Great trip, despite Hurrican Tomas! Love the Liberty
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
In the dining room, food choices had changes somewhat, menus seemed to have a few more choices than last season, and presentation was definitely better on :Liberty than her older siblings. Our waiter, Doristo and assitant waiter Sagar were wonderful. They remembered which rolls we liked with dinner, what we liked to drink, and suggested good wines to pair with meals. They were a delight, and seemed to enjoy working with people very much.
In the Champagne Bar and in the Solarium, drink service was reasonable priced, served quickly and congenially. I really enjoyed the extra space on deck, the ease at finding a deckchair, and really had a blast watching the folks lining up for the FLOWRIDER surf simulator. The seas were a bit rough at times, and the wind whipped up a couple of days, but I had an extremely relaxing time, and really enjoyed seeing the extras that exist on this wonderful, roomy ship. It always feels familiar, comfortable, luxurious, and easy to navigate. I will sail again on Liberty of the Seas as soon as I can. Watching Adventure Ocean Pirate Night was really fun as the little ones took over the Royal Promenade. Less
Cabin review: K9307 Interior Stateroom
In cabin 9307, and had glorious sleep each night, and were never disturbed. there was, one afternoon, a plumbing issue that resulted in toilet not working for 2 hours, but nothing horrendous.Read All Interior Stateroom (K) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Had a pleasant time in ST Maarten, but after the close, hustling crowds on the narrow streets on the Dutch side, I went to the much more scenic French side and had a superb meal in a cafe. Our next stop was San Juan, and I loved the charm of the Old Town and the historic forts along the harbor. Parts reminded me of Ibiza, and Spain's mainland. People were extremely friendly and the coastline was wonderful. Hurricane Tomas was in the vicinity, so seas were getting rougher, and winds were picking up. I would definitely return to San Juan for a vacation. By the time we boarded the ship, it was announced that Tomas was about to strike Haiti that night, so we were redirected to Nassau, Bahamas, which was fine with many cruisers. I was actually looking forward to Labadee! Nassau was charming, but the winds were chilly, and strong, and due to the impact of the hurricane, there was almost no opportunity to visit beaches on this cruise. SO, i got a bit of sun on the ship.
This ship has it all!
Fantastic family cruise!
Wonderful, family-friendly cru...
