Ship Facts: Liberty of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Liberty of the Seas Deck Plans
Frst time cruiser with down to earth review
After two months of waiting and reading the reviews on this site, the sun burn has set in and the 5 day cruise is all over with. As an avid boater this had been a dream for both my wife and I. We were able to talk our neighbors, also boaters, to cough up some money and set sail. After many nights of reviewing different boats and destinations, the Liberty of the Seas sailing to Belize and Cozumel, to be the cruise of choice.

We boarded the ship Saturday morning at 10:00am in Fort Lauderdale it was obvious that Royal Carribean was the right choice. The boat stood out in port being one of the two largest ships in port that day. Just looking around staff were present cleaning any and every inch on the ship. As we set sail all the staff was both helpful and polite. As I write this review, please note that I am a plumber from Illinois and my wife is in the insurance field, both of us being 37 and 38. With this we did not take part in any formal nights, excursions and little activities on the ship. We did get off the ship at each port, shopping being the main focus.

Just to touch base on some subjects that I was looking for and were talked about in other reviews. The boat, you feel like you are on a floating resort. Very clean and well up kept. Plenty to do and never felt crowded in any area that we were in. Casino, the short time we were in there a fair amount of winners being announced.

Food, ate the dining room first night, food ok, but not our style. Windjammer buffet was popular spot, breakfast nice and hot, but just your average buffet food. Lunch and dinners were too nice and hot with any and every option one could want. Went to Chops one night,worth every dollar for upgrade. Appetizers and main meat best of the cruise, also had a great view. Most nights resorted to Sorrento's Pizza. Best pizza on the boat, always hot and fresh with small lines. Jonny Rockets was also a popular stop, a must see. Drinks were not too far out of line. We drank mostly beers, that set you back approx 5.75 a beer, mixed drinks around 7.75 per drink. I bought the soda card and for one who drinks a lot of soda, well worth the $30.00. At. Round pool most of the time and there were plenty of waiters to make sure you had a cold drink in your hand. All and all cabin upgrade to balcony was worth the money. And room was perfect. Showers a little small, but served our needs. Zillio, the stateroom cleaner was perfect, For a first time cruiser, I thought the service was over the top and the whole experience was beyond perfect. For getting off the boat at the end of the cruise, we chose the self carry luggage option, which allowed us to get off the ship at 7:30am.

All and all pleasantly surprised with all aspects of the cruise and the service. Did i mention watching the Super Bowl sitting in a hottub was the best. Will be planning second cruise in the near future. Happy cruising!
