We're first time cruisers, and traveled with two childrend, ages 6 & 4. We booked this trip as a way to do something special for the kids. Chose this particular cruise and cruiseline b/c of the Dream Works commercials. Our kids LOVE Dream Works movies and think the characters are "cooler" than Disney.
Our ship, Liberty of the Seas, was beautiful. It was bigger, newer and nicer than any other ship we saw. In fact, it blew the other ships away in eye appeal. Everything was spotless inside and out.
Our boys were too small for the Flow Rider and the rock climbing wall, but they loved the mini-golf and the arcade, and especially enjoyed the great H2O Zone splash park area and the little lazy river and hottubs in the kids' area. We also enjoyed the large 3-D movie theater w/ Dream Works movies.
we had adjoining rooms, 8281 & 8279. We've never cruised before, but we were pleasantly surprised at the room size. suitcases fit under the bed, closet and drawers were big enough for all of our clothing. It was a quiet location on the ship. nothing negative at all to say about the rooms.
