Sandy's and Stan's cruise

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

Prior to the cruise we had 6 weeks of misery trying to get shore excursions booked.  Every time we

called Royal Caribbean consultants they would make us tell them which excursions we wanted and then

at the end they would tell us that their computers were being updated.  After being on the phone for 30

minutes each time.

Finally we asked our agent to do it and she was able to get all the excursions except the first day. We don't understand how they could be full if it was unable to be booked.  We had to take a second choice

for our first excursion. The second day in France was cancelled due to a ferry strike. We were diassappointed about France.

Ports to far from major attractions

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Sep 14, 2014

Ship experience was great. Unfortunately, the ports are to far from the major cities. It was a two hour bus ride to visit Florence, only three hours to tour and then a two hour bus ride back to the ship. Same situation with Rome.

Beautiful ship----great itinerary

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Aug 31, 2014

I would recommend this ship and cruise  to anyone who wants a glimpse of Spain, France, and Italy. The LOS is beautiful---very clean, lots to do and has a great promenade. We had a junior suite and woke up to beautiful scenery each day! The Staff was great!!!

I give it 4.5 stars instead of 5 because of the food. The dining room was beautiful and there were other choices of where to eat ....but the "quality" of the food was not what I expected. Not to say that all the food was average.....but much of it was just ok. One complaint I had was that they put mayo on all the sandwiches in the snack areas. We went to the Windjammer, but they did not have the same variety of deli meats. We asked if we could have the sandwiches without mayo and they said they come that way. Also, we went to the dining room for breakfast and they admitted the  eggs were powdered.

I will continue to check out RCI as my first choice for cruising but I think for the price of the  European cruises, there should be more attention paid to the quality and taste of the food.

Staff and itinerary

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Sep 28, 2014

The staff was excellent and the itinerary was exactly what we wanted.  However, the dining room had a group of about 40 who were loud and rowdyand disturbed our dinner to the point we could not carry on a conversation.  They were also banging our chairs as they ran around.

The only excursion we took with RC was a disappointment.  However, the two excursions we took with Shore excursions group were excellent!

Ok Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Aug 17, 2014

Overall it was a good cruise.  Unfortunately, I felt the staff was not all that helpful or welcoming, they did not seem enthusiastic about another cruise and new guest.  The dinning staff made up for the rest, they were exceptional.

Third Mate

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.

The salad at the Cafe on the Prominade was great. Fabulous amaretto cookies at Sorrento's.
