Great Entertainment, not so great service

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2015

The day of debarkation for the ports of call were chaotic and unorganized. No one knew what they were doing.  To make matters worse, some people on our EXACT same excursion from the same Ship (we were the only ship docked) paid less for the SAME EXACT excursion.  This bothered me and quite a few other guests aboard the vessel.  We were jammed into a line, very confused and while waiting for directions, began to talk and compare tickets.  Some people on our line did not even have the same ticket description or time as ours.  Then to find out they paid much less 1/3 less than we had for the same experience.  I really don't think I will cruise again with Royal Caribbean.  I felt ripped off with my experience to say the least.  We cruise every year and our group gets larger and larger.  I would not allow my entire family to be duped as I was on Royal Caribbean.  The entertainment aboard The Liberty of The Seas was excellent The cruise Director and staff were amazing and made sure everyone attending the shows had a wonderful time.  The food above The Liberty of The Seas was not good at all with the exception of the Rembrandt Dining Room.  The dining room staff went above and beyond their duties to ensure guest satisfaction.  The staff at the excursion desk were rude and unhelpful.  They should be more knowledgeable on what they are offering.  The only thing that saved me from being miserable were the shows and entertainment staff and the dining room staff.  Great Job!

Great Vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2015

I just returned from a 5 day vacation on the Liberty of the Seas and I will sum of my vacation with one word "wonderful". From the start to the finish of the cruise my family were recently impressed with the service, the staff, the food and the amenities of the ship. We were so impressed that we already booked our next cruise for next year. 

We were a little worried that my kids (ages 10 and 8) would be disappointed with the cruise since they have only been on Disney cruises. To my surprise - the rock climbing wall, the flow rider, the various shows and activities in the Adventure Club kept my more than busy and occupied. We look forward to our next cruise on Royal Caribbean.

HappyI was pleased with my cruise.

Stateroom  service was the absolute best.

 Harry, was who took care of our stateroom service, he was right there to make sure we were very pleased every day, our stateroom service was very excellent and on point.

food was not as good as when we have cruised before, seemed better when we were on the jewel of the sea back in 2012 and 2010.

not for anyone with a disability

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2015

The friend I travelled with has some mobility issues.  She uses a cane to walk most places.  When we got to the terminal there was at least an hour spent waiting to check in.  By the time we got to the window for our boarding cards, my friend needed to sit down for a few minutes to rest her knee.  To board we were required to walk up a ramp that went from Deck 1 to Deck 4.  This was difficult for me but for her was torturous.  I realize now that we probably could have asked for a wheelchair for  her, but by the time one was offered, she had already reached deck four.  This stressed her so much that she was unable to go to dinner.   Later in the cruise she went to the spa for a massage and tripped on the transom as she was leaving, breaking her elbow!  She received good care at the medical office, and we were able to leave with her in a wheelchair.  There was no  one to help with her luggage so my daughter and granddaughter helped with that.  This was not a great cruise for seniors, but we knew that going in, and were there mainly to be with my granddaughter and daughter.  One more negative was the IT situation.  It was like using dial-up service or worse.  The machine I was using to get my boarding passl  wouldn't type and i or a t.  Also, no staff on site to help navigate.  The woman I sat next to said "Honey, you're on your own and God help you."  I bought a days service so that I could alert my family to the fact that we needed accommodations for my friend, and I was barely able to get one e-mail sent.

We Are Hookef!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 02, 2015

Reliving it each day. Liberty of the Seas has everything you need. Plenty of deck chairs. Plenty to do. Our cruise was totally booked during spring break, but lines and congestion was never too much on the ship. Love the free ice cream on deck. Tim, the cruise director is perfect! Everything is well laid out. Hardly anyone goes to the bow if you want serenity and beautiful view. Our waiters were so attentive and remembered who we were and what we drank after one meal. Wish Royal gave you at least one lobster meal and Johnny Rockets was included, but the varying menu was great and plenty to choose on the all day buffet. Was not really impressed by Johnny Rockets to pay again. Thought they used the outside screen for a nightly movie, but it was fun to watch the NCAA finals. Cozumel is nothing special itself. BUT, we highly recommend booking the shore excursion through Cozumelbuggy.com. A wonderful 5 hour tour all around the Island in self driven nights, a beach stop, a stop in the original town with a tequila and Mayan food tasting, snorkeling along the coast, and an ending Mexican buffet at Hotel Cozumel. The tour guides are exactly as reviewed - attentive, funny, and professional. We are in a cruise withdrawel!!!

Had a great time.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

Had a great time on this cruise. I wish they stayed in the ports a little longer. The food and people were great. The water was broken for several hours while we were in Cozumel. I think the bars on the cruise closed too early.

Royal Caribbean Cruise That's Fun and Relaxing!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

We boarded the Liberty of the Seas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.   Staff and service was excellent.  It was clean.  Tons of things to do from children to teens.   Surfing, ice skating, 3D movies, ping pong, putt putt, board games, arcades.   Adult portion includes:  Spa, adult pool/Jacuzzis, gym, track, bars, shows, and more.  We purchased an excursion on the internet for zip lining in Belize because the Royal Caribbean excursion did not offer one for a child that was nine years old.   We found out that we needed a 'tender'/ticket for a boat ride to Belize.   On day #2 at sea, my husband had to be in line by 8 a.m. (hour prior to tickets being handed out) to make sure that we received one.   We received the tender.  If you take a Royal Caribbean excursion, you do not need to do this.  It was a learning experience.   Zip lining in the jungle in Belize was a lot of fun.   Cozumel excursion was fun.   We did lose an hour due to the excursion before us having a problem, but we enjoyed snorkeling and the afternoon on the beach.  One thing we weren't aware of was a $12 gratuity fee per person/per day that we did not budget.  (It would have been nice to have that in large print since there were four of us.)   Other than that, our room attendant, Leonardo, was fantastic.  Crew/staff were very nice and constantly working.   The Windjammer buffet was fantastic.   The Michelangelo dining room was fair.

Good first Time experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2015

For the most part the this was a good first time experience for me. It did seem as we got closer to the end the staff became lazy with room service and the person who was supposed to keep our room up wasn't anywhere to be found most of the time.

You should plan ahead where to go before arriving on every port. Some are easily accessible through local trains & that will save you money.

The ice show is great and very popular. It should be booked in advance so as to get a seat.
