Review SummaryThe Liberty of the Seas is an extraordinary ship. The different designs and the myriad of details devoted to making places feel different, and appropriate, for separate venues was wonderful to experience. The staff was amazing, friendly, helpful and made things fun. When you think of all of the food that has to be prepared every day, it was astonishing to eat it and have the tastes explode into your mouth; no bland or tasteless items at all. The presentation of these food items was well done also.
We sailed to San Juan for our first day and were only on the island a short time. This scheduling was most unfortunate because since we had been to the island before we know what a wonderful place it is and would have like to explore it once again, but time did not permit. However, we were on the ship's island Labadee for a whole day. I know the ship likes to control lots of money going into its own coffers, but that choice is not right. People want to experience different cultures and the cruise organization should take this into account more when scheduling visits to islands.
Overall we enjoyed ourselves.

Pros: Design of ship was extraordinary from macro to micro spaces allowing for different venues.
Cons: Too much time on your island and not enough time in actual countries [e.g. San Juan]; no venues to listen to music, have a cocktail and dance for non-smokers, entertainment was mediocre except for skating.
