ate all our other dinners in the main dining room. They have really cut back on the menu items over the years! Still plenty of selection and the food was good...not great, but overall good. We had MTD and never waited more than 5 minutes for our table for 2. Bryann and Ryan were our wait staff and they were outstanding! We don't really enjoy the specialty restaurants; we have tried them a few times, but don't really see the value when there are plenty of other options. We went to a couple of the comedy shows which were good. We had already seen the production show and ice show last fall so we didn't repeat them. There were lots of trivia and games available for those who like those activities. We went to the pool a couple of days, but it was pretty crowded. The solarium was not as relaxing as I would have hoped. We hadn't used it before on our last few cruises as we had our GD with us. There were groups and it was rather noisy. I was not a fan of the cruise director, but I don't really care who the cruise director is on board. They don't make or break a cruise for me. We cruise to relax. I enjoy spending time napping and reading. DH likes to wander around and see some of the activities so cruising works well for us! Our only complaint on this cruise was the air conditioning wasn't working well in the casino and even the promenade and theater tended to be on the warm side. I know the casino even went so far as to set up fans to help keep the air circulating. Not pleasant at all! At least it wasn't a problem in our cabin. One of people we went with on an excursion said their air conditioner wasn't working in their cabin very well either. Not good in the Caribbean with all the humidity! Our stops were Cozumel; which we usually love, but decided just to wander around that day and get back on the ship since we had never spent a day on the ship while everyone was in port before. Grand Cayman, where we got off the tender and took a $5 cab ride to 7 mile beach and went to Royal Beach Club. Get there early if you want a chair! Falmouth Jamaica where we booked the walking food tour on found on Trip Adviser. Highly recommend this tour! The last time we waited for an assigned disembarkation time and didn't get off the ship until almost 11am. It was chaos and one of the main reasons we decided we never wanted to sail out of Galveston again. This time we did self assist and were off by 07:45 and in our car by 8:00. So much better!

We just did the liberty of the seas galveston 7 day cozumel and other islands overall a great trip other reviews said the ship was not clean wrong she was very clean and we could always get a table at the windjammer buffet. the food was good in the MDr no need for expensive restaurants the pools were heated not like Carnival my only complaint was the hard old bed in our balcony 8303 cabin old stained pads under the mattress hard to sleep the blue hole tour was the best with a stop at the lazy river in a inner tube we booked a private tour and worth the slight extra price other tours had 44 people in a big bus and you were always waiting on the other people I have enjoyed 74 cruises and will be back on RCC AND WOULD CONSIDER THE LIBERTYOF THE SEAS AGAIN WE STAYED AT THE HARBOR HOUSE AND HAD DINNER AT SHRIMP AND STUFF A HORRIBLE RESTAURANT DONT DINE THERE Read Less

Liberty of the Seas is a great ship with a good crew, however there were a few things that were interesting. Firstly the slides that were recently added were a great experience, and by far the coolest slides I have ever seen on a ship. The tube slide was fantastic, and was more like something I would expect from a good waterpark! The downsides start there. The cabin was something I haven't done in the past, a rear facing Junior Suite. The bed was not great at all, being just a foam pad on top of the regular bed. This wasn't even covered with a standard sheet and kept becoming exposed after a nights' rest when a "luxury pillow top mattress" was advertised both on the phone with RCI directly and online. The first night we found a very large bug in our cabin that looked something like a bigger box elder bug when we moved a pillow. After notifying guest services they had us switch to another cabin for the evening and had a team search for and eliminate the bug and any others they found before returning. I am happy to report the rest of the trip went bug free in the cabin. Guest services was great at helping provide a solution but often seemed slow. During the cruise we had an issue with our pre-purchased drink packages not working at several venues, apparently it wasn't 'activated' on the card and took 3 trips standing in line at guest services before it was fixed. All our shore excursions booked through the cruise line were cancelled as well due to "operational issues caused by lack of attendance." As much as I like Royal Caribbean this trip was a bit of a let down. As compensation for the issues they gave a refund of the shore excursions and a $200 voucher towards future cruise fare. Read Less
