We selected the Liberty of the Seas because of its itinerary, all the activities offered on the ship and the recent 2016 refurbishment. Royal Caribbean and the Liberty of the Seas exceeded our expectations with a great ship, great ... Read more

Dinner was amazing service. Our server, Joao, was exemplary in his service, treated us very well. 10/10 experience at dinner and kept me going back every night instead of the buffet. Food selection was good and his recommendations were on ... Read more

Main Room attendant treated us more like we were on his personal slave ship than a high end cruise ship. He busted in our room consistently throughout our stay trying to catch someone smoking. When that didn't work he went ahead and ... Read more
