Liberty of the Seas began regular cruises from Galveston in November of 2015. Liberty of the Seas joined the Royal Caribbean cruise fleet in 2007, with space for over 3,500 passengers. The ship received extensive renovations in early 2016 – read about the renovations.
Accommodations come in four classes: Suite/Deluxe, Balcony, Outside and Interior. There’s enough to do aboard Liberty that you may not mind the savings that come with an interior room – or maybe you’re ready to go the luxury route with a stay in one of the ship’s Royal, Presidential Family or Owners suites?

Anytime is dessert time at the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop.
Go surfing without going ashore with the Liberty’s “Flow Rider” surf pool. The H2O Zone waterpark has sculpture fountains, geyers and a waterfall surrounding the excessively fun pools and water slides. Test your pugilistic skills (or find some with the help of an experiencing boxing instructor) in the Everlast boxing ring. Unleash your inner Dorothy Hamill on the ice skating rink or trek to the upper reaches of the ship on the rock climbing wall. Relax in a slightly edgy way in the solarium’s whirlpools that hang out 12 feet over the edge of the ship.
