The ship is HUGE! The activites were great including ice skating, live performances, movies, boogie boarding & surfing via FLOWRIDER, rock climbing, ping pong, miniature golf, basket ball, volley ball, dodge ball, and more. The shopping stores could be much better in quality of products and variety. The quality of the food for the general dining (buffet) was not very good; sub-par. The same can be said in the formal dining room, and the service was decent. They need to be refined some more in their service. The specialty dining restaurant was very average in quality and above average in pricing! The port of calls to Cococay, Bahamas and Falmouth, Jamaica were not the most memorable. Do Not Do the Dunn's River Fall!!! It's a man-made "waterfall." I was expecting something natural and beautiful, but it's ALL man-made using cement bags to build the pools and scale the walls. It's basically a public park ($20 admission fee) that the excursion planners over-charge! We were rushed on the zip line, but it was still a fun ride. They tell you not to buy from the vendors at the park (Dunn's River Fall) because they are not owned by Royal Caribbean, but independent vendors. The shops and vendors at the port are owned by RCI. You can do the excursions on your own for a lot less money, but you have to book them independently from the cruise line. Overall the cruise has great activities, but the quality of food was lacking. Liberty of the Sea holds 5000 passengers (i believe), but only 4200 were present and so with that quantity of passengers, the food quality would be difficult to maintain.

Food and Dining

Quality and authenticity were seriously lacking; even in the specialty dining. The price of the specialty dining was over priced for average quality.

It's ok to tour the island, but don't fall for Dunn's River Fall which is a man made water fall in a public park.

Stay on the ship! There is nothing to see on this island unless you just want to lay on the unkept beach.
Don't Miss: Don't miss staying on the ship during this port stop.

Pros: Onboard Activities

Cons: Quality and Variety of Food
