Very Disapointed!: Liberty of the Seas Cruise Review by cherylk2009

My take on the ship is that it is beautiful, clean and large, however, RC made sure that everything on the cruise is an absolute money maker for them, nothing is free, and I mean nothing....Furthermore, if it is free, then be prepared to wait in extensive lines and study your brochure as to operating/opening times as they make sure it is very limited if it is a free activity. I never felt this way on Carnival cruises, as they seemed to offer alot more and the Carnival CHILDREN'S CLUB was much much better. You always saw the children staff members everywhere. Also, we could never get machines in the fitness center..packed. Also, $12.00 for a Spinning class or other organized class. Internet service was 55 cents a minute and slow! Jonny Rockets was $4.95 a person cover charge and from there we were told you had to pay for your items. Lastly, the lines were atrocious and a complete insult. When we arrived in the port to board at noon it took over two hours in lines to board. We waited over an hour in a stuffed hallway in utter heat to de-board in Labadee, same for Jamaica. You never saw staff members during this time explaining or updating the waits. Elderly and handicapped adults were pushed and treated like cattle. Thankfully, my children are older and able to handle this but if they were younger I would have panicked for their safety. Considering my family spent over $12,000 for our cruise, I was so disgusted with how we were treated. The food was better than Carnival to an extent, however, Carnival offered Midnight Buffets and different types of appetizer prior to dinner, such as Sushi etc.. Also, one buffet area for breakfast and 4,500 people on the boat does not go over well..... Pure chaos, with people bumping and pushing, as well as long, long lines/ Breakfast was pure bedlam, over a 45 minute wait for eggs or omelets. Also, on the last day they had an afternoon buffet, this we were was told was to replace their discontinuance of the midnight buffet....What a joke, I can't even explain how pathetic it was, and to add insult to injury people were waiting in 20 minute lines to get a friggin piece of cheese or chocolate. Also, everyone was told when it ran out, it ran out..This buffet was set up in the middle of the shops and the shops had a big "clearance" Sale...A BIG JOKE!!! The best part of my trip was my stay in Hollywood, FL prior to the cruise for two nights. Less
