Sail Date: Jul 2023
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony
Traveled with children

We sailed on Liberty with a group of three: my partner and I (mid/late 30s) and his son (9). This was my third experience with Royal as an adult, second for my partner, and the kiddo's very first cruise.

We chose this sailing because we wanted to leave from a port within driving distance of our home in central NY and because I love Bermuda. On the whole, our experiences were positive.

Food in the MDR wasn't great. I had some absolute awful appetizers, do not order the buffalo chicken dip or the spinach artichoke dip. Custard desserts were also terrible. We did like the arancini, crab cake, and Caribbean chicken. Cake/pie/cobbler dessert were consistently good. Our servers were wonderful. Our assistant waiter had our drinks waiting on our second night. Food in the Windjammer was pretty good for breakfast and lunch. Avocado toast and yogurt parfaits were my standard. There was a pretty good selection at every meal. Service was wonderful here, too. Tables were bussed regularly, servers circulated with trays of the included drinks (juices, iced tea, fruit punch, etc), which made life easier. We did not have dinner in the Windjammer at any point, which was a mistake. We also had pizza at Sorrento's on several occasions, which was substantially better than I expected. It wasn't amazing, but it was always fresh and hot, and the flavor was decent.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Our cabin was the farthest forward balcony cabin on Deck 7. The view was amazing. You can see out to the helicopters pad. It was a great place for sailaway.

The cabin itself was dated. The couch was old, the flooring on the balcony had significant signs of wear, and the bathroom clothesline didn't snap back in place. The TV was a flat screen, but it was an older model. It was reasonably spacious and had lots of room for storage. Suitcases fit easily under the bed. There's no outlet on either side of the bed, which is inconvenient. The hairdryer in the room is adequate for a rough dry, but I'd bring another tool to actually style your hair. We're the kind of people who will hang out in the cabin for a couple of hours in the afternoon. We had enough space to play a card game pretty comfortably.

The bathroom wall tiny, as expected on a cruise. There are sliding doors on the shower, much nicer than a shower curtain. There's no shaving bar on the shower wall.
