Liberty of the Seas Cruise Review by Mom0511
- Sail Date: December 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Grand Suite
Service: Cruising in a suite introduces a whole new level of attention. I don't think I can ever go back to a "normal" stateroom. Our gold sea pass cards where our keys to whatever we wanted - last minute character dining - no problem - special help disembarking - no problem. On top of it, our Suite Attendant Rosen was unbelievably accommodating and super friendly.
Babies: Unlike many cruise lines, this fleet has a special dedicated splash pool for babies in swim diapers! (On most boats, those diaper clad kids can't go in any water.) The nursery staff was great with our daughter and scheduling was not a problem.
School-age: Our 7-year old loved the kids activities in the kids club as well. Our daughter loved the dine and play program - ate with us at 6:00, staff picked her up at 6:40 to escape to the club. Gave us a nice chance for a relaxing dinner and her time to play.
Excursions: Playa Mia beach break was a good little escape. Their new little water park was a hit with our two girls and the food was good.

Travel to and from the port was very comfortable (AC buses), and easy. I would say it was a bit confusing when we first disembarked the boat trying to figure out where to go (the meeting spot for Playa Mia was tucked back in a back corner).
The beach at Playa Mia was nice - not super exotic or luxurious, but nice - white sand, clear water, etc. We used one of the paddle boats and had no problems.
The new water park was very popular with our two girls, and preferred over the beach. We lounged in one of the water loungers, which was very nice, while our oldest played in the waterpark. They could use more lounge chairs and tables in this area, but it wasn't very crowded, so we were able to find a place to sit our stuff.
The food on the buffet was very good. Authentic and yummy.
