5 Day Western Caribbean

Sail Date: March 01, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Great ship\, staff. Although the beach at Haiti was private\, and lovely\, felt pressure from the employees on site to tip all the time. Shouldn't that be included in their wages and not the responsibility of the passengers to pay? Labadee? OK as long as you don't leave the dock area. This will be my last Western Caribbean Cruise. Alaska\, Europe\, Eastern Caribbean - here we come!

Pros: No internet\, beautiful weather. Ship was really nice. Service from dining staff absolutely top-notch. Opportunity to meet the crew. Promanade Cafe for free water/coffee/snacks. Shows were really well done. Haiti beach lovely.

Cons: Labadee port - 2nd time to Jamaica and won't be back. Constant

Recommends Liberty of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
Very nice. Of my three cruises this was the nicest ship so far. Loved the central area / shops / food venues all in one area and separate from the pool areas. Although there were thousands on the ship at times we felt like there was nobody else on board. It's that big. Never felt crowded except when going ashore\, and even then it flowed smoothly.
Food and Dining
Loved my-time dining\, the availability of other food options\, the dining staff was amazing. Quality of food? Not as high as I expected. I believe it was better on our Carnival cruise last year.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room. As expected. Love that there were three chairs on the balcony and a sliding door that we could leave open as we slept to feel the warm ocean breezes and hear the water below.
Service and Staff
Absolutely outstanding. There were maybe 1-2 that were not so great but absolutely by far the service was amazing. Only to be greeted by poor U.S. customer service once we got to the airport. They could take a lesson from RC's staff on customer service.
If one doesn't gamble\, shop\, sit at the pool\, or go to the spa there wasn't much to do on the ship. We enjoyed dining\, walking the decks\, and reading on our private balcony.
