Beyond Disappointed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2015

It has taken me two weeks to write this review because I needed to calm down and send a factual review and not an emotional review.

 

So, let me start with the positives- there are 3

The kids pool area was amazing and better than the Explorer of the Seas The process for getting off the boat for suite guests was great with the new terminal The wait staff was fantastic in the dining hall at night

 

Now, let me list the negatives:

We get a suite because we like to have the special area at the pool designed for the concierge level.  Imagine my disappointment that on this ship it is in a totally different place with NO amenities, no drink service, not even close to a bar and very far from the pool.  It was also CLOSED three of the 5 days without even towels on the chairs… did you read that, THREE out of FIVE days!   The suites are MUCH smaller even though it showed the layout of the same suite we had last year on Liberty of the Seas There is no longer a wine package, so we had to buy a separate beverage package and because of this we really didn’t need the concierge level because we already had unlimited drinks The room attendant didn’t leave towel animals on two different nights, not sure if you have kids but try traveling with a 5 yr old whose highlight is… what animal will be in the room tonight So… due to the fact that we had to buy a separate beverage package (rendering the free drinks at the lounge every night useless) , there were NO amenities at the pool area (when it was even opened) and that the room was smaller by far- we could have said a few thousand dollars and gotten interior rooms.  There was absolutely NO benefit to staying in a suite on this boat.

I am beyond disappointed and will be taking my cruise with a different cruise line next year.

 

And your Customer Service Rep still owes me an answer as to why we never received our BJS gift card for LAST years cruise!  That's right, last years.  She said in March she would call back, I've left two messages and sent an email and still no response.

 

Seriously disappointed!

Great Experience as a first time cruiser!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2015

This is our first time cruising on RCL. We booked the trip from NJ to Bermuda a while ago. Since my family and I have never been on cruise before, we did not know what to expect. We were nervous and worried about getting sea sick and all, but everything was fine. We had a great trip.Our boarding took a while in Cape Liberty because we didn't do  the online registration 3 days prior to the cruise. Online boarding was not available the day before the cruise. I recommend every one to do the online registration 3 days before to save some time at the port.

Being in the cruise ship was an amazing experience. There was so much to do in the ship for all age groups. We enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi and other activities in the ship. Our on the shore excursions in Bermuda were good due to the good weather.

The food was also excellent! Liked the food in Windjammer cafe better than Botticelli dining room.

Overall a great vacation and memorable experience!Happy

Wonderful cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 04, 2015

I usually book cruises myself but this time I went through CruisesOnly and not only did I get onboard spending money, but I also got a wonderful upgrade to a room with an ocean view.  It was awesome!  The cruise itself was great.  The crew were very nice and helpful, the shows were wonderful and the food was yummy! I would definitely use CruisesOnly again and Royal Caribbean.  This was my 5th cruise with them.

Had a wonderful time!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 04, 2015

Great cruise experience.  Loved the food in the main dining hall.  We always found something there to enjoy...and delicious desserts as well.  Ample space in the stateroom, although a little more drawer space would have been appreciated.  Fortunately, able to store luggage under bed which freed-up plenty of space in the closet.  Wish there were more options on the television.  Very few channels...duplicates...and no selection of movies.  Would have been happy to be able to select movies even if there was a small charge.  Also, could not change TV inputs from the defaults so unable to view material on laptop via HDMI.  Not a big deal, but a slight bummer.  Wonderful shows in the Platinum Theatre.  Also, some good bands in the various venues around the ship.  Enjoyed food in the Windjammer...and really liked that we could order a special-made omelet.  Ample selection of meats, vegetables, fruit, desserts, and beverages.

This is a great ship. My wife is disabled and the ship was easy to get around except for the casino very close between slots. Our room {ADA| was big enough to turn her chair around in and not hit anything. The food was good.    Service was great Room stewart was an 11 over and above W ait staff was good but not great a 9 Pool area and activities were good I liked the flowrider.Shows were better than most other cruises and cruise lines

Excellent!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Liberty of the Seas | Sail Date: May 30, 2015

5 days cruise to Bermuda, excellent family experience.  Two different families of three, we had a very good time.  Good food, good service, good entertainment, great shows (Saturday Night Fever and Encore Ice Spectacular were the best), good music. The convenience of not having to take a plane because we are from the New Jersey area is what made us decide to sail out of Cape Liberty port in New Jersey.  Starting with the service with United Cruises to book our vacation until the last day on the cruise,no complaints, no regrets!!! I definitely recommend Royal Caribbean.

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.
