Review summary

Great time,great newer ship. I personally would not recommend a ship bigger than the quantum class. I think it is big enough and has activities to do for all ages and not so many people where you are bumping elbows and fighting for elevators every time you are trying to go to another floor. Would recommend this to any one who loves cruising and wants to try a new type of ship. One of the best parts of the ship is the solarium. Best solarium i have been in! It is absolutely gorgeous, get there early and stay the day! it is worth it.

Liket he new Cape Liberty set up much better than the old. Easy to get in and checked in, also a nice area for suite guests.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All the food was delicious, there was just on restaurant that had be thrown and that was wonderland. It was definitely a unique experience but some weird options. Definitely too much truffle oil on everything for me. But the beef and desserts were exceptional. Chops is always a favorite. The short ribs.....mmmm the best!!! The windjammer was unlike any other Royal Caribbean ship i have been on prior. So many options and more high end i felt than on other ships for example they hade soft shell crabs! That made my night one evening.

" you can still smell the fresh paint!"- titanic haha there was nothing out of place nothing broken, never any garbage or dishes lying around. beautiful.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
this cabin was everything you could imagine and more...looks like it should be in a penthouse in new york city or miami. three different balconies, hot tubs, two separate bathrooms and second bedroom that connects to its out balcony. it was all a cruiser could dream of when it comes to having space ocean views and luxury. i have a video on youtube if anyone is interested.I hope these pictures do it some justice, it was just a surreal way to vacation for 12 days. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ol2qGtkLF4&frags=pl%2Cwn

Ship tip

if you see in the compass the time for bumper cars arrive earlier than that time or the line is usually wrapped around. same with the flowrider. give the bionic bar a try its a fun different experience! sometimes there is a wait but if u go during a show or dinners there should not be any real wait time.

Ports of call

Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey

5 out of 5
fast and easy and enjoy the suite area.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
by far my favorite royal caribbean private island. it is not too commercialized at all i think it has just the right amount of activities and things for kids and family to make everyone enjoy the day. my tip if you can get a cabana. they are lovely.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

3 out of 5
been to san juan a few times just not one of my favorite spots. i usually get out and collect anything from cvs that i might have forgot to get, grab a drink at señor frogs and get back on the ship. i have heard puerto rico has beautiful beaches but they seem to be far away from the san juan area.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
great port!! short ferry ride to the main strip of the island have some good shopping and excellent food!!! it is very easy to get a beach chair,umbrella and bucket of beers and enjoy the day with a view of the ship.

Fort-De-France, Martinique

1 out of 5
was not fond of this port. it was dirty and very expensive, heard people were robbed going out so stayed n the ship most of day besides going for a quick walk outside to view ship.

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
never have i felt such powder like sand. gorgeous beaches and wildlife when swimming. sea turtles ship wrecks, plane wrecks its a great port for any age

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
another great stop. i would recommend going to mariott. you can by a day pass and enjoy the entire facility. the pools were clean and warm and a short walk from the beach. it is first come first serve to the cabanas they have set up with chairs and tables. it was a beautiful beach with views of the big green st kitts mountains .

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
easy to get luggage and off the ship to get a ride that is waiting to pick you up... just stinks to go home :)
