Liberty of the Seas - Cruise Review
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The layout of the ship was great. We have been on some ships where it is necessary to go outside to get from one area to the other. Not the case with the Liberty. The only place it ever felt crowded was in the Windjammer. Truly, the only area of disappointment. It just isn't capable of seating everyone for meals. The More first day at sea we went there for breakfast. We had to walk around for a while to find a seat and then my husband sat down while I went to get food. Despite announcements being made asking people not to hang out at the tables, seating was limited. Because of the lines and amount of time it took to eat breakfast, we ordered room service for breakfast the two mornings we were in port. The second day at sea we ate breakfast in the main dining room and it was much nicer.
Making show reservations before sailing is totally unnecessary. We weren't asked for our cards to show proof of reservations for any of them. The shows were excellent. We purchased the drink package which we regret. It was $55/day per person and included beer/house wine/liquor. The house wine included chardonnay, merlot and cabernet and weren't good at all. My husband and I are wine drinkers so this was a disappointment.
We ate dinner the last night in Chops Grille and it was worth the $30/person cover charge. We also at at Johnny Rocket for lunch one day for a $5/person cover charge. It was good, but despite the fact that we had purchased the drink package, beer wasn't included there. Kind of silly.
We were pleasantly surprised to hear that we could stay in our cabins until it was time to go to the meeting area to disembark. On all the other cruises we've been on, we had to be out of our cabins by around 8 am and sit in a public area until called to disembark. Disembarking is never pleasant but again, nothing out of the ordinary on Liberty. It probably took about an hour to get from our station, through Customs and to the bus to take us back to the airport.
We travelled with my 23 year old son and daughter-in-law and had a wonderful time. Please feel free to ask me any questions! Less
Cabin review: E26596 Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
We were in cabin 6596 in the middle of the ship. It was a Category E2. We were happy with the location of the cabin although felt it was a little small. The bathroom door was in front of the closets so it was a little awkward.Read All Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (E2) Reviews >>
