March 2015 - 5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Liberty of the Seas
We boarded the Liberty of the Seas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Staff and service was excellent. It was clean. Tons of things to do from children to teens. Surfing, ice skating, 3D movies, ping pong, putt putt, board games, arcades. Adult portion includes: Spa, adult pool/Jacuzzis, gym, track, bars, shows, and more. We purchased an excursion on the internet for zip lining in Belize because the Royal Caribbean excursion did not offer one for a child that was nine years old. We found out that we needed a 'tender'/ticket for a boat ride to Belize. On day #2 at sea, my husband had to be in line by 8 a.m. (hour prior to tickets being handed out) to make sure that we received one. We received the tender. If you take a Royal Caribbean excursion, you do not need to do this. It was a learning experience. Zip lining in the jungle in Belize was a lot of fun. Cozumel excursion was fun. We did lose an hour due to the excursion before us having a problem, but we enjoyed snorkeling and the afternoon on the beach. One thing we weren't aware of was a $12 gratuity fee per person/per day that we did not budget. (It would have been nice to have that in large print since there were four of us.) Other than that, our room attendant, Leonardo, was fantastic. Crew/staff were very nice and constantly working. The Windjammer buffet was fantastic. The Michelangelo dining room was fair.
