36 days to sail away...


Okay, so I'm a newbie; never been on a cruise before...

I've read so many reviews, posts, blogs etc that I'm a little confused on an issue.

I'm boarding Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas in 36 days. Many people have mentioned asking your cabin steward for anything specific to your needs prior to boarding, ie: asking that the beds be separated. I cannot figure out how to get a message to the steward. Any advice or insight?

Call the line, they'll do it in advance. if for some reason they don't, call housekeeping or guest services...they'll have it done ASA you get on onboard. you'll meet him ist day anyway...

Thanks! Happy

I have not sailed RC in years. But I believe you can go into your account online and fill in some of your preferences. For example, beds separate or together, if you want robes in your cabin. But like Yankee said you will meet him/her the first day. Just ask they will take care of it if it is possible.

Welcome aboard and have a great cruise!

Welcome to cruising! If your beds aren't how you want them when you get there, your cabin steward shouldn't be too far away. If you need extra pillows, blankets, hangers, etc. they can get them for you. If you want ice in your cabin every day, be sure to let him/her know.

Just bear in mind, embarkation day is....fun....be patient...all hands are hauling luggage etc. and TIPPING YOUR STEWARD....well...do I have to say it? That person can make or break your cruise all by himself. I shake his hand the first time we meet, and theres something in it. we beat the topic up pretty good awhile back. mebbe its time to revisit it.

Or not. :) Make sure you tip the baggage handlers, if you want to see your bags anytime soon. We tip our steward at the end of the cruise and usually get really good service.

We also tip room stewards at the end of the cruise, and always tip the baggage handlers outside. Please also remember to tip any delivery of room service that you have. Hope you enjoy your cruise - the first is the most memorable for sure. Happy

Thanks everyone for the great advice!

Looking forward to embarkation day!

Awe, embarkation day. Do yourself a favor and pack a little bit of extra patience. It can be a little trying at times. Everyone is excited to get on the ship and start their vacation. Sometimes manors fly out the front door, most of the time it all goes well. Enjoy!


Cruise and learn as you go. Do not sweat the line ups. Enjoy!!!
