Traveled with children

This was the first, and probably last, RCCL cruise for our family of 5. We were so looking forward to it, but maybe this is just not the cruise line for us.

A little background: We're a couple with two teenagers and a 9 year old. We're pretty big travelers, having lived in 3 countries and visited a dozen or so more. We are lucky to be able to go to and stay in nice places, but we're not luxury travelers--just a family having fun. We love good food and nice accommodations, but we're not big foodies and not accustomed to 5 star care.

What we are used to is receiving basic good service and being treated with consideration and respect. Having someone in our faces trying to sell us something extra every hour of every day was really off-putting on Liberty. Everything from the spa push on day one to the gold-by-the-foot outside the dining room to the ever-present pricey cocktails and $4 bottles of water the cruise line wanted us to buy at each port felt like overkill. It just felt like everywhere we turned, someone was trying to sell us something else.
