I really just have one important message. RCL needs to work on the main course at dinner. The line does not seem to realize how important this is. My perception and the one heard from others over and over was that the food was average at best. The truth is that breafast was really good, lunch was really good, the apetizers were sometimes excellent, the deserts were good, it's really just the main course at dinner that was between fair and poor. Unfortunately for RCL it's easy to get breakfast and lunch right. They get no credit for the abundance of fresh fruit or the wide array of choice of good food at lunch. Everyone, including me, seems to focus on that main course at dinner. We expected to be wowed and we were underwhelmed.

Everything else was great. The Florider was awesome. Tip - book a private lesson early in the cruise, it's only $60, and early in the cruise no one else will be booking the lessons so if you can book with 2 other people in your party they will hold the lesson. Officially they say they have to have 4 for a lesson but they will do it with just 3. That's 20 minutes on the Florider per person, you won't believe how fast you will progress.

We love RCL for the sports and the activities. And Liberty did not disappoint. Volleyball tournament, rock climbing, putt-putt, scuba diving, we loved it all.

Belize City

The 1 is for the city. The cave river tubing and the zip line were great.

Cozumel

Great scuba diving. Drift diving really is the way to go. No effort. Just go with the flow.
