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 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.
