The design and implementation of dm-crypt + LUKS appears to be solid.
The code is well maintained and your use case is well supported by
distributions and other software.

I haven't given it a thorough audit but at least dm-crypt has avoided
many of the OMG WTF bugs and design flaws that have plagued other disk
encryption systems (looking at you, ecryptfs).
