Overall we enjoyed our first cruise experience.  The service was excellent and the food was very good.  The kids program was amazing.  We will definitely cruise again.

Short and sweet

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 22, 2015

This was the shortest cruise (only 5 days) we've ever been on but it was still great.  The ship, crew, service, food, entertainment, excursions and all else were superb.  I also like the convenience of the cruise terminal being so close to FLL airport.  The Cruise Director (Dru), however, talked too fast and was not as funny as other Cruise Directors we've known.  Everything else was 5 star.

Great time, other than two issues everyone should be aware of

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 22, 2015

The cruise ship was amazing.  It was very clean and the food was very good.  The activity was constant and all the staff were extremely nice.  Royal Caribbean has a lot of positives, compared to Carnival.  We have cruised with Carnival 10 times but wanted to try Royal Caribbean so this was our first cruise with them.  However, I was terribly disappointed in two issues that I experienced on Royal Caribbean.  First, on two separate occasions while on the same cruise, I was told that I had to leave the adult pool area for a private function.  Royal Caribbean literally made the business decision to close off a high traffic area for a private party, which I'm sure they were paid well for doing it.  I was made to feel as if I was not as important as some of the other guests.  This was not for repeat cruisers to have a party.  This was for a group of people that paid to rent this section for a period of time.  Being that I paid for the usage of the ship, I felt as if I wasn't important to Royal Caribbean at that moment.  The greed of Royal Caribbean to make that decision was a bad business decision, in my opinion.  Second, I had my waitor ask me to wait a moment before leaving the supper table so he could have a discussion with my family.  This happened two days prior to the end of the cruise.  He told my family that the tips we paid up front, he only got a small piece of.  He explained that it was important for us to understand that he hoped to get additional tips from his tables, as he depended on that to make a good pay week.  We listened, of course, in awkwardness and left when he had finished talking about it.  The last night of the cruise, my family had shaken his hand and thanked him for all he had done and were walking out of the dining hall.  He followed me to the exit and stopped me and told me that if I was going to leave him something extra, to not put it in the envelope in the room because he would never get it.  Once again, I was put into this awkward conversation with this man.  He explained that an envelope was left in my room for me to put extra tip money in but that he would never get it so for me to simply give him what I wanted to give him into his hand.  I asked him how long he would be there and he said until 11:00 pm so I left.  It was totally inappropriate and unprofessional for him to put me into this awkward position twice while on my cruise with my family.  I just scheduled my next cruise for October and I decided, because of these issues, to go back to Carnival for my cruise.  Royal Caribbean is a great company, I'm sure.  However, I was left with the feeling of not being important to Royal Caribbean unless I flaunted money.

Nice time away

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 14, 2015

My husband and I went for a short getaway for our anniversary so it was just fine.  The food was "ok" and the entertainment was lacking . . . . . . . but the crew explained it was all new material that they had just learned.  Never seemed to be enough deck chairs but the pools are nice and the ship is clean.    Went to the Wet Lizard in Belize for lunch and the Belize Sampler Plate was wonderful and had great service.

long lines & not enough towels

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2015

We had a great time on our cruise this spring break!

The food, service, staff, facilities, entertainment >> top!

There are only two things we can complain about:

1. are the long lines to board & disembark. It took us over 2 hours both ways. That is too long, especially with children & elderly passengers.

2. when disembarking on Labadee, there were NO towels. After waiting in a corridor on level 2 for almost 30 minutes, we left without any. That should not happen!

THANKS for everything else! The Babor family

nice ship, good service, but lacking in food selection

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2015

After many cruises, this one was lacking in the food area.   I felt like they tried to be too far out of the box, instead of just offering good selection of just good food.  Sure, you want to have a few selections of things you wouldn't necessarily get back home, even a few exotic selections.  But they still need to offer some good ol' favorites as well.   our stateroom attendant was excellent, and our wait staff was attentive. The shows were good, but I thought they could have planned a few more activities during the day poolside.

Liberty 3/9/15

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2015

The waiter at table 646, Shewish (spelling incorrect) and his assistant, Riva were wonderful would give them excellent.  He took his time every evening, learned each quest name and delivered the food properly.

The ship was great, clean and although there were many people it didn't seem that crowded.  It was even spring break and really didn't know they were there.

The ice show was excellent

Fun Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2015

This was a fun cruise. The staff was great. The boat was great. The entertainment top-notch. Ocho Rios was a great port. Labadee not so much; it is owned by the cruise line and unless you want to drink a lot and sit on the beach it's pretty boring. Even so, this is a good cruise to take.

Good experience for a first time cruiser

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 05, 2015

Overall, I'd say that my wife and I enjoyed our cruise.  We had heard that service on a cruise ship is given as though you are a king and queen, but I can't exactly say we felt that way.  Some of the staff on the cruise seemed too busy to be friendly to you, while others, particularly the cleaning staff in our case, seemed to be welcoming and servant-hearted.  The nightly dinner food was good, but by no means extraordinary.  I ordered several dishes that I felt came out sub-par, such as the strip steak.  Some others were quite good, such as the beef tenderloin and roast duck. I'm by no means a picky eater though, and it didn't really diminish our cruise experience if I didn't like something. 

It was over spring break for some Florida universities so the pools were really crowded sometimes.  I would really recommend that people don't cruise in March if large drunken crowds of college students aren't your thing. Or if you are traveling with your kids and don't want them to see tons of people with really skimpy "clothes" on.

We only made one stop which was Cozumel, and it was by far the highlight of the trip.  I recommend people cruise to multiple ports when possible.  I suppose I'm more into the destinations than the cruise itself.  Anyway, it was fun despite some minor things and I would probably cruise Royal Caribbean again - though not during the same time of year.

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.
