Went on the 5 night to Belize and Cozumel. Had a great time! We arrived at 11:40 and were on the ship by noon. Departure was just as easy. We carried our bags off at 8:30 and were in a taxi by 8:45. Liberty personnel were at the elevators telling everyone to just go straight to Deck 1. Only ate in the Windjammer three times. Once for lunch at arrival and twice for breakfast. Never had a hard time finding a table (for 6) and the waiters were reasonably attentive. It is a buffet after all. Had the late seating in the MDR and service was fantastic. Was a little nervous about ordering the lamb after reading some reviews but it was cooked perfect and fell of the bone. Prime rib was average. All the soups were very good. Escargot was replaced by small scallops but the dinner portion were large. Night 4 they have a fried seafood platter. Probably their worst dish, at least on our trip. Salmon was still moist, all cooked medium. The duck was another table favorite. Attended the ice show, Up in the Air and Saturday Night Fever. All were excellent. The rest of our party went to the comedian and I received mixed reviews. None bad however. The only issue we had all trip was the smoking on the Promenade. We enjoy sitting in the Hook and Claw with a beer. This trip we couldn't even sit at the tables outside without triggering the allergies. Surprisingly the casino was better than other cruises we've been on. Even played for an hour one night without really noticing it. Ports - Belize and Cozumel Overall the trip was excellent and the staff wonderful!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Belize City
    Belize we did the zip line excursion through RCL. Had a great time. It is a long 1.5 hours drive both ways, however. Our guide was very funny and told us a lot about the history of the country. On the way back everyone slept! Lunch was provided. OK food and there is a bar for purchasing drinks. Nothing really is around the port except the normal port stores. This seems to be a port you'd want to visit just a couple of times.

  • Cozumel
    Cozumel - Jumped in a taxi and went downtown. Walked through shops and some interesting bars for most of the day. There are some good restaurants if you go a block or so off of the main drag. Had planned on going to the beach in the afternoon but had too much fun in town. Quite a bit around the port also if you need to kill that last hour before boarding. There is so much to do in Cozumel you could stop there every cruise.
