October 2013 - Liberty of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean
This was our first cruise and although the Liberty of the seas was beautiful we found the whole experience not as expected. For gold card holders with a suite we expected a lot more than we got, there was a lack of information for first time cruisers and most of the information we obtained was from other passengers that had cruised before or our housemaid who I have to say was superb. The gratuities added on to each bill was a bit much we thought and even in the Spa where I personally had a lot of treatment, one gratuity was over $400 for a particular treatment which I thought was quite a lot as I had also tipped all the staff quite generously. Would we cruise with Royal Carribean again, probably not, a very exspensive vacation with not a lot of good times to remember.
