First TIme on Liberty of the Seas

Sail Date: January 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

As usual the check-in at boarding went extremely well and we were on the ship within 30 minutes. Liberty is a beautiful ship but for some reason the service in some areas was not as great as on previous RC cruises on other ships.

Our greatest disappointment was with the quality of the food at some of the dinners. Our first night out I ordered a Mojo Grilled Pork Chop that was so tough I couldn't cut it with the steak knife. Royal Caribbean usually is top notch with food but this time...not so much. There are a few lower calorie options but not many. We ordered the wine package at $165 for 5 bottles...At best each bottle could be bought at a liquor store for less than $10. Big rip off. They could sell that package for $75 and still make a decent profit.

Our suite was great...lots of room..very clean and our stateroom attendant was very helpful in keeping our ice bucket filled twice a day.

The entertainment was OK. Jeffrey Allen did a tribute to Elton John and More lots of people walked out before he finished, which I thought was rude. The Saturday Nite Fever presentation was decent but nothing outstanding. The Ice Spectacular was over the top. The costumes were beautiful and the music great. These young skaters did a fantastic job considering that they are very limited in the size of the rink.

Disembarking took forever..we did not get off the ship until 10:30 AM. When we took the Oasis last year...we were off in less than 2 hours. Our previous RC cruises were so much better than this one. Less

Cabin review: Liberty of the Seas Junior Suite Deck 7 9558

We had a junior suite which was a good size. King bed, couch, easy chair with an ottoman and lots of space between them to move around easily. Lots of dresser space, walk in closet with shelves and storage for our luggage. Nice size bathroom with tub and shower. Clean and fairly quiet. Our balcony was quite big with room for two chaises, two chairs and a small table. Large screen TV

Port and Shore Excursions


We took a walking tour of Falmouth with a young lady named Simone who was a Falmouth native. She was very pleasant and gave us some good information on the area. We liked the tour because we could see the citizens up close and walk through their neighborhoods, seeing points of interest and hearing some historical facts about the architecture, products of the area etc.

I like to see the real parts of a port and Labadee is just a beach facility that Royal Caribbean developed for cruises. We took a catamaran tour of some of the coastal areas but did not see any real villages, except for Labadee village, at some distance. Labadee is just another tourist attraction with shopping being the main reason to put in to this port. We are not shoppers so we were not especially impressed with that and being an older couple do not participate in the beach activities.
