Liberty of the Seas Cruise Review by Graham Thompson
- Sail Date: April 2012
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom
We sailed from Barcelona and the embarkation process took less than 25 minutes which considering the number of passengers was very good. We immediately went to the cabin which was larger than normal for an inside and was in pristine condition thanks to our wonderful cabin steward (Finster). On exploring her we realized it would take some time to take it all in due to the size. The interactive t.v. monitors are a big help to finding your way around. The cleaniness of every public area could not be faulted due to the tireless work of the onboard staff and without doubt in every department be it Bars, Restaurants or any other area they were among the best we have encountered on any cruise. The food in the speciality restaurant Choppes was excellent but we felt that throughout the rest of the ship is was good but not outstanding although they have a nice couple of snack eateries on the The Royal Promenade. The selection of drinks was good and the cocktails were nice and strong priced from ($7 to $10).
Overall the Liberty has everything for Family cruising with top shows on offer every night. It may not appeal to traditional cruisers but you would be hard pressed not to have a wonderful time taking in the luxury of The Liberty of the Seas. One disappointment for some cruisers was the fact the tenders from ship to shore at Cannes could not be operated due to the swell but that was not the fault of Royal Caribbean.

Rome (Civitavecchia)The port for Rome was Citavecchia which in itself is more of a working town with a nice promenade and cafe bars in which to relax. Most people seem to visit Rome from this port.View All 1,883 Rome (Civitavecchia) Cruise Port Reviews
