 Everything was fantastic.  Food was good, customer service could not be better. The only thing I did not expect that you need more money to spend inside ship than the cost of the whole trip.

Best 4-night Cruise available!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 11, 2014

From the moment we entered this beautiful vessel, we were amazed at everything she had to offer! Having cruised many times, we knew what one would experience on aWindjammert cruise with only one port of call. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised! The entertainment on this ship was exceptional...especially the ice skating show! There was great entertainment each night. As far as dining goes, we weren't disappointed at all. Our group like to eat whenever we want and not spend 2 hours each night at dinner, so we chose to eat in the Windjammer casual buffet 3 of our 4-nights. We opted to eat in Chops steakhouse for our last night. It is a reservation only dining venue and worth every penny of the $30 per person additional charge. We did dine in the main dining room for a special lunch during one of our sea days, as they were offering an exceptional salad bar and pasta special for no additional charge and no special dress code. All of our group was very satisfied, as the service was excellent and the food delicious. Of course, the fact that we were seated at a huge picture window where we literally witnessed dolphin playing and jumping in the wild added to the whole experience! We found the ship to be extremely clean, tidy, fresh, and updated. We found all employees to be very friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, and happy to assist at every corner. Our CD, Luke Arrowsmith, was awesome! He had a great stage presence, funny morning show on the ship's tv, and did a great job of communication throughout the cruise! The only thing I would warn potential cruisers about leaving on the Liberty of the Seas out of Ft. Lauderdale, is that the ramp/walkway up onto the ship is EXTREMELY STEEP! So much so, that if you're not in good physical shape, you may opt to request a wheelchair and have assistance in boarding the ship at this location. All of that said, we would do it again and again and again, as we loved every minute of it! Royal Caribbean has NEVER disappointed me! :)

my recent cruise review

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 06, 2014

The Liberty of the seas, Royal Carribean is a large, clean and beautiful ship.However, if walking distances is a problem try to book at the mid-ship or front of ship for cabins.  The walking was quite distant and it seemed everything we needed to go to was always at the other end of the ship. THE SHOWS were spectacular every night ,especially Saturday Night Fever.show on the last night. Dining in the dining room was slow attendance I believe to too many tables to wait on. Food was not above average just o.k. Cabin service was good. We are in our 80's and this ship was geared to a younger group. Rock climbing, ice skating, etc.I would have enjoyed more daytime instrucional classes on days of cruising. We should have listened to the director telling us to shop at stores approved.  That's hard to do when each storekeeper begs you to come in for special deals. I bought something they claimed was diamond pendant got a certificate for such. My daughter bought  diamond studs and checked it out with other merchants to find they were cz's. Returned them and I did so also. I would have been out $500.00. I'm keeping an open eye on my credit card for cancellation. We did a land tourin Belize.Interesting. Did not want to do so in Cozumel. I will not return to either ot these ports again. If you want to see ruins or local merchandise, all the carribean ports are the same.We enjoyed our 5 night vacation because it was a family get together for 7 of us, and cruising is an easy way to enjoy. One family member could not attend and I am waiting for the insurance rebate. His non-attendance changed the cost of the room considerably and nullified a rebate on room credit.

dinner plcement

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 06, 2014

Our main complaint was, they separated us for dinner.  There were 8 of us & they had 3 of us at a separate table, which couldn't be corrected that night.  It took most of the next day to get it done, with several of our party talking to many people.  But it was taken care of.

Okay

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 06, 2014

The food and service was excellent.  With the exception of the ice show, the entertainment was very boring. The staff was not fun.  They just stood around and tried to make you buy their merchandise.  The payout in the casino was horrible.  Never even broke even one day. They asked serious questions at trivia and it was very low-key and not fun. The only fun was the excursions.

Belize a disappointment

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 06, 2014

I wanted to visit Belize, and was very disappointed, after walking in the shopping area  at the pier went outside the gates and was uncomfortable walking there and turned around and went back on board. there needs to be a way visit a better part of the city when you disembark a boat. there are some ports that are very nice and some not, this is a not.

my opinion

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 06, 2014

room clean, food fair, Belize city poor, Cosumel Fair, Music on deck to loud, activities for younger people only.  Have enjoyed other Royal Carribean cruises much better.  Excursions were not suited for older people.

Nice but not excellent

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 01, 2014

The Liberty of the Seas staff were excellent.  However, ports of call were mediocre at best.  Labadee is a private island that offers nothing but another chance to purchase items brought ashore from the ship.  Beach is very rocky and activities are very high priced.  We walked about for the exercise and returned to the ship for a decent lunch.

The ice show was excellent.  However, evening entertainment was average.  Another juggler....  and the "Saturday Night Fever" show was so loud that it hurt the ears.  Great dancing, but a very slow plot broadcast at a high decibel level.

We have cruised with Royal Carib before and find them superior to Carnival.  However, I would not recommend this cruise to Labadee and Ocho Rios.  There are other ports of call where one can escape from the Ship company shops and experience the local vendors and cuisine.

Room service breakfast on days in port is the way to go. The buffet is packed with everyone wanting to get off the ship early.
