  3. Liberty of the Seas
Okay we don't cruise often, but we do listen to the experience of others. So wanting to do something different to celebrate our 50th birthdays we booked to cruise on Liberty of the Sea.

Liberty means freedom right? Freedom to take you for a ride around the Med and empty your bank account!

Having paid for our holiday we didn't expect to pay for it all over again.

The dining experience was good, but why not include a glass of wine with the meal? and why wasn't coffee included? Both could be ordered and paid for of course but having paid for the dining experience in advance I still don't understand why these weren't included.

Windjammers - don't go!

Okay that's not quite the true picture, don't go if the ship is at sea. If you happen not be on an excursion while in port, Windjammers is a potential lunch option, of course you can snack in the Promenade Caffe and pay stupid prices for the same snack available for free in Winjammers.

If you like a bit of personal space while sunbathing - don't cruise on this ship!

Okay not quite true, sunbathe on days when the ship is in port and most passengers have gone ashore, don't expect to have any personal space when cruising!

Cabin though was very good, clean well lit and everything we did not expect! Enough space to move around, sit comfortably on the balcony or inside and bathroom facilities all clean and functioning.

Would we go again?

No. The ship was too big and is trying to cater for all tastes all of the time and not really satisfying any of them.

Hmmmmmmm!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin E1 8278
8278 midship just fore of the cantilevered jacuzzis, really quiet, nice smooth sailing experience and good size. Didn't expect sunbeds on balcony and didn't get them, just a nice spot to sit when the rest of the ship is really busy.
