Embarkation was a breeze, check-in people met us as we walked in the door. Went through security, they did check my wine bottles, and into the waiting area. We boarded and went to 270 and then up to the buffet. The buffet was a zoo as ... Read more

We took this cruise with my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and nieces (ages 11 and 5) for Spring Break. We boarded on Easter Sunday and found that several of the venues had chocolate eggs for the kids and the young at heart. It was a ... Read more

We took this cruise with my daughter, her family of 4, and my sons 2 boys (both teens). We had the boys in our room. D2-8598. It was cramped, when the sofa was converted to a bed, but still doable. The larger deck made it comfortable ... Read more

We brought our 6 year old twins on their 2nd cruise. We flew in late the night before and stayed at Riverfront Hotel the night before (booked through Priceline, very expensive because of Easter Weekend). We used Uber service from airport ... Read more

What made this cruise memorable was the group of family and friends we were with. And the Bon Jovi cover band. Other than that, the ship itself was below average on what we expect from cruising with Royal. Our stateroom attendant was ... Read more

The liberty of the seas is a clean ship. New water slides. Great for the younger crowd. Slides are slow and safe. The ship has a flow master. All ages can enjoy and experience. I saw very young to the very older. The ship staff was very ... Read more

Right from the very start, RC staff really went out of their way to ensure guests had a fantastic time! Staff was very friendly. Embarkation process was so very quick (unlike Carnival). Luggage was in our cabin by 5:00 pm and I was ... Read more

Great cruise for a family with many ages of kids for over Spring Break. Ship was clean, most workers friendly, and many activities to chose from. I was surprised at how the ship did NOT feel crowded in comparison to last year's cruise on ... Read more

I don't even understand why some have loved this cruise. 1) I put this as number 1 because it's the worst part. The food is awful. I mean AWFUL. I mean inedible at times. Everywhere that's included in the price is awful. The up-charge ... Read more

This was my third cruise with RCL, but the first one out of the Port of Tampa. It seemed like the lines weren't as long and flowed faster in Tampa than my previous experiences out of Port Canaveral. I was a little apprehensive because ... Read more

We've cruised 3 times with another company and decided to give RCI a go after hearing such rave reviews of their ships and service. We did 10 days out of Brisbane with our 10 year old son. Upon boarding, we were a little baffled as to ... Read more
