The cruise itself was fantastic. Not a thing I would change about the trip, the ports of call, or any aspect of the cruise. The crew was beyond fantastic my only regret was I didn't bring enough cash for extra tips for the staff. There was one aspect I was very disappointed with: the Internet service. We paid $20 per day for access but the connection was very slow if we could connect at all. We were bumped all the time, it was very frustrating, I don't think it's worth the money we paid for access. It reminded me of the old 28.8K days. Other than that we have already booked our next Royal Caribbean cruise for next year
The weather was great, the ship was beautifully remodeled, the service was awesome and the food was magnificent. We went to two different Specialty Restaurants (Sabor and Chops) and they were both excellent. All in all, our cruise was very relaxing and exceeded all our expectations.
Liberty of the Seas staff & crew - top notch! Our vacation began with walking into a very spacious interior stateroom! We were not sure what to expect, but there was plenty of space to move around. The stateroom was clean and our stateroom attendant and those on our deck were friendly and top notch. We chose My Time Dining and we were absolutely overwhelmed with the staff in the main dining room. Our waiter, Jesus, and asst waiter, Luckner were most enjoyable! We enjoyed many of the activities on-board-the Flow Rider truly is as much fun as it sounds. The entertainment on board was great with many options. We enjoyed the Schooner with JR Neal and his piano! The shows were the best we have experienced from any cruise line!! Great getaway on a clean ship, smiling & friendly crew, with Captain Rune- Liberty of the Seas!
Anne Marie you are the best. We learned so much about Belize it was mind blowing, thanks to a local that took us around his city. The beach in Roatan was absolutely gorgeous and the dune buggy excursion was so much fun with friends. The ship was huge with something going on every minute and the food....was delicious. Thanks again.
Everything on this cruise was impeccable. I would highly recommend to everyone. It was my first cruise but the people I talked to on the ship that were seasoned cruisers had nothing but good things to say.
Please work on the Loyalty rewards and how to handle all of the people who have reached Diamond and above. A bit disappointed. They were unprepared to handle that many people. Bad example for those who had their first experience with being a Diamond.
The ship is not made for people being together as a group. Too hard to find tables big enough for a group in the buffet area. Buffet staff is amazing though. Best part of the ship experience. Promenade is SO narrow that you can't even walk together as a couple and when there are sales you can't walk through at all without a lot of trouble. Shore excursion staff was rude and not helpful in any way. Room staff was great. Ice cream machine is on the pool deck where kids make a huge mess of it, it's always broken or out of cones. It should not be in that location where it can be abused and broken all the time. Not enough food choices on this ship for being such a big ship. The ship is not built to push you outside and to give you views. It's built more to push you inside. I hated that. My previous experience with RCL was the Serenade, which was just the opposite. Will try NCL for my next cruise.
We just came back from our 7 night cruise out of Galveston. We were originally booked on Empress of the Seas, then due to Dry Dock issues, it was canceled and we switched itinerarit's. BEST IDEA EVER! Bigger ship, LOTS of great shows, fun things to do for all ages! My group decorated our own cupcakes at the Cupcake Cupboard! Food was wonderful no matter if it was in the Windjammer or Main dining room! Routan, Belize and Cozumel were great! Snorkeling experience in Cozumel was outstanding! Hands down best trip ever!
We loved having a balcony even though we didn't sit outside often. There was so much extra light in the room and the feeling of extra space. The entertainment was first class. We especially enjoyed the ice skating shows. Very amazing. (Tip: go at least 45 minutes early to get a good seat). Our cabin steward was Debra Jack and we cannot say enough good things about her. She was just the very best. The food was not as good as we've experienced with other cruise lines but it was adequate. We didn't realize that we were not actually in Honduras when we were on the island of Roatan. We are older and there was a lot of walking on the Gumbalimba excursion. I enjoyed the park a lot, especially the monkeys and birds.
