We ate at the main dining room the first night, it was like they had never served that many people before. Food was good, service staff was overwhelmed.
150 Central Park was a very good dinner. Wonderland is an experience worth doing. It was Excellent.
I wish I could be positive about Jamie Olivers. Cold food, awful service, the waiter was more interested in serving large tables for more $$$, desert was served with ice tea spoons instead of forks. When I complained to the manager he said; "That calls for more desert!!" We stormed out.
Windjammer was okay but always crowded.
Our room stewardess was excellent. Jocelyn Espartero. We had an aqua suite on the 14th floor.
Weather was bad the first five days but that wasn't anyone's fault.
Our room and balcony was unbelieveable. I'd go again in a heartbeat.
The destinations were the PLUS of the cruise. Of all the RCCL ships the food on Adventure has been the weakest.
Service A++; Other weakness problems will be fixed with the upcoming dry-dock.
Great food, great staff, overall excellent time. Everything was very organized and well thought out. The food in the Wind Jammer and dining hall was fantastic and the kids activities were also great.
We sailed the Independence of the Seas out of New Orleans and loved the ship. Since Royal Caribbean removed all of their ships out of the best cruise port we were forced to go to Galveston for another taste of the Freedom Class ship.
We liked Independence but after sailing Liberty we love it more. We don't care for the Western Caribbean Cruises but driving instead of flying made the itinerary easier to swallow.
The ship was recently out of dry dock. The food was much better than Independence. The Windjammer was working very hard to try new items making big improvements.
The weather was windy so a lot of deck events were cancelled (slides, etc) still weather was good enough for Grand Cayman.
Cruise Director was great, The shows were good too. Lounge entertainment could be improved but the lounge trivia events packed them in.
We are returning with family members in a couple of months...
Embarkation: We arrived early and went straight to the counter to process our paperwork and take our photos. This took less than 10 minutes. We then went to the lounge to wait for customs to clear the ship. Due to a problem with the gangway we were delayed in boarding until noon. Our luggage was at our stateroom within 30 minutes of the staterooms being available.
Cruise: The ship was gorgeous and very clean. We never had to hunt for anything we needed. The bar crewmembers were exceptional, especially in the Schooner Lounge. The Windjammer was always very busy during the prime dining times, so we always tried to adjust our schedule to arrive at slack times. We enjoyed St. Kitts the most, just casual shopping, a casino, and fun little tiki bars along the shopping area. All our stops didn't require tenders which was a plus. Most people don't go on a cruise to watch TV but if you want to, it's the same old Royal Caribbean programming. If you see something you do want to watch, it isn't in English. Dining rooms were gorgeous and if there was a problem it was handled quickly and with a smile. The food was good and you could always find something to eat.
Disembarkation: The fastest seen to date. We started at 8:30am and were in a cab by 9:10am.
We loved the ship, destinations, and the crew. Hats off to the hard working crew.
We chose this cruise because it will be one of the last Royal Caribbean vacations out of the beautiful city of New Orleans. The Port, Embarkation events, and parking was a wonderful experience. Tampa should take notes.
The ship and its crew did all they could to insure a safe and wonderful voyage.
Key West and Nassau were great destinations, and the early arrival at Key West was wonderful.
We couldn't have enjoyed the trip more....
