Ship Facts: Liberty of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Liberty of the Seas Deck Plans
Not so great...
We sailed on March 31st which was our second cruise. The first one we did was on the Navigator and even we had just an inside cabin we did like it better. It was a bit smaller ship but it was cleaner and felt less crowded. Liberty although was just recently updated, still felt like it is almost due for another dry dock...

Embarkation was excellent. We were recognized as repeating cruisers and they put us in a special line so we skipped surprisingly long line already around 1 pm. It is always nice to have carry on luggage so we changed quickly and hit the pool deck. After that just a typical cruise like we learned it from the first time. We were familiar with almost everything but still not bored. New screens throughout the ship helped a lot navigating activities. Ninth deck cabin with an ocean view facing the front of the ship was amazing. Our room stewart-es could be better but she still was OK. At least she did not bother us too much trying to get under our skin. Cabin could be cleaner overall. She missed couple of times to give us fresh towels so I had to take them from her cart my self.

We had our time dining and ate in Windjamer and Boticheli dining room. Food was just OK. We thought the sandwiches and promenade pizza were better... Drinks were just OK. Kind of pricey for a bit watered down "vacation medication"...

Gym and entertainment were very good but still felt like something seen already. We felt like we know what is coming - karaoke, law and marriage, ice show etc. Kind of like when you hear a good joke second or third time. It is funny but not like it was the first time...

Fort the future cruises we will definitely avoid excursions. They re definitely waste of money and time. Long story short, good but not great. We will try Oasys or Allure and then take a brake from cruising. Probably check again land vacations and compare values while cruising is definitely not the cheapest way to vacation.
