Ship Facts: Liberty of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Liberty of the Seas Deck Plans
Never thought I'd Love a non-port-intensive cruise!
We booked this cruise as a last-minute getaway. Hurricane season offers great prices and a bit of motion, but it's a ship, on water, right? Movement is part of the package.

Check-in took longer than expected due to long lines at Security. RCI check-in was fast, though.

Liberty is a beautiful ship and was immaculate throughout the cruise. We never saw a single thing out of place, which is surprising with that many cruisers aboard. The length of the ship offers lots to do and does a good job of making the ship feel less crowded. We only saw the Production shows, and they were really, really good. Other reviewers feel differently, but I think this is one area where RCI really shines.

Chops was by far, the best restaurant aboard. We ate there more than once, and the service and food were perfection. It is worth the additional charge - a $100+ meal for $25. Portofino recently changed its menu, and all in our group were disappointed. An Italian restaurant with no pasta dishes?

This was our first experience with My Time Dining (MTD). It is apparently very popular, as many were wait-listed for it. Eating when we were ready was a huge benefit, and we will definitely do it again. Main dining room food and service when you want it!

Bar service was excellent, and we were impressed that servers remembered our names after one visit. Throughout the week, and around the ship, they would call us by name to say "hello". Very impressive.

Labadee is not listed here as a port to comment on, but I could not go without saying it was absolutely beautiful! The service on Labadee was outstanding! As always, RCI was offloading relief and building supplies for Haiti during our port time. It was good to see RCI's continued support of Haiti in that way.

The lack of ports ended up being a real plus, as we came home relaxed rather than exhausted. 2 days at sea allowed us to relax and unwind, and short port days kept us from too much heat and sun. RCI got this one right when choosing the itinerary.
