When I say our Honeymoon was "made possible" by CruiseCritic, I mean from beginning to end CruiseCritic was there for us and surpassed our expectations for our Honeymoon in every way! From selecting our cruise to booking shore excursions ...
We loved the Liberty of the Sea's ship. Did not see any of the shows. Ate mostly at Windjammer--a lot of delicious choices.
Took a car service to the ship from the airport. Check-in was quick!
Provence, France--Did the ship tour ...
We arrived in Barcelona the day prior which allowed us to take time and enjoy the city.
The embarkation went fairly smooth. We arrived around 2 pm and waited about 30 - 40 minutes in line. Once through we went to have lunch. It was ...
Liberty of the Seas 9/22/12-9/29/12
A little about us. It was my husband Jerry (48) and my (49) 2nd anniversary cruise. It has always been my dream to cruise the Mediterranean and especially see Rome. My wonderful husband made this ...
We really enjoyed our first cruise. We are a married couple in our early thirties and we're not really interested in "lie on a beach" type holidays. To make it easier, I'll break this review into categories.
Barcelona: H10 Universitat ...
Liberty was an interesting ship. Everything felt clean, new, modern but somehow cheap as well. I didn't get a palpable sense of luxury here. Food options were disappointing. The Windjammer and Jade buffets were abysmally bad. Some of the ...
Ship - Plenty of room for everyone. Very clean and lots to do. The swimming pools were cold so we enjoyed the hot tubs.
Food - Food is Windjammer was mediocre. Food in dining room was really good. Fish and shrimp dinners were good. ...
We went on Liberty of the seas on Mediterranean cruise round trip from Barcelona on Sept 01; 2012.Liberty of the seas is a beautiful ship with a lot of different things to do for everyone. The promenade is wonderful with a lot of different ...
The Good, The Bad, The Ports and the Ugly of inter-porting on Liberty Of The Seas
We chose to book this ship departing from Toulon instead of Barcelona based purely on price and cabin availability.
Junior Suite's were ...
Our tour started in Amman, Jordan and we flew into Barcelona two days earlier on Royal Jordanian. We were 12 people, mostly seniors, but a three forty and under. Barcelona is a great starting point, and the boarding process was so ...
We loved this trip. Liberty of the Seas is a beautiful boat. Rarely felt crowded and there was lots to do. We had an oceanview cabin (had booked an interior stateroom) but given free upgrade. We thought it was fine - plenty space etc.
This was our second time on a RCI Freedom class ship and once again the experience was exceptional. The ship is beautiful and there's plenty to do.
We set sail from Barcelona and the embarkation was flawless. Our luggage ...
My wife and I cruised on Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas August 25th.
I'll say up front that this was a great vacation. All the people we dealt with were magnificent and the ship is wonderful.
We flew into Barcelona one day early ...
After convincing my wife to take a cruise I read lots of reviews on this and other sites and was really unsure what to expect. Some where good some where really bad but I have always been one for making my own decisions. We got a flight ...
Got a great deal for two interior adjacent cabins for myself, my wife and two kids aged 10 and 12.
I'll start with the lowlight first as it will serve as a warning to other parents with young kids. My son broke his arm on the cruise ...
The liberty is clean friendly safe and the service was so wonderful. Facilities from the windjammer and main beautiful restaurant were brilliant. Lots of choice in windjammer for breakfast English bacon sausage baked beans eggs freshly ...
We were traveling with our 4 children and two other families, one with 4 children and one with two. We were three couples in our early 40s to early 50s. The children ranged in age from 8 to 16. We spent one night in Barcelona pre-cruise ...
Just home from a wonderful first cruise with Royal Caribbean on Liberty of the Seas. From the moment we arrived on board we were treated like royalty it was unreal. Having never cruised before we were unsure what to expect. We travelled ...
The good: The cabins were lovely. We had two junior suites that were gigantic. The kids had interior cabins across from us, which were small, but they didn't care. Our cabin steward kept everything perfect throughout our stay. We asked for ...
We are a family of 4 - my wife and I, our 12 yr. old son, and his grandmother. This was our 5th but first non-Disney cruise. We therefore found ourselves constantly comparing RCL to Disney and are happy to report that RCL compared ...
Liberty is a lovely Ship in very good condition - this was the 3rd time we had sailed on her and standards were exactly what we expected - very good.
Travel to Barcelona from Scotland was a disaster - RCI booked the 4 of us onto KLM ...
Our first time cruise had been researched three months prior to our departure and I felt that a first time cruise perspective may be more interesting rather than the repeat cruiser who have expectations that make me wonder if they serve ...
This was our fifth RCI cruise, although the first in quite a while (we still call it RCCL, so that may give you an idea). It was also our first cruise on a "mega" ship. The largest ship we had previously sailed on was the old Sovereign of ...
This was one of the best family vacations I have taken. When you get on the Ship, ensure you-
1) Take in ALL the shows (see more on this below)
2) Get off at ALL the ports (see Ports review below and also in Ports Critic)
3) Eat at ALL ...
This was our third RCI cruise, the first in the Med and we have cruised many times on other lines in the Caribbean, Alaska and western Mexico. I think RCI gives a good value and will probably cruise with them in the future, although the ...
